Woah woah. Crap? no.

If you want a crap SSD look no further than the Crucial V4! worst ssd I think you can buy. The 750 EVO is a pretty decent ssd. Not as good as some PNY ssd's or OCZ ssd's but still pretty good.

So I've decided to finally retire my OG Phantom.

Anyone think there might be a fit issue with the MSI GTX Gaming X 1080 in the H440? I can't imagine there would be but I figured I would check

you'll be fine, just take a couple drive bays out and you're good to go

Got my H440 (rev.2, mat black, without window) yesterday and so far I am disappointed. From good things, I can say that build quality is very good and it is extremely easy to build in this case, but thats it. Sound dumping is not only complete gimmick but also increases noise of my fans. It creates some kind of strange hum that disappears after removing left side panel. I can't hear my PC with side panel removed, but once it is on, is sounds a bit like a AIO pump on high speed (I don't have AIO there, only air cooler that is quiet as fcuk), or simply like some humming box. I got this case because I looked for quiet case, I also liked how it looks in interior, how easy it is to build in it and how many options it gives, but main reason was silence and there is no silence at all. Fans that came with it are also really poor, they are no different from ~15 ZL (polish currency) fans and standalone versions of those NZXT fans are like 60 ZL. I changes them to 30 ZL ones from Silentum PC and they are way better, but still not too good.

This is really disappointing, I came from budget Silentum PC Gladius M40 case (200 ZL compared to 500 for H440, 660 for window version) and there is no significant improvement other than better build quality, easier building and managing cables, more space and higher CPU coolers possible to mount. But main feature I looked for, silence, is completely not there, case is increasing system noise instead of decreasing and default fans are just of cheapest of the cheapest quality if it comes to sound, rattling a lot even of min speeds.

Are you getting humming or rattling from the case or is it the fans?

Fans are poor, but I replaced them with better ones. This is not a huge problem. Problem is, like I said, that my PC is just super silent with side panel removed, but it gets loud after putting side panel back on. It sounds like water pump closed in a box biggrin.gif I checked if panel is okay, fitting well, and not touching anything that could cause vibrations. Fans are also okay, mounted with screws but also with rubber pads, so this is not a problem with fans, especially if PC is completely silent with side panel removed. I guess that completely closed design of H440 is not the best solution, it looks like it causing some kind of sound tunnel, like when you drive your car into a tunnel.

This shouldnt be happening. To myself it sounds like something is either loose or not fully secured down. Having built in the H440 for the last 2 years, The only time something like this came up was what is what I discribed. Can you make sure everything is correctly tied down and in place for me? If that doesnt work, than I can replace the case for you.

I already tried to look for source of this sound but there doesn't seem to be any specific source. Everything is in place, drive cages removed from case, no HDDs there, 2x140mm fan on the front, one 140 at the back and one 140 on top on the furthest slot to the back (all of them are Silentium PC Sigma Pro 3-pin with max of 800 rpm, also running at lowest speeds, probably around 300 rpm). There is currently only CPU cooler operating inside (Silentium PC Fortis 3 158mm with one 140mm fan at lowest speed) because I sold my GPU. SSDs are mounted on two brackets below motherboard. Side panel is not touching anything that could case vibrations, case is not vibrating if I touch it so there is no issue here. PC is silent without side panel so it is hard to say why PC sound is acting like this while side panel is on, this is just side panel, not touching any of components and it shouldn't affect them. Only thing that comes to my mind is this sound tunnel alike effect I already described.

Anyway, I already ordered different case with similar silence focused features, I will get it on Tuesday and install all of my components in it and see if this strange sound effect is also occurring in case with different build and from different brand, and also I will have direct comparison for few things with those two rivals cases (H440 vs Define R5) and then I will decide what to do next and what better suits me, and if this issue is fault of case or my components are causing this somehow. Thanks for answers and support.
