My computer is as louder than Zeus's unrelenting thunder. I need a new Case fan to replace it. I don't know much about fans so can someone tell me what to look for in terms of specs.

Also, what other methods of cooling is there for the entire computer?

This could be your computer overheating and your fan kicking into high speed. What is the model of your computer? Also do you know which fan is making the loud noise?

Of course, which fans to get is entirely based on what your case will take. Are you using stock fans for the case and CPU?

Have you checked your temps? Have you cleaned out the dust in your tower and off the CPU heatsink lately?
