I have a case fan that is not on the recommended list: an Enermax 80mm UC-8FAB. I want to see if I can quieten the vibrational noise it creates.
I thought about noise reduction washers found here
at directron, but the advise in the forum seems to point toward grommets or fan isolaters (are these these the same thing?)
I see that Silicon Acoustics carry the fan isolators and from the picture they appear to just pop in and take the place of screws. Is this a correct assumption?
After trying fan isolators or grommets I will attempt to undervolt, but I want to see how well I can deal with the problem without undervolting first. In the end, I'll probably get a recommended fan to acheive the results I want, but why not go ahead and work with what I got first?
