Hehe. I only know that because I bought some car vinyl to put on my telescope of all things and while researching car vinyl came across some tutorial videos about heatshrinking vinyl over the side view mirrors biggrin.gif

Been a month since I started the RMA process, still no result other than confirming they would be sending a new case. I'm not overly frustrated, since they've offered a new case, but it's been 12 days since they said they were going to send out a case with no response. Starting to think I should just buy a lamptron fan controller to hold me over. 100% stock fans are not pleasant.

If you haven't already, you should contact them. They replaced my entire case as well, and I had a tracking number within 48 hours, and received the new case 5 days later.

Thanks for the comprehensive advice lads. Rep+1. However, I may not have to go down this road after all.

I did two things today. First was unplugging the working OEM H100 fan. This was indeed 60% of the noise but the front 200mm was making up the other 40% and was very loud. A whine and a lot of wind noise with it being right up against the front grille. Instead of cutting out the mesh with a dremel I tried something else first, which was to use long bolts and several nuts per bolt and sume rubber fan washers to position the 200mm fan about an inch back from the mesh. I then made some duct to the front mesh with a 1 inch strip of black Kydex plastic. Result is whine gone, wind noise gone and a very quiet 200mm fan. Amazingly. despite the fan now being mounted to the front panel on what are in effect stilts, the fan vibration when you touch the plastic fan frame or the metal front panel is a lot less than when the fan was directly mounted to the front panel. The result is more than I could have hoped and I can put away the dremel unused. I am now happy with the noise from all the case fans even though they are all running 100% so I don't think I need to swap them out for PWM fans nor get a fan controller.

As for the H100 running on a single low RPM fan with the high powered OEM fan switched off. Well even running a Furmark benchmark which heats up the two 580's, the max core temp on the 2500k was 39ºc. I case I find it climbing higher, say when I play BF3 later, I will be able to switch the loud OEM fan on because I have hooked it up to the one remaining working output on an old fan controller I had lying around. It can only turn the fan on and off but at least all I have to do is pop the side panel of the case and turn the dial to switch the fan on or off rather than unplugging and plugging in everytime which could damage the fan cables/headers if I had to do it too often. Anyway, this is just so I can run quiet or max cooling and loud as easy as possible until I get the H100 RMA'd, have 2/4 working fans on it and can get back to set and forget.

...

Many thanks to all those who have advised me along the way and/or recommended parts etc. Especially whomever it was who recommended the 166cfm NZXT 200mm. Absolutely great powerful fan and near silent when mounted back from the mesh biggrin.gif

Good job. Nice solution. I would consider the same thing on my 200mm NZXT fan if I didn't have my hard drive cage right up against it. I usually have it turned down to 1/2 speed though so it's not too loud.

Installed another Gelid for exaust and 2 uv cathodes cause the fans are uv reactive and its looking way better like this...

Made a psu cover with a corsair logo underneath the carbon vinyl and another cover for the hard disks with the Asus logo on it..Also i mounted my ssd on the drive bay!!

Ps: Darkcyde thanks for the tip on the ssd!!!

That looks really awesome. Looks factory. Good job.

That's not nice at all. I find nothing ruder than not responding to emails. A quick message at least acknowledging you are still waiting and that the case will be shipped would go miles toward a happy customer.

Where I work, I have to deal with a head office. I am constantly giving them $hit for not responding to emails. It's the same thing as ignoring a person who's talking to you. Rude as heck.

That looks great. Now you should get the new Asus Sabertooth P67 and put the carbon vinyl on the MOBO shield. Would be even more pure win.

It has probably been answered before but I don't feel like looking through 414 pages. Anyone recommend a good replacement to the front 200mm fan, preferably red?
