Replacement PSU fan

Right I have a Tagan 1100w Turbojet PSU and the fan is ridiculously loud tbh.

What I need is 2 replacement 80mm fans that push a decent amount of air but don't sound like they are about to take off.

Black is fine for colour.

Any recommendations?

Have a look at the enermax fans, I did a review on one earlier on this year and was very impressed (http://forum.aqua-pcs.co.uk/showthread.php?t=171)

It may not push enough air, but they were nice and quiet

I could be wrong, but I thought that PSU had a 15mm depth one and a 25mm depth one in there?

I'd look at something like the Yate Loon D80SH-12, Its about 30cfm, but much higher than that and you'll be getting the noise again.

Obviously you also want to make sure the PSU doesn't overheat with lower output fans. The turbojet is one hell hot PSU when under load.

Yep your right Jimbo

I think those Yate's look good. I'm thinking that two of those should be OK.

I'm never going to push the unit to 1100w

Q6600 @ 3.6

Abit IP35 Pro

8800GTX

4GB PC6400 @ 1000MHz, 2.1v

Possibly an Asus PhysX card

2 x SATA 7600RPM HDD's

1 x SATA DVD-RW

2 x DDC's 12v

4 x Noctua NF-P12's, 2/3 x Noctua NF-S12's - all on a fan controller

Possibly an LCD temp display

I only use 1 or seldom 2 USB devices at a time.

It shouldn't go above 4-500w imo

Yeah thats not gonna give it too much to sweat over. If you're thinking of changing the 15mm one out for a 25mm one you might want to make sure it'll fit. I think a 15mm may have been used because the fan is wedged between the PCB and the casing of the PSU.

The 25mm one is probably the noisier of the two anyway, so maybe just changing that one for a Yate will suffice.

Umm well that would mean spending money on something when I have a perfectly decent top-notch PSU here. Orrr I could buy a fan or two...

Bit of difference there aint it?
