Some of you may remember my last project with my Scout. I replaced all the fans with Noctua brand fans. (2) 140mm, and (3) 120mm. What I neglected to mention was prior to swapping out all my fans for the Noctua brand fans, I had an issue with the Cooler Master R4...

COOLER MASTER R4-L2R-20AC-GP 120mm Blue LED Case Fan
Link
  • Originally, I had installed the above CM fan in my optical drive bay (underneath my 2 DVD drives) using the Scythe Kama Bay. Shown below:

  • Initially this was efficient and cool to look at too. After about a week of this set-up, the front (removable) panel would collect a lot of dust, which is not a big deal. However, something about this particular fan's design was causing a loud rattling sound.
  • At first I didn't think the dust on a fan could cause this noise, but after hardware troubleshooting, I was able to isolate the problem to this fan.
  • I can't explain exactly how the dust was causing this *clicking* noise, but after I cleaned the fan and its surrounding area of dust, the noise stopped. After a week of dust build up, the noise began again.

  • Note: This wasn't the reason I switched to Noctua. The "Noctua Plan" was something I had previously always planned on doing. The following information is just a result of it.

  • Now after about 2 months (without cleaning the dust off) the Noctua 120mm fan does not repeat the R4's flaw. With 8 times the allowed time for dust build up, the Noctua fan does not have issues creating the same loud rattling noise.
  • The said fan is intanking cool air from the front, and a circular build up of dust appears on the outside of the front (removable) panel. Sure, it's gross to see and I have to wipe it off every 2-3 days, but it gives me peace of mind that the air-flow is nice and strong.
  • Note: Although, shown in the image is not the Scythe Kama Bay, the 120mm Noctua is mounted into the spot using the Scythe Kama Bay.
  • I mention this little experience not to boast about Noctua Brand, but for a hands on experience of the noticeable difference in efficiency. I am in no way down talking the quality of Cooler Master's R4 series of case fans either. I do believe in sharing this sort of honest, experience in products for comparison and shopping.
  • In conclusion, I would recommend Noctua case fans to anyone. Although pricey, worth while to me in the end results. Quick mention, right after switching out all the Corsair/Cooler Master fans with Noctuas, my case temp dropped 3-5 degrees. I currently sit at a consistent 38 degrees Celsius.
  • Hope this information was, at least, some what helpful for anybody in the market for new case fans.

If anything, you may find it easier to remove the 140mm exhaust fan to get the cables out, but I don't believe it's necessary.
Thank you ROM. I stand corrected

Yeah, I wouldn't go back either, in the TN panel you get what 17,000+ colors changing by shifting frequence and in the IPS-H you get 1 million colors that just flat out change from one to the next. If more people could afford them IPS would be the standard. An artist needs what an artist needs.

I love the Noctua fans.. More air flow and slower speeds and noise.. good design and ugly fan.. sounds like some cars that I know of.

The H50 was very good, It cooled my Phenom II excellently

I sold it so i could afford a SSD

Then i got this megahalem of a mate today

But H50 is a very good cooler

Rep+ to Clee for his directions on how to route your wires, this should go for all the new members. Just for reference, here is a pic of the backside:



For the hard drive rattles. I seem to be the only person who was provided with little tiny silicone disks that go around the snap in racks, everyone else got them for thier fans. However, you can cut a disk out of construction (art) paper, some thin rubber. Who was it, from Sweden, took off the disks for the fans then used the rest to quiet his PSU and drive cage. I know MlbrottN (don't kill me if I got it wrong) is from there but I think it was someone who was only here a few weeks. Anyway, some kind of little gasket usually does it.

@New Members. Also if you guys are still in need of upgrades or parts you really should sign up on New Egg for thier E-blast deals. I got a $30- part for $11- off on Wednesday. Pretty good, 1/3rd off just for getting an e-mail every day, don't want it, just delete it. Tired of seeing it, un-subscribe.
