I just got my Boxx dual 3.0 :buttrock: Everything is good, but I have a question. I have read several post on the subject of Boxx fan noise on dual processors. Ed even mentioned that they run below 50 dB and someone poseted this helpful link.

Everything is running smooth but it sounds like Im running a humidifier under my desk. I can even hear it in the other room. Its about 3 times as loud as my old computer. Probably because it has more fans. ED is that normal noise level for this machine? I just want to make sure everything is cool.

Thanks

I think you're ok. Louder than your old machine does not surprise me. The newer procs from both Intel and AMD are running over 100 watts and it takes a lot to cool them. Believe it or not, the fans on those heatsinks are as quite as we could find and they were expensive to boot! If you think there's a problem, give our tech support a call so we can verify that it's not something else.

Thats cool. Im sure everything is fine. just making sure. I can really hear that airflow through this machine. I guess that a good thing. I should also keep my AC on 60 for superior performance. :D

You know I actually read on a hardware forum, someone puting their computer in those mini fridges so they could over clock it and keep it cool.....Man...Some people just have to much time on there hands :)
