Hi. My Haf Xb is really noisy, any tips how to reduce the noise? And how should I put my fans? 200mm and 2x120mm in front blowing in and 2x 80mm and 120mm behind blowing out?

Replace this stock fans, they are garbage.

Two 120 fronts intake, 80s intake, 120 rear exhaust and drop the 200 in the bin unless using multi gpu setup.

Why 2x80mm as intake, not exaust?

ditto on the garbage stock fans, if your looking for very quiet, try BeQuiet Silent Wing 2 fans for the front, and I think they make the same brand fans in 80mm as well. They are quiet spendy, but very quiet and very good. Otherwise Gelid Silent 12, Cougar Vortex, or Corsair AF120 are all good fans, fairly quiet and quiet a bit cheaper then the BeQuiet ones. Oh and the DeepCool UF120 also known as Alpenföhn WingBoost in Europe are also very good but again on the high side for price.

This case can be kind of hard for ppl who are very sensitive to noise from their rig, especially if it sits very close the them like on the desktop like mine does. All the grills and perforations in the case make it very easy to hear the fans pumps, etc....

Haha my evening has yet arrive, but ill be sure to take some video for you with fps on the hud at stock and 4.0

Before I modded a side panel fan as intake, I used the 2.80mm as intake as well because that was most effective in keeping my hdd cool. If I had them exhausting, I doubt there would be much airflow through the hdd cage and instead pull air through the vents that run along the bottom of the case. I think the most functional use of those 80mm mounts would be for a dual 80mm rad.

Thanks for the tips guys, really appreciate it smile.gif. So better upgrade the stock fans. Greetings from Finland!

@VAMET

Hey there! Just a little update for you... I played some bf4 single player tonight and got some footage running at 3.4 stock, and 4.0 oc'd. This is my first time recording benchmarking so I only got a couple sections of gameplay that line up pretty decent for comparing frame rates. Also my first time doing some video editing so putting this all together for you is kinda rewarding for me in a way, and fun!

Anyway the video isnt done yet, but its too late for me to finish tonight. But this kinda what ive discovered so far only by using ingame fps overlay recorded with shadowplay.

I5 3570k+gtx 660 Ultra @ 1680x1050
Compared to 3.4ghz, 4.0ghz oc shows an avg gain of 2-5 fps and less often gains of 5+ fps. I saw frames go as low as 27 and high as 68, but you can watch for yourself when I post the video (might need help with that haha). I can tell you honestly while playing I didnt notice a difference.

I know I dont have the greatest video card nor a very high resolution but I do with what I got lol. I generally only play online with ultra setting no antialiasing, and get considerably higher framerates (60-70) EDIT: Forgot to mention these frames are running at 4.5ghz

In an attempt to keep positive air pressure in this case. I have the 80s installed in my case but don't have them switched on ever because I find they make very little difference anyway. If someone has a rack of 2.5 mechanical drives they will need them as intakes then.

Hey guys, I have received my uv cables and stuff. I made an unboxing video which I will link everyone too when it's complete.

I do have a question... does anyone know of a really nice looking on/off switch? Preferably one already wired for a molex 4 pin? My UV led strips and cold cathode tubes all run off of a molex connection and currently stay on 100% of the time so I really want an on/off switch.

Thanx guys,
Justified
