Ultra Silent Fans... Do they exist? - Page 10

In case anyone has some ideas on HDD silencing that would be helpful as well, since its a bit tricky with the HDD cages in the Antec 1200. Made another thread for it though, since that really is getting into a different topic. wink.gif

Did a bit of research on my powersupply (toughpower 1000w from thermaltake) and came to the result that there is a 140mm rebranded yate loon fan built into the PSU. The source is here, look at the pictures or read the few words. So I tried looking up that specific Yate Loon 140mm 2800rpm model tt1425 and (of course) didn't find anything because I overlooked the tiny font on the fan that gave the true non-rebranded model label, which read the following: D14BH-12(L-SSS). That gave me more of a hint towards possible yate loon fans, but again I couldn't find anything except for the fact that a 140mm fan at 2800 rpm is loud. Now this may be a stereotype, but I assume the general tendency of fans at that speed would be pointing towards the loud end. So when I was trying to figure out what on earth was still making noise in my case (it couldn't be the fans I just got because I tested each and every one alone, unmounted, and then mounted, and ofcourse in unison, and figured they are inaudible) I realized that the PSU was providing a larger portion of the noise than I expected. It was louder than the dual GTX680's (not under max load of course, but the fan curve for those cards is amazingly well done) in most situations. Since I am completely new to testing power supplies on their own, without any load, and am rather doubtful at the outcome of jumpering such a psu, I wanted to ask if anyone else has a Toughpower 1000W PSU and agrees that it is loud. Or if anyone just agrees with most 140mm fans being loud at 2800 rpm, since my PSU does not seem to slow down its fan at all mad.gif. In the best case someone may actually know the D14BH-12 model from yate loon and could give me first hand experience?

Why not crack it open and put a new fan in? I've done it to my last two PSU's without issue. I've yet to see the fan on my Super flower start, ever. Does the air exhausted by your PSU feel warm? If so I wouldn't replace the fan as it requires the cooling.

Had the Thermaltake Toughpower XT 875W with a Yate loon 140mm fan that was unbearably loud, always seemed to spin at max. Swapped it for a corsair hx750 which had the D14BH-12 fan that was also loud, replaced the D14BH-12 with a Noiseblocker BlackSilentPRO PK-2 which is almost silent.
If you do replace the fan make sure the fan you choose has a low start up voltage.

Yes it does feel rather warm, so I don't think I should screw with the cooling power (at least not in a negative way).

Does the start up voltage really matter if the PSU has the fan max the whole time anyway?

I believe the D14BH-12 starts at 4.35v if you have a fan that only starts at 7.9v like the noctua nf-p14, then the psu will have achieved a higher operating temp before the fan kicks in. The fan will start later and stay at a higher rpm to cool the psu, then you have the possibility of the fan stopping again as the voltage drops.
If the new fan starts at roughly the same temp and voltage as the original fan, it should operate as the D14BH-12 but at much lower rpm and acoustic level. I just tried the D14BH-12 at 12v and 5v, At 5v it was the loudest fan in my system sounding much louder and spinning slower than my noctua f12 at 1500rpm.

Possibly Getting Some Fans with high rpm and airflow with Low noise and get some rubbed Screw things to act as screws that should absorb any Vibration and Possibly a good case smile.gif

Call Thermaltake and have them replace the hovercraft, unless you purchased it over 5 years ago. Their RMA process is pretty good. Then if you're down for some retail therapy, put it in a drawer and pick up a Super Flower platinum, imo. The 850 is overkill but whatever. The Superflower has a switch on it that turns on an econo-mode where the fan won't start to spin til it reaches about 45c which will be almost never.

It's not the only psu with a thermally controlled fan but the physical switch provides some assurance. Also I would bet that the platinum 850, or even 750 puts out more solid power than the TT-1000. I recently replaced my Thermaltake 850 bronze with the SF-650 and the super flower makes the TT seem like a potato with some wires attached. Plus their mascot is a purple butterfly, which is awesome.

So you are saying there is a more stable voltage level or there is a higher ampere throughput? Kinda confused because I would asumme a lower-watt PSU has less amps (and ofcourse same voltage) but then again you could also be referring to voltage fluctuations.
