As shown in this recent review of ST45SF-G, the fan in V2.0 has been changed to an ADDA AD0812HB-D70. Here are the basic specs:

Bearing: Ball
Current: 0.18A
Max. Speed: 3200rpm
Max. Airflow: 29.9CFM
Max. Noise: 33.4dBA
Pressure: 3.28mm

Hope this helps!

Thanx for the help. Don't really understand why they changed the fan though. Perhaps they preferred a silent model for the review? I think I'll try the Noiseblocker with the upside-down placement trick.

Thanx a lot!

The reviewer did not change the fan, I was just showing you guys that we updated the fan in V2.0 of ST45SF-G!

with a lower CFM and static pressure requirement, it should be alot easier to find replacements for it. just remember the CFM and more importantly the static pressure of the fan is selected based on the needs of the PSU, so i wouldn't go too far below that.

I did this yesterday exactly as sieade245 and it was well worth the 20 GBP or something for the nb blacksilent pro pwm.
For some reason I got version 1.1 of the psu from a store two weeks ago.
Anyway, it worked.
Now to replace the stock i5 cooler with something better, I am thinking noctua nh-l9i.

Hey guys,
so ST45SF-G has only space for 15mm right? So fans from noctua are out of game? :/

I'm bit worried about that static pressure.

No issues after fan replacement? smile.gif

No, no problems.

Edit:
Oh, and the fan in my version 1.1 psu had this on the sticker:
young lin
tech co, ltd
dc brushless fan
model: dfb801512h
dc 12V 2W

Hi,

i'm also interested to replace the fan inside the ST45SF-G. 33 dB (at max) is quite a bit too loud according to my other components.

Because a 80mm fan is inside the psu, maybe the Noctua NF-R8 will fit without limitations? I don't know if the height fits and i can't find something about the pressure on this page. But there's also a PWM edition available (do i need this edition instead?) where a static pressure of 1.41 mm is mentioned. This is indeed lower as with the included fan.

Or are there some alternatives (the Noiseblocker NB-BlackSilentPro is 120mm, does it really fit?)?

edit:

overlooked that, a 80mm BlackSilentPro fan is available
