    X-Blade Case - New Fan...

    Hi all,

    One of my computers is currently using the X-Blade Case (http://beatme101.com/images/xblade.jpg) but the fan is super noisy! Looking to replace the side fan, can anyone recommend a decent fan for it? I need to hit the fan like 6 times just to shut it up.

    Thanks for any help.

    Well you may not need to get a new fan or case. Is the fan installed all the way? If you hit it to get it to stop it may not be screwed in or clamped in or how ever its installed all the way.

    I've taken the fan apart, made sure it's installed correctly, cleaned it etc... I just can't shut it up, keeps doing it whenever I turn the computer on. Even after I get it to shut up, it's still fairly loud.

    The picture is kind of distorted on my phone. Is that a 120mm fan?

    Standard 80mm. They're pretty cheap and widely available at most computer stores (TigerDirect and similar places carry them as well). Coloured ones (blue being the most popular) should be just as easy to find; Tiger carries them as well.

    Links: blue ($7-$18 CAN) or non-coloured ($6-$27 CAN)

    As others said, it's an 8cm fan (I used to have this case a long time ago).

    If you want something quiet then look for Akasa Amber Fans / Noctua Fans. Although to be honest it's not a quiet case to begin with.
