Hi all,

So I've been running my rig in this case for over a year and a half now. Still happy, But!

I have an Asus P55 mb an was fooling around with my fans the other day. I turned on Q-Fan and voila the 2000 RPM blade master on my 212+ revved down to a hushed 800 rpm. Which was really nice. Except now I was picking up on some motor buzzing noises. After some testing I realized each of the case fans was contributing. So I want to replace them.

My MB has 2 3 pin headers (marked PWR fan and CHA fan 2). These are near my top exhaust fan and my front intake fan. There are also 2 4 pin headers - one occupied by the CPU fan and one near my rear exhaust fan. (CHA 2).

I want to use the MB headers because I can clean up my cable management by ditching the two molex strings from my modular PSU. Plus I get a little MB control too.

Currently leaning towards two cougar vortex 140s for the front and top, and a cougar 120 pwm for the rear exhaust. The metalcastr YouTube video suggests they're only a little louder than gentle typhoons, and I don't mind the whoosh of air, it's the slight mechanical buzz I want to eliminate. Plus hey, orange will look good haha!

Thoughts?

Got a package from newegg today. I'm hoping this will breath some new life in to it.

The Corsair Accelerator 60GB SSD cache drive.
A70F55.JPG?psid=1

It comes with a nice brushed aluminum adapter

A70F56.JPG?psid=1

The install was easy, just mount the drive and install the software then restart. First thing I did was test it with HD Tune, I wasn't very happy at first but it kept getting better and better. I did six runs total.

This is 2 WD Black 1TB's in RAID 0
460

The First run with the SSD, needless to say I was scared after this.
460

Run 2, looking better still not great
460

Run 3 more of the same
460

Run 4
460

Run 5
460

Run 6, looks pretty much just like run 5 so I called it good. I wasn't sure if I liked what I was seeing.
460

So seeing the drop in it speeds I thought I better run something different to see whats going on. Knowing I was getting this drive I downloaded AS SSD and ran it before installing the SSD. Man this thing takes ages to run on a HDD.

HDD's only
518

With the SSD
501

This is now showing I'm taking a hit in my write speeds but getting a big bump in my reads. 4k's are up through the roof.

Now for a little real world use, I fired up Paint Shop Pro X4 and it took 15 second to open. Then closed it and tried again, 3 SECONDS! eek.gif So far using it I can tell programs open faster but I'm not seeing increased speeds from the inside the programs. So time will tell if it was worth the money. So far I'm liking it, now a boot time test from when the Windows boot logo to the log on screen Before the SSD it was 38 seconds, now it's at 19 seconds biggrin.gif Once in Windows, its just ready to go, no waiting for everything to load, I'm happy so far thumb.gif

Welcome! You might want to try using Asus Fan Expert, it's part of the AI Suite. You can make custom fan profiles for your CPU. From what I've read they are great fans, some are having problems with them making noise in the top of cases but not all.

Please post a pic of your rig when you get a chance and do the following

This case is simply too useful to switch out. I'd like to try something new for a portable media PC but there literally isn't anything on the market with it's functionality (NZXT Vulcan which I also had but too small)

I'd love to get my hands on an Aerocool RS-4 but no availability in North America.
