    what fan is in the PSU? (SB61G2)

    sorry if this has been asked before but "PSU" and "fan" are under the required word search length.

    I'm planning on changing the fan in PSU of my SB61G2 Reflexion and can't seem to find a spec on the PSU that shows the noise rating on the fan. Can anyone tell me. I've been offered

    Size: 40 x 40 x 10 mm
    > Connector: 3-pin Molex
    > Airflow: 4,90 CFM
    > Type: double-ball-bearing
    > RPM: 5000 per minute
    > Noise: < 24 dBA
    > Power: 0,84 W
    > Voltage: 12 V
    > Life-span: 50.000 h

    would this be much better? Its a Titan.
    TIA

    any idea what the dbA rating is on it? should I be aiming for <20dbA?

    40mm's a small fan, wanna get something nice and quiet. maybe take it altogether and stick the shuttle in the fridge.

    just leave a slot to get the cds into the drive and get the beer out.

    i think i'll get the fan i mentioned above. seems 24dba is the best i can get.

    can someone tell me if there is 1 or 2 fans in the SB61G2? I'm still waiting for it to be delivered so i can't check but i need to order the 40mm fans soon and need to know how many to get.

    TIA

    q

    EDIT: saw this mentioned before but never seen the result: Has anyone removed the PSU fan from their shuttle altogether? Allowed it to run hot maybe? Sounds a little dangerous but there might be a solution.

    Alternatively has anyone modded the PSU so that the ICE fan can cool both?
