Whats the big deal with "silent" systems? - Page 4

post #31 of 32
Meh. When I first got my antec 900, I was disappointed by how loud it was (keep in mind, I have a silent PSU, and had only two antec tri-cool case fans in my previous case that ran on low all the time--a relatively silent system). But then I moved my case from my desktop to the floor, and honestly, it doesn't bother me in the slightest. I notice it, but it doesn't bother me.

Some people are more sensitive to fan noise than others. To be honest, I'd love for my system to be absolutely silent as I don't enjoy the sounds from fans, but for now, it's no biggie. One thing's for sure though--I'll never go back to a loud PSU--that's almost always by far the loudest component in a system (barring a few gfx cards...).
