@Shiggins: all fans notoriously loud when used on the side panel. I moved the R4s I had to the back on my H50 and it was like night and day. I have since put more R4s on the side and I get the same old noise. I opted to mod the headers to run the fans at 7V and it made a huge difference. Any fan controller would do the same trick.

Edit: Guess I was too late hitting the reply button on this one...

still they are killer fans BUT if you still have the stock side window most of the noise is actually from the vents causing turbulence in the air flow.
This is right. They're 60cfm, CM measures it a different way than most people. A lot of them are switching to H3O, either to confuse us or as a new standard. It's a pressure measurment instead of Cfm because a lot of fans (esp with sleeve bearings) slow down when there's a block in front of them.

i personaly would give a good look to the H50... it seems to me like that would be the best solution for your system. it dosent put much (if any) strain on the mother board and it has verry little that could go wrong and corsair is REALLY good about fixing things that it screws up (like if it leaks or the pump dies)

I'm trying to remember if this question has been asked in the 1k pages before this, but has anyone found a way to quiet a loud R4?
Its not the R-4s fault.. We at the CMSSC have discovered overtime that the vents in the side on the stock Window causes Air Turbulence and increased noise, which is why so many have changed the Stock window for a Custom window with one or two fan holes built into it with no shroud.. The Shrouds in the metal front and the bulls Eye in the front bottom of the case also cause more air resistance and more turbulence as well.

Now there are a lot of ways of quieting a Fan.

First as striker said.. Molex them all and then run it through a Fan controller and turn them to about 80 percent.

Second.. Take out the fans and Replace with rubber mounts and rubber anti-vibration soft ware... Hard ware is not a good word for it..

http://www.endpcnoise.com/cgi-bin/e/...nsulation.html
http://www.endpcnoise.com/cgi-bin/e/...ntrollers.html

Third is to set your bios fan controller and let the motherboard handle the fan controls as needed.

But lets here from the Experts at Quiet PC and see what they say.

Quote:
How To Build A Quiet PC

There are a thousand and one articles out there that give you methods for quieting your PC. Some of those methods are helpful and some are inadequate. These five simple steps are what we believe to be the five top priorities to keep in mind when building a quiet pc or upgrading your current machine to a quiet pc.
Concentrate on the THREE BIG SOURCES of PC noise
The Power Supply, The CPU Fan, and The Case Fan (if applicable)

Then, once the big noises have been reduced you can address the small noises in your pc. If the small noises (such as the hard drive, motherboard fan, video card fan, or loud cd/dvd disk drive) are still a source of frustration, then you can address them and/or you can consider case insulating material.

More information is available in our Frequently Asked Questions regarding which computer parts to Replace First in order to quiet your PC.
When planning your Quiet PC, Buy Smart.

When everything else is equal, buy a motherboard that has a heatsink instead of a motherboard fan. If two video cards are basically the same, buy the video card that has the heatsink instead of a video card fan or fans. However, if the particular motherboard or video card you had your eye on didn't come with a heatsink, but instead came with a fan, you can easily replace that noisy fan. Those small fans actually tend to be quite noisy because of the turbulence produced when a lot of air is pushed through a small area. Consider using a Zalman silent video fan to replace that noisy video card fan. Consider a Zalman motherboard heatsink to replace the motherboard northbridge chipset fan.
Establish Proper Cooling in your Quiet PC.

Make sure your computer doesn't overheat in the search for a Quiet PC.

1. Establish a good airflow pattern. See our computer cooling page for more information.

2. Use the right products for your computer.

Generally, we don't suggest that customers alter an existing product themselves to make it run slower (quieter). Standard computer parts are not designed to cool sufficiently without the same airflow.

If you are an overclocker or just a do-it-yourselfer that likes to experiment, just keep in mind that running a product outside of its specifications is an at-your-own-risk procedure.

