My current pet project is to try and quiten my PC. Current noise makers are 2 case fans, stock AMD 60mm CPU fan and the PSU fan.
I'm soon to be getting a 60-80mm adaptor for the CPU fan, so I'm thinking of hooking that and the two case fans to a fan controller. Hopefully I'll be able to turn the CPU fan (and the case fans) down at night or when the CPU is idling.
My PSU is pretty cheap, and pretty noisy. I have already replaced the fan in the PSU with an old case fan I had lying around and it's now a bit quieter, but it will be the loudest thing in my system as I can't control the speed.
Main question is: should I replace the PSU fan with a thermally controlled case fan such as this Antecand stick the temp sensor to the side of the PSU or would this be dangerous?
I'm not sure how these fans work and at what temps they start speeding up or down.
