Fan noise. Why.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So yesterday my new fans came in the mail. Super stoked, right? Set up a push/pull on my radiator because I could, and i get this "vvvrrrrrrrrrr" noise. I already know what is causing it, its the interference from the grate in front of the fan. So, here is where it gets good. I cannibalized a 3-ring notebook cover and made some kind of spacer. To no avail, its nowhere near as bad. But wow. I just cant seem to get rid of it. I'm almost to the point of mounting the fan outside of the case.

What do I dooooooo?

1. take your old fans and guy the motor/blades out of the frames

2 attach new fans to the now empty fan housings from the old fans

3. mount to radiator

4. enjoy silence
