I was told that 42 ohm should slow the fan down for about 70%.
And there are scripts that monitor the hdd temperature and can ask the fan to spin faster if needed.
Now all I really need is a 42 ohm resistor to move on!!! :)On 6/8/07, bluemax_101 <bluemax_101@...> wrote:
When LS is placed on a table, noise is at its worst. I placed it on a

was very noticeable. Then I put the LS on its side, on the carpet in
a small area under the bottom shelf. Now it is quite enough to live
LS is a good looking design. So it's a shame to hide it away like
this. Can't see the LEDs either. So I look forward to the mods that
Wladston is planning to develop :-)
