    Need help FANs


    Hi i have a sony vaio desktop. Pentium 4. 1gb ram. 3 ghz. My fan is so so LOUD. Its a delta. Not the fan in the back of the pc but the fan that cools the processor. Do you guys now any fans that are quiet but will keep my computer cool?
    Thanks in advance.

    I have an aerocooler, cheaper than that model but it's pretty quiet. The larger the fan you can get the slower it has to turn to move the same volume of air, and thus produces less noise. Heat pipes and lots of cooling fins help with passive cooling so the fan is not as critical.

    Sorry to post so long after the last, but wanted to add that the Arctic Cooling Freezer series (4 for 478 and 7 for 775 are excellent at cooling and are very quiet. They are also very cheap too at around 16 each.

    That's a very good price. Can I ask, where did you see them at that price ??
