any tips to silencing my cm 690 adv

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi, I want to make my PC as silent as possible but still maintain good temperature, and this what I think



rear fan and top fan that came with the case is really loud, and I want to change it with Enermax TB Silence 12 and 14cm, my question is... it is ok to use this fan with frio still do push/pull configuration @ 1300 rpm, whether this would make my fan wear out faster? I'm planning to change frio with Hyper 212 evo or Hyper 612 PWM when they become available in my place soon, it is more quiet and more than enough based from my spec

for bottom fan, what would you suggest, Enermax TB silence 12 or 14 cm for better result?

I also thought to change front fan to enermax TB silence 14 cm too for a complete silent system, what do you think?

Why I'm only used Enermax TB silence on my rig? because this is the quietest fan I can get with affordable price in my place($7 and $9), the other fan is simply overpriced ($10++)

a fan controller is also a great noise reducer. It allows you to fine tune your fans to get an optimal noise/performance ratio

Best120mm fan you can get: http://www.quietpc.com/ca-en-cad/pro...ns/gt-120-1850
Please note, my link is Canadian. You can switch it at the top right drop down country listing.

There might be other site has the same fan costs less.

I often hear people talk about this fan and claim this is the best fan for 120mm

for rear fan, is this fan a wise choice for me both performance and noise? (1850 / 28 dba compare with enermax 900 / 11 dba)

Gentle Typhoon sold in my country for $22 (ouchh, 3 times price of enermax)

this is the only site that lists Enermax CFM, I don't know if this only marketing gimmick or not >>> link

Honestly, some quality fans and a fan controller make a world of a difference.

I have 9 S-Flex F fans in my case, hooked to a fan controller. When I want silence I turn things down. Even turned all the way down I still get great temps and the computer is pretty much dead silent.

Cooler Master has some nice, basic, quiet fans too if the S-Flex ones are a bit expensive. The main thing I would suggest is just getting a fan controller.

I bought some Dynamat for my case too, but never ended up installing it on the 690 II because of how quiet it was already.
