Hello again guys.

Apologies, I had completely forgotten about this thread until I got an email about it today so sorry if anybody asked me a question and never got a response.

Just an update. Fan is still working fine. Nice and quiet still and rig does not get hot, primarily used for video conversion now.

Just replaced the fan in my V2.0 with the NB-BlackSilentPRO, using a 2-pin to 3-pin connector. The old fan was noticeably loud but my computer is now nice and quiet. Thanks everyone for the recommendation!

I first plugged the fan into my motherboard and it produced a rather annoying ticking sound at lower RPMs, but thankfully this wasn't a problem with it inside the PSU.

So Guys, who have replaced Fan with Noiseblocker one - can you tell me if it is audible during idle, or web browsing ?
I have 450W Gold PSU and really dislike fan being loud on idle and low load tasks like web surfing or similar....
It starts at 1200-1300 RPM, and Noiseblocker starts from 700 rpm.
P.S. I'm a silence freak - and like NOT TO HEAR my system works in quiet empty room.

I like. When you said you had to move the power connector was you didn't have to cut anything right? I almost want to buy the PSU and use that fan.

Noctua A9x14 is available for an order for me.
However does someone know for sure if I can just plug it in & move the connector or something else has to be done ?

Thanks

The connector slots into the PSU enclosure. You'll need something that can cut SECC steel: a handsaw or dremel.

thanks for heads up WiSK ! Nice to see you here as well as on HaRd forum :-)

this is a bit unfortunate - was really hoping to avoid cutting into the steel... Is the enclosure can be stripped of the electronics before doing this ?

I actually ordered Noiseblocker fan mentioned in the start of this topic , but shipper from UK posted it without tracking number and package most likely got lost as I never received it mad.gif

Have you by any occasion happen to test both these fans ?
Noctua will cost me abt 15 EUR while Noiseblocker - 35 EUR redface.gif due to delivery costs
Which one is quieter on idle ?

thanks for help

I have not tried the Noctua because it's a little bit underpowered for the PSU. My rigs are running at load for [email protected], so I can't afford to let the PSU overheat.

I'm not saying it doesn't work well, it probably does, but I need mine for 24/7 use and I prefer to be a bit safer.

So I also expect the Noctua would be quieter at load because lower max rpm, I don't know about idle unfortunately.
