    Hi guys!
    I just wanna know if there is a solution to eliminate all this noice!
    I'm sure that my fan is very good, everything works fine but it's just that makes lots of noice

    I set up the bios with variable speed, so the fan increase or decrease the speed automatically but even at minimum speed is too much!

    I have:
    Volcano 12
    Athlon xp barton 3000
    A7N8X-E DELUXE ASUS

    any idea?
    thanks!

    Get a big ass thermalright heat sink and slap a nice Panaflo 120mm on top of it. They're what 32db? and almost 90 CFM.

    Don't feel bad, guy. I have an 80mm vantec tornado that runs near 6000 rpms constantly. It's close to 60db at times (about as loud as some vaccum cleaners).

    Water cooling does a great job of cooling but I'd really only think it was for those who need extreme quiet. I have a friend with a Zalman water cooling system on top of an Athlon 64 and it keeps his down in the 30°Cs, which is a great job but it doesn't completely knock a nice fan out of the loop. Plus it's a hell of a lot more expensive.

    I'd only go with watercooling personally if I was going to do some serious overclocking and I really really hated noise.

    hmm

    Or I had the money.

    But computer stew is something I really wouldn't want.

    HI guys!
    thanks for your help!

    the only thing I can do is try another fan, because the water cooling system is too expencive

    I checked the Zalman but I think it doesn't work for the socket A

    I wanna just make shure now that the cpu doesn't get hot

    My mate has the Thermaltake aquarius on his PC, he got it for his Christmas (lucky b-----d!). It has made one hell of a difference to noise.
