Air cooling cases. - Page 5

post #41 of 44
As far as i know, good choice! But be prepared to be possibly shocked by it's size. I saw a youtube review and the guy who bought it was amazed by it's size. That why i went with mid tower, which is still fairly large.

The Silverstone Raven/FT02 have more airflow and are quieter. The HAF cases have high airflow and acceptable noise levels. The Silverstone cases have the highest airflow while being even quieter. It's hard to beat 3X 180mm intake fans.

Go over to the silent PC review forums and check out how the recommend the silverstone cases. You won't find much recommendation of HAF cases over there. That forum is the place to go when you want advice on building silent PCs just like this forum is the place to go when you want OC advice.

I don't understand it when people are shocked by a case's size. Aren't the dimensions clearly advertised? Is it that hard to bust out a tape measure and visualize just how big it is going to be?

so yes AP181 can run at 600RPM
I can confirm this. I use a scythe kaze master fan controller and keep my AP181 fans at 600 rpm also. They can spin slower but I have had trouble getting them to turn on at that low of a voltage. You need to get them started and then you can lower the voltage so they spin at about 500 or even 400 RPM. I usually leave them at 600 just so I know they will actually start spinning when I turn the computer on. If they don't start spinning my fan controller will beep at me warning me that the fans aren't turning.

The AP181 fans are essentially silent while spinning at 600 RPM.

QFT, except the AP181's are 700rpm on low.
I measured mine at 650 RPM. Not that it is a big difference. If I turn my fan controller to max but turn the switch on the AP181 to low the fan controller reads 650 RPM. That is assuming my fan controller is delivering a full 12V.

I did this and was still amazed by the size of my case. I guess you don't know until you see it in person. You could make a cardboard box case with the same dimensions, but that might be too much work for some. I may have gone with a FT-03 now that i know how big it is. But bigger = better cooling potential.

And i havent checked the CFM of the HAF cases, but the reason the Raven and Fotress cases are so good at cooling has to do with the case design. It has cold air come in from the bottom, and hot air out the top. So hot air will naturally leave your case without the need of fans, or high CFM ones.

gon! i replied to your PM

i had 1 932.. decent case, but the airflow wasnt THAT great< hell, i had a temporary aerocool BX500 wich had waay better Temps overall (with all the fans installed) than the 932

but the 932 have the most features in 1 case that i know.. thats why people like them in general
