For those that own the Behringer NU1000 and want to perform a fan swap, follow the DIY video:

HOWEVER, instead of ordering the fan he has, you can use any PC case (or 12v) fan. In my case I used the Noctua NF-R8 80mm fan.

Although a little pricey, the Noctua fan is DEAD SILENT!!! Just thought I'd pass the info along.

That fan works will with the Peavey IPR's, too.

I wouldn't call it "dead silent" by any means, but it reduces noise by enough that the amp goes from "unusable in the same room" to "you'll only hear it with the system on mute."

i use the 28db panaflos in all my behringers. IMO that noctua isnt moving nearly enough air...

I cant even tell the fan is running unless i put my ear up to the amp (literally, if i had someone go in to my room and disconnect the fan i wouldnt be able to tell unless i put my ear up to it)

I use the Panaflo FBA08A12M in my inuke

Pretty sure this is the same thing on digikey

(I do have a computer with 3 noctua 120mm fans undervolted in my room so maybe thats the reason i cant hear any of my pro amps... )

edit: the last digikey link i had was for the 24v version.. doh

I'm using the Noiseblocker NB-Multiframe M8-S3 in my iNuke NU3000 with excellent results. It's the loudest of the noiseblocker fans but very quit rated @ 19db and moves a decent amount of air. The amp is about 12 feet from my listening position and is inaudible.

you are absolutely right. I swapped the stock fan with this Noctua (80mm) in a NU1000, and it is dead silent, even without the LNA or ULNA (the fan doesn't start with this last one).
Now the Behringer has very good sound, without the fan noise flaw!
Fantastic, people, for your recommendation.
