Kyle over at the [H]ardOCP has put together a very readable little article on how he manged to quiet down a PC using some unconventional tricks and a very low budget. Some of his ideas have a lot of merit, are easy to implement, and cost about zero. If your home is haunted by fan noise like mine is, I'd definitely recommend reading this article.
Heck, mid-way through reading it myself, I stopped, opened up my PC, and unplugged four of the 3.5" cooling fans. That still leaves five fans (six if you count the one in the CD-RW drive) in my box, but boy, it's a lot quieter now. My Athlon's holding steady at 96 degrees. I sure hope this works.
Now, back to hacking some quiet into my Pee Cee...
