where did you get the expander? You have some of the most beautiful and awesome looking rigs I have seen.

Try mounting them (as a test) against a solid hunk of steel in your case and see if they are still loud. You might find they are not that bad if bolted directly to something that does not move or will not vibrate.

They come with those rubber anti-vibration mounts but those (in my opinion) do not work (at least on these fans). I tried them out and they rattled the case. I used traditional screws and bolts so they are all secure against the chassis or solid components & no rattle and no buzz... just a smooth hum.
The fans are securely fastned, there is pre drilled and tapped holes for two fans where they are mounted. They are not rattling or buzzing as you say. They hum but it is a higher pitched hum than the rest of the fans in my case. They are even louder than my San Ace fans at rpm for rpm.

Thanks... I wanted to give the case a pompadour look ... which would incolve moving the radiator up more towards the front but... then that would be silly so it turned in to more of a mohawk

I think me going against nature and forcing air down is working well. My overall core temperatures as well as my internal case temperatures actually dropped by about 4c. Putting my hand in to the case under the internal rad is no scientific measure by any means, but the air flow and pressure is nuts.

If I went the traditional direction... because I don't have antiquate water cooling on my other components (yet), I'd be sucking hot air in to the rads out of the case. I'm not pulling enough cold air from the base of the case... only 1 fan. If I had a row of 4, then I might reverse the flow but... realistically we are only talking about a difference of 2.5 feet from where I'm sucking in the air.

Initially I had a second row planned for that thick radiator (and it's still the plan because it's almost a must on a rad that thick) but I had trouble mounting the crazy stack between the internal rad, the fans above that rad and the frame, and then the quad rad. I didn't want to use the swiftech box...I needed some double threaded long bolts or something. The box turned out fine but... I had a row of 4 fans planned for the quad.

I'll figure something when i get some more $$

Thanks.

I guess I would just have to try one of those brands to appreciate the difference.

I would like to think I have a spilled blood bond with Sharky fans... because one of the blades sliced and diced a nice 1/2 inch gash on my palm under my thumb that I didnt even notice until the next day when I was putting hand sanitizer on... turned out to be a pretty deep cut I felt for a good week.

"Shark" fans slicing my palm... go figure.
