That's it, I'm pissed off right now.

I just woke up after leaving my computer on and it is noisy as it can ****ing possibly be.

I am not overclocking and not running anything that would increase CPU usage by a lot... just music.

I have an a64 3000+ with stock cooling, an msi ti4200 and a thermaltake 480 silent purepower with the secondary fan to it's minimum.

I would expect some noise being with stock cooling, but this is just ****ing ridiculous.

I've had it.

This thing sounds like a ******* vacumm cleaner. Worst thing is here in colombia I have no chance of getting any improved cooling.

I'm REALLY pissed off right now... for other reasons which will not be discussed.


If anyone have any solutions, pray tell befor I go out of my mind.


I need to go ba to sleep.

Out.

turn your computer off :)
but seriously, you should turn off every fan in your case one by one and see which ones are the noisiest and chuck them

speed fan is your friend. A64's with C&Q run really cool so you can usually have the fan running very low.

If you really have to have quiet, look at the Zalman silent case. Its not cheap, around $300 i think but the whole case is a heatsink with heatpipes from the CPU, GPU and so on.

You must be hyper sensitive to noise though, my Cooler Master case has 4 case fans, the CPU and GPU fans and a PSU fan and the tower sits next to my monitor about 12" away from my ears and its not loud at all. Maybe you have a bad fan?

the stock cooler for the a64 @ load does tend to get a little loud..

on my system I run msi's corecenter to limit the rpm on it to a manageable level otherwise it is quite noticeably loud..

if you have a similar management software use it else get a different heatsink with a quieter fan on it...

Stick a Delta 80mm in your system for a week then remove it, suddenly it won't seem so loud :D

You could try a Thermailright XP-120 (http://www.madshrimps.be/?action=getarticle&number=1&artpage=851&articID=220) , or if you really want quiet cpu cooling, the Zalman Reserator 1 (http://www.ipkonfig.com/cms/index.php?option=content&task=view&id=144&Itemid=29&limit=1&limitstart=0).
Ofcouse, it could be some other fan that are making the noise, for me it was the NB fan on an old Epox slot A mobo...

Sorry, after living with my 5800 Ultra, and not being botherd by it much, nothing is real loud.. of course, maybe thats 'cause I have my Klipsch 2.1 turned up loud all the damn time.. heh
