i think the fan loudness is to do with a rogue bios setting somehow. i recall having an advent t11 that spent the first year of its life in silence. then, after taking it to a free tuneup (will never do that again), it came back very noisy. originally the fan throttled back and only went loud after a certain (rather high) temperature. but that setting seems to have disappeared. couldn't find it again.

We checked the BIOS to see if we could alter the fan settings but no luck - and the system should come preconfigured at its most silent anyway, since many consumers who buy this kind of PC won't even know what a BIOS is.

a bit of a tangent...

my Dell desktop Studio XPS - recently purchased - sounded like someone doing the hoovering with a full bag, I gave Dell grief, they swapped out the rear fan etc, all to no avail. By and by I chanced upon a BIOS update on the Dell support page, guess what, they have remapped the fan, its much quieter now.

(at least your readers know what the BIOS is!)
