    Just turn it down. Are you using thermal control or manual pot?

    The fan is the best part of the Venus. Anything that moves almost 76 CFM and is only 80mm is going to be noisey. If you turn it down a bit it still cools very well and is quite a bit less noisey. 3500-3800 RPM is not so bad. Mine runs from about 2000 to 5600 RPM, and below 3000 it is vertually silent.

    yeah it is turned down as low as it can go to keep the cpu temperature reasonable, not a problem will just wear ear plugs!

    Didn't PrivatePlye say that at the lowest setting it's at 21db? That's quiet! You sure it's not something else making the noise?
    I don't mean to sound cold, or cruel, or vicious, but I am so that's the way it comes out.

    nope its definately the fan, its ok at the mo as the chip isnt oc'ed and is quiet with the cpu running about 35 degrees at idle. It just gets very loud when you turn it up which i what i will have to do when i start to push it a bit.

    Have you got it set so it automatically changes the fan speed? Mine is on manual and almost always on the lowest setting (about 2000RPM?). I can't hear it at all and my CPU never goes above 40C, even when overclocked and on full load (good airflow helps too, to disperse the heat).

    no way i tried the temperature adjustment and it had my cpu runnning at 60 degrees, its on manual control, my airflow is ok, could be slightly better as the front two fans are blowing over the HD rack, might crank the case fans up a bit, turned them down to 2000 rpm but i might bump them back up nearer 3000.

    You really shouldn't be able to hear it then, if it's only at 2000RPM... That's slightly worrying. Is it old? Perhaps the ball bearings have worn down a little? If it's not old, then perhaps RMA it? Mine's silent to about 3000RPM...

    :edit: Let me rephrase that, I'm not able to hear mine over the quiet 120mm fans, quiet hard drives or Arctic Cooler VGA silencer at ~3000RPM!

    The Venus 12 is a high performance cooler. If you want better cooling without the noise you need a highend water system. High performance coolers in general are more noisey than standard (not mean't to be overclocked) cooling.

    I highly recommend this cooler

    It is silent, and has caparable performance to the Venus 12. I use it, and think it's great.

    That cooler is nowhere near as good as the Venus 12. It also has the same noise level as the Venus 12 turned all the way down.

    If he wants decent performance with low noise and doesn't want water the Zalman 7000 Cu is probably the best choice.

    Presumably you have used both of these coolers then? I have, and there is about a couple of degrees' celsius difference between them in identical systems, also the one I own is quieter than the Venus, even at it's (the Venus') lowest speed. Sure you'll see slightly higher temps, but it's a more than adequate cooler besides.

    A mate bought a Venus 12, but he got complaints from his girlfriend because of it's noise level( ). He bought a SilentBoost after I recommended it and he's had no complaints since ...

    Err, I mean with the noise....
