Noisy Tuniq tower Fan

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My systems really quiet except for the Tuniq Towers fan...i like to keep it at max for best cooling but it just is really loud. Whats a good Fan to Replace it with that isn't loud at full but moves just as much, if not more air

I know what this is going to sound like, so please forgive me: just turn it down. I mean, it's not necessary to have it up all the way. For example, the only time I ever turn it up all the way is for stress testing. And I found that I don't need it up all the way even for that.

So, if you haven't done so already, try turning it all the way down while watching your temps for a few minutes. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Well since you're probably in the market for a new fan now that you've broken the Tuniq one, I'd recommend getting the Noctua NF-S12-1200. It may have an ugly color, but you won't really see it since it goes in the Tuniq Tower. The Noctua NF-S12-1200 has the best noise-to-CFM ratio. It's very quiet for the amount of air that is pushes.

Good fan, but the P12 would be better for a heatsink.

S12s are good as case fans though.
