Great site guys
I want to mod my enermex PSU to make it much quieter. The exhaust air is barely warm normally, but noise is excessive after 10mins startup.
I have the PSU in a Yeong Yang server cube case, and it is away from the motherboard. The PSU is mounted with the 90mm fan pointing upwards, on the top, unlike in a normal case. It then has a good 30cm clear space, before it reaches the top of the case. No heat is generated around it.
Soooo.....my idea is scrap the 80mm fan, and replace the 92mm with a quieter one, maybe a panaflo or zalman at 7v. Blowing air upwards, which should work with convection.
Is the idea likely to work - provide enough airflow - keep the bits cool enough? I would be very interested in anyones comments.