All of our quiet CPU coolers have specifications on their product pages which indicate which cpus they are designed for. These products will silently cool your CPU sufficiently when installed properly.

3. Consider hardware monitoring.

Many new motherboards include hardware monitoring which enable you to track your CPU's internal temperature at all times.

4. Consider products that boost the ability of your PC to cool itself, including quiet case fans, rounded cables, or a case such as the P183 which provides superior cooling by the upper and lower chamber structure to isolate power supply heat from the rest of your components.

Buy High Quality computer silencing products

As PCs get faster and faster and computer parts get noisier and noisier, almost every computer cooling company is jumping on the quiet computer bandwagon. This doesn't mean that every "quiet" CPU fan or "quiet" power supply is created equal. The parts we carry are highly specialized and are "silent" or "ultra quiet". All of our parts run less than 33 decibels, most of our parts run at 20 decibels or lower, some of our parts are absolutely silent (they have no moving parts). In addition to the specifications given to us by manufacturers all parts we carry withstand our Quiet PC test as we use all parts we carry in the highly regarded Quiet PCs which we build. We have chosen each quiet computer part because it is the best solution for that particular computer noise problem.

There are many products that we have tried, but have not decided to sell because:


1. We couldn't honestly tell our customers they were the highest quality computer parts available

2. They were overly difficult to work with

OR

3. The price tag was too high in relationship to the benefit they provided

QUIET YOUR PC BY STOPPING THE NOISE AT THE SOURCE.

It is far more efficient to stop PC noise at the source of the noise rather than try and cover up the noise.

This is true both in terms of how well you can stop PC noise, and in terms of how convenient the process is. Trying to cover up the noise by adding sound proofing measures such as installing case insulation, placing your computer in an insulating box, or putting your computer in a closet, is less effective, less convenient, and more costly than replacing the offending parts with reasonable quiet alternatives. Usually you can replace 3-4 parts and have a computer, which is nearly impossible to hear without putting your ear within a few inches of your machine.

Case insulation is a great idea, and may just provide you with that little bit of an edge when it comes to silencing your computer. Keep in mind, however, that insulating your computer won't decrease computer noise as well as replacing the offending parts. Additionally, installation of computer insulating material at times can be both time-consuming and tricky, and can increase the temperature inside your computer case.

Fan vibration isolators, rubber grommets, and noise dampening quiet computer feet are also great noise dampening touches which work well in unearthing every last source of noise in your quiet computer.

Yep, he's right again guys. It's the case sometimes, I put those silicone gaskets around the fans on Mindy's Scout and there was a hush, like 30% of the noise was not there anymore.

OTOH, my Haf is as loud as a model airplane!

I disagree in part with this stuff: http://www.endpcnoise.com/cgi-bin/e/...nsulation.html

Well, it wasn't exactly this stuff but there used to be a product called Acousomat or something like that. It was like semi-cured rubber. It stopped the noise quite a bit but including the stuff above, you have to be carefull where you put it. Too much in the wrong area and you block either air movement or heat that escapes out the panel, like the one behind your mobo.

One of the best things ever to do to your system to shut it up a little is put silicone between the drive and the cage. Some drives, like the Velociraptors are real screamers when they run for a few minutes.

Yeah I had the gaskets on the side panel and messed around with fan speed in BIOS and in other programs. The first didn't do anything noticeable (at least for me) and the second caused the fans to be quiet but click instead.

However, as mentioned I am going to simply cut myself a new panel for a project. Thanks for all the advice everyone!

Yeah, did you ever hear a 15,000rpm SCSI drive? Zero to ouch in 6 seconds. Kind of a zzzziiinngg sound, once they stayed at speed though they quieted out. If it wasn't for SCSI we wouldn't have SATA.

@ Bradey. I get it, finally, you have your side fan blowing out so you can guide it around with the mouse. Right?
No really, once I finish cutting the holes on my GT's the loudest thing will be the sound of the water trickling in my spin res.
