That might not work either...you'll push the screw heads out far enough that may interfere with the side panel and you may not be able to close the side panel. I just picked up smaller length screws.

Hi guys,

just read trough the whole thread and didn't encounter complaints about the power button I saw in a couple of video reviews. Was that an early run problem or do you guys have it.

Secondly, i was reading this thread because I just built a new system with the EVGA Hadron Air, but the PSU noise (40mm turbine) is unbearable, even with the headset i hear it, so I will never use it to hook it up to my media center for some TV gaming. I'm now perhaps considering switching to the 250D.
How's the sound level for the 250D? I know it really depends on fans, but as I can easily take a look at your builds here, could you tell me what your impression is under load?

My setup atm: Impact / i5 4670k / EVGA CPU mITX Air cooler / MSI R9 280X Twin Frozr.
Under full load: CPU 60°C GPU 80°C CPU fan 1000rpm Top exhaust 1100rpm GPU fan 45% (rpms are approx since I'm not on the system right now, could be lower)
and I only hear the PSU, rest is quiet/respectable

Opinions much appreciated

Yes my power button has the issue. It's barely noticeable though.

My power button is pretty good, haven't had any of the issues that the viewers reported. I did have an issue with the back of my case needing a slight bend forward to close some of the side panel creases on the right side. The case must of been dropped during shipping or at Microcenter. Other than that its great.

The loudest thing in my case has to be the GPU, other than that I don't really hear anything else. Going to swap out the front 140mm fan with a AF140mm Quiet.

I replaced all the stock fans that came with both the 250 and the H100i with their Quiet Fans...the stock fans were much too loud and were not PWM.

That's exactly what I want to do with mine.

I'm still using the stock H100i fans and those are the loudest thing in my build. I can't hear anything else plus it's right next to me on the desk so I'm pretty close to it.

Those stock fans can be rather annoying and I wouldn't doubt if that stock 140mm isn't louder than my 770ACX which could be making me think it is the 770 that is loud when it might not be. LOL!

I wasnt even aware there was a power button issue smile.gif I did have problems finding it for a whole 20seconds!
I am using stock fans still on my h100i, but will probably change to the quiet version in the near future.

Some people have been getting the SP120 high performance PWM versions. I have ordered some myself, so I will get to test them soon. I think these running at half speed would be rather quiet and still shift a large amount of air. Fingers crossed

IMO it's a very small issue. If I didn't watch those reviews with it, I wouldn't have noticed. It still functions 100% normal.
