My computer is really noicy. Is it the Hard disc or the CPU cooler? I have changed both at the same time and the increased noice level began thereafter.

Do you have any case fans? What kind of heatsink/fan/mobo/HDD do you have? Some HDDs are known to be really noisy. How many RPMs is it? Are you overclocking?

my computer is generally quiet, except for wen my 4th and 5th fans kick in, then it goes really loud and can wake me up wen im drunk! :o. if u want to try and quiet ur fans down, get some grease from a computer shop, and on most fans u'll see a sticker, pull it up a bit and lube the bit under neath. but dont open ur psu to try and do it to that. if you want a quiet psu, u'll jus have to buy a low noise one. but i must be honest and say they are worth it.

4. and 5. fan? Jaysis. Anyone heard of passive coolance here? Or maybe rearrange your fans to be more efficient?

Or, in a perfect world, we'd all be on water cooling systems :p

Generally speaking, air cooling does a good enough job unless your doing extreme overclocking. So water cooling is usually unnecessary, and if you buy the right fans, and position them intelligently, you can have a system that's pretty close to water cooling as far as noise go's :)
