Hi all, I recently built a new computer with the following components:

Case COOLERMASTER TAC-T01 WAVE MASTER
Processor INTEL PENTIUM 4 520 2.8GHZ
Motherboard INTEL BOXD915GAVL MOTHERBOARD
Memory CORSAIR VALUE SELECT DUAL CHANNEL 1024MB
IDE Hard Drives MAXTOR 120GB HARD DRIVE 7200RPM 8MB 9.3MS ATA133 OEM QUIET
Power Supply ENERMAX NOISETAKER EG375P-VE-SFMA 375W DUAL FAN W/ MANUAL FAN CONTROL

etc etc...

I am not extremely familiar with hardware related issues and was hoping to get some input on a problem I've encountered.. With my current setup (is there any important info i've left out to diagnose my problem?) the computer generates a ridiculous amount of noise! All the reviews I'd read on the hardware I used were pretty clear that the case and power supply were quite noise friendly, but that is far from the truth in my case. Any ideas what is causing my machine to sound as loud as an engine as opposed to the quiet humming sound that other PC's generally make?

Any advice or suggestions would be really appreciated, thank you!

I managed to modify my HSF so that it doesn't vibrate as much. Sometime it's the vibration that causes noises.



I wrote about it at http://cursedbox.com/?page_id=7 you will find a few other tricks as well.
