So I opened that up, put in one of those 120mm fans that came with the case (FN 121 i believe), and that was a noticeable improvement. Not sure if the cooling is any better/worse though, since the Silverstone fan stays at 1200rpm or below, the original sometimes went up to 1500. Oh well, PSU hasn't exploded yet...
PSU is a Seasonic S12 430W. SPCR have some fairly nice things to say about it.
To give you some idea of the accoustics, sitting at my desk right now next to the computer I can also just about hear the energy saving (flourescent) light bulb 3m away.
Oh, and it's a nice change for people to pay attention to the PC itself rather than the fact I used Lian-Li drive covers in a Silverstone case
