Re: My eternal dim 8400 fan debacle noise oh noise

Also have a 8400 and found out the FAN from delta electronics (model AFC0912DE, dell p/n P2780) is very noisy. Lots of people have similar complaints on this forum and I think Dell did a very bad job here. My problem is de FAN is always running on same high RPM, irrelevant what the CPU load is. So far only tried bios upgrade to A03 but the only thing I noticed is the difference in FAN diagnostics. Called Dell and they promised me UPS would deliver new FAN today, but nobody showed up :-(

But I found some interesting URL, check out what this guy did with a real Zalman:
