    Hey...

    I have some werid noises comming from my PC lately. I'm thinking of looking into some quiet PC fans. Anyone have any sources for some good ones?

    I'm thinking to replace a 8mm fan and hopefully the CPU heatsink/fan.

    Thanks,

    CM.

    Take a look at http://www.quietpcusa.com

    I don't know if their prices are good, but at least you'll get an idea of which parts are quiet.

    I've been a proud Zalman user for quite a while. They use Sunon fans with their products.

    Sorry. That site wasn't working last night. It is coming up now. That is the sort of thing I was looking for. The last thing you want a media pc being is noisy. You wanna be able to hear the movie without the PC getting in the way.

    Thanks for the info.
