    Default Noisy Fan in Sonicview 8000 HD

    The fan in my Sonicview 8000 HD is very noisy (LOL , wakes you up at night time).

    Does this fan serve any purpose? Can I just take it out, and do without it?

    Your call to do with or without but it helps some what with cooling the stb. Seen some on e bay that should work as replacement. Using an old case fan inside one at the moment. Mounts in place fairly good between the mainboard and power supply.

    Go to frozencpu dot com, they have some very very quiet fans, look at the ones rated at dB, the lower the dB the quieter the fan.

    Code:
    https://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l2/g36/c437/list/p1/Fans-12_Volt_Fans_by_dB.html
    And I wouldn't run the receiver without it, as they put one in there for a reason.

    I also added a second Fan mounted on top of case cover (cut a hole in cover) Blowing air down over PR supply board & such
    A lot better cooling all around

    I did the same as you with a computer fan, if you solder a USB end onto the fan it will run at 1/2 speed (5v instead of 12v) and be really quite. Try flipping your fan around and sucking the warm air out instead of trying to blow air in, it will cool the box much better

    The Little fan in the Back of Rec. is for sucking the warm air out, Air-Flow, and with the one on top
    All I did was pickup a 5v lead off of supply, etc. and solder to it.

    I found a good solution for our group during the day:I mounted 3 25mm 12 volt fans inside the top cover, blowing down.One stuated over the 8psk, one over the spansion/tsop area,and one over the power supply.The fans run from a 5 volt source.Unnoticeable noise with great cooling.
