Any Fractal core 500 users here that have tried installing a Swiftech H220x on their case?

Care to share some photos? Thanks!

Will build mine tomorrow, just worried about clearance.

If your not planning to have optical / 3.5 hdd then youll have no problem with top exhaust

I don´t know what to do, but its awfull, it sound like a flute inside the pc.

Edit:
More info.
The noise is coming from the rear left border, where the quick release stuff is placed.

I had the issue with a coolermaster masterflow pressure 140, I thought it would be as quiet as the 120mm silencio But I was so wrong, it buzzed/ vibrated and never spun properly in pwm mode and when it did spin , it droned

I guess that any fan just makes turbulence in some instances, and you will only avoid them by choosing other fans, or changing the aerodynamics of the airflow ?

I'm no scientific: that's why I now own a bunch of fans 😁

I tried to hear the front fan to see what and you are right.
The frame also vibrates and makes the same noise xd.

Oh, is that what the noise is? I thought at first it was coil whine, but it didn't sound like that either.

Sounds like I better make an order for some Noctuas..

It´s something really weird.
The frame is really thick, but it vibrates a lot.
I´m going tro remove the quick release stuff, that piece of plastic and see what happens.
Maybe the case is too big and the vibrations has a long way to spread and sing it song.
I cannot try with another fan, i dont have any xd.

Funny, I sold 2 Noctuas of because they vibrated too much. My guess was that's why they sell those anti vibration rubber thingies tongue.gif

So you are experiencing the same noise?
I would say it sounds like a musical saw xd.Obviously not that loud, and not so high pitched xd.
post #15487 of 15600
board and proc has not arrived yet frown.gif

did this while waiting, 92mm noctua fans will be placed here as intake.. pretty happy with the results considering this is the first time I used a rotary tool smile.gif





test fit the sfx psu, H75 mounted at the rear for my GPU + G10 Kraken and H220-X for the proc, no clearance issues

cant wait to get this baby going!

is the define c someway noisier thant the r5?
post #15489 of 15600
since we are on the topic of quite rigs, is it worth removing the top and side panel vents and just use the magnet filters themselves?

I would like to run my GTs a aroundt 7v just so they produce less noise as possible, not that they are noisy though. Ive seen someone here cut-out those vents but not sure how much effect it has on cooling.

The magnetic filters in most cases, have by far the most air resistance compared to the vents, so I don't think you'll see much of an improvement.
On the other hand, removing the filters always had a great effect and allows lower fan speeds for the same cooling. Under load, with fans at 700rpm, my current Define S sees a +10C to +8C water temperate drop from just removing the front filter.

So I've always ended up with no filters (Air 240, Define Nano S, Define S). The good thing is that lower fan speeds and not intaking at the bottom (and top), all seem to contribute to a lot less dust build up.
