Sounds about like a first generation DC-9 revving up for roll out?

I've had very good luck shutting up XT2190's and RD54's simply by turning
them upside-down. In my particular set up (old pee cee cases) they also
run _much_ cooler. That might present mounting and cabling
complications in your situation. YMMV.
