    are they noisy all the time or more so when 1st powering up. disconnect the side fan to see if quieter & also unmount that fan but still plugged in to see if any difference in noise levels. could replace the fans with more silent ones or mount the side fan on rubber pads to reduce vibrations

    Wow just took the side of the pc found that all three fans are noisy in there own way but the one on the processor i think is the noiseiest and the one on the case is just resinating threw the box
    i just dont understand how you can by a pc from the shop and it be almost silent am i running a fast set up or somthing that is going to run hotter than normal

    a little thing called profit, the quieter the fan the more expensive it is, the less profit in the system they get
