Background: I did some research on this computer but somehow failed to learn of it's infamous handle, "the windtunnel". I bought it used and when I was checking it out there was a lot of background so I didn't notice the problem.
The Problem: The noise. I like to record and do various audio things, so it's really a problem, although, considering that you can hear this thing from the bedroom down the hall with the doors closed, it's a problem no matter what.
Solutions: So, after looking around on this site and xlr8yourmac.com I have been very inspired to see that people overcome this problem in numerous ways:
1) swap out the psu fans 2) swap out all the fans 3) do a complete ATX case conversion ala the "Killer Bee" and "Silent ATX G4" mods which are featured on this site 4) keep the case and do all kinds of stuff ala the "unreal G4"
