Server noise down
Although my pc runs smootly, i am trying to bring down the noise it makes. Let me tell you what i have in my server. A AMD Duron 1300 MHz ( not overclocked!!!) and 8 IDE devices, 4 of them are harddisks and the other 4 DVD Drives. Now the question :
Is there a passive(fanless) cooling method for my processor and a very quit ATX powerunit , which makes hardly no noise and not so expensive. Although i have so many devices, i don't use them all at once.

if you bought a cheap case with a power supply included, you have a really cheap psu, they make noise, if you buy a good one, they are usually very quiet. as for the cpu, either buy a really good fan, i dont like to post names on most things(sparks a ford/chevy debate) but i use a coolermaster, very quiet, and my athlon 2800+ is happy. to get even more quietness you would have to water cool, almost no noise. if your case is a really cheap feels like a beer can, it to will cause noise.

water cooling is quiet, but cost a bit. and then you have lines and a tank to contend with.
