okay, i'm trying to see if it's worth it to rip out this tormenting psu i have and replace it with a pc power & cooling ultra-quiet. there's no decibel reading for mine so i was wondering if anyone has written a decibel meter using the microphone (is this possible?). it would help a lot in both isolating sources of noise and if it's actually that loud. i think my head's about to explode when all drives are active .

And about the typical retail intel cpu fans? are these things loud? should i replace them with gorbs?

thx!
