Why are my BB3 fans SUPER LOUD? How to Replace?
« on: August 05, 2022, 07:07:15 AM »
I got this BB3 Spy vs Spy from one of those places online that says they spend 12-14 days refurbishing your machine with 100's of new parts, but in reality they may wipe the machine down, if that.....total B.S.

The fans are so loud on this game, people can't really have a conversation in the same room if the machine is on. I can here the fans on the 3rd floor, and the machine is in the basement. The fans are as loud or louder than the game, on volume level 4.

It seems the upper fan is louder, although the lower fan is making alot of racket too. The place sent me a new upper fan. I have a few questions:

Are BB3 fans known to be super loud? My BB1.5 runs fans and it's almost completely silent. 

How do I get to the upper fan to replace it?

Is the lower fan in my Power Supply? So I would need to try a whole new power supply?

Are there Upgraded fans or a better power supply I can get that are quiet?

Where would I find these items?

Thanks in advanced!  :EmoticonHelp4:

The blades use blowers to move more air through the cabinet.  Blowers are notoriously loud (ever been on a server room?).  If you disconnect the blowers, you will get a tilt as the speed of the blowers is monitored by the system.  Unfortunately, you cannot really replace these with something else without messing up with the thermals on the machine and potentially causing heat related faults.  I suppose you could look for quieter blowers of the same voltage and size (if they exist), but blowers are really meant to move larger volume of air and they create more noise as a consequence and the system will run them all at full speed to keep the cabinet cool anyway, so I don't know if it would make much of a difference.

OK thank you.That's great information. I will just pass on replacing my fan and leave it in there. There's probably nothing wrong with. Thanks again for the quick reply. This is a great forum.

I had to replace my mid cabinet fan- it was overloaded with gunk, but the damage to the bearings was already done from it being unbalanced. Helped a lot. Coolcox part # BF7530H24D, microfit molex female terminals and connector is digikey # WM1847-ND (molex 0436450400).

My PS fan is also loud; still working on a replacement number for that one as the stock # in mine seems harder to find with the connector on it.
