so the "duster" version is safe to use inside your case? I heard that the electrostatic cleaners like the regular swiffer was not advisable to use. I was also told that using a vacuum cleaner was bad too. I think I am just going to keep using Armour All.

Can anyone show/link me to a good replacement fan for the front 200mm which moves decent air but is quiet? the stock one is WAY TOO LOUD even on a fan controller and the case one... From a UK retailer please, Thanks!

Case creaks a lot BTW..bit annoying lol

Would that fit? I can't remember what the maximum fan thickness was for this case? I remember someone saying they were good fans.

im planning on changing to all 120mm fans, debating what brand, and i prefer all black with no LEDs..

I've heard of a few people who's 600T fan controller died. Are you just using it for the case fans? If so, it should have worked without any problems. The only people I've heard with this problem are those who tried controlling fans that required fairly high current and killed the controller. If you were just running the stock fans I would definitely talk to Corsair about it. Maybe you can talk them into just letting you remove the controller and send it in instead of the entire case.

They're really not very staticy (is that even a word?). I don't use them on the motherboard or the video card, but on the tops of the drives, bottom of the case, nooks and crannies (it's amazing where those things will fit), drive bays. Basically any place that's not the motherboard or the video cards.

As for the vacuum, wow. First time I've heard that. I've been using a combination of vacuum cleaners and a compressor on every computer I clean for ages. It's never caused a problem. They actually make vacuums especially for computers (I even have a little tiny one for cleaning heat sinks and fans).

This is what I would like for cleaning my computers:

But the thing costs more than my compressor did.

This is the compressor I use at home:

Got it on sale for $60. Works great for cleaning computers (along with a vacuum) for major jobs. It's oil free so there are no worries regarding oil. I use a 5 gallon unit at work and it works even better with 135 psi. I seem to be doing well with the Swiffer though. I only have to use the compressor and vacuum when the fans start getting dirty.

IMHO, I really don't think you're going to find a fan that moves more air but is quieter. Unless there's a defect in your fan, I found the stock 600T 200mm fan to be very quiet at the expense of air flow. I replaced mine with an NZXT 200mm fan that moves a lot more air at full speed, but is also a lot louder at full speed.

You could improve airflow by removing the mesh at the front of the case allowing you to turn the RPM of the fan down.

My case is noticeably cooler. I don't have any solid numbers to quote yet, will post some up in the next day or so.

Also, I hate LEDs. Made my computer look like a disco ball!

eySON, you can check the voltage being put out by the fan controller using a mutimeter. This will tell you whether or not it is stuck at full speed, half speed, etc...
cool will try switching them with 120mm thanks! about the fan controller i checked by looking at the LEDs because my friend has the same case and his LEDs were brighter and fans were louder. mine was stuck at the lowest speed.

yea i was thinking of doing the same and replacing my window with the mesh and fans instead.

That's very similar to the one I have.



The air/water separator is a must if your using it for PC dusting.
