also i havent heard anything about if these cases resist high pitched sounds or not

do you know?
The case has sound dampening material so it will help minimize sound. Just wondering have tried running your computer without a case? It should help you locate the high pitch noise. Are you using a fan controller to control your case fans because some fans when the are undervolted they can put off a high pitch noise too.

no i dont have one

so you would suggest turning off my fans and seeing how that helps


actually the sound is most def comming from the mobo area do you think my heatsink fan could be causing this?

its a stock intel one

There is nothing in a CPU that can make the whine itself. I suppose some CPUs may make the motherboard whine.

There are three typical causes of whine in a computer. PSU, GPU and motherboard. You've already eliminated two of them, maybe.

How about instead of just replacing hardware nilly willy, find out FOR SURE what the source is?

If it's whining it will be the caps or the coils. Nothing else.

No case you can buy, and no material you can add in will do enough to stop you hearing it.

You need to determine what it is that's making the noise, and (generally) either over or underclock it so the noise stops. Or return it because it whines and swap it for something else.

Nothing else you can do that will give you a satisfactory result I'm afraid.

So any case with soundproofing is a copy of the P series?

I had this problem before - solved it by switching power supplies. But sometimes switching graphics cards work. The whining is caused by capacitors/coils and no case can really damp it out.

Its actually a common problem - try searching "coil whine" and you will find alot of hits. It's kind of random. I had an older Corsair power supply in two computers (I think its a 520 modular) - the exact same supply with two identical computers..and only one whines and one doesn't.

Silencing should always be done at the source. The 'case' is just the icing on the top. The problem with cases like the P183 is that they have restrictive air input - thus while they might screen out some noise you will have hotter components.

One of the quietest air cases was found to be the gamer style FT02 because of its excellent cooling.

I agree competely. Just think of having a sound proof room, its virtully fully sealed air can't travell freely in or out, but you silenced the sound(cases are the same virtually) you will limit the air flow, and damening materail can only do so much to dampen the noise. I would unplug the psu and plug it in a old motherboard, just to see if that is whats making the sound. Or the gpu too, once you isolate it, then consider a good case with good air flow. Any fan above 20db i dont like, maybe you might be like that too?
