Hey Guys

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Built my PC years ago and got a new urge to silence it and get rid of all the lights that annoy me now. So here I am searching through the forums in search of better silent equipment. My rig is in my sig

Good day!

The best way to go about this is get a "stealth" case. I have went through the same thing as you. I used to have a sound activated clear case PC but it got boring so I went stealth. Now, I have a Bitfenix Shinobi case which is smooth rubberized finish on the outside and blacked out on the inside. I have some green fans for airflow but they are 1000rpm fans with no audiable sound. The case is so black through the grills that the green barely pops. It is a great case that I recommend.

When it comes to stealth/quiet stuff, aim for:
1. Black case with black inside
2. low rpm fans (1000rpm or less)
3. Sound dampening material if in the budget.

Hope I helped!

Welcome to the community sir. thumb.gif
As for silent cooling I would recommend that you should go for water cooling. If you want to go extreme than go for dry ice or liquid nitrogen (if you have the licence to buy some)

Thanks. I think I'm okay with Air cooling at this point but I've always been curious about it just never leaped into it.
