Help quiet my Vantec Tornado

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've got an 80MM Vantec Tornado. I love this fan it cools my Motherboard wonderfully. There is like a 10 degree drop! But, everybody knows it sounds like a hairdryer. Anybody know how to quiet this fan, and also allow it to still push air well?

Only thing I could suggest would be to get a fan controller for it and quiet it down that way. Otherwise, you could buy a quieter high cfm fan. Just my 2 ideas.

Well.... why did you get it in the first place? Anything to quiet the fan will make it weaker.

Your options:
A) Get a 120mm fan that can push the same amount of air for less noise.
B) Get fan controller to slow it down.
C) Get another 80mm fan to replace it.
Once again...
