Just got my new rig and pics will be coming very soon.  I just need some quick help.  It did not fitu under my desk as my last one did and that is fine.  I have place it on top of my desk.  Only problem is that the internal fans sound very loud and my wife is not happy about that.  Can someone tell me how I can access the bios and turn them down and how low I can do it?  Sorry I am a noob when it comes to these things.  My spec is below.  I suspect that the loudest noise I hear is the video card.  Thanks!

I have got to strongly agree with Harley on this.

 

You must understand that you now have a real gaming computer.  It’s not meant to be quiet and docile.  It’s meant to be a gaming beast and that’s, I assume, why you bought it.

 

Mine too is HUGE. It would not fit in my desk, so I have it setting on the floor beside my desk.  It is, yes, much louder than my old rig.  But, you know, when I hear those fans kick in and that Thermoelectric cooling fluid rushing around, I get giddy because I know I am crushing every game I throw at it with ease!

 

So, please, do not monkey around with any fan speeds…Unless your wanting to step them UP to keep is cooler!

 

Hey, you don’t trade in your four cylinder Ford Escort for a V12 Viper and later complain about engine noise, right?

 

It’s the exact same thing, my friend.

 

Embrace the power!  It is glorious!

Thanks for all the help.  One more quick question, if I place it on the flooe it will be on carpeting.  Should I get some wood at the local hardware store to place it on, or should it be fine.  I really appreciate all the feedback!

saryan do you know what your temps are right now? people can't tell your temps are from here.

if your temps are OK with surfing and such you can turn the fans down and then just raise them again when you are ready to game, they don't have to run high all the time if its not needed.

to know if we can do that or not we need to know your temps, then turn the fans down a bit and see what the temps are again, if the temps are fine then we keep going if not we stop.

first thing you want to be sure of is that the system has plenty of room on sides, back and top for proper air flow.

PS:  In the future how can I check my temps?  I am a noob.

Thanks the HW Monitor program recorded the following MAX temps:

CPU: 45C
AUX: 29C

Intel Quad

Core 0: 55C

Core 1: 46C

Core 2: 47C

Core 3: 49C

Geforce GTX 280 Core: 41C

The CPU Fans are running at 2410 and 743 without any manipulation on my part.  Anything anyone can let me know about what these numbers mean in terms of cooling performance?
