    I was hoping to cut my pc noise by replacing the case fan but... it was still loud as hell so I think meh it's still loud so i put my old fan at the bottome of the case for kicks.

    So now lets look at the pro/cons

    Pro: Temperature dropped 10 degrees C

    Con: Sounds like a hair dryer

    So should i only use one case fan like I did before?
    Ohh noo!!! I make dribbles!!!

    i'd take a 10 degrees c drop over a noisier puter any day
    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think "Ok, this is the limit".
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    Are there any fan guards on the Fan that you can remove? That will help reduce a noisy fan if it has a noisy fan guard. Like my Volcano.

    http://server4.uploadit.org/files2/170104-puter.mp3

    maybe then you can figure out why it's so loud, but my fans are quiet, it's just something else

    Got anything infront or behind of the fans at all?

    Sounds like the air is speeding up around something extra.

    can you record it again with the mic where you are sitting?

    it'd give us a better impression of the actual volume...
