Buzzing Fan


Turned on my AXE II yesterday and a loud buzzing sound started right away and would not stop. I took the cover off and sure enough it was the fan. I imagine it is wearing out. Any ideas on replacement fans? I have send an email to Fractal tech support but no response yet.


Depends on your generation of II, but it’s a pretty standard 80 or 60mm pc fan, replacements cost about $5-15 depending on quality.

I’m partial to the Noctua line, slightly more expensive but quieter and will last about 150,000 hours which is like 17 years

Simple swap takes about 30 seconds
