    Supermicro M12SWA-TF PCH fan noise

    Rumor has it the Supermicro M12SWA-TF PCH fan is really noisy. Has anyone found any good solutions for this? Can the fan be swapped with a Noctua? Or maybe use the existing fan with an LNA resistor to slow it down a bit and rely on good case cooling? Thanks!
