Where did I say I wanted to put it in my living room? I saw that fan mentioned earlier in this thread and someone said it works good. I'll check out the fans you mentioned. Thanks Do you happen to know how many db those fans put out?I don't think those are the best choice.
Why are you looking at the 40x10mm? Those can't provide a great static pressure, and there isn't any space constraints inside the case (the original are 28mm deep).
Try looking inside this thread, there are some suggestions. I've bought two Sunon Maglev KDE1204PKVX with an appreciable noise improvement, but it's by no means silent (and it can't be, those aren't engineered to be silent). If you want to put any IT enterprise gear in your living room well... you haven't heard other devices, some are more powerful than an airdryer.
