Obsession for "cheap" and quiet, therefore, remove!

As others have correctly noted, the PowerSpec V102 is a Micro Center inexpensive product. Also my Behringer NU3000 amp. It is reasonable to think that both these items used stock, noisy fans. Perhaps I have been too hasty in dismissing fans entirely. I did receive much advice to put in a quieter fan. Still I like the appeal of a dead-silent no moving partss design.

I have four laptops for various uses. Yes, I can hear the fans on most of them. Maybe hardly the MacBook Pro (too new, haven't used it much). One "cool" (pardon the pun) thing is on some notebooks, you can set in BIOS to have the fan run in quiet mode, or in my case, "always on" -- I prefer a constant, low noise rather than intermittent Hoover sound effects. Not surpisingly, this is on another bargain basement laptop, this one a Campaq CQ56.

I've already received some good leads here, and intend to research them.
