Got a Blade Master 120mm for my intake as the specs are pretty good, reasonable cfm, high rpm and high air pressure while supposedly pretty quiet

Got it today and well, really dissapointed

At very very very low speeds its fine but as soon as you get to half its full speed the noise starts and its really loud especially at full power

It completely drowns out my 2 NF-P14 noctua fans on my heatsink...

Is it suppose to be this loud??

Its too loud for normal use anyway so can someone recommend something else? Its for a very restricted intake fan... (Thermaltake DH101 case)

Is it positioned vertical or horizontal ? If you put it on top as intake, they tend to make noise because of Ball Bearings. If it's on bottom as intake or front or rear, then it might be faulty.

Hmm, check if it does the same thing while not bolted on, just standing on the desk. Maybe the material it's bolted on is rattling.

You were right

Turned out to be the case, it didnt like to be boted right next to the metal of the case, spaced it out with the little vibration damper things that came with the fan and now the problem is solved

Thanks
