Ok - so here's the scoop - i work for a computer storage company - we buy storage units off lease and whatnot particularly from one brand - and refurbish them to sell. Now we got a whole bunch of scsi hard drives in - and we needed to test them - seeing as how i'm the part time guy - who usually isn't that busy - i get to have fun testing these 300 some harddrives before we can sell them now we are running an old storage shelf in the front room where my desk is to test the drives. problem is - (as with all sever units - but this one really is bad) - the cooling systems: Big @ss super powerful fans that just are so loud you have to almost shout to the dude across the room to be heard!!! these are just larger versions of regular fans- mounted on the back of this shelf - and only one of them is on (you need to have SOME cooling. anyone here know of how to dissasemble a fan or something to quite it down at all???? obviously i might loose some coolign ability - but as long as the temperature doesn't rise high enough to reach the alarm point where the shelf shuts itself down - we are fine. thanks guys!
