Hi,

As all you know, it is very "noisy" to manage  a home lab.
Actually on my 2600 & 2950 I don't hesitate to remove the fan connector
(just unplugged the connector on the motherboard)
Furthermore I let them open, so they can "breath".
Is it risky? I hesite to do the same things with a 3640.
What is your opinion?

Thx in advance.

Hi,

If you've removed the case and they can breathe there should be no risk (
unless they are at 100% LOAD 24/7, but since you've an home LAN it's not the
case ).
This is only an opinion of mine.

Regards,
Gabriele

Heat, noise and electricity is a real problem with a home lab! I don't
know what to sugggest. Below is my LAB. I just installed a larger AC
duct to make the systems more usable in the space. Send me some
pictures of your home lab.

Hi,
I changed the fan in my 2611 to one from Quietpc.com (the
three-conductor-connector it comes with fits easily onto the two pins that
come out of the motherboard).  It makes less noise than the PC now.
