Hi there,

I am planning to use the Akitio Thunder PCIe case with an Intel 750 SSD. However, loud fan noise is not my thing...

Hence, I am also planning to replace the stock fan with the Noctua fan being mentioned here in this thread. What is the actual model number of this fan? Is it 4 Pin? Is there an adapter I can use for connecting it to the internal 2 Pin connector.

Would be really nice if someone could help me out on this.

Sorry for my pigeon English...

Chris

I suggest this all in one soluction:
https://www.amazon.com/Noctua-60x25mm-Blades-Bearing-Premium/dp/B009NQMESS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1494839382&sr=8-1&keywords=noctua+60+mm

Yes it works it is the same used in noctuas kit

@deplomb

Is it possible to connect Noctua by scheme: power go from Akitio PCB (2 wires) and control go from GPU (another 2 wires)? You did not try that?

I fear for the power load on the GPU...

The original one is 20mm. I couldn't find any quieter fan with 20mm thickness.Nox Vidmate https://vlc.onl /" target="true">VLC
