Replacing PSU Fan

i'm very paranoid with the rattling noise coming out of my build, and i find out that the PSU fan was making the rattling noise. i wanted to replace it with the good one.

  1. what is the size of the fan
  2. does connection is using a pin connector or a direct soldering
  3. will the psu run if theres no fan plugged in to the psu board because i wanted to plug the fan to the motherboard fan header in order to get full speed control

my PSU im having right now is an Antec 550W V2

The better option is to just change the PSU 

This thing is a fire hazard

It's not recommended, one wrong move and u will end up electrocuted.

You might go unconscious or even die.....

I suggest you RMA it or send it to someone with the proper tools and protections to change the fan...

Everyone was a noob at the beginning, don't be discouraged by toxic trolls even if u lose 15 times in a row. Keep training and pushing yourself further and further, so u can show those sorry lots how it's done !

I wouldn't open up a PSU even if it was a nice, expensive one I didn't really feel like throwing out, but for a cheapo junk unit I really don't see the point in doing this.

If you don't know what you're doing, opening up a PSU and tinkering with the insides can be quite a dangerous thing to do, so I'd strongly advise ditching it and purchasing a new, maybe at least decent power supply.
