Fan making a noise

  Mr. Chips 07:40 12 Nov 2010

I have a 90mm cooling fan which is making a noise ... still works, but is annoying.

I bought a replacement form Maplin, but it too, is so noisy. They reluctantly accepted it as a return.

Has anyone got experience of where I can buy a fan that is likely to run quietly?

Many thanks Mat.... I will give them a whirl ... (pun intended).

It might be worthwhile in noting that there are special noise/vibration canceling grommets that can help with noise reduction for fans, especially if they are comming directly in contact with a pc case.

Good point KDW will look into that. Thanks
