[TRLog] computer fan noise

The machine I use for TR Log recently lost its power supply fan.  Being 
cheap, I got a $4.00 replacement at Dayton and put it in.  It cools just 
fine, but it sounds like a hovercraft is docked under my desk.  Now this 
may be fine for creating a certain "presence" during phone contests, but 
it's annoying otherwise.

Does anyone have any info on a replacement fan that is quiet?  I know it 
can be done, because my main machine has an Antec power supply (plus an 
additional fan in the case) and it's so quiet I don't know it's on.  But 
specifics... ?  I'd prefer not to buy a complete Antec or PC Power&Cooling 
power supply if it's not necessary.
