Find out which fan it is by taking it out and testing it.

You could also try things like rubber gromits to reduce vibration and large heatsinks to allow any fans you have to go slower.

i guess i have the best heatsink for an lga775 and thats the stock one i just unplugged all my fans and its still not very quiet but it is fine and i idle at 30*C and i dont dare play a game because only god know what would happen im thinking 50*C so im not going to do that but i was looking at these fans
Cooler Master Ultra Silent 80mm Case Fan at newegg and they say they are silent u think i just replace the ones i got right now with these and that will be good or are they realy not like they say SILENT

30*C idle for a precot 775 is very good temperature.

If you dont mind losing the overclock, than reset the cmos, take out fans and do not replace the side panel, this will keep it cool until you get the fans. I like my akasa lighted led fans, as they are quite quiet, but I dont care about noise, as I always have music on when ikm on the pc.

the top ones are quiet.
