Thats what I'm looking for. My case is a Lian-Li 65usb. There are 2 front 80mms, and 1 rear 80mm. The power supply is loud as hell too.

So basically, anyone know any good fans that are quiet? I'm not looking for extreme performance either. I have watercooling, so I don't need it.

As for the powersupply, can I replace the fan with a quieter one? And even if I could, would it be bad for the power supply?

If anyone has any knowledge about this, please tell.
Thanks
BK

I just found a link on HardOCP for new fan technology from
WS Tech. Really neat stuff. Check it out at:
http://www.ystech.com.tw/Tmd/tmd-0.htm

According to them, there are 4 motors on the outside, and it uses magnetic technology. They also say that the main contributer to noise is the end of the blades. This new fan is supposed to get rid of that problem.

Doesn't have a date or anything about a release. Maybe I wait till those are out to replace my crappy noisy fans.

Those fans look pretty sweet. I bet there gona be expensive, but if there quite and move alot of air itle be worth it.

I wonder when they're going to be out for sale. The sooner the better because my PC is too loud.
