Why not?

Haven't tried it yet, but apparently a couple of resistors inserted in 
the circuit that powers the fan can drop the power enough to stop it 
making heaps of noise, but keep the fan spinning enough for things to 
not overheat. The site I was looking at had details of which resistor to 
use. It'd be worth a google search.
