Aerocool DS fans

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Just wondering if anyone have any experience with these fans, only able to find a few reviews, but they seem to get decent reviews compared to their price.

Gonna be replacing my Noctua fans, they have been working flawlessly the 4 years i have had them, starting to produce some pretty annoying noises when the pc have been running for a little while.

Noctua fans have a 6 year warranty, use it.

Guess that might be an option, if i can find the receipts for them, i keep most, but after 4 years they might be gone :) Guess i can always ask Noctua.

I bought two of the DS fans last summer while I was overhauling the cooling system in my first PC. The first fan, which was put in the front of the case, was really loud due to the honeycomb design in the front grill on the Coolermaster n200. The loud noise wasn't the direct fault of the fan, though annoying. The second fan was a disaster. It was placed on the top of the case as exhaust, and about 1 week after installation the fan started making an awful clicking noise while the blades spun. I had the fan replaced with a new one and the results were no better, still an awful clicking noise was produced. I replaced the exhaust fan with a Noctua and never had any more problems. I would stick with Noctua...

What kind of noise is it and are you sure it's from the noctuas?

It is and kind hard to explain, one of them feels like its off balance, when it runs at full speed it vibrates, another one produces a whooshing sound that gets worse and worse the longer the pc runs, everything is clean and dust free, so thats not the problem, i think they are just worn out.

 

Had actually planned on moving everything over to a Fractal R5 case that i bought on sale, but had to sell the case due to some unforeseen bills. 

 

My current case is a CM Storm Trooper and im starting to hate it more and more, the design in the front makes it a pain in the ass to mount fans as front intakes. So im thinking about which case to buy now that i got the money for it again and then replace the noctua fans with something that also fits a bit better in terms of color scheme.

Noctua's warranty lasts 6 years. You could contact them for a replacement.

DS fans do not like being mounted horizontally. It's a prevalent occurrence in Amazon and Newegg reviews. Never really been explained. 

 

That said, when mounted vertically and with the low noise adapter attached, DS fans are some of my absolute favorites. 


Unimatrix 86 - i7-8086K - GTX 960. It's got a damn GTX 960. I'm tired of 5700 XTs not working out, so it has a fathermucking GTX 960. - AsRock Z390 Phantom Gaming-ITX/AC - 16 GB HyperX Fury DDR4-2133 - 1TB Western Digital Black SN750 M.2 NVMe - 500GB Toshiba XG5 NVMe - 3x 1TB Inland Professional - 960GB SanDisk Ultra II - Corsair SF600 - Cougar QBX - Deepcool Gammaxx C40

The weight of the fan blades/hub and the bearing design is what causes issues with horizontal mounting. Many high quality fans like those from Noctua or Be Quiet! don't exhibit the same annoying noise.

I don't usually use cheap fans. But back when I had a failure, I ran to my local Microcenter and picked up a Cougar. It worked REALLY well for the price. I was really surprised.

I have never actually had to use noctua support, but i have to agree there. Pretty freakin amazing support, wrote to them explaining the problem and they have now shipped new fans to me already, just asked that i break off a wing of each of the old fans and send an email back with a picture next to the email when i have received the new fans. xD
