I moved my LJ dev server into the storage room so I wouldn't have to hear it.
However, that just made it easier to hear the high-pitch ringing of my 3 disk in my linux box.
I could replace power supplies for $65 each to super-quiet ones, but I don't think that's bad part. (maybe I'll do that also... I don't know)
I'd move my Linux box to another room, but I need to plug in my monitor and peripherals.
I see two solutions:
1) Make a thin-client ... celeron, no processor fan, quiet case fan, boot from network. Then I can move linux box far away. Replace windows box' power supply and processor fan with quiet ones.
2) Move linux box's RAID array into LJ-dev and NFS mount it. Con: dependency on that machine.
Anyone have any experience combating computer noise?
