I bought this Asus box and it seems noisy.http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_ ... _id=065795
I use this PC in the corner of my bedroom near my bed and I will listen to music stored on hdd so quieter is better.
The box: ASUS (M11AD-US005S) Desktop PC Mid Tower
- Intel Core i3-4130T 2.9Ghz, 4GB DDR3, 1TB HDD, DVDRW, AMD HD8350 1G Graphics
- Windows 8
(upgraded to 8GB with 4GB adata ram which I noticed draws more volts than the oem kingston 4GB chip)
The oem PSU has one fan sucking air in (as far as I can tell).
The CPU has a fan/cooler.
The case has an exhaust fan.
No fan on the MB and no fan on the AMD HD8350 video card.
I may not be adding anything to the inside of the PC except an ssd.
I don't feel much heat coming from this PC while surfing. I will use this PC for just about everything except gaming.
What should I look at first?
CPU fan/cooler? Case fan? PSU?
Any recommendations for upgrading/altering the fans to make them quieter would be most appreciated.
I am sure I could shop for and upgrade the CPU and case fan with "quieter" parts, perhaps upgrade the PSU too, but I thought folks here would have specific advice from experience.
Links to read? I will start reading what I can find here, but if you have a solution from experience, feel free to share with me.
