HP Pvailion Slimline Desktop

I purchased a desktop from Bestbuy two days ago (HP Pvailion Slimline Desktop Model 400-224 6GM memory 1TB hd) and I found out that the fan blows very loud. I have not installed any additional software yet.It has a lot of good reviews. What should I do beside returning it and get a different type of pc?

Hi,

Did you look here?

try adjusting the power settings.. the fan noise is common in these models..

Slimlines have small fans and they have to run faster to move the same amount of air. Ergo they will be noisier

i suggest returning it, and pick one with a normal case, mid tower range.
these have 12cm fans, while yours are 9cm; and as said - these run faster  for the same cooling effect
you can put it in a airconditioned cabinet, or room and see if it runs quiter (but i doubt it)
another solution is buying quiet fans :
