Fan Noise

Danny W.

Experienced
Just installed Noctua NF-A8 ULN using lowest speed connector and rubber stands. Now it's so much better/quiter than with stock fan, but I can still hear the fan, is it normal or something wrong with me?
I did that too & had the same result. I found that lining the mounting flange with tape before re-installing the top helped, but I still can hear it. My III is about two feet from my ears and not in a rack.
