I realized I had posted this in the ONE instead of the EON subforum so I’m reporting here.
Essentially, I’m not real happy with the noise from the stock fan. I planned on keeping the EON on my desk and it’s pretty loud with the fan running. I have three of the Argon ONE cases and that little 30mm fan is much quieter than the 60mm fan in my EON.
I’ve been experimenting with the fan settings and my experience has been that there is not much difference in the amount of noise whether the fan is set to 5, 10, 25, 50, or 75. At 100, it gets a little louder but not much.
The current fan dimensions are 60x10 and has a PH2.0 connector. I wanted to replace it with a Noctua fan but the only 60mm options they have are all 25mm deep. With two 3.5" drives, there is no fitting that in the EON. In fact, I’m not even sure if a 60x15 fan would fit.
I did find some 60x10 fans but almost all of them were brands I’ve never heard of, came with either PH2.54 or three-pin motherboard connectors, and were sleeve bearings. Of course the current connector could be cut and replaced with a PH2.0 but I’m not very confident that these unknown brands would be any quieter.
I’m curious if anyone else has had any success locating a suitable replacement fan. I also interested if anyone has explored alternatives (two 40mm fans, for example).
