    Really loud computer =/

    hey, first of all thanks for taking the time to look at my thread.

    my computer seems to be really loud, i really notice it right before bed when the house is silent and it turns off. its like a plane when its on. i tried stopping some of the fans whilst starting up and i found that the cpu fan makes the most noise =/
    i would like to make it quieter but still able to run half decent games when need be, for example, Aion.
    could anyone recommend any changes i could make or any cpu fans i could purchase that would be quieter than my current "freezer pro 7" and under £20 budget.

    many thanks,
    Snipes
