Has anyone ever used fan grommets? I'm trying to reduce vibration from my fans (one of my fans is making a noise), and I was wondering if they worked or if they were a gimmick. Does anyone else use anything for fan stabilization/vibration?
Two of my chassis fans have those little guys, and it does seem like they help. They can be a real pain in the behind to install in certain places, but I'd go for them.
In some cases, they help quite a bit, in other cases, it's really not much of a use.
I know I added two 120's to the top of my case, and since they were attached directly to the sheet metal, they were making quite a racket. After the grommets, they're silent.
