While i was testing my new nexuz 120mm fan, i was hearing a clicking. i was thinking it came from my new fan. but i turned off all my fans and i was listening and i could still hear a clicking?
I then realize it waS coming from the PSU fan. It is a small clicking but i can notice it from 1 foot away.
Does ur guyz coolmax PSU click?
Hey there, sorry for the delay. To answer your question: Yes, my Coolmax's fan clicks. How noticeable (or objectionable) is another matter. It seems to me it used to be more noticeable in my old computer case, but once I moved it into my new Antec SLK1600 case, I stopped noticing the clicking. I have a feeling it might become more noticeable as the fan revvs up. (My SLK1600 has much better ventilation than the old case, so it is possible my PSU is breathing more easily, and doesn't need to spin as fast as it did in the old case.) Main thing is, it doesn't bother me now.
For what its worth: a lot of fans out there click. See this thread
for a discussion of the reason for it.
I also initially looked into replacing the fan in the Coolmax--the stock fan in the Coolmax appears to be a Top and Tech (T&T) fan, spinning at 2000 RPM, delivering 79.4 CFM at 35dB. (I found this out WITHOUT opening up the unit, because I do not want to void my warranty.)
If you really are set on replacing the fan, I'd recommend that you try to make sure you get a fan that matches the original specs as closely as possible.
Another thing you might want to try first though is decoupling your PSU with one of these
