Quiet 120MM CPU fan - Page 2

post #11 of 16
I would say dual fan GPU's are very quiet at idle but you think the i30 is loud, quiet is subjective smile.gif. Have you thought about moving to a silent case like the Fractal design R4 or Nanoxia Deep silence? If quiet is the thing that is most important to you then that's what would benefit you most I think.

Thought of 2 more problems.

1. What is the cumulative noise that a computer produces? Do they add on top of each other or does the loudest component decide how loud the system is?
2.

The "faint wooshing" you may not be the fan. Air air moves it makes noise. The sound could be air moving through case grills, or air pasting around HDD cage, cabling, etc.

Do you know if this factor is within human control? How should the parts be organized to minimize the air friction sounds?

My sig system is silent from 2 meters away. Even at a meter I can't hear it unless it's working above 70% load. Have you reg the link in my sig? You might find that helpful.

The noise levels in the pc is like an average of all noises. Here is a noise calculator

Thanks.

I just noticed that the fans of my video card are stuck at 1380 rpm even at idle, is the controller broken? I believe it should be adjustable according to the profiles you set, but apparently there is a bottom limit here.
