Replacement for Silverstone ST1500 135mm fan

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My fan is making a horribly annoying clicking sound and I would like to replace it. Does anyone know if I can use any generic 135mm fan or what the preferred CFM rating would be? Thanks in advance.

Is there any reason you cannot RMA the unit? I'd at the very least contact Silverstone first and see what they say, a clickly fan should be covered.

If for some reason they tell you to pound sand... you can try to replace it with this. I'm really unsure of what a preferred CFM rating would be but, it doesn't help that 135mm fans seem to be extremely few and far between unfortunately. :\

The other fan option... and I'm not sure if this is even viable, would be to use the Zalman 135mm fan. The problem with this fan is that the mounting holes are in a 120mm position to be more universally compatible

I'd really try to get an RMA going though.

My PSU is out of warranty. I called Silverstone and they said that there was nothing that they could do. Purchased the Scythe fan on newegg a few moments ago. Didn't really see any other options.
