nice job, I haven't looked into my case noises yet but all this talk is making me want to. I have creaks on the front face, top, and a little from the metal case perhaps, not sure. I did do some light mods to filter the air better coming in the front by blocking the hole in the bottom and adding a stocking material to the front face. Maybe I'll do some noise reduction tests. Does your case creak when you push on the top front corners or anywhere else??? If not I'm shocked, I'd be tempted to upload a video..

Yeah more lube.

Just kidding, but on the serious side I suppose you could try all sorts of things, perhaps even some discreet scotch tape applied on surfaces that cause the creaking, like MrDinoX pointed out. Every case will be a little different, mine seems to creak in a lot of places so I probably will never bother, but you could remove parts and listen for sounds, and then address the surfaces causing the noise one by one.

Seems like you could isolate the worst spots and change the tolerances with something like tape, and you'd be fine. smile.gif I'm curious if some light sanding with very fine grit sandpaper or even a simple hot soapy bath with the plastic parts could alleviate some noise. Perhaps mold release is making the surfaces more sticky and thus more noisy.

Lol i was waiting for someone to say the first part tongue.gif

And whenever a bit of pressure is applied to the plastic parts only, sometimes it creaks a little bit without even being touched.
It doesn't bother me that much, but do you actually reckon soaking the plastic panels in hot water could fix it?

Got me some watercooling now.



And some new dust filters (the old ones sucked)





Made a Hole in the PSU cover for the GPU Cables


Also painted the Chassi details in Glossy White



Got two identical NZXT 140mm fans for the top (had too look symmetric)


Water cooling in place





So what the case currently looks like.. Ill be getting some more parts next week.







P.S Also installed some Revoltec Cold Cathodes....

which dust filter are those and do they really help? Did you put on over each fan vent?

hi guys!

i currently have an h100i set up at the top exhaust, with the radiator above the case and the stock fans inside, pushing air out.

i was wondering if adding slim fans on top as "pull" fans would help with the cooling / airflow? i'm thinking of adding these fans because these are the ones locally available:
Scythe Kaze Jyuni Slim, 120mm, 1200rpm, 24CFM

the h100i stock fan specs are:
2700 RPM, 74.42 CFM.

would it help out with the airflow? or be more of an obstruction because of the lower CFM than the push fans?

Yup, if you want to help the temp, the push fan will need to be the higher CFM/air pressure fan then the pull fan.


Maybe just replace the noisier stock fan with a better fan like the SP120's or noctua?

With my h100i rad on the top of the case (outside you could say) I cant fit another fan on top.

Are there fans that will allow the panel to be placed on top with the rad as well?
My RAM is too high profile to fit the fans AND the rad in the case and put fans on the outside..

Any recommendations on being able to do push pull with high profile memory in this case?


Thanks.
