    Is there anyway to make my pc not so loud?

    My pc has this BMX thingy that enable it so the pc wouldnt be loud. when i enable it, its still loud.

    I have gateway 5014 and the tech support sucks.

    There are plenty ways to quiet down a computer... what's making the most noise?


    Ideas:

    Rubber grommets for the hard drive screws.
    Rubber gaskets for the case fans.
    Water cooling instead of CPU/GPU fans.

    Make sure all the fans are clean from dust. Tighten..but don't over tighten, the screws that hold everything together. (stop turning when the screwdriver stops)

    Also check the power supply as it too has a fan (usually in side) clean the vents of this

    A computer w/out water coolant system doesnt mean one that doesnt will be loud. I have a.................

    Pentium 3 GHZ Processor
    2 GB Ram
    Nvidia 256 MB Graphics Card
    500 Watt Power supply

    WITH 3 FANS IN CASE!! one for case,one on processor, one for graphics card, plus the one in power supply and my computer is VERY quiet even w/ all the fans and power usage

    Noise is 9 out of 10 caused by interior dust and also on fans

    i have a gateway with the btx (i assume u meant btx) case andit is very quiet, there is an option in bios to enable/disable cool and quiet, perhaps thats the problem.
