Silent Watercooled Corsair 650D

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
My Corsair 650D, not dead silent...but pretty close

Any silencing tips for the future would be greatly appreciated!

XSPC 750 Dual Rad Pump (7v mod - much quieter!)
XSPC Rasa RS240 Rad (1150 RPM Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-14) [Pull]
EK CoolStream XTC 140mm Rad (Fractal Design Silent Series 140MM Ultra Quiet) [Pull]
Stock Corsair Exhaust 120mm Fan (5v mod)

EK-Supreme HF Performance- Full Copper Rev 3.0 CPU Block
EK-FC470 GTX Reference Design GPU Block- Acetal (Copper)

XSPC 7/16" ID 5/8" OD Black High Flex Tube
250mm KillCoil - Coiled up and placed in Resevoir across from pump intake
Random sound dampening pads here and there

i7 2600K @ 4.8GHz (1.44v)
Idle 37c (Ambient 25c) - Loads 64c (Prime95) - Load 74c (IBT)

EVGA 470GTX @ 825MHz (1150mv)
Idle 39c - Load 51c

Regret #1: 650D way too small for awesome watercooling...should've went with the 800D.
Regret #2: Should've put the Phyoba 200mm Rad up front instead of the 140mm

A fan controller. Then you can control how fast the fans spin, therefore control the noise.

Nice build!

Yeah fan controller will help you a lot. You can also see if that front 200mm fans isn't a cause of air turbulance also and cut out the grill.

Hehe, no 200mm fan there! Had to make room for the 140mm Rad

Few more pics

Upgraded to Rasa's RS240 from the Corsair H80...must say wasn't a huge difference, maybe 4 or 5 degrees better.

If any Canadian are looking for a good place to buy parts, DazMode has a lot of good stuff, fast shipping too!

Well the grill for the 200mm fan it still there. If you cut it out you may or may not see a diffrence. But it might be worth a try.

PS. I'm in your neighboring province... =P

True...my goal was to get this done without any hardcore case modding though The bottom of the case is actually empty...Could fit a 240mm rad there horizontally, but again...would have to cut the case for exhaust holes

Ahhh and yes, I'm using the built in Corsair fan controller, lowest speed is VERY quiet...but I'm worried about performace at that level
post #7 of 12
About the only way to make it quieter would be removal of fan grills(helps more then you would think), and maybe push/pull on rads and lower fan speed as much as you can.

If you ever upgrade you could go w/ a 2x140mm radiator up top. They are pretty similar in terms of surface area as a 3x120mm radiator. I am going to be using a Magicool slim 2x140 in my 650D.

Dammit you're right, a 2x140 could fit up there, and I should've put the 200x200 up front, oh well...impatience got me
