Hi, I've just built myself a new machine using a Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 cpu, Asrock P43Twins 1600 mobo, 4Gb DDR2 800Mhz RAM, 512mb video card, I upgraded the stock heatsink and fan to a Artic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro. Unfortunately I was running out of money so I put them in a cheap case and used a cheap 650watt PSU. The trouble is it is so noisy and i,m not sure if the noise is coming from the PSU or the heatsink fan. I have built lower spec PC's before and never had this problem. Does anyone have any idea's.
Thanks in advance.
Jules

Cheers, both sites were interesting. In the end I went down the road of getting a more expensive case and PSU. Just got to try it out.
Thanks again

Hi, well I bought a new Antec case which cost about 70 and the thing still sounds like its trying to take off, great for flight simulators!
Not sure what to try next.
Cheers
Jules

Be careful if you decide to use soundproofing material, some absorb heat making your PC hotter. Here's a link that can help: SilentPC
