Hi, I have fitted my Sirtec 340W with a Papst 80 mm at 12V, and while I was initially very pleased with the results, the noise has been increasing of late (or maybe I'm just getting more picky).
I cut out the stamped grill, but now I'm thinking along the lines of undervolting the Papst using a zalman fanmate. I am also considering using a 5-7V Papst as an intake fan near the front, blowing air towards the PSU intake vents.
Then again, I might just go for a Nexus 3000 instead. Does anyone have an idea which is the better move? Is a Nexus really noticably more quiet than a PSU with an undervolted (8-10V, I probably wouldn't dare to go below that
Thanks for any help... (Btw, my setup basically consists of an XP1500firstname.lastname@example.orgV with an undervolted Arctic Cooling Super Silent, a CudaV and a Matrox G400.)
