My question was "without modding". Thanks anyway:-)

Another thing: I can't seem to find any info on the decibels the stock fans do... do any of you guys think they are loud? If I change them to some noctuas or something, will there be a difference? I ordered a asetek 760gc clc and a 740GF to cool my 2500k OCed to 4.3Ghz and my two Inno3D gtx570 Hawk in SLI and try reducing the overall noise but my pc seems loud even in idle mode.

not in the club officially, mainly because im too lazy to fill form. but here is mine:
(full gallery here)


OS: Win 7 64bit
mobo: prebuilt Asus-CM5675-09 doh.gif dont ask
cpu: i5-650 (LGA 1156/Clarkdale)
cooler: stock (yes, fan is lopssided, thats how its was on heatsink..
ram: 6GB (3 x 2GB)
psu: corsair hx750
gpu: evga gtx 660ti SC (still overclocked it)
soundcard: Creative Sound Blaster Z (onboard audio died)
SSD: Samsung 830 120GB
HDD: Seagate Barricuda 2TB / WD 1 TB x3
Fan total: 6 out of the 9 available spots (1 120mm RED LED included in rear, 2 120mm on top and on side panel, 1 140mm in front)
misc: Asus dvdrw, NZXT LCD 5-fan controller, NZXT LED multicolor controller w/strip
peripherals: razer naga epic, acer 23" H233H, crappy keyboard

Upgrade plans: (because i know the insides will most likely be criticized, hehe)
*waiting on Haswell news before I make decision. b/c i know its LGA 1150. otherwise sticking with the following..
mobo: asus sabertooth z77
cpu: i5-3570K (was gonna do i7-3770k but wouldve been overkill)
cooler: either h80i or seidon120.. still researching which prefilled watercooling fits best. no, dont want h100i, i dont wanna mod. lazy.
ram: corsair dominator 8GB (2 x 4GB) might go higher with my work demand.
gpu: maybe 2nd 660ti later for SLI.. like next yr or holidays.
SSD/HDD: definitely more. possibly onboard RAID
misc: need new keyboard, headphones, new psu sleeving, and possibly another external drive for backing up more than twice

sorry for long post, i figured i give as much info as possible to avoid tons of questions on my sketchy upgrade, new to pc building smile.gif

I don't think they are very loud, really. My tower is right next to me and I can barely hear them. When gaming it gets a bit loud, but that's the Ultra Kaze's and my GPU fans. If you want quiet at medium to high RPM, stay really, really far away from the Ultra Kaze's. lol Great fans, but super loud at high RPM.

Thanks, let's hope you're right and that the problem is my gpu's 3 fan coolers. I really hope I can find a way to fit the two 120mm rads on the storm Scout. Will keep you posted! :-)
