Quieter fans are another option I'm looking into, but I don't know how
much latitude I have there.  There's a single chassis fan at the front
of the case, in the 100mm-120mm range, which I can probably swap out;
two Pentium-III processor module fans that I doubt I can do much about;
and an 80mm power supply fan that I also can't do much about.  I don't
know how much difference swapping out just the chassis fan is going to
make (though it does seem a lot noisier than the dual 120mm fans in my
gamebox's chassis).

          It's not the years, it's the mileage.
