    Its not possible is it?
    Maybe it&#39;s the fan not the heatsink.
    Heatsinks are passive, fans are active.

    to get rid of teh noise, you could just buy another 60mm fan, or better yet an 80mm fan and a 80mm to 60mm fan adaptor.

    Maybe it was sound interference from another fan.

    That sometimes happens when they are slightly out of sync.

    When you say that your HS "hums" did you mean hum like the Andrews Sisters or hum like Monica Lewinski?

    Just curious.

    Humming heatsinks. Now that&#39;s an interesting subject.

    I&#39;d like to hear that.

    I thought they all buzzed.
