Need some advice from you guys in the know,
I have this PSU http://www.dvhardware.net/review54_silverstone350w.html
It's installed in my low-powered (2.3Ghz core2duo) HTPC in the living room and I find the PSU fan fairly loud at idle.
I have a brand new and boxed Akasa Apache 120mm Fan in my cupboard of PC spares. http://www.akasa.com.tw/update.php?tpl= ... l=AK-FN057
The existing PSU fan is rated at 0.34A with max airflow of 80.5 CFM and the Apache Fan is rated at 0.33A with a max airflow of 57.53 CFM
Is the Apache fan suitable for this kind of swap, given I am trying to lower the noise level of the PSU whilst still maintaining the right level of cooling for the PSU? (The air that exits the PSU with the current fan never feels warm and the CPU usage of the HTPC never really goes above 20%)
Thanks in advance for any advice.
