THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! This was the perfect solution. The new Noctua fan even came with solderless connectors. The whole job only took 20 minutes. It is now completely silent!

Just replaced mine monitoring the temperature now. As @tberntson mentioned, the fan comes with some Skotchlok connectors and no soldering even required. I can’t believe how quiet the new fan is. Complete night and day difference. Kevin, thanks so much for sharing this.
