brent I feel like I should make one asking about a quiet power supply fan
yeah, it doesn't matter how quiet the rest of your fans are, if your PSU is noisy then your computer will be constantly noisy, in my experience. is it easy to open one up and replace the fan? I've never tried. I don't quite feel like replacing the entire PSU just for the sake of quiet...
I have a "Be Quiet!" CPU cooler which is pretty effective and quiet as far as I can tell. I've also adjusted my BIOS settings so that the fans are off at idle.
I bought a couple of Noctua case fans but I can't seem to get them to work. I'm not sure if they're defective or just incompatible with my motherboard or something.
