I have been reading a lot of post and I needed some help. This is what i have
mini tower with 2 92mm Scythe "KAMA PWM" Fan 31dba cfm 55 . http://www.scythe-usa.com/product/acc/0 ... etail.html
One is intake at the front bottom of that case and the other is blowing out at the back of the case.
My problem is that the fans are too loud. Looking and doing research Im guessing 31dba is loud. When in the next room my computer sounds like the refrigerator when the freezer turns on when on idle. I play BF3 and SWTOR and i know that the fans might get louder due to the game.
Last night I had enough and opened my case. I always went in to the BIOS and saw that my system fan was at about 2400rpm Those 2 fans were the culprits. My questions is...Is it a good idea to replace the intake fan with a 120mm less noisy fan? I did unplug one of the fans to see how much noise I loss and the computer sounded way better. Or should replace the intake with a 120mm and add an additional 120mm on the side. My CPU temp was at about 30C.
Im looking at getting something local so I can do it over the weekend. There are so many choices so far i have been looking at Nactua, Antec True Quiet, Scythe slip stream.
Thanks in advance
