Hello, I have an eBit e( miner (6.3Th/s) working away in my garage. The noise, isn't so loud it's an issue but I was wondering if I could change the fan. I found a 12cm fan which I used, but it was no where near man enough for the job. Has anyone succesfully managed to change a fan to something quieter?

If so, what fan did you use?

Thanks.

You need a certain amount of cooling so changing to a different fan is not the way.

You need to have a soundproof cabinet with good ventilation.

It's not possible to change the fan for quieter operation because any other fan will not have enough static pressure and/or airflow to cool the miner aquedately, and other possibly suitable fans will be just as loud. Philipma has a YouTube channel where he documents quieting Avalon miners and it'd work for your Ebits as well; it should be cheaper than a soundproofing cabinet. The channel is called Philipma 1957.

Thanks for the replies. I will have a look at that Youtube channel.
