So I got my case, like it a lot, bunches of room. Yadda Yadda etc etc.

However, I installed one of those Cooler Master R4 fans onto my side panel, and even with a fan controller set to LOW speed, the fan continues to make a "humming" sound. The sound is louder with higher speeds, and the only way I can seem to make the humming go away is to put my hand over the panel vents to cut airflow to the fan. Any ideas on how I can fix this?

Has anyone changed the side window to either a tint red or black / solid red or black??

I want to change the side window and it's on special for $9.95 (400x400mm), so I'm considering going either black, to have a menacing 'solid black' look, or could go red and add to the already black and red theme...

Check to see if you have the clear rubber rings installed between the fan and the panel, they came with your case and are meant to dampen the vibration/noise.

Check to see if all four screws are tight...these screws are a pain in the butt to install, so one of them may not be tightened all the way.

If neither of the above apply, you may have just received a bad fan...it is possible and has happened before.

DAMN... rubber rings??? must have missed those! I've got 2 fans on the side panel, clearly without the rubber dampers and its not too noisey.... although I did fork out for some nice brand new Akasa fans

Got my new Accelero installed on my 4890... wow.. what a difference.
On the stock cooler.. The fan at 25% was annoyingly loud... with this new cooler, 100% is barely audible.

I used photo stickers, they look identical to photo paper.

I just printed the necessary pics/logos on and cut them out...presto

You could probably either go for that, or could go for diy window decals. Those are transparent stickers unlike the photo stickers which are glossy white

Agh... Simple

I was just asking cos they look really good and wondered if you'd done them on vinyl using a large format printer.

I'm the in-house designer for Roland DG, who make those big assed printer/cutters which is quite handy cos I can run down to our demo suite anytime and make all kinds of stickers or decals. Actually wrapped a bunch of Dell PC's and Laptops last April... hhmm wonder if I can find any pics....

*edit* Found some...

Nice. Accelero coolers are amazingly quiet and almost always drastically outperform stock. Used one on my friend's 3870.
