The power supply fan of an old computer is making too much noise. Can I replace the old fan with a silent fan?
Bought 2 fans: a Zalman ZM-F1 and a CoolMaster 8025.
But first I need to measure before silencing my system; I might overheat things by installing too few fans. Stumbled upon lm_sensors. Gave command sensors-detect. Now sensors displays this:

The fan I need to replace has this label on it:
KME DC BRUSHLESS MODEL: PL80S12M DC 12V 0.12A POWER LOGIC
It has 2 wires connected, so I assume no 'power logic' though?
Found a reference a the KME website.
