okay my brothers computer is so abundantly loud, we think its the fan but we dont know for sure, theres just this constant "fan like sound" and there is a lot of hot air coming out of the air holes of his processor box. Is there anyway he can minimize the sound?

Hmmmmmmm, you need to be more specific,

Did this just start to happen or was it always loud?
what are your system specs or brand name and model number?
What are the "the air holes of his processor box" please describe, is out of the power supplies exhaust fan or other fans?

Yes the fans are what make them noisy get gel mounts that will absorb some of the vibration and rubber feet for the pc to rest on. And bigger fans are quiter but you can buy special quiet fans from akasa or i think vantek has a range called stealth that are also quiet.

It may also be just one of the four fans. Unplug one fan at a time to see if it is just one that has gone bad or a collection of all the fans. Or, an easier (and more dangerous) way is to physically slow one down with your finger at the risk of hurting yourself or the fan, which I am NOT recommending.

If it is all 4 fans, then an approach to solving this problem can start here....

hope this helps!
