    Noise reduction

    Anyone know a good way to pretty much silence the noise coming from the fans? My studio microphone pics up every noise in my house but this one is the loudest and closest :/
    I was thinking about sound absorption foam to put inside the case or outside.. I dunno
    any suggestions?

    Clean your PC, get a fan controller, or opt for a quieter one.
    Aren't those the main 3 options, as putting foam would block cool air and insulate the heat (which you dont want)

    Took apart my pc today, it's a cm storm enforcer case so there's a 200mm fan on the front -.-

    It's pretty new, only built it a few months ago
    I can control the fan's from the pc already through ASrock's extreme tuner :L
    I guess there's no other way except buy new quieter fans

    Might even sell it and then build a better one (that's what I did with my last pc LOL)

    Get noctua case fans or some nice gentle typhoons. Put some dynamat on the side panels. Not much else you can do. Could always go for completely static cooling (with just a rear fan and a front fan), but I've never tried before.

    Must just be an old HDD, newer ones don't make as much sound
