Quietening the PC

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I know ill never achieve silence with the PC the kit produces to much heat but i can at least try to make it a bit quieter.

Kit wise i have the following

Case Lancool K62B with side window

AMD Phenom X4 960BE - unlocked to six cores running between 920Mhz and 3.6Ghz on C&Q
Cooler Titan Fenrir Evo with original fan
ASUS HD 6950 DCUII
Corair HX750
Samgsung F3 in a Sythe Himuro only spins up when needed
SSD for OS and core apps

Case fans
3X Lian Li L1214 fans (14cm)
1 Bit Fenix spectre (14cm)
1 Enermax cluster twister fan (12cm)

All case fans run from a phoya FanMax which as default is set as low as possible
The Bit Fenix fan has an annoying tick so i want rid as it does get on my nerves. I know ill never get a huge drop in noise as its quite an open case on the front and roof with a great big side window but can anyone suggest ways to reduce the noise?

Ive done the usual poke the fan to stop it and found the loudest parts in my PC are the graphics (despite its huge apparently "silent" cooler)

Can anyone recommend some options on
A GPU Cooling
B quieter case fans

Any advice would be great

are you talking about quieting idle or in games? what are your idle temps now on cpu and video card
set custom fan profile on the 6950. if you havent done this it's probably running them higher than necessary.
just remove the bitfenix fan for now. i cant stand clicking either

Sorry should have said idle or near idle ie films music and browsing.

Temps ive got 35c on the GPU and 30c on the CPU so pretty cool by all accounts

Ive played with the ASUS smart doctor and MSI Kombuster but the lowest i can set it to is 10% I have a sneaky suspicion its actually the fans and cooler resonating as the graphics card literally just fits its touching the front of the 5.25 cage.

Ill have a look i think it was through an Etailer so i can RMA it that way

I've tried a zillion cooling layouts in that case. Too many. Below is the result of my experience, for what its worth.

Front intake: Sharkoon Silent Eagle 140mm, Yate Loon D14SL-12, or Thermalright X-Silent 140. These are the best 140s I've used for that case, and I've tried many. The Sharkoon was a pleasant surprise and the best of them, imo. The Yate is nice as well, and the cheapest. Set front at 800-ish rpm, which is stock speed for the Sharkoon/X-silent, and a couple hundred RPM slowed for the Yate. The stock Lian Li fans are actually pretty good, but not so quiet.

Top Exhaust, slot closest to front of case: Sharkoon SE 140 or Yate Loon. The Eagle seems to slightly outperform the TR in both airflow and acoustics, and oddly despite the Eagle and Yate being sleeve bearing and the TR being fluid, they seem more stable when horizontal (no clicking). Set top exhaust to low rpm, and mount it from below (suspended). You should only need one top exhaust. That rear/top one won't be doing much that the rear 120mm isn't already doing.

Rear 120mm: Scythe Slipstream, Nexus Basic, Noctua NF-P12, Noiseblocker (various models). Any one of those at 700-800rpm is low noise and good airflow, all close enough that you can basically pick one based on aesthetics. The Noctua and Noiseblocker Multiframe are probably the best cfm/noise of those, but pricey, and you don't need real high performance in that slot. My personal best-in-slot preference is the NF-P12 at 700rpm.

GPU: All stock cooling sucks (if not in cooling, in noise), even the fancy ones, as you have discovered. It hurts to spend a chunk of money on an aftermarket cooler but if you want to cut the noise, I'd get an Accelero Twin Turbo or something similar, per your budget. Personally I have the Twin Turbo with the fan unit removed and two Slipstreams mounted to it running at a constant 800rpm, which is both quieter and better cooling (but the Accelero is still pretty quiet out of the box). That's tough to recommend, though, since it scraps half the cooler and adds even more cost. Honestly the aftermarket cooler (or modded stock one) is gonna be the keystone here, and what will allow you to tame the case fans without a loss in cooling.

Your temps are pretty good. I should say one option, if you can do it, is remove the stock fan shroud from the GPU and strap a couple cheap 120mm fans to it instead running at lowish rpm, steady. Not sure how that stock cooler will allow for that, though.

Thats brilliant Otterclock,

Think ill have a look get a pair of those Sharkoons they sound just the job. GPU wise its a bit of a pain the GPU looks like the shroud has the fans attached via a metal bar its been taken apart here

398

I did play with modding an aftermarket cooler on my 460GTX before it got bored and killed its self (not heat related)

This is a Gelid Icey Vision 2 with a pair of enermax fans strapped on

100_1671-w640-h480-1.jpg

(sorry for the blood bottom right i cut myself doing it with a rather sharp knife)

Apparently the cooler can take the 6950 & 6970 my card sits between the two so may well give it a go. When this was on the GTX it was totally silent its two 90mm fans clipped on using fan mount clips. If not i can see how i can mount some 120mm fans or similar on the current cooler

I have those Enermax in 120mm. Pretty nice fans; gotta be careful with the intake side being rather magnetic. 92mm are easier to mount. On my accelero the 120s fit with just a slight amount of overhang. It was a pain getting them on there in such a way that it didnt look like crap. I used zipties and some of the leftover rubber hdd grommets that came with the Lian Li to dampen the fans from the cooler fins.

The slipstreams worked out well. No fan profiles. No pwm. Just steady 800 rpm all the time and the only way to get the card to hit 60c is with Furmark. In retrospect I should have just gotten a cheaper cooler that had a decent heatsink or just used the stock sink that came with the Sapphire, but I didn't plan on doing the fan swap when I first bought the Accelero.

Loaned someone my camera, so these are taken with the worst cell phone cam ever.

below is a top down view of the Sharkoon; my only exhaust. I'm trying out reverse airflow, with the Noc P12 blowing onto the Venomous, then an F12 pulling and all up into the Sharkoon running at like 725 rpm. Figured since Im taking pics I may as well take more.

Scrap that the shamans now discontinued and rarer than golden rocking horse poo.

This fits the card... not sure about in my case though, can take two 140mm fans!
