I tried lid off too. Still a little rattle kind of noise. I dunno, maybe it's just not living up to my expectations. I always heard how quiet they were. Now I've had two and they aren't close to silent..

Maybe you're just overly sensitive to the noise? Seriously, I can't hear mine running. I don't sleep next to it though, so that may be why.

Well, I think the problem is that I'm use to my Aqueon QuietFlows that I have, cause those are dead silent.

Well without the lid on it I don't hear it anymore. I think since I was specifically listening for it, it seemed really loud.. This second one is definitely quieter than the first one though.
