Underclock the processor and do the 7v trick.Originally Posted by schapman43
I curently have a Vantec AeroFlow which is super loud. I'm thinking something a little more quiet would be a nice change.
I'll have to see if my MB will support underclocking. Whats the 7V trick?Originally Posted by 0l33l
I was able to underclock the processor from 1.66Ghz to 1.25Ghz. Now I just need to quiet down the fan on the heat sink!
The 7 volt trick is run the fan from the 12v and the 5 volt line, the v differance is 7 volts.

Yes, you should search... and Yes, It has been covered before!
Read the FAQ!
Underclocking a processor will only reduce heat but not noise. But I guess thats alright if your running the fan on 7v, there are cheap quiet fans though, that you can get at radio shack for like 5 dollers.

I ordered a couple ultra quiet 60mm fans to help cope with the heat. But I would still like to quiet down the CPU fan because its really REALLY LOUD. I'm probably going to order a cooler today.Originally Posted by IntellaWorks
