Ok I bit the bullet and bought a 70mm to 80mm adapter along with a SilenX 80x80x25mm - 9dBA - 20CFM iXtrema Pro Fan. I used rubber fan mounts and now have the fan sticking off the back of my 209.
It is silent and I can sit in the room and read a book with hearing the fan at all. If I stand next to it I can hear a faint fan noise but only when the house is dead quiet. The old fan I could hear in my bedroom and it drove my wife nuts, which wouldn't work because I needed the device to run at night so I could remote replicate. Now I hear where the hard drives spin up and down. I am very happy with the 209 now.

good to see some posts regarding this problem. I just replaced the bisonic fan by a PAPST 712L Fan.
No improvements were made. So I am still searching for a solution to calm down the box.
Just a quick question about the Papst fan you mentioned.
Did you mean 712 F/2L?
I can only find the 712 F (38 dBA), 712 F/2L (25 dBA) and 712 F/2M (32 dBA) fans on Papst's site...
If you ment the 712 F/2L, then I won't bother trying it, but if it is one of the other fans it might be worh a shot...

I think, if you place it right (in cool room), it can cool itself without any fan.
