My computer is a little loud, I was just wondering what makes it so loud? Power supply, graphics card, etc. What makes the most noise on average. Also if there are any tips on making whatever I have a little less noisy. thanks
1. Change the power supply to one with a SINGLE 120mm fan.
2. Cut out all fan grills on case with a dremel, replace fans with quiet rated models, be sure to use rubber grommets instead of normal metal screws.
3. Replace CPU HSF with a quiet aftermarket one, preferrably with a fan larger than 80mm.
My computer used to be loud. And I mean LOUD. I could be out in the kitchen making dinner and I could hear the roar of it. I did these three things, and I can barely tell the difference from my computer being on and off now.
EDIT: Also, hard drives can be loud. Suspend your hard drive in a 5 1/2" bay with some type of lacing so it is not contacting any metal, like so:
for blue led ones get the alphacool silenx, only 14db, but pretty good airflow, for the other fans, for anyother regular fans, get the akasa amber fans, really quiet, but has higher cfm than most fans ive seen of the same noise level, alos get dampaning lits for the psu, and the fans
