Ok, I have 2 BFL 60 GH/s machines and they are louder than heck.  I am moving into a new place next weekend and the units will have to be in a room with me and I do not think I will be able to handle the noise.  For this reason I have heard that you can replace the fans with quieter ones, but I am unsure about which fans to use.

Could someone who has replaced their fans in their 60 GH/s units please recommend a fan to use?  Will any 120 MM fan work?

Thanks for your help and experience.

Try first only with the fan plates removed, you might find it sufficient.

Hi there.

If you just remove the case (leaving the stock fans) - it will literally cut the noise down by 50% and gets rid of that "whining" noise you also hear. I did that to mine and I can no longer hear it through the walls, ha.

To answer your question- yes any standard fan will work (it's just 2 fans with extension rods holding them).

Case removal + silent new fans = silent and great performer

Will the temperature be fine for the boards by removing the case fans?  What temps do yours run at without the case?

Hey, buy 2 x 120mm SILENT fans, check out their specs.
Fans MUST be with 3 pins connector !
I replaced mines too because of the noise Tongue

I use gentle typhoon 1850rpm fans on my single. These are the fans that most water-cooling setups use. A bit pricy but very quiet and efficient.

I don't use the case fans or the case. The gentle typhoon fans sits on the heatsink in place of the 92mm fans. So only 2 fans are running and the single stays at 60c.
