Ok if the five inches is a problem I could make it smaller that is no problem I figured the bigger the better I could make it 1 inch if that is better. Thanks 4 your help and how do I measure the temps.

BTW how do I know if there are serious issue with heat is there software for this. I am pretty sure my Dell XPS fans rev up if there is a heat increase so I guess I could go by that but not sure.

If i was to duct from the fan to the exit there seems to be no need to install a fan since the air would never fill the storage but if i duct, the box seems pointless since all the noise will flow through the duct not the box, right?

Great Idea thanks a bunch :D I was also considering another idea I wanted to run by you guys. I was considering building a half box with an open box on the bottom so the air could flow out near the carpet. I figure much more airflow but now I dont think I will go with this cause I really like that c...

The XPS is not that quiet only my vid card seems quiet as I said the PSU fans are very noisey but only during game play it is actually nice and quiet during normal use. But the Rad 9800 is good

Important

Thanks for the input I'm glad I didnt just rush out and buy that desk. I just wanted to let everyone know that I think a loose graphic card was causing the excessive noise in my new XPS. I opened the case and tried to tighten things and noticed the graphics card was loose. I figure since it was loos...

WOW

Thanks for the link that looks like a good idea but with my shedule I would rather just buy one I could just put my cpu into. Just one with cpu storage but I wanted to make sure it was a thick one that would keep the noise down. But thanks for the link I found that story interseting.

Computer Desks that reduce noise

I am looking to buy a computer desks that has a case to hold the computer. At work we have them and you can barely hear the computer when the door is closed.

Of course other computers are quiter than the XPS I was just asking a general question to see if anyone could confirm...

Have you ever heard the XPS in action Rory

Rory have you heard it or are you guessing because the reviews say its a quiet PC and in all the consumer reviews I read no one even mentioned the noise level. I am just hoping that my freind got a bad install because I cant imagine them marketing a comp that loud.
