My PC is too loud!!! lol
So I have an old Dell Dimension 4550 (4-5 years old) to tell you the truth it is still a pretty decent machine. Pentium 4 3.4 GHz, 2 GB RAM running Ubuntu It has 2 500GB hard drives. I only use it as a file server to hold all my music, movies and to do regular backups of my laptop.
It runs fine but when there is nothing else on, you can hear a hum that is somewhat annoying. I know its not the hard drives, because it is a constant hum, not intermittently while I am doing something on it.
Will changing the case fan to a newer quiet one take care of the majority of the noise? I can deal with a small hum of the fan, but right now, in order to cover it up, i need to run the air conditioner in my room to overpower it. The ceiling fan on high won't even cover up the noise.
