Hi.
I wanted to quiet down my new computer so i bought a Artic cooling VGA silencer rev 3. Works very well and keeps the noise down. However my case and CPU fan makes a lot of noise. I thought antec sonata was famous for its quietness... I have connected the case fan to the "fan only" connector, but its still loud...
Now for the CPU fan. Its a very high (not very loud though) whining sounds. Bad bearings perhaps?

I just ran my system without the chassi fan on. Appareantly it wasnt the chassi fan make the noise. It was the CPU fan, which the AMD HSF. Anybody know why its so loud? Are there any fans you recommend?
