Default quiet

I have a raidmax ninja and the computer is a little on the noisy side.

My cpu fan is makin noise but its new and my cpu is new.

My other cpu same kind the fan is also noisy.

Its an amd athlon 64 3500+.

All my fans are quiet except that one.

I want to somehow insulate the case and don't know how.

AMD stock fans can be noisy. Look into getting a Zalman CNPS heatsink. They're really quiet.

True. You CAN dampen I guess, with case insulation, or a fan controller. But it'll raise the core temperature, which you don't want...
