Silencing the IcyBox IB-RD3620SU3

The IcyBox is a good ┬áRAID case with USB3.0 support – however the stock fan is quite loud as it causes some vibrations.

In this tutorial we will replace it with a Noiseblocker PR-1 BlackSilentPro Fan which is not only silent but also has a better cooling performance.

In order to perform the depicted steps you will need the following tools

  • soldering iron
  • shrink-on tube
  • diagonal cutter

 

Note however that as the height of the Noiseblocker is 25mm instead of the 10mm of the stock fan it will stand out from the case.
