Fans creating like a vortex noise?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So I recently bought some Yate Loons fans low speed (which are amazing by the way) and I wanted to add some extra fans in my cooler master storm scout.

So as some of you may know the scout comes with a 140mm fan as an intake, a 120mm fan and a 140mm as an exhaust. Its alright but isn't the greatest.

So I decided to add some 120mm fans as intakes. 1 was placed in the front of the cd/dvd drive bays. Another was placed on the opposite side of the HDD cage. Now here's my problem.

You know how sometimes when your driving a car and you have the window cracked slightly and the wind starts to create like this "wompwompwompwomp" vortex sounding noise? Yeah my case started to do that. BUT when I popped my side panel off, it stop. So I'm assuming that the fan that's attached to the HDD cage is causing this.

does anyone know how to fix/stop this this?

It may be some vibrational noise. When it is making the noise, instead of taking off your side panel, put your hand on it and slightly press it. If the noise goes away, then it is the vibrational noise. Either it is from your hard drives or fans, but their vibrating and not the wind noise.

hmmm nothing I think it may be wind noise. These fans aren't even that strong I don't get how they could even create this noise.

Maybe your fans are trying to create a wormhole in your pc? jk.

^^ it is definitely this!

on a more serious note try running either only the rear or only the front fan and see which makes the noise occur.

run only 1 fan at a time if you have to, and make sure to leave the side panel on

It's a simple case of either negative or positive pressure. Basically, you don't have your intake and exhaust CFM's tuned properly to prevent either a reduction or increase in pressure on the inside of your case, which leads to the wompwomp sound you hear and the fan blades buffet air against that pressure.

Try to equalize the incoming air with the outgoing air CFM's.

You get that wompwomp when you crack a window, until you crack the window on the opposite side of the car, same with a PC.
