you bought a rubbish fan, refuse to do anything to make it better yet want it to be silent? erm... insulation? http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?...0FOAM&doy=17m4 cheaper to buy a decent fan though...

how do you know what fan I bought... the technology it uses is "smart"... not the brand.

regardless of who makes what, you picked a fan and it's too noisy for you...

well you've said you can't slow the fan down so there's really nothing else you can do to the fan itself unless you can improve on the aerodynamics of the fan blades or something, so as i suggested originally, you'd be looking at making the most of what's left by insulation and such.
