Advice on 140mm Fans buzzing noise

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey, i am having some problems with my Sharkoon 140mm fan (1500 rpm) i have 2 of them and im using a Akasa FC.SIX AK-FC-08BK Fancontroller, and the sharkoons are making a "loud" or very intruding buzzing noise, the fans move alot of air so at highspeed they give a good "air movement sound" wich is good ofc, but at low speed that buzzing noise is killing me, i have a scythe gentle typhoon 1850rpm wich just works brilliant and is really silent while moving alot of air,

so basicly, i need that sharkoons to stop buzzing or find another solution like either buying some gentle typhoons to replace(kinda dont wanna do that since i want 140mm fans for my 4x140mm fan spots) so i was looking at Thermalright X-Silent 140 wich ive heard should be good for that price (same price as the typhoons where im living (denmark)) the buzzing noise is the important part in this topic, any help, ideas? anything?


oh and its some electrical thing or something cause i got curious to see if it was the blades or anything so i held the blades and turned them on and it was that buzzing again(without the fan was spinning)

It's bearing noise. I would suggest getting Scythe Slipstream 140mm fans if you opt for 140mm size. For 120mm size fan, Scythe Kama Flow 2 are even better because they have fluid dynamic bearing (FDB) with very long lifetime.

GentleTyphoon's are also great fans, but costs twice as much as Slipstreams.

The buzzing noise is there even if i hold the fan(so it doesnt spin) so i dont think its the bearings, besides i already did oil them up, but thanks for the concern smile.gif
