hi, does anyone or anyone know anyone who hosts bots? maybe for free? :\ I'd
do it myself, I have broadband and a good new computer and such..but my
computer is just a *tiny* bit loud, and right in my room, annoying, will
bots/internet connection keep going if the hd is shutdown? I know standby
doesn't work, it disconnects everything...stops all programs...help,
suggestions, flames, whatever :-)

buy an extremely bad computer and put a cheap HDD in there. Hook it up to
your computer via a network card and put it in another room where you can
leave it on. Of course, you'll have to put the connection on the other
computer and leave that on all the time. Or what would be better is to just
replace your HDD or (what's more likely making the noise) the fans. Some
fans can even be disconnected without causing any difference to the speed or
reliability.

In a galaxy far far away, known as general.discussion, an identity
claiming to be known as "maki" <maki at awmaki.com> scribed the

I can only suggest for you to take a look at the site I found at
http://www.pccasegear.com.au (yes, I'm in Australia, you'll need to
find something in the U.S), and that you look at the link 'Fan Control
(http://www.pccasegear.com.au/category18_1.htm)'.

There you can find fan controllers which allow you to check your CPU
temperature as well as slow down or turn off fans without even having
to open your case every time. They cost as low as $125 AUS (around $60
US) and do a great job :)

Take a look at the rest of the site by the way, so many cool things to
make yourself a 'show off' with your computer and casing.

Anduin is talking about "fan buses" or "bay buses." They are pieces of
hardware that allow you to turn certain fans on or off inside of your
computer, thus reducing the noise or "whine" of the fans. Besides using
those, you could get some sound proofing products made to be put inside
of computer cases (prices are around $15 - $35 USD). Other options
include moving the system to another area or putting on noise canceling
headphones when the noise irritates you.

well, that's great and all, but I tested it, the cpu fan is only a small
bit, and it's more muffled when encased, so it's a very small sound, along
with the power supply fan, that's nothing - I unplugged the cpu fan and it
is my hd, it emits a high pitched sound, kind of hard to explain, but it's
very annoying, I don't know why it does it...sound of it spinning, oh well
:\

I agree with chazrad. The Seagate Barracuda drives are extremely quiet,
even when the drive is seeking. If you don't want to go buy an entire
new drive, you could buy an enclosure for the drive that tries to dampen
its sound. Just look through some PC hardware and/or overclocking sites
and you'll find one.
