Default My fan is too noisy

Thats what I have and I was wondering If I could slow the fan down even more and its allready at minimum on the speed control and the blower is too but the blower isn't making alot of noise like the fan is!!!

Certain fans are jsut louder than others, especially older bal-bearing designed ones. Panaflo's are known for being quiet, Delta's as well.

I had a fan that came ith my Dynatron cooler and it pushed over 50cfm's i believe, 4800-5000RPM's (and it was only a 60mm, very thick though) You could hear that thing down the hallway on high. I ran it at 10% power and it was still pretty loud.
