Default Re: Making a computer quieter?

For the cpu I suggest a zalman 7000b-cu I have one and its VERY quiet. For your case though what is the sizeof the fan thats there? I suggest these fans if you want it really quiet.
Im not really sure about any really quiet powersupplys though. You could try seasonic's power supplies like this one
I have read good things about this powersupply in reviews

I have used Speedfan to determine my temperatures, and it is showing that at rest its about 38 degrees centigrade, after intensive use, well what I would consider intensive then its about 43.

AMD Athlon 64, 2200 (11x200) 3700+,ASRock 939S56-M, SiS 756 AMD Hammer,NVIDIA GeForce 6600LE, 2048(DDR SDRAM), Maxtor 5A300J0 300GB 5400RPM, Ultra ATA/133)

Time tells all, but if the moment in time passes and you miss it, then you will remember it for ever!!
