    How to reduce noise from PSU?

    i'm using the FSP 300W... and it seems to be giving the most noise from my comp....

    CPU fan: TTsilentcat
    Exhaust fan: 80mm case fan that comes with my 3R alu casing
    Intake fan: 80mm $3 fan from Bell, but well encased so very little noise..

    but the PSU fan... argh..

    Jam a screwdriver into the fan at the back of the PSU.

    umm although stopping the fan from spinning will remove the noise created by the fan...you'll damage your PSU in the long run as the heatsinks inside cannot dissapate the heat out efficiently without forced air...

    dun think it reduce a lot of noise.... prolly jus the noise due to the vibration of the psu with casing.... i think it works better for normal case fans

    Change out the fan, set the fan to lower speed, or just use a fan controller on it.

    changing fan or the speed is the cheapest and best way. u stop the fan completely, the psu gonna go kaboom when u start using it for long periods. and the noisekiller kit only helps to dampen vibration like u said. its just a piece of silicon

    if you're using the $29 FSP 300w, you can forget about changing out the fan. I tried it.

    There is noise from electronic components inside the psu as well.
