Sometimes I can't even hear my music over it! How do I quiet it down? It pisses me off so much, and gives me headaches. Oh and, I can't spend any money on it, and my parents are paranoid about modding our computer, because they don't know a crap about it, so I can't really do any mods to quiet it. So I guess i'm screwed.

hey you can switch over the wires in your molex connectors in some so you use the 12v rail as your positive and the 5v as your negative , giving you 7v difference (or potential difference if you will) anyway do this and the fans will run of 7v and run slower and quieter however just juts remember not to use any of the modded pluggs for real hardware maybe even rip of the sticker and put sewing machine oul down the hole of each fan?
Ya, most fans shouldn't be loud unless they're "dry" I use veggie oil or wd40 for my fans.
Vegetable oil will only work temporarily and will cause the fan to freeze up in a very short time. Avoid it. Use WD40 or 3in1 oil.
I know and why I stopped using it after about 3 fans. The wd 40 seems to work for now, but like Bill said below, it's more of a cleaner. I should invest in some 3-1 oil or even hair clipper oil would be better becuause it's really thin, and keeps things from sticking to it aka hair or in my case, dust.
WD40 is every bit a lubricant. It is not a cleaner, but a Water Displacement formula.
It does lubricate fairly well, but it does kind of evapourate over time. I know it's "water displacement", but it does work not to badly for cleaning quite a few times.
try penetrating oil? any light oil that's not going to rot or gum up'd do the trick
I hear sewing machine oil works well that is what i have used in the past penetrating oil - Whats this? - like wd40?
penetrating oil's the same sort of stuff, just not a brand name 's more a lubricant, anyway, rather than a water-keeper-outer and cleaner
I wish WD 40 was a lubricant, because then it would be the ultimate tool.
