Default Antec HCP Platinum 1300W Fan Replacement

Hello. I've got this psu for next to nothing, and it works. However, the fan makes annoying whirring noise at any speed. I've tried adding some oil into the bearings, but that made little to no difference. And I don't have an original receipt, so, no warranty either.

I'm wondering if I could replace the fan with one that has quieter bearings, but there's not a lot of 135mm fans to choose from.

The stock fan is AFB1312M. Maybe even Delta themselves make similar fan with different bearings?

Looks like this fan has dual ball bearings

they can get noisy.

I'd just replace it with the same model.

Yeah. Best bet is to replace it with the original Delta. They're not typically noisy. And noise doesn't always come from the bearings and can't always be solved with lube.

Aaaaaaand that noise was similar that I've heard from a lot of dual ball bearing fans, even brand new ones. So it would be best for me to replace with something quieter if possible.

That PSU is likely going to be mounted vertically, so even sleeve bearing should work fine in such case?

Ok. I guess I don't know what noise you're talking about. I've heard noises from DBB's, but not "whirring".

I'd get an FDB or rifle bearing myself, but 135mm is an oddball size. It's a 140mm fan frame with a smaller bolt pattern. Maybe you can drill out your fan mounting holes and install a 140mm?

You probably want to stay close to 30 CFM (more would be noisier, a thing you seem to be avoiding)

Or maybe I could just drill holes in a 140MM fan In that case, what 140 would be somewhat similar to the original one yet would have fdb/rifle bearings? Though i could get a Swiftech Helix 140mm that's pretty silent when not spinning fast, yet it could go up to ~2000rpm if needed.

I'd just get the original 2 pin fan which you know will be happy when voltage controlled; the fan you have now may be just fine and not need replacement.

I'm not sure one can expect a 1300W power supply to run silent.

Well I'm not expecting it to run silently when actually delivering 1300W, just expecting it to be silent when it's not loaded

I've uploaded the sound sample when jumpstarted to decide if it's normal or not.. should've done that before :/ https://youtu.be/EPhP0hKeV0Y and that noise goes away if I manually stop the fan.

You like experimenting; mount the fan on the OUTSIDE of the case, so the blades are not close to components; you may find the noise goes down.
