Er, dang it, I should've save the "big time +1" for this.  I guess this is a

I just realized my last post was not exactly on topic.. So:

<tip type="Workspace" author="Joshua Olson">
Change out noisier components in your computer with quieter ones (at a

fan will run about 35 USD, but cut your computer volume more than any other
single component.
