How do you know they're too loud? Is there a nob so you can adjust the fan speed?

So sorry, I totally missed your reply.

Your fans are deffinately youtr issue, at 103cfm and 2000rpm is goiung to be god aweful loud.

They are way overkill too. You don't need 206cfm of exhaust. You can wire up a resistor inline to slow them down, but you'd be best off with some better fans that are designed to be quieter and move good air.

I have both Corsair and Noctuas that are quiet and "blowy"

You probably only need 100cfm total exhaust, and low pressure which makes them quieter.

Noctuas are very nice, well-made fans, and they also include a low-noise adapter (which is essentially an inline resistor).
