Re: Studio XPS 435MT - problem with fan

My Studio XPS 435MT did the same thing on the first startup. After installing some apps, a few Windows updates and a few reboots, now the fans are relatively quiet (but still noisy overall). Only on one occaision recently did I hear the fan crank up to leafblower noise level, when i ran SyncToy to merge about 30,000 mp3 files all at once.

Overall the noise from the one rear case fan is unacceptable. I have a new one on order. I'll post a review if the noise level is any better. Here it is: http://www.quietpc.com/gb-en-gbp/products/92mmfans/x-rw-92r

I found the idea from this guy's post: http://www.voidware.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=43&Itemid=2.

Good luck!
