If if it's vibration issue, you can put something soft between the fan and the mount surface to help isolate the fan.

The noise at lower speeds might just be a quirk - many fans start to do weird things when undervolted.

Edit: Nvrmnd, got it sorted out, I see.
lol, ya, in between the fans and the HS, are rubber fan gromets, and its attached really tightly to the metal covering, it is making a bit more sound than i expected, im geussing its because of the restricted airflow in the HS which causes a louder noise, but then again, my heat register is making quite a bit of noise right now and pissing me off so i cant really tell. Thanks for the input though :D
