Thanks for your post, unfortunately the Yateloon fan fitted to the AX1200 is a non standard wired fan, it also has a micro 4 pin plug on the end of the wire. I have just replaced it with a Akasa viper PWM 140mm fan, and it's running very quietly. I did it by cutting the wire of the Yateloon fan and soldered a 4 pin extension cable, making an adapter cable for use with any 4 or 3 pin fan. If anyone is interested in doing the same here's correct wiring:-

extension cable______________yateloon cable

black ______________________black
yellow______________________green
green______________________yellow
blue________________________blue

Please be aware that sometime extension wires come in the following colours:-



black______________________black
red________________________green
yellow_____________________yellow
blue_______________________blue

I hope this post will help with anyone who is thinking about replacing the noisey yateloon fan. Be warned you will lose your warranty on your AX1200 and you must be careful in handling any PC PSU, as it may still hold a charge high enough to kill you, even hours after, when not plug into the mains!

Hi, glad to help out, the noise from that yateloon fan can drive any person crazy. I have been running my PC, for the last three days without problems on the Akasa Viper, hope that will be the case for you on the Noiseblocker fan.

Best Regards
attamans.

I would like to say BIG thanks to attamans for this post as it help me dealing with the crappy Yate Loon D14BH-12 fan fitted to the AX1200.

Since water cooling my PC i notice a strange high pitched buzzing noise after a through investigation I concluded that it was coming from the Yate Loon D14BH-12 fan fitted inside the Corsair Ax1200.

I could not live with live with this noise and took the plunge knowing that it would void my warranty but I live far away and to ship it back to Cosair for replacement will probably cost me a ton and the replacement would be still fitted the crappy Yate Loon D14BH-12 fan.



Fan removed warranty void !!!



No turning back now !!!

I went for Noctua's new NF-A14 FLX as I am using a push pull config on my top rad Hardware Labs Black Ice GT Xtreme 280mm, these fans are silent and give great airflow.



Hopefully these two will make a great combo.



Now for the tricky bit the wiring.

I used attamans wiring diagram hoping I would not receive a large BANG!!! once I hit the power switch remembering that I have just voided my warranty.



My new loop consisted of the low noise adaptor from Noctua's NF-F12 PWM fan Part no NA-RC8 which has means if needed I could replace the NF-A14 FLX with any other PWM 14cm fan or use a standard 3 pin version.

I had tested the Noctua NF-A14 FLX with the adaptor prior fitting and the fan run at just under 950 rpms approx which was super silent but still producing decent air flow.

A closer look, note wiring as per attamans spec.



Ok... so far so good now for the rebuild.

Everthing went back together as easy as it came apart.



From another angle.



Fitted to PC.



The end result my PC is now uber silent with no more high pitched buzzing noise. Temps have remained the same as before I changed the fan and after 3 weeks of gaming sessions up 5 hours long I have not had a single problem.

Again I would like to BIG thanks to attamans and OC net for sharing the info.

Thanks for the guide! I'm thinking of going the same route and voiding the warranty. For those who have switched out their fans, have you since run into any issues?

Hi, I have had no issues to report since replacing the Yate loon D14BH-12 fan. My Corsair AX1200 psu is running without any problems on the Akasa Viper 140mm PWM since my original post. You have to remember that the D14BH-12 is a 7 bladed fan, whilst the Viper is a 9 bladed fan which means it should be more efficient, also the AX1200 have a myriad of protection systems built in to prevent overheat and such, non have kicked in since I replaced the D14BH-12. My AX1200 is powering the following component's:-

AMD Phenom II X6 1100T processor 3.31 GHz
Asus Sabretooth motherboard
2X Gigabyte 6770 graphics cards
32GB DDR3 memory
2TB Hard drive
4TB Hard drive
10x Case & CPU fans
Pioneer Blu ray writer
Asus DVD writer

I run my computer upwards of 10 plus hours each day, and temperatures have remain the same as before replacement of the D14BH-12. The only thing that is different since I got rid of the Yate Loon is the noise, no more buzzing sounds from the computer, which was very noticeable when I used the computer at night. I am also using a Demciflex 140mm filter on the Ax1200 to stop as much dust from getting inside as possible and also using Belkin Cube surge protector. You have to think of the risk of voiding the warranty against having to live with the noise produced from the D14BH-12 fan, I myself have no regrets, 7 years with that buzzing sound would have driven me crazy!

Hi

I have had no issues also.

As Attamans said temps has remains the same if not cooler and more to the point pc is now super silent.

Just remember to follow the wiring guide from Attamans(hope my pics help).

I use a 4 pin extension cable meaning I could use any 14cms PWM fan or a standard 3 pin 14cms fan.

Like Attamans i have no regrets.

Hope this helps and good luck..

thanx for this realy nice Guide.
I changed the Fan from my Corsair AX1200i with the Akasa but now the fan still turns with 540 rpm in passiv mode.
when i Change to aktive mode in the Software it runs at 740 by 40% and 1700 by 100%. So i think it should be correct connected.
What can i do that the fan is also passiv like the orginal one ? Must i take a Fan with a higher starting voltage ?
