What fan are using on your X5000?

Since I got my X5000 out of storage somewhere in November or December 2020, I replaced the quite noisy fan with a more silent one. As the board is mounted in a Lian Li T60, noise can be quite distracting.

First I tried a NoiseBlocker BlackSilentPRO 60x60x25, but with very little success, as it only made a handfull of revolutions before halting completely. Its motor kept emitting a rumbling noise, but further failed to do its intended job.
Mounting the fan was quite an undertaking.

My second, and current, choice was a Noctua NF60x25, which indeed is very, vey silent! Mounting was a relative breeze. Its only drawback is its occasional malfunctioning in mostly the startup phase. During that phase it sometimes comes to a complete halt thereby causing the processor to shut off due to overheating.

What fan have you applied and what are your experiences?

I use the ones that came with the board. Thats a Silent 6 by Gelid.

I bought two spare units just in case one might fail in the near future.

AmigaOne X5000 -> 2GHz / 16GB RAM / Radeon R7 250 / M-Audio 5.1 -> AmigaOS 4.1 FE / Ubuntu Linux
Amiga 1200 -> Recapped / 68ec020 ACA 1221ec / CF HDD / RetroNET connected to the world

I use "Noctua" one too. Is the silent of silent ones indeed. Check my vid about x5000 cpu fan replacement for fun:

And yeah, i connect it to PSU power, just to have always 3000 RPM, because it also halt few times for me on startup and i do not want to risk anymore :)

Very topical! My CPU fan just started to make a loud "replace me" sound. Just ordered Noctua NF A6x25 from amazon to try.

I use Noctua NF-R8 Redux 80mm fan.
It's connected to the cpu-fan connector and has never failed on me.
