    Fan noise problem

    With my epia system and a PC Power and cooling going - the fan noise is far too loud. I want something that is nearly silent - this is a family car and it the whir of the fans are too much.

    Anyone ever rplaced the fan on the PC power and cooling to get a quieter fan?

    Ditto for an epia system?

    Any other suggestions?

    Thanks

    use papst or any other "known silent" fans, or get 120mm ones and run them at 5v

    Thanks - the epia is very silent - the problem is the PC Power and Cooling fan. I am going to try and replace.
