I have only one fan, from the silent power, but the real noise comes from
two harddisks that both spin at 7200rpm. If I shut one of them down with
hdparm, the noise goes away. It's the resonance.
Passive cpu cooler, passive GPU, silent power, silent hard disks when used
one at a time. I should start using external hdd's, there should be no
need to run two disks at a time anyway.
I've been thinking of running linux from usb-stick. So I could shut off
both hd's. That would make my system _really_ silent. The usb disks aren't
that fast though, but I should give a try someday.
