I have dell optiplex gx280 small form factor pc. It is small and cute, but very noisy. The noise is noticeable compare to other dell or non-dell computers. Does anyone else have this model, and is it noisy also? If it is only the porblem for my pc, I may buy another one of the same model. Otherwise, I may look for other small form factor pc .
I have a Small form factor i use as an htpc i did a stupid anthough nice upgrade to it went from P4 2.8 to PD 3.4 and same deal very loud. I fixed it with cleaning out the case as above and changing the thermal paste from stock Dell square pile o crap to that freez stuff workes great now no sound unless playing 1080p stuff but the poor thing is being tortured at that point LOL.
