Just watch Richard Hammonds miracle of nature. He pointed out that serrated edges reduce sound. This is found with the owl and Noctua has a fan with this design.

I have x2 arctic F14 fans. Do you think it may help if I serrate the edges of these fans myself with a circular file.

AIM: make my fans quieter

It is likely that removing material from the blades will throw them out of balance and shorten their life. It may also have the opposite effect and make them louder. If you want to reduce noise. it's best to replace the fans with quieter ones and use noise suppression devices instead.
