MY PSU

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Is the noisy culprit in my case, It's very loud.

Anyway to slow the fan down ? (it's the one in my sig)

It's also clean.

If I cut the grid thing out the bottom of my case would that lower the noise ? I've tried making it sit higher off the floor. But nothing had changed.


Thanks.

You can change the fan if you don't mind voiding your warranty, otherwise you simply have to live with it or buy a different PSU.

Ah, Gt Yarmouth, oh I remember that place... lol
Least it's not Gorleston tongue.gif

You're not really stressing the 700w of power it provides, so your easiest option may be just to put a nice powerful, but quiet fan on the front of the PSU to see if the extra airflow shuts up the one inside it, if not, then replacing the fan inside it would be your next step. Modifying the case grills may help somewhat but noisy fans will only be a little quieter with lower restriction. If I were you, I'd seriously look at replacing the PSU with a quieter one rather than opening it up to swap fans and voiding the warranty, plus there's always the risk of touching something inside and the potentially lethal voltages that are in there.

Yeah I think It's time I treat myself to a modular, I don't think the one I have is very reliable either.

And I would rather live in Gorleston than Yarmouth, Moved back before Christmas ARGH.

I've already Void the Warranty when I took it apart to clean it, It was filthy with dust and fluff.... Could line a coat with the amount of crap in it before.

Have you tried a small piece of rubber or weatherstripping under the corners of the PSU (assuming it's a bottom mount, the top if it's not)? I used a few bits of a silicone fan grommet attached with electrical tape. It's worth a try before you spend the money on a new PSU.
