greets

I have 3 sp120 pwm quiet editions in the front and 2 on my h100i in the top with a af140 quiet in the back and it is honestly very quiet. Even when the fans ramp up to 60%+ it is very tolerable, for me anyways.


Also, I just about finished up my 540 build earlier today. Including a crappy phone pic for now because I've been too busy enjoying it to take a proper one. rolleyes.gif

My 540 is dead silent, albeit my fans are all on low. The 3.5" HDD mounts are the weak point for vibrations. I don't have anything mounted in those. My 3.5" HDD is mounted to the roof of the PSU compartment side above the optical bays. I have 3 SP120 PWM High Perf and 3 AF140 Quiets.

I have a 280mm radiator up top. I just had to redrill mounting holes and the radiator mounted perfect. "Problems" only occur if you're unwilling to modify what you have to fit what you want.

the idea with the static pressure ones Sounds nice!

higher pressure because of the düst filter makes sense, but are they quiter with the same performance for chassie-fans?

Still looking for a user who replaced the stock front and rear fan, with custom frown.gif

Please let me know how much temp drow you saw, and if you had before and after, with delta temps will be amazing, thank you.

I'm still waiting on my stuff to come in. Had to RMA my motherboard, new one will be here tomorrow. Hopefully I'll be ready to go then.

I have h110 up top, installed it before motherboard. very easy. My hoses come down from the front of the case not the back. I saw it would hit my 140mm rear fan if I installed the hoses in the rear.

hi guys,

Im new to corsair world and wondered if I could join you fine ladies and gentlemen.
I took ownership of my 540 just before xmas and not had anytime to do anything to it but at the sametime ive been thinking of what to do and how I can make mine stand out.

You all have some wonderful ideas and I hope I will have some too, maybe even use some of your concepts as I go alone.

Ive added a few pictures for you take a good look at.

Hope I can join the corsair club and share knowledge and rule the modding world.
