Wow, what a difference. My computer is hardly audible where before it was like a small vacuum sitting next to me.
I've replaced my single 80mm case fan with three Scythe Kama Flow 2 80mm Fans
and the HSF combo on my video card with an Accelero S2
. I'm still waiting for the Scythe SCMG-2000
I kinda scoffed at the idea of my harddrives being considered loud when I heard you guys say that. The rest of the machine was so loud that I couldn't imagine caring about the hard drives. Now I think I may be mounting them on elastic chords like suggested.
I'm not sure if I'm going to replace my PSU fan. Soddering has never been my strong suit. I'm gonna do some Mic tests and see if the tower is still providing too much noise floor.
I'll keep you guys posted.
