help with silverstone ft02b with window- want it to be more silent - Page 2

post #11 of 38
The stock Coolermaster Blade Master fans are kind of loud at full speed (2000 rpm). Try setting the CPU fans to run slower at idle and ramp up speed on load.

To make it quieter, you need your fans spinning slower than 2000RPM. Probably around 1300RPM would be a good start, though those who really value "quiet" usually aim for 800RPM. RPM = noise, and you need to balance that with temperatures. Though, from what I can tell your temperatures are super low already. IDK what your aim is, but a colder CPU doesn't magically make it run any better or be any more reliable.

actually that depends on the size if the fan. 800RPM may be silent on a 120mm fan, but on a 180mm it's still noticeable. for a 180mm fan 600RPM is the target number to aim for as far as quiet operation. at 600rpm it is still audible, but can easily ignored.

Yeah, mine spin roughly 800-810 @ 60% from my fan controller. Still audible, but it's not a horrid fan noise like with smaller fans, and still not intrusive at all, and if I open the window that instantly over powers my case noise anytime, lol.

I have this exact case, and I wanted silence too

get a Baybus (fan controller) it will change your life
Mine is a Zalman ZM MFC1-Plus.
It has room for 6 fans , maximum 6 or 7 Watts each. the 18cm fans from the bottom are 5,5 Watts, so it's good smile.gif


I have 2 x passive 6850 's in crossfire too

if you are affraid abouts the temps
after 30 min of OCCT GPU+CPU (much more stressfull than a game)
CPU : around 60C
GPUs : around 90C

I could probably drop the temperature of the gpus in full charge by adding a 120 Mn on their side, and/or make the others fan turn faster, but in real use in games the cards barely reaches 70C, so it's good for me


So, it is silent ? well the noiser stuff inside are my HDD's (spinpoint F1's 1TB x2), so yeah it's pretty silent smile.gif

here are some pics

that's a beautiful build:) i've always wondered how well the powercolor cards works in the FT02 and now you have provided good data:) i was wondering, have you tried running a single card instead of xfire? just wondering how it would do if it's not being baked back to back:D also is the 90C on both card? or is there a difference between the primary and the slave card?
post #18 of 38
AHah ok I can resist now to run OCCT again.

Honestly, i don't remember the numbers for a single card.
I will do the tests for with 2 cards and post the results.

Also note that the baybus make the fans turn slower than stock.

My baybus LEDs are blue when using lower voltages, and turn red when using high voltages. I believe the switch is around 7V
I keep everything in the blue area, so probably just below 7V

so basically i really do just need to get a fan controller for my cpu fan and manually adjust it? i think im going to buy one today then. anyone have suggestions?

ive ran my cpu in intel burn test and it was stable at i think 71 c, so with games it should never reach that high right?

if i were to buy a fan controller, should i also switch out the fans on my hyper 212 with quieter ones, could anyone also point me to a good quiet 120 mm fan for my hyper 212

Any fan controller will work, just depends on your preference and price range. I personally love my Lamptron FC Touch, but $70 may be a bit steep for the average user. I also have used Zalman MFC1's with my last TJ07 build which I loved, which are about $40. There's also plenty others in the $15-30 range that'll do just fine, but probably won't be aluminium, again personal preference there.

As for quieter fans, Gentle Typhoon AP-15's aren't too bad, pretty quiet and move plenty of air. I've also used Noctua's and Cougar's which are also nice and quiet, even at higher RPM's.
