I recently put fan dampener pads on my fans, but they didn't seem to change all the much. I'm about to just take my back side panel fan off and my back fan off. but the thing that sucks is my side fan seems to make the most noise. It would look retarted to take that one off. It seems when I take the side off it make so much less noise, and doesn't seem to make sense to me. If you know any ideas of what I can do please tell me. I also think my hard drives are loud, but that will have to wait, I'm just going to get a 300gig when I get money and partition it so I only have to have one drive.
