Mines quiet. In fact the three I have put in customer machines have all been respectable (one noisier than the rest but still less than a case fan).

also he's better off replacing the stock fan if that's the case, his PSU being opened and exposed like that is just waiting for Darwin to chime in.

The new one I just got 2 weeks ago is quiet as can be.

I had one running in a Mini ITX Lian Li case sitting on my desk and I never heard it at all. One review indicated it was loud and suddenly it's loud? Maybe on an open test bench under full load but in a case? Not likely.

@ person with bare PSU you edited your post right before I was about to quote it, I am using the ST45SF-G Now i dont know if this is the same one you are using but I found it too loud as well. I am currently in the process of swapping out the fans in it to a Noiseblocker which is really an easy process. The way I did it was to remove the stock fan and I ordered some 2pin adapters from ModDIY. Then it is as simple as recrimping the wires to the new fan and putting that in biggrin.gif

It still needs a bit -actually a lot- of adjustments, especially with dimensions and fan holes.
But it is just something I made for fun, so no worries tongue.gif

ps; I'm uploading the .skp files is anyone wants to play around with it.

Edit: compared to an SG05 mock-up Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)





Also put pics in spoilers smile.gif

Edit 2: Here's the link http://www.mediafire.com/?obtwx0os134kszm

This looks pretty good downloaded and opened up the model and at first glance I noticed you have alot of room on the top of the mobo. You were saying that you need to make some more adjustments is this one of them? Other than that it looks pretty good. Just need to remember your HDD/SSD mounting areas as well. thumb.gif


Well I highly doubt any of you remember me but I have been in here off and on but I feel like helping out the SFF community as much as possible right now! I have some experience in current, past, and even failed projects so if anyone wants some pointers I will do my best to help out biggrin.gif. Also I am kinda working on getting my rep up so I can sell things tongue.gif

I'll be dedicating the 920 for VM testing.

In the original news thread here when the unit was first released we did this discussion to death. Half the people were saying it's got 'an unbearable noise' and the other half were saying 'what are you talking about?' One guy RMA'd his unit and Silverstone admitted it was faulty. So there was clearly a batch of those fans which had some quality problem.

Since then, I have seen many many of people posting that they are displeased with the noise of the stock fan ST45SF-G. I've got two of these units myself and while the noise didn't bother me, I changed the fan for a Noiseblocker PC-P and the difference is very obvious: http://youtu.be/gwl-A0Cx6t8 v http://youtu.be/9P02jVmMBuc

This. I've been running my ST45SF-G in my Node 304 build for a little while now, and after reading all the reviews, I decided to do an experiment. I had a buddy bring over his Seasonic X460 fanless PSU, and the difference was night and day. The noise of mine really doesn't bother me, as I went from a full ATX with 6 120mm fans, a huge tower cooler and a Radeon 6950 to the Node, but I will say that my PSU is easily the loudest component in my system until it's under a heavy load. I will very likely be swapping out the fan for the Noiseblocker unit.

This looks pretty good downloaded and opened up the model and at first glance I noticed you have alot of room on the top of the mobo.

Glad you sort of liked it tongue.gif I did plan for a cage with HDD/SSD (only lappy ones), but I was too lazy to make it the first time.
Anyways I made an upgraded model (which still needs measurement adjustments) but imo is better than the previous one. It also has the components in it so you can get an idea of what it looks like.
Well, it is uploading atm so i'll update this post when it is done.
