The Official Cooler Master HAF X/932/922/912(+) Club - Page 292

post #2911 of 23525
my HAF932 is REALLY loud. all my fans are turned at LOWEST, and the top of the case keeps vibrating. With little pressure, the vibration goes away and the case is quiet... is there anything I can do besides putting a weight ontop of the case to make it stop vibrating?

Go to a hardware or automotive store and pick up a short length of 3/16" ID or 1/4" ID tubing. Then cut off thin sections of it to use as small gaskets between your fans and the case. Put one on each fan screw. This will fix the vibration issue for less than $1.

I just cut a piece of a 1/8" to 1/4" pad into a circle and placed it right in the middle of the fan in btween the fan and the case. Worked for me.

I've been fortunate with mine that it doesn't buzz but I bought some interesting stuff at a craft store (yes... I said craft store). Creatology Fun Foam. Comes in nice big 12x18in sheets, is 1/16in thick, you can get almost any color, it is nice density foam and can be cut to any shape you need. Oh yeah... it was cheap too. I used it to make custom foam washers for my window install and also to isolate a fan that was bugging me on another computer.

"Computer supplies" at a craft store... who knew! Link

EDIT: I think I'll make a thread for this in the Case Mods General forum and see what happens hahaha

Jolly good find there. I have a Micheals store close by place too. I think that stuff could be made into a full size gasket for a radiator. Any color too!

My exact thinking when I was wondering where I could find some 1/16in ok density foam that I could use to seal stuff up a bit. It does compress down if you put it into a tight spot or tighten something down over it... but it still provides a layer between two pieces to help with things. The fact there is a lot of different colors available opens the door to interesting ideas like custom foam air baffles that work with your paint schemes.

I used stuff called AcoustiPack sound dampening sheets for the same purpose you are all talking about with the craft foam. It works great as a gasket but also can really help seal your case. I fit pieces of it over openings like around the radiator and over the vents on the sides of the hdds. Just getting rid of leaks and maximizing air flow reduced my temps by 2 degress. The reduction of noise was just a plus

By the way, does anyone know if it is okay to cover my pump with some soundproofing? I'm not sure if the liquid going through it does the job or if it relies on air moving over it. At the moment the pump is the loudest thing in my case so it would be a huge help.

Hi all,

Please add me to the 922 list.

This is my very first (Core i5) build so I hope all goes well. Here comes the part where I will probably fail a bit, cable management so I'll leave that for tomorrow...
