Re: Decrease the fan rotation X506

My X505 was super-loud too.  I cracked the case and swapped the fans.  It uses standard-sized fans.  If I remember correctly, the fan connectors may be different, so either buy fans with the right connectors, or buy some of the standard molex 4-pin power "Y" cables and use that instead.  I watch the temps and they look good after the fan swap.  Much quieter too.

This can't be done through software by the way.
