Low profile 80mm fans?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a Synology DS1511+ NAS and the internal CPU fan is rattling, so I want to change it for another one. I just swapped the two rear fans for Noctua R8 fans, but they are too thick to fit between the heatsink and the mount where the original fan sits. So I need something that is approximately half the thickness of an R8 fan, which is 25mm. So something like a 15mm or 10mm thick fan would do.

 

Any recommendations on what to get? Usually I'd just get a Noctua, but they don't make other fans than the R8 for their 80mm series.

There's not really any slim 80mm's from the usual brand names we see.
