I don t think you can lower the fan speed on those kind of coolers I think they are just 1 speed. Hard drive coolers are loud mine makes a winning sound I got use to it after a while. You would problay have to get a new one that makes less nose.

Yeah, just get a VR from Radioshack and hook it up the red(?) wire. Or at least I think it's red. You don't need to increase the resistence on all the lines, just the one carrying the power.

uh worker you can.

 

If you lower the volltage to a certain item, it will decrease preformance... in the case of a fan, it will slow down.

 

slowing down= less RPM which would equal to quieter
