Default fan solderd to little board behind psu

Got a new power supply going to replace fan in the back of it with a delta fan but I

noticed something about the fan inside the power supply box it’s soldered to the little

board inside so can I just wiggle it out and remove it? Will that be a problem maybe a fire

hazard if I do? and when I do that id like to bring the power cord around the front and

plug it into a fan controller is that ok? I’m just not used to deal’n with power supply issues I’ve never delt with them much.

Is the other fan broken? If not, leave it. If so, cut the power wires and splice them. Don't break it at the soldered joint. Splice the wires and wrap them in some heat shrinking joint connector or use a lot of electrical tape.

Just remember, those PSU's aren't meant to be modified by the layman.

PSU's are some of the least complicated thing's on a computer, easy to work with and solder new fans in.

Thanks you guys you all have been a great help the fan’s aren’t dead but they run lower

then 1500rpm and I don’t like that besides that I’m a delta fan Litterly everything that

revolves around cool’n when it comes to fans I say it has to be a triple blade delta high

proforcemnce fan or nothing I guess for me its all about the brand like my soda I am a

Pepsi man…anybody else like that around here however this doesn’t mean I don’t give

other brands a chance anybody else know of some really bad *** fans out there with high CFM?
