As I own a macbook I can say that the fan is pretty quiet most of the time. From time to time it ramps up for ~2minutes. Could be annoying if it's super quiet but I use mine most of the time at the university so i don't notice it that often. If you want to swap out the hdd for a ssd remember that yo...

The fan might fit but it's very close with it.
I just tried with one installation bracket and held the fan next to the Minja.

Scythe Mini Ninja
Thermalright SI-128 and Si-128se
Those three will fit without any problems.

There should be some Zalman coolers but I don't know how their names are.

fan swap or new PSU?

The fan in my PSU (the original NSK2400 one, can't get the name right now:p) is by far the loudest part in my pc. The only other moving parts are a 2,5" hdd which is dampened and two D12SL @ 7V. I am thinking of replacing the PSU fan with the 80mm fan of my Mini Ninja. The fan is a Scythe Model:DFS8...

I just ordered one at http://friese-it.de/index.php
Lets see if it can cool my E4400 passively with one or two 120mm Yates.
Case is a NSK2400.
I couldn't resist buying it, I hope it arrives till Tuesday next week.

Excuse my bad English but I'm in a hurry (got to work:()

I don't want to order a SI-128 to replace the extremely loud stock cooler and realise only 2 weeks afterwards that the mini ninja performs better when it's passive.

Scythe could provide me a testing example. :wink:

I'm sure drivers and people who pay heating bills are enjoying it a lot more.
I'm sure ski lift operators and hotels aren't enjoying their lower heating bills at all.
Although I enjoy delivering advertisments at this year's temperatures.
