The IcyBox is a good RAID 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.
