Dell 8300 dimension - Rather Loud

Hello

I don't expect too much of a response on this, however I recently purchased a Dell Dimension 8300 and I am very pleased with the PC on the who, ie performance stc..

However, I do find it to be a littl loud, particularly when it is working hard, has anyone else had this experience and have they resolved it. i thought about contacting Dell to see if the fan was faulty.

Sounds similar to my sisters machine, when the load
increases temperatures rise and the fan speeds
increase to compensate,it's normal for a Dell.
The only solution would be to fit a better heatsink
on the CPU and quieter power supply, this would
obviously invalidate any warranty.
We ended up placing it below the desk which
has cut some of the noise down.

sounds like the fan is off axis if its a new pc phone them and tell them to replace it, if u cant some liquid silicon (for the fan)and a wiggle can sometimes suffice
