To you 550D owners, did Corsair fix the rattle (side pandel)? I was looking at newegg and some users reported that issue several months ago (around april 2012)

Didn't notice any rattling on the side panels. I have the stock fans.

Yeah, I was looking at newegg and some users reported rattle and vibration buzzing on the front door

I have not had any rattling issues with my front panel. Although I'm using Corsair AF120 fans instead of the stock ones. Not sure if that makes a difference.

The case is absolutely silent and I'm a stickler for fan noise. I can actually hear the slight fan noise coming from my monitors now that my tower is so silent.

That sounds awesome.

I have a small room atm and when I enter it, I instantly hear my CM Storm Trooper. It's like a mini airplane and it's really annoying when i'm not gaming and just browsing the internet.

No one knows how to "repair" those mild scratches on the front glossy plastic?

So it turns out it wasn't fan noise from the LCD's, but the hum from the back lighting. Apparently when LCD's are dimmed, it can cause the back light to emit a hum. I set the brightness back up to 95 on both my LCD's and the hum disappeared. Anything below 95 and it hums (I had it set to 50 before).

So now I can use my computer in almost total silence if it wasn't for the mini fridge I have in another corner. I previously used a CM Stacker 830 for maximum airflow and know what it's like to have a loud case. Having a silent case is very refreshing and immensely enjoyable.

I just got a 2nd hand 800D and I love it! Its huge! I do have to get a SATA upgrade kit though, and 2 of the front covers are missing, which won't be too bad if I put a dvd drive and fan controller.
