> where did you find the slow moving case fans?
Kirk, I got an Enermax dual fan speed "controller"
that fits in a floppy bay. It has temperature probes
too, but I perform the "control" function as there's
no feedback or actual controller. ;)
The fans could still be heard so I used Zalman series
resistors on the fans too. That brought the speed
down to about 1000 rpm at the minimum speed, which I
can't hear. My two drives are very quiet but they are
now the only objects making any sound at all. If I'm
not viewing TV, I can always turn the speed up to a
maximum of 1700 rpm using the front panel pots. 1700
rpm is barely audible and it drops the temps in the
case a couple more degrees C.
