Hey guys i'm planning a build and would love it if you guys helped me make it quite and give me some tips on how I can do it. As for the case it is going to be a TJ08-E, I hear a lot on how it had a loud fan in the front but I will not be using the fan controller that came with it im going to use my mobo bios. What else in this build is there to do to make it quieter. Sorry guys my screen shot software it not working so if you will check out the build on pcpartpicker and look at the summer build I will be thankful. Also if there is anything im missing in the build let me know please. Last question guys would you get a gpu right away or wait first build sorry guys.

Those noctua fans and any fan controller should do the job.

Not sure why you don't want to use a fan controller, I got a 2 12v to 7v fan adapters recently and they worked great, only problem was they are 3 pin, and that gets rid of PWM which is important for silence, but in my situation it worked out better.


If you want to control the fans right off the bios make sure the bios has really good fan control, my msi board doesn't thats why I got adapters. It doesn't let you set the chassis fans below 50% which was problematic.

Oh I see I will research the fan control of this mobo and see what I get till then thanks

the AP181 that comes with the TJ08 should be quiet enough at 500RPM. you can still hear it, but it's quiet enough that it's easily ignored. you mobo header should be able to handle the AP181 since it's not really that high of a wattage fan.

Noctua fans with the ULN tag are quieter (Ultra Low Noise) its a little pigtail adapter that drops the fan even slower. I can't hear mine at all. Seasonic makes a 460 watt fanless and I do own one but it must be mounted at the bottom of the case for proper cooling or it will eat itself. Its totally silent but check your i7 needs against it first. I have the same CPU cooler and it's almost inaudible. Check that case carefully, you might not have the clearance for the Noctua cooler. I used the Bitfenix Raider case and it's perfect. I did replace the fans though...well actually I just installed more Noctua NF-S12B ULN 120mm Fans and run them all on low. I have to look at the case light to see if it's on. zero noise. No heat and later when I want to try overclocking I can just turn them up if I need to.

Here, I used that site you used to build up mine.

http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/user/TickMagnet/saved/#savedbuild_327445

They don't list the Noctua S12B 12mm ULN fans but they are $20 I replaced the fan at the back of the Raider case. The site says my memory isn't compatible but it is...I've run it over a year like this.

All together it would cost me about a grand today to build.

Translation: lower RPM = quieter. Who would have thought... rolleyes.gif

Why does everyone automatically assume that they have to replace a fan to make it quiet? Even the Noctua ULN fans can be noisy if spinning at a higher RPM (overvolting fans anyone biggrin.gif ). A lot of fan noise comes from the RPM (vibrations and whine noise), and to a lesser degree the actual airflow (the whoosh noise).
