    ASUS PG27UQ Fan noise. Any solution?

    I bought the PG27UQ a few months ago. And I still couldn't get used to the fan noise at all. I have a perfectly silent water cooled PC with 6 fans, that can't be heard at all. The monitor is freaking loud compared to the PC.
    Are there any solutions in this regard? Has anyone tried to exchange the fan with another more silent one?
    Any help that would reduce the fan noise of the PG27UQ is very welcome as I don't want to deal with that noise any longer.

    Its a new sound to get use to..like a pair of new shoes that dosent fit 100 % because you need to walk in them and make em ur dayli usual shoes
    Ect in my room i often hear the heater or the watch goes tic tac, but when you sit and play games with music and sound, then you dont hear the fan.
    Its best just to get use to it.

    Mine is also doing the same thing, i disconnected all the cables and still as long as the power cable is connected the fan is running. I'm wondering if this is a normal behavior with the monitor. I have an open RMA regarding the fan because of it not turning off and I've noticed it getting louder over time. Are you also experiencing this? I'm hesitant to ship out the monitor to them for support to send it back saying nothing is wrong.

    It is getting louder because it is alway s on collecting dust. I have no clue why it is and for a 2500€ monitor it is pretty strange. Or we just don't get it and can't find the off switchv People laugh when they see me disconnecting cable... WTF and that is a 2500€ monitor haha

    If your fan is annoying you then its most likely busted. Mine used to be dead silent and started making 80decibels of noise. It was crazy. I had to send it for repair. They fixed the fan problem but they broke other stuff and the monitor developed other faults. I sent it vack again. Fighting for a refund atm. I suggest you do the same. They fixed this problem in PG35VQ and PG27UQX.
