[BUILT] The Byte Sized PC - Page 3

post #21 of 79
Thread Starter 
Updated OP with more pics!
I'm missing the following:
-Camera
-i3 3225
-DVD ROM drive

With that said, I've got EVERYTHING installed, will run it through P95 on stock to check for stability.
I installed win7 pro with my i7, stock intel cooler, my dvd rom drive and 16GB RAM.
I will be taking 8GB out of the system, putting the i3 and dvd rom when they come in.

I will also be adding the Arctic Pro cooler 7 rev 2 that I didn't realise could fit on socket LGA 1155 from my old PC to this bite sized PC.
I'll also be applying thermal paste MX-2 -> line method.

Going to upload finished rig tomorrow.
I have to say the loudest part of the whole rig is the HDD - it is basically spinning really loudly - and that's down to the fractal case - I have the exact same problem on my R4.
I need to look into those mounts of the HDD...

I know the reason - stupid fractal design (pun intended on design)
The screws that are used to SCREW IN the HDD rack, touch the case cover - meaning when the HDD's spin, they vibrate the screws, and thus vibrate the case, and thus make a HUGE humming noise.

Other than that the case is dead quiet (also because I put the fan profiles to silent) - I currently got the side of the case half opened, as it eliminated the noise. I'll buy some rubber bits and try and sort it out - or try different screwed over the weekend.

Updating OP right now!

oh that would be great!
As for the pads - how do you mean?
As the fractal does come with anti-vibration - but doesn't have it between the screw end and case

Im pretty sure I have pads somewhere that stick onto the case over the HDD mount holes to prevent vibration between the screws and the case. They came with my Lian Li K62 but as my setup isnt really that quiet anyway I didnt bother to use them lol

haha fair enough!

Btw - updated the OP now!
Check out the final pics smile.gif

Things I will change/add:
I won a random drawing of XIGMATEK FCB 120mm fans with blue LED's
So I will install one in the front (possibly replacing the fractal one) and one on the side as an intake/out-take (probably intake)
