Hi,
I built my computer in June, but it is very noisy. Does anyone know any good quiet/silent case fans?
I only need one 120mm fan.
If I buy a fan that has the four pin connector, will my motherboard vary the speed? At the moment my fan is on 100% all the time!
Also, a quiet/silent good quality CPU heatsink/fans for LGA775 (My cpu is intel q9650)?
Thanks

I want to compare the power and noise to my current case fan, but I dont even know what fan it is because it came with my case.
The fan has a serial number of DFS122512L, but more than one fan has this code.
My case is an Apevia X-Telstar Jr.
Thanks

Is it the fan located on the inside back of the case?
Being a 120mm fan that would be my guess at this point.
What program are you looking at that gave you the 100% fan speed reading?

Yes it is the fan located at the back of the case.
I havent used a program; the fan has the old 4 pin connector (I believe it is called Molex) connected directly into the PSU, so it is always on 100%!

Yep thats what it is suppose to do.
That fan blows the hot air out of the system so it should be running at full capacity.
Anything else less could cause overheating with the system. There are better 120mm fans on the market that could run quieter but they do cost a little more then a OEM brand.

My computer is so noisy I can't work on it though!
It would be nice if I could find out how many decibels my fan is so I can buy a quieter one.
If I connected a 3 pin fan to the motherboard, would it vary its speed according to the temperature?
