My mini is as quiet as a church mouse 95% of the time. The only time I hear the fan kick in is when I'm watching DVD's, ripping CD's or watching streaming video of the net. Is this increase when you are ripping or listening to CD's?

As soon as a disc goes in the fan kicks in! Oddly enough sometimes at night the fan just comes on then goes off.

I'd probably run the hardware test CD. Maybe something has gone wrong with your mini's heat sensor or fan. Is it really loud or just a nuisance?
