Silent Cooling Recommendation

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
There are fans that my computer. (in Vento Tak51)
1. 80mm Exhaust Fan,
2. Intel Core i5 3330 's stock CPU Fan,
3. Nvidia GeForce GT 630 's stock GPU Fan, And I'm very uncomfortable from the sounds coming from the chassis.

Although 40% of the work brings the most sound GPU fan. Then, although I can not control the operation of the 4-pin CPU fan speed it is coming. And there is relatively quiet exhaust fan in last among others. You quieter fans instead of the above advice without noisy fans you would ask.

My question is what are you looking to do? just lower the overall sound of the system? Generally i'd say download Speed Fan and control your cpu fan that way and use something like msi afterburner to work on your gpu temps. Outside of that you could just upgrade the cpu cooler to something like a evo 212 or cryorig h7 or something of that caliber to better both your temps and have lower sound output, gpu would be a upgrade imo, most new cards have silent modes and aftermarket coolers that just do amazing jobs at staying quiet, my 2 evga 960's are silent even under full load i love it. As for that 80mm exhaust, thats a tough one, 80mm will almost always be loud if you want to actually move a decent amount of air, i say just use speedfan to control it too. hope this helps. any questions feel free to ask.

I'd just go for water cooling on your CPU or just upgrading your stock cooler to an aftermarket cooler. And maybe water cool your GPU if you're courageous tongue.gif

When was the last time your system had a good cleaning? I mean removing the fan from CPU and cleaning the cooler so there is not dust or lint in it .. and doing the same to GPU cooler.

While I know this may sound harsh, but your present system is ever going to be very quiet. To have a quiet system you need a better case with 120mm or 140mm fans, better CPU cooler and probably a better cooler on your GPU.
The case you have now is simply not designed to flow enough air to cool quietly
Stock CPU coolers are known to be quite noisy
Many stock GPU coolers are known to be quite noisy.

Only someone having identity ten tea issues would suggest putting water cooling on what you now have. doh.gif CLCs are poor coolers that make lots of noise and cost way more than similar cooling level and much lower noise level air coolers.

We really need to know where on Earth you are, how much you can afford to spend and what online places you might buy from.

Maybe he will think the sound of the water is pleasing! Lol it's better than hearing the blades of a fan spinning 3000rpm violently cutting through the air IMO.

You just can't seem to stop wiht the identity ten tea mentality. rolleyes.gif
A mid-level air cooler is quieter than a CLC
Both air coolers and CLC use fans
I do not know of any air coolers having 3000rpm 120m or 140mm fans

TRYING to understand the broken English used here so forgive me if i misunderstand what the OP is saying. so i'm just going to speculate on what it is we are trying to give advise on.

a quick google indicates the chassis is this? is this correct?

https://www.asus.com/Chassis/TAK5/

if it is correct, then these are the supported venting options

System Fan (mm) Support
Front: 120/92/80 mm x 1
Rear: 120/92/80 mm x 1

the OP has at "maximum" a 120mm front intake and 120mm rear exhaust.

here is a pic of the rear exhaust option



here is the dimensions of the chassis

Dimension w/Bezel (W x H x D)
180 (W) x 408 (H) x 430 (D) mm

we can safely conclude that the supported HSF height is at or less the 160mm

with these facts, we are forced to agree with doyll's analysis of needing a new chassis if the goal is going to be anywhere near "quiet" since there is simply not enough intake fan area for "quiet" operations

the OP also indicated the primary suspect for offending noise level originates from the GPU. here is a pic of the GPU in question (brand is not indicated so i just grabbed a random pic from google, but since it's a budget GPU, most of the cooling solution are not going to be significantly better then this pic)



there isn't going to be anything significant we can recommend here since ANY solution on the market is likely going to cost more then what the GPU is worth at this point smile.gif

so... we are left with the giant question that everyone is avoiding up to now.... just how much is the OP willing to invest in his current system or is he going to be better off saving up for a new build?

the best recommendation right now is a gradual upgrade path which may have little to do with the stated goal of this post but he will eventually upgrade to the point that the system becomes quiet. i would definitely start with a new chassis which will allow him to fit larger HSF and PSU. then the path of going quiet is at least open.

the alternative path is of course the investment in a dremel biggrin.gif but i'm not sure how comfortable the OP is with THAT idea biggrin.gif
