have a silent internal fan. If your unit is distinctly audible, then
there is an internal hardware fault and the unit needs to be replaced."
I somhow feel if I go through getting it replaced it will be much the
same. Is the fan temperature controlled? Mine seems to run at the
same speed all the time.
- One of the quietests fans are the Papst :
select english language, then click on "Computers and office
Technology", and then "IT Hardware".
You should find a replacement fan.
Note the reference, and find an online shop to order it.
When I have time I'll also do the mod' :-)
- Lubricating the fan with a drop of oil fixed the problem for me. You'll need to open the case, and perhaps remove a sticker on the fan to do this, if I recall correctly.
Any suggestion for a noisy fan? My wisper quiet fan roars like a
lion. I have e-mail tech support and have recieved no response.
