Hi, I have had my XFX Pro 750w PSU for a while now, a year I believe. And the amount of noise the fan makes drives me crazy after a while and I was wondering what fan I could change it too.
I want a fan that moves a decent amount of air but is also pretty much silent. The rest of the components in my system are nice and quiet, it's just the PSU that makes all the noise. Just to be clear, the fan I want to change is the one IN the PSU itself so I need to know what connection it is. I already know that the fan itself is 135 x 135 x 25 mm according to XFX's website.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
That PSU was reviewed by JohnnyGuru who wrote in the Hot Testing page "It was this set of tests that told me the platform was starting to show some strain by the 750W level. The fan got a little audible. It was never what I would call loud, just... there." Is yours behaving like that or is the fan always running full speed?
@GhislainG The fan is very audible all the time, almost like its running 100% all the time. It has done this since I had it but I just never got around to doing anything about it.
@rolli59 I know for sure I want to replace the fan as I have already contacted XFX and they said get in contact with the seller (the unit was bought brand new from a top rated seller on ebay) so I did and they basically said there was nothing they could do and I can't afford to get a quieter one, plus I don't mind about the warranty so all I want to know is what fan connection the PSU uses (2-pin or 3-pin I assume) and what would be a good choice for a fan that would move a lot of air and be near enough silent. Like I said before the fan size is 135 x 135 x 25 mm
