I recently bought the ninja mini to replace the original amd fan (which wasn't really loud, but just a bit small). Anyhow putting the heatsink it in wasn't that difficult, but the fan itself is pretty obnoxious. It's by far the loudest fan that I had. So I disconnected it for the time being, hoping that the heatsink alone is enough. Without that fan its competely silent.
Did I just get a bad fan, or does this cooler come with different fan variations? Also can somebody recommend a fan that is indeed silent, if the heatsink alone doesn't work?
