the side panel does creak once in a while, but even my cat running by the case will amke it do that, the only noise i get once in a while is the bottom hard drive bay vibrates a little bt, but i jsut added some rubber washers that came with the case and those noises are gone, this thing is silent even with 4 fans using the controller are cranked

yeah, at first I was worried it was my HDD, but I was able to replicate the sound down to a T by applying a bit of pressure to areas of the case, specifically the mesh.

I wonder if I can line it with sound dampener.

that wouldn't hurt, if anything the panel needs a little more bulk so it sits still. i don't use the mesh. i love the airflow in the case with the acrylic pane on it. it is like a vacuum in there.
on the same topic, does anyone know if there is a tool you can use to measure the flow of air in a computer case?

Interesting, I am considering put the window back on instead of the mesh. Can you please describe your fan configuration?

nothing serious from the stock setup.the fornt and top 200mm fans are intakes, (the top fan comes as an exhaust) i am using the H60 on the back of the case in a push pull exhaust setup, making the case exhaust from a smaller fan than the intake, making it a nice flow of air. i used the stock setup and was getting a 22c overall temp in the case, and the new setup of the top 200mm fan dropped it 3c, its not a lot, but for a simple change it worked for me, and didn't cost a thing and took 5 minutes, i have been considering getting 2 realllly nice 120mm fans and putting them in the top of the case, but im not a fan expert and im trying to think of what to get and or whats good or not. if you click on my profile u can see picture of my PC. im at work and cant upload into this forum

I have two akasa vyper's in the top as an exhaust. The real problem I am having atm is keeping the top sli card cool. I might try switching the top fans from exhaust to intake, use the window'd side panel and see what happens. My H70 is also push/pull at back of the case.

I would leave the top as exhaust and just put the side panel fans for more intake.

i would do this but 1, that would require buying more fans, and 2. ads a lot of noise. i am running 2 OCd 5770s and they dont get hot at all. and im cranking games like no tomorrow. my apartment is small, and as you can see from my profile pic the case has to sit on my desk next to me, and having extra fans running gets annoying. the only heating problem is the Mobo, its not that bad, peaks at 38c. but its a tad warmer than wanted. but ooking at my old build, this ice cold in comparison

I think the real issue for me is that my gigabyte soc 470 in sli dump a lot of heat in the case and I need it exhausted pretty quick. I think the best is to either water cool them or get a 580 or 590 with a reference cooler that blows the heat out of the back of the case.
