Antec 900 too loud. - Page 2

post #11 of 23
Dude, I sleep a few feet from my Antec 900 every night. The fans are pretty quiet already. Good luck finding something even quieter (without overheating).

Yeah, as mentioned above, it could be CPU or GPU fan instead, especially if you're folding or something. I've got SMP + GPU2 running 24/7, so my CPU and GPU fan get a little louder than the case fans for me, but not much. If my computer were idle, it would be completely silent, but instead there's a small amount of noise from the system fans.

Well, you can always go pick up a celeron and underclock it and then run fanless

ya the antec 900 isnt really loud my duel pvr hd box when its turned off is louder i leave my computer on ( all fans are on the highest speed 2 gpu fan @ 50% ) because if its off the buzzing sound from the pvr hd drives me insane.
im not sure unless u disable some of the fans you will be able to find ones that are not as loud

I would pick up a new CPU cooler if you have the money. Possibly a Tuniq or a True or one of the new brands that I cant remember.

Or the Xigmatek HDT-S1283. It's the current best bang for the buck cooler. It competes with the other top two coolers.

I replaced the stock fans in my 900 with three AeroCool Turbines. All three together are quieter than one stock fan.
