I have an Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-52-78VL I got semi-new last year. Really good condition for $550. There's just one small issue thats bothering me, the fan noise on the gpu part. Im aware that both fans can get loud, but the gpu side has this rattling/vibrating sound when the fan speeds are at low/med and I always higher the speed or use turbo mode. I cant bring it at my uni's library sometimes where I spent most of my time doing task because of that vibrating noise. I dont mind if the fans are loud where it loud but clear, pure-fan wind (if you get the term) sound instead of the loud with rattling sound. There are times where its okay but sometimes not okay. Tried putting a little bit of fan grease, I clean the fans every two weeks, and nothing changes with the sound. No issues with the cpu fan noise at all.

With that being said, is it possible to replace the fans maybe with a plastic one? I'm pretty sure there will be changes with temps. Is there any of that options at all? Or I should go for these ones I found on amazon

Looking at the reviews, those two links are metal fans. My concern is, will they, make the same noise after few months of use? Or its just with acer's blade fan design thing. Let me know what you think.
