I'm trying to quiet down my computer and need some advice...
The sources of noise come from my Thermaltake Xaser II 5000C five case fans, a stock intel cpu fan, 2 fans in my Thermaltake 420W Silent Purepower psu, and a Sapphire Radeon 9800 fan.
So, my first question would be: In what order would each item rank from loudest to softest?
I am considering replacing the following parts:
case & psu fans -------> Vantec stealth case fans
cpu HSF------------------> Zalman CNPS7000A-ALCU
radeon 9800 fan-------> Zalman ZM80C-HP VGA cooler
Which of these replacements would make the most difference (I can't buy them all... budgets a little low
Thanks in advance... any help would be appreciated.
