Hi there,

I could find no other thread dedicated to this issue. I apologize if there is one somewhere.

The fan inside this machine is a tad loud to my liking. I'm looking to replace it with a silent model.

Could anyone who has already performed this operation please come forward and tell us what size the ventilator is ?

I'm considering the Noctua brand as i have had great success replacing a noisy UPS No-break 6cm fan : became totally silent with the Noctua. Pricey but good.
Has anyone got other suggestions ?

Thank you very much for your help.

Thanks Ian!
So from the Noctua reference i'd say it is indeed an 8cm fan...i'll look it up.
it's great to know this machine is so upgradable...the new fan + ssd will make it totally silent, that is just awesome.

Share your preferred fan references here, Planet people, so we can know which are the silent ones.

Cheers
