    Ok i bought this pc via internet and when i got it i noticed the fan
    is way too loud.It has a big fan right below the power supply on the
    back one on the side one mini fan in the front and one slot fan for
    the graphics card.This pc is an AMD 2500 XP, A7sus board.I think its
    400 fsb.The pc has been over clocked to 3200+.Are there any options to
    get a more quiet fan and keep the speed?A nearby pc repair shop said
    in order to have a quiet fan i needed to put the proceesor back at
    specs.It has a digital temp gauge in front usually stays around 31
    celsius.

    Thanks,Lynn

    you can put whatever fan you want in there but you would need to watch the
    temperatures and take necessary actions if you see them going too high.
    that 31 C temp is fine...

    as an experiment, disconnect the fan entirely and boot back up while
    watching the temperature to see what effect the fan has to begin with. you
    will likely see an increase in temperature, especially under significant
    loads so it isn't wise to leave it that way but at least you could come away
    with some idea what possible mid-point you could go to in terms of a fan
    size and RPM.

    the computer shop is playing things safe by telling you that you would need
    to clock at normal speeds with a smaller fan because they don't want you to
    come back and say they caused you to burn up your system if they advised
    that you could reduce fan size and/or RPM. the reality is that without
    testing, no one knows what the effects of a smaller or slower fan would be.
