    How can I reduce the sound of my fans??

    I have just done a case modification.. I cut 2 holes in the side of my case for 2 extra fans because my comp was getting too hot. I think my comp is now at a good temp level. BUT IT IS NOW LOUD!!! Can any give me some suggestions on how to reduce the sound of my fans?? Grills etc... Thanks

    You could have gotten the 80mm fans w/a little reostat (dimmer) inline on the wires. Has 3 different speeds. Other than that you can run them on 7 volts. Just take the power supply molded plug apart and connect your fan wires to the yellow ground (12v ground) and the red (5v) hot, or positive, Check it with a meter first, should be 7v DC.

    I have 3 fans, all about 2600 cfm, (2)80mm, 1 92mm. One fan is hung inside the case blowing onto rdram, cpu & 850i chipset. The suspended fan is quietest, does not transfer vibration to case. I have not seen anyone suspend a fan and I don't know why, it is very simple, 2 plastic coated paper clips hold the fan from slots in the power supply. You can put the computer on the floor away from you or add a sound panel. I have used a acoustical tile.

    P4, 2333mhz, 146 FSB, ABIT TH7-II, P4 1.6a
