Okay heres the deal :
I have a heavily upgraded computer, that I have made virtually silent with low noice fans and noice absorbtion mats around the case, my power supply was a zalman silent PSU, unfortunatly the PSU I had although silent was only rated 300W, and after upgrading my cpu and motherboard I kind of "burnt it out".
So needing to get some work done the same day instead of ordering/researchg PSU's online I went to the local PC shop and bought a good PSU rated at 500W, and costing about £80.
Got it back and it makes a hell of a racket! The PSU is good so I dont want to buy a new silent PSU, as the one i have is great (just noisy) how easy is it to change the fans? it has x2 80mm fans currently and im thinking of putting 2 thermaltake II fans in that have sensors to change the fan speed depending on temp, they have a motherboard 3pin connector ... If i snip off the connector can i just wire it back into the PSU? or do i need a special fan for PSU's?
any light shed on the suituation would be appreciated!
