80mm is a very small fan these days.
The 120mm fan is £7.99 anyway 120mm fan
Great fans but make sure you order the 4pin pwm version
This also does good job as vrm cooler
80mm fans are often used in HP PSUs and TFX PSUs - I sometimes replace these fans with a 3-pin Arctic F8 Silent case fan - here is an example of a TFX PSU which is now silent with the new fan:

Good point. Mini & micro builds are likely to be used in lounges too, so need a quiet fan.
I use 2 of these as exhaust fans on my Corsair Air 240 microATX build. Good quality fans

heat added, just wish I needed some more to benefit from this deal

Do you cut the 3rd pin/wire and just wire up live and ground? A lot of PSUs are just 2 pin right? I'd love to see your mods/how you've done it.

Thanks!!

Some PSU fans have a 2-pin connector on the board - in this case you can usually just pull off the plastic surrounding the two pins and you can then just insert the 3-pin fan plug making sure you have connected the 12V/ground (red/black) pins - if the 3-pin plug is not correctly attached then the fan will not spin correctly.

For the FSP TFX PSUs the fan cables are soldered to the board so you can either cut them and solder on to the wires from the new fan or you can just feed the wire out of the PSU case and attach to the motherboard instead and then control though the BIOS. I tend to use a standard speed fan profile for the PSU linked to the CPU temperature. One slight mod required is the TFX PSU may use a 80mm x 20mm fan whereas a standard case fan is 25mm deep so you will notice the grill is now on the outside of the case and I had to shave a couple of mm from part of the fan plastic so it would fit. This BeQuiet fan looks like it has less plastic surround than the Arctic fans so might not require any modding.

Thank you for this!
False economy. Get noctua fans. Yes they cost more but they are in a different league to these. It's worth paying the difference
