Just wondering, is it possible to replace the 120mm fan on this psu to make it any quieter?
It's by far the noisiest component in my system now and don't partic want to run out and buy a new psu.
ok, no reply so I went ahead and opened up the psu myself to check the connection available.
I was concerned that it would be inaccessible and/or require some soldering, but I needn't have worried.
Basically when the igreen is opened up there is a 2-pin fan connector right near the power switch side and conveniently a good few cm above the main psu circuit board.
I unplugged the fan to find to my delight that the socket on the psu is really minimal, no excess plastic etc.. to get in the way of just using a 3-pin connector, so I went ahead and tried to plug in an old 3-pin fan.
It seated almost completely, with just a little of the 'gloopy stuff' (do they use this for insulation?) blocking it right at the bottom, I scraped away a little (less than a mm probably), tried again and it fit like a glove
I've now placed an order for a Scythe Slip Stream 1200rpm fan, fingers crossed it'll all work out ok!
