Heh......i have 4x80mm exhaust fans (including the PSU), 2x 92mmm exhaust fans. then there is a 60 mm to unsure the AGP/CPU chips get fresh air. The cpu has the stock 2000xp HSF, with a 60mm screamer. then there is the 20mm (?) on top of theAGP set. Then last but not least there are two more on my graphics card.

Then I also have 3 barracuda 7200 HDDs and a poor old 5600 seagate, that feels left out.

The main reason for all the fans is that I have all these drives and that system in a desktop case, formally inhabited by a p2 system.

Lastly my puter runs pretty much 24/7 and you learn to tone out the noise.
Though I cant wait to get my new case finished so I can use the control panel in it to slow the fans when possible.

It has gotten to the point where i find it hard to sleep without it on, its just too damn quiet. :)

fan loudness isnt about size directly, the quietest ones typically are 80mm or higher cus the little ones dont do much...

mayhaps you should buy some cheap quiet fans from someplace... (i got some 24db 80mm's from a place for 3 bux USD each).... and swap the motor or something to cut down on sound. ducting mod would be a good choice for silencing that fan a bit tho.
