How are you liking the case so far and what made you choose the 550D instead of other cases? Also, how is the H100i and which fans are you using in your case? Any cooling issues so far?
post #4904 of 8654
Hi,

I've had the Corsair 650d case for a while, after some initial problems, I really like it. thumb.gif

Interested in quietening it down a bit (whilst still keeping temps down), I have heard the front fan is quite noisy and it seems that way to the 'ear' test. I have though about strategically placing noise dampening pads in the case, so far I thought behind the optical drive bays, onto the blanks and placing one large one, on the inside of the 'rear' side panel.

1. Can anyone think of anywhere else to 'safely' place some, by that I mean in places were it will not impact air movement and thus temps too much?

2. I am on a stock intel cooler, and obviously, for noise and cooling purposes that will have to go. biggrin.gif

3. Bit disappointed with the Corsair TX850 PSU, to the 'ear' test it does seem to be quite loud even when surfing the net. Can anyone shed light on this? it is a common problem with this model or am I hearing things? rolleyes.gif

4. My Sapphire 7850 is pretty much silent and runs cool so that's not the issue. thumb.gif

I'm just trying to get a system I can OC safely and game on, whilst not being sat next to a leaf blower. Obviously, there's going to be some noise.

At 'idle' I'd pretty much like a silent PC.

Thanks.


PS - I have just removed the front grill with a pair of pliers, managed it without risking trying to remove the front bezel. Not noticeably quieter, but will improve airflow for sure, and really the grill is a safety measure that an adult really need not worry out.

Can anyone recommend a 200MM fan to replace the stock one? emphasis on QUIET, my PSU is not modular so I cannot move the HD cage to the middle (although I have removed the top section) so the new fan will have to fit in the same space as the existing one, thanks.

I'm absolutely convinced the main issue at idle is the PSU, the fan must be at close to full speed, and I have done cleaned as much dust out of it as I can. mad.gif


Thanks.

Many people are using the Bitfenix 200mm Spectre Pro fan. Although there are better fans, this one is very quiet and moves more air than the stock Corsair 200mm fan. Also, it has multiple mounting holes so you won't have to mod at all, and it comes is various colours of LED (or none at all). I have one in my 600T, but I will be removing it. The quiet is nice, but I prefer the better airflow I got with a nzxt 166 cfm fan.

I really like the 650D case. Congrats on a great choice.

That's a pretty hot build there fellow Canadian. Why did you select that particular case (other than it looks really sweet)? Since that case is for reduced noise, I would have thought a gamer with multiple GPUs would have selected something else.

How are your temps?

550D is not made for custom W/C. Too many limitations. The closed-loop kits should be fine on the other hand.

Have you some photos from top view ?

Funny thing about the Corsair 800D

 

It doesnt matter If I place the bottom fan under the midplate, or on the very bottom as both configurations give me exact temperatures

 

Also it doesnt really matter If I place a fan under the midplate and 1 fan on the very bottom at the same time as well.
