Norco 4224 fan replacement

6 posts in this topic Last Reply

Hi I was looking for some input on replacing my Norco 4224 case stock noisy 80 mm fans with some 120 mm fans and also replacing the back fans with something quieter. I have a new fan wall coming from Norco but not to sure on what will work to replace the stock fans and quiet the system down. I have 10 drives running as of now.

Thanks in advance for any input or advice.

Best fans ever made in my opinion or Noctua. They also make the best processor heatsinks. Build quality and warranty are great.

 

I changed all my 4224 fans with Noctua models. No need to get the industrial models, even though they still are less loud then the stock ones. How many drives do you have in there and what hardware are you using?

Thank you for the reply, what part number and model are your 120mm fans? I have 12 drives with everything counted in and getting ready to install a super micro x11sae-o board with intel I7 7700k cpu. Also have the same case Norco 4224

I am using NF-S12A PWM for my three 120mm fans. I could still make the next jump up to the next one since the server is more isolated now and can use more faster louder fans, but I have good air flow where it is now and have had no issues.

Hi thanks for the past info the fans worked great. Could you tell what model cpu cooler you are using in the pic I have a Noctua cooler but doesn’t seem to keep up with plex or heavy use.

thanks in advance

I know this post is pretty old but I was curious what peoples opinions were on using just 4 80mm Noctua fans instead of a new backplane and 3 120mm.  How much diference do you think would be noticed in a room that usually has a small tower fan running and ceiling fan.
