ok so i think im getting a Poseidon 310 as my new pretty case and i was wondering how many fans i could shove in it with out it being loud.

P.S. sorry for the n00bness but my hubby is the computer builder but this is kind of going to turn into my project

I use electrical tape between the case and the fans to dampen the noise a bit. I find I can dump a few more fans in a case if I use this method.

The type of fan you use also makes a difference in volume. I will try to find a link to some rubber mounting hardware I saw for fans that is supposed to reduce vibration.

Yeah I was gonna suggest that, but electrical tape is quicker and cheaper.
