Re: noisy fan on Corsair TX650 V2

Ive read several people having trouble with the V2 TX650 psu fan.

It also is a bit cheaper where I live compared to the original.

The motherboard is Asrock MB S1155 ASROCK H61M/US3S It has 775 mounting holes so fits Ninja. Ive hear that vrm need stock for sandy bridge motherboards?!?! http://...

Re: Replacing PSU fan

The 120mm fan has red and black wire soldered to a green PCB.

I guess I could cut it off and wire in another fan or connect another fan to motherboard.

Re: Replacing PSU fan

Thank you for reply.

I was hoping to connect the zalman adapter directly to PSU, maybe wishful thinking.

THe PSU is a old ~2006 mode that came with my Nexuz Breeze case.
The name of the PSU is Nexus silent breeze 500w

Replacing PSU fan

So I have a 500w PSU with built in 120mm fan.

Can I put a Zalman 5v or 7v adapter to new fan and then plug it directly on to the PSU?

I have bunch of no-name, scythe fans that are not ball bearing, hopefuly this is not a big problem?

Intel 2100 and G620 stock cooler enough?

I currently have a AM3 system with Mugen 2 500rpm 120mm slipstream, intake 120mm 500rpm, and exhaust 700rpm.

I' considering getting SB system with G620, I need 2 PC and wonder if I should get another Mugen 2 rev B or if the stock cooler is quiet?

what is worrying is the fact that these have MUCH worse specifications when it comes to db and airflow compared to the 120mm scythe slipstream.

one way to know the noise level is to look at the fan, if it's the same fan as on 5770 vapor-x then it obviously is quiet at idle. If the vapor-x 58xx has proper VRM cooling it might even be possible to have the fans at 1-10% speed in IDLE? The way I see it in gaming It's acceptable to have more RPM...
