Tried a couple of fans here, the current one I have is even louder
than the stock one, although it was much quieter when installed 2
I think the folks saying the fan grill is part of the problem are
right. I know removing it would help, however I'm a bit reluctant to
mutilate my qube.
One soloution is getting one of those pci coolers (I'm not using my
pci slot atm)
