ThermalTake Extreme Spirit-II or the Noctua NC-U6? - Page 4

post #31 of 65
the noise from good fans is seldom from their bearings those are already great so no need for oil or anything of the sort... the noise is usually mostly from the turbulence anyway... the fins of the HS in front of it or not enough clearance in front of the fan for the air to be sucked in, that's why some PSUs use a 1 inch gab between their fans and the components...

don't try to silence it... it is basically not "too" loud and you can make itrun at 2000rpm which is IMO just as loud as your TT sounds like now

sorry for sounding dumb, but which one are you refering to?

so, more or less, what i tend to do, on having a Tuniq Tower along with a Noctua Nc U6, does not seem possible physically whatsoever?

If there is some space in front of a fan it will be quieter than it there is stuff right on in and air has to whistle through a tight spot to go through the fan

From what you said it doesn't seem to be possible without some compromise but think of this... people looove their HSF's that blow downward (and all over the case! So maybe you'd be ok blowing right into the PSU so long as your Exhaust fan below the PSU is strong... I would consider doing that and getting the Silverstone but using it for the case's exhaust... just and idea...

Fill in your system...!!! your PSU might be so good that a little warmer air won't do crap to it

System specs filled up!

from this post onwards, i as for now, have System Specs!

i hope this helps, and if i am correct, u would prefer having the fan from the Tuniq tower 120 blowing upwards towards the bottom of the PSU than by the side of the Noctua NC U6? with a fan attached to it even?

I can't know which would be best but I would try to get cold air to the NB as it is instrumental to OC'ing to higher FSB's and with the locked x9 multi I'd be concerned with NB temps first... with proper case airflow you might be good with the TT blowing up into the case then the air would be sucked out through the PSU and the remainder hopefully by a strong 120mm fan...

LOOKED AT YOUR CASE: dude...

_it looks like you can get an 80mm fan maybe bigger on the top of the case with a bit of work... or...

_if the PSU is known to provide stable power at higher temps (look for a review or two) then maybe all you need is a high CMF fan in the back
possibly add a little flap guiding the TT's exhaust towards the back keeping most of it from going up towards the intake of your PSU...

i see then, well look up upon the Seasonic M12 600W, cause i have been recommended it, and i only know abit about it besides its one of the best.

judging on the image u provided, i used it to show how it looks inside.

the arrows show where the air gets blown, which is helped by the stick 120mm fan thats attached inside at the back of the case.

yea so if you abosolutely need to rotate the TT to be able to fit the Noctua + fan on the NB then most of the air would hit the bottom of the PSU possibly even cooling it since the air itself should be colder than the bottom pannel of the PSU and only a bit of it would get around it and getting sucked into the PSU itself but if you did something like this with plastic you might be basically good to go... just and idea...

I just uploaded those pic but dude!!!

hello... heheh you got a 120mm PSU intake in the bottom!!! that changes things

I think if the PSU is rock solid at higher temps then you can forget about this asa problem and just go for it and rotate it

well, as i said, its a Seasonic M12 600W:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151030

btw, i like ur pic anyways, seems that, without the PSU 120mm fan intake at the bottom, the air would bounce off this way and htere as u have illustrated?

and dont forget to see that i have a 120mm fan outtake as what can be seen, but dont know if its a good one though.
