PROBLEM: Noisy fan on my FreeBSD box
SOLUTION: Disconnect noisy fan

It's amazing how much quieter my FreeBSD/Squid cache box is with it's 120mm fan disconnected. I should know in about 24 hours as to whether my quick estimations on it's heat output and cooling requirements were accurate, but for now the acoustic improvements are worth the risk!
