Thank you for your time..Yup.
I bought an external fan, then had to cut the wires on the existing fan (as the connector is non standard). Then connect the wires to the new fan.
I then drilled a hole in the side of the case and bolted the fan on.
Not 100% silent, but the fan is so quiet that it may as well be.
I wouldnt recomend the mod - was a right pain! If you want more detailed info, let me know!
did you remove the old fan? or did you only cut the wires and bolted the new fan to the outside plate and placed it above the old one?
What fan did you use? Do you have a link to a webshop?
Is it possible to get a more detailed picture of the placement and 'cut out' ?
My windbox is at MSI at the moment for RMA because of the noise, but my hopes are not high regarding MSI fixing the problem.
I'm considering making the same modification you did once i get my windbox back from MSI.
