My power supply cooling fans are annoyingly loud. This has been a problem for years but I'm in a quieter environment now and it is too much. The processor fans seem to be ok, but, I am going to replace the old heat sink compound between the processor and heat sink anyway. I would like to replace the power supply fans with quieter models. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what brand I should look for, do they fit, where to look? I can get exact replacements from Dell suppliers, but they will be just as loud. Perhaps there is a whole power supply that is compatible and will fit nicely?

I am attaching a report from Everest Diagnostics in html format just in case you are curious about the temps. These are normal for morning and only slightly higher in the afternoon.

Nevermind, I'm an idiot. There was a wad of lint and dust blocking a vent.
Problem solved.
