Whats the big deal with "silent" systems?

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
I have an Antec 900 with all the possible fans installed, including an Antec Spot Cooler on my mosfets. The sound doesnt bother me at all. I prefer a semi-loud system and low temps. I personally think that its a small amount of people that prefer silent systems. Just wondering.

You don't have powerful fans.

You are one of those silence-lovers of which you speak.

Pick up some Deltas and be converted, infidel! (btw the spot cooler is silent)

Quote the whole a person's post, not part of it. It's kinda rude.

Also, truth can hurt.

Ok thanks! I guess i dont have the experience of loud fans!

If antec fans are quiet then i understand why people want quiet pc's.

The spot cooler is absolutely silent. As are the antec fans. I'mjust wondering why people replace the antec fans because they are too loud. I'm just a noob with a noob question.

*unrelated* no need to flame.

:swearing: fan noise

I hate certain noises due to very sensitive hearing... fan noise and leaking air hoses are the pits

Thank you, thats all i was asking about. I was just wondering why people seek out silent systems.

I tend to block out 'white' noise and wondered why there were so many threads about silent systems, wasnt a criticism on them, just a question fanboi's.

I'm perfectly fine with a loud system... Mine is louder than 95% of this forum and I have no problem with it.
