Hmm. Never had vibrations with mine when I had it. Come to think of it I've never had vibrations with any of my 4 Fractal cases. Can you tell where abouts it's vibrating from?

if its coming from the sidepanels, just loosen the thumbscrews... if you (over)tighten them, it puts tension on the panel and it is prone to "vibration" noise.

I did this and it change nothing frown.gif
Many of the vibrations come from the front dust filter and from the side panel
Oh and fans are noisy too https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rxGIdBG4jo&list=UUdF1PXh7WGfDcTgHrxtMKqA ( you can hear like there is something hitting the pales )

time to take some part apart then and apply rubber/foam (draft) strips in strategic places Or maybe a nylon/rubber washer on on the fan(s) to change their distance from the panel

One thing to try: fold over some paper till you have soemthing thick enough to wedge between right sidepanel and the MB tray, as if trying to make it "bulge out"... if that changes noise... replace with a rubber block/wedge


Note that you may have a fan imbalance causing an harmonic vibration throughout the cage; so, try changing them out.. or switching positions.

I tried putting rubberband but it changed nothing sadsmiley.gif
I think its comming from my desk because if i put a pressure on it it stops vibrating...

Hi guys!
I was wondering if it's worth getting a intake fan at the bottom? This is currently how my R4 looks. The only problems is that I'd just be able to get a 120mm because of the PSU. I mean would I see any bigger difference since I've alot of cables there also that would block the airflow.

I think you would see more noise increase than actual temp improvement. So, I wouldnt do it.

That was my thought too. I was thinking about something like sound dampening material instead.

I dont think that would make any difference really, unless you cover that gap with something and you clearly notice less noise coming out of your case.
