I've asked this numerous times, but has anyone had any issue with noisy HDDs in this case? When I started Vista the HDDs went completely nuts and were making all kinds of noise. In my Antec P182, however, I cannot hear them because of the rubber isolation mounting system.

As soon as NewEgg credits my account back for the Antec 1200, I think I'm going to order another one and a Velociraptor.
I just built a gaming PC rig out of the Antec 900v2, and my buddy just used the antec 900v3 for his build, my friend used the EXACT same componets i did for his build, and my brother inlaw uses the Antec 1200 with a WD 1tb black. (me and my frined used the 7200RPM samsun spinpoint 1tb). I have NEVER heard a hard drive over the case fans, not to say that the case fans are loud(1 box fan is twice as loud as my conputer with ALL fans on 100%) sounds as if you had a defective case, or maby used the wrong screws/ didnt tighten them enough causing the rattle. also with the case comes some little round felt washers you can use the quite HDD or optical drive rattle aginst the case. hope this helps

How did you wrap the carbon on the case? Do you had to cut anything or just wrap it and it sticks perfectly on any shape? Is that how you did it? I would like to know cuz i would love to try myself later this month. I have thought of pimping my case for looks. I'm leaving the inside alone anyways cuz i'm wary the thought of having carbon affecting my regular temp and airflow change inside the case. Please input details how you slapped it on top nicely. I swear to god i t looked like you had to cut it.

how would carbon fiber effect ur temps lol, it does not effect the temps at all, ive done other cases and no temps effected

yes you have to cut it, to make it fit and nice,

yes it streches but not by much, and if u overheat it, it looks like crap, and u cant fix it after.

planing is the biggest thing in wrpaping, cutting everything the rigth lengh, usually plus 1/4 inch on every side, then u have to cut the inside adges and such.

most important is to follow the print when u put the next pice of carbon on align it with the first so the crabon inprint alligns with the other piece. there is a worklog on how to do it

You used a hair dryer didn't you? Hopefully youtube has videos of people doing this to their towers. I still don't wanna add carbon inside anyways. I'd keep the outside nice That's just me.

no hair dryer does not work as well as a heat gun on medium settings does, u can get one at lowes or home depot for $22, but i got the $100 one where u can select the exact temp you want, cause i mess around with acrylic sometimes so it comes in handy
