Yeah, throw a lower RPM fan on the header and you'll hear it. I'm going to try a higher CFM fan I think, the switch is pushing ~60C at idle right now and it's quieter than any of the quiet machines near it. I might try some sound damping mat on the lid of the case and see if that cuts some of the PWM noise too, it's right at the top of my hearing range and while it's not loud it's somehow shrill.ooh interesting, that would be the PWM drive circuitry on the main board then. I'll have to try and listen for it next time
I wouldn't be dicking with the switch nearly as much if I weren't reading and sleeping in the same room, it's pretty damn quiet right now.
Edit: the PWM noise is literally the only thing I can hear from the switch, in any room but a bedroom I don't think anyone would be able to hear it at all.
