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
. In the best case someone may actually know the D14BH-12 model from yate loon and could give me first hand experience?
