If you only have one replacement fan or just care to replace the noisy one, just unplug them all and slowly plug each one back, turn on the computer, turn off, plug another one in, rinse and repeat until you find the culprit. It's not like disconnecting all the case-fans will literally mean the death of your processor and graphics card. Just don't unplug your processor fan. That can really damage your processor if it runs too hot for too long. Also unplugging them all can let you rule out the processor/video card/power supply fans being the source of the noise.

Given the age of your desktop, in the end with a 4-pack like this, you might as change what you can out of the case fans, ONLY if one of them is really the source of the noise. (Remember it could be your video card, processor, or the power supply fans) Most case fans are sleeve-bearing anyways so lubrication runs dry especially around 4+ years old. Dust & dirt get inside, they get louder, noisier, grindy-er, and 99% of the time its not worth attempting to try and re-lubricate them given how cheap and disposable they are. Plus you'll never back to run like it was when it was brand new.

I got these last time. They work well and are quiet! Extremely good reviews with 81% rating it 5 out of 5 stars.

And btw, these are NOT PWM fans to use with your CPU. Like the title, they are for the case.

Slightly off topic. One of my old computer (4+ years old, but i keep on updating components to make it faster) make lot of noise. It runs great. It's very hard to tell which fan it is, i believe it's a fan. How do you troubleshoot this? is it a good solution to change all the fans?

You should have some kind of fan controller program built into your bios where you can manually test each fan's speed, if not the program speedfan will allow you to do that.

FYI these are sleeve bearings. They last longer (and make less noise) if they are mounted horizontally

Or you could just manually plug and unplug the fans and see if any of them are much louder than the others. Generally PC fans are easily interchangeable

Take off the door, and listen. If it's only one fan, it should be pretty easy to figure out. While in there, check for dust, and might as well clean out the case with canned air. I usually do this outside. Fans can last a long time depending on usage, and type. I have 10 year old fans that work fine, and some that haven't worked so well after only a few years.

Just re-posting that these're are great to keep the routers cool, applied them on all of my Asus routers. With Merlin firmware, I can see the temps dropping on both frequencies.

Thanks. Will check today. I keep replacing RAM and Video cards on the machines and it all works fine overall. The noise looked like a fan issue and it seems should be easy to fix. thanks again.

Nice job.
Is there a cheap way to lower the fan speed from the default? I wouldn't mind adding a fan if I couldn't hear it. I know 120mm is pretty quiet to begin with. And I'll just leave the case on and put the fan on the side blowing sideways through the vents there. Most air would miss going inside, but better than nothing.

Needed a couple for a new server case to keep the hard drives cool. This popped up at the right time.
