I dont plan on changing my PSU; as everything is already wired and cable managed, but i was wondering if i could change the fan to a more silent one without putting my PSU at risk of thermal degradation. -- Meaning, still maintaining the same "air flow" my current fan does, but with a quieter, more advanced fan blade design
Could i switch it out with a more expensive Noctua fan? Does it have to be high in static pressure? Or can it be one of those air flow focused fans, like an AF140, instead of going for a pressure fan like an SP120 or Gentle Typhoon.... ?
What fan should i go for?
Currently at 100% load it is too loud for my liking and i dont want to buy a new PSU. It is currently the loudest thing in my PC, my fans are absolutely dead silent at the distance i play from my PC, but the PSU is definitely audible and i wish to minimize that noise as much as i can without having to buy a new PSU.
