At last I came to conclusion; any fan that is mounted on rear 120mm makes distinct vibration noise. 100% sure it's the case issue because I tried every single fan individually with different fan pins(both CPU and CHA).

I've tried Silvrstone stock fan, Noctua F12, and Cougar Vortex. None of them were defective but made vibration noise when mounted on rear.

Does anyone have similar issue?

I don't hear any vibration from my rear 120mm. The most noise I get is from the 180mm straining to get air through the top filter.

As for temps, all with the 180mm on high but controlled by MB fan headers and the rest of the case fans around 50% on load, 20% on idle

CPU load (100% CPU)
CPU = 60-65 C

Gaming load temps (GPU @ 99% usage and CPU around 50%)
GPU = 69 C (GTX 460 @ 750)
CPU = 50-55 C (3570k @ 4.1) (one core is hotter than the rest)

Idle: (180mm fan on low)
GPU = 40 C
CPU = 35-40 C

So for those people turning the top fans to exhaust, I see most of you have non reference gpus. If you have a reference card, should you reverse the top fan?

my reference 560TI idles around 29C. When I stress it, temps go into the 70s. But this card in general is one that's known to get hot under load and the tdp is also pretty high. I have the 180mm, 120mm and 80mm fans all pulling cooler outside air into my case and only the 120mm fan on my CPU cooler exhausting all that air out.

In my experience the only thing that will keep gpus cool is putting them under water. Air cooling, again in my experience--no matter how good, will only net you a few degrees cooler. Reference cooling is always going to have higher temps and noise compared air cooling solutions by other card manufacturers.

Also because of the form factor of this case, you're going to have slightly higher temps all around, so flipping the 180mm fan may only get you lower temps by a few degrees. Personally, I'd rather the 180mm fan push cooler outside air into my case and over the components rather than suck out all the heat generated from the other components through the top (e.g., CPU, GPU, VRMs, NB/SB). The 120mm fan on my ZALMAN LQ310 does a really good job at pulling all the air out and my CPU under load levels off at 42C.

But whatever configuration do end up going with let us know. thumb.gif

I disagree completely. All of my cards use air coolers and I get 10-20c less than reference coolers, with zero noise. I mostly use Arctic Coolers but have just put a Prolimatech MK-26 on my Titan with two Noctua P12 PWM fans and it has dropped close to 20c and is absolutely silent.

I see how my statement is misleading, I should clarify to and say I meant in context of non-reference designs offered by GPU manufacturers (e.g., twin frozer, windforce, etc.) you're not going to get "ridiculously" lower temps over reference designs, third party design, no-doubt you can get those temps drops like you noted.

But I think Acappella's was asking mainly about fan orientation, specifically the top fans and does it make any difference whether you use it as an intake or exhaust it improve GPU temps with reference designs. My response to Acapella is not really, the fan orientation won't net any huge temp improvements for GPUs with reference coolers especially in an SFF case where airflow restricted by amount of air that can move through the case.

Hi Guys ,I decided to hold out for the SG10 because many people say online that the SG09 has an ugly front grill.Since some of you actually own the SG09 ,I would like your opinion on the case aesthetic; is it really that ugly?

I have one and don't mind the look of the front. That being said however, it looks like the front grill assembly is going to have to get washed, since the slats make it impossible to get a vacuum cleaner in there to vacuum out the dust, and the filter can't be removed (easily anyway)

I've got a reference 4870X2, and my top fan is set to intake, partly because it cools my CPU heatsink, and it also cools the 4870X2's backplate (which can get hot enough to burn you, because of its hot running memory chips on the back of the card.)

Does anyone know how I can control chassis fan speeds based on GPU temp rather than CPU temp? Would be quite useful for us SG09 users since chassis fans are more concerned about airflow around GPU. I'm using Rampage IV Gene mobo.

Speedfan should do the trick.
