I think it might be my fault so don't get worried too soon lol... you're too jumpy-to-conclusions Mister. wink.gif

I'm just wondering if anyone ever noticed an easy to spot reason for this to happen because I'm too lazy to reopen the case and start fiddling with it. tongue.gif

It's probably something I did lately to cause this... it certainly shouldn't happen. The hdd mounts have rubber on them.

I was finally able to move over all my components from my huge Cosmos case. It was quite a challenge considering this case is a bit smaller.
Unfortunately, with my XSPC pump/res combo, I no longer have space for a CD drive and my fan controller. Currently the fan controller is screwed on to the top of the hard drive bay redface.gif
I plan to sell the XSPC res and purchase a separate pump and cylindrical reservoir so I can free up the front bays.
Also plan to install an EX140 rad (when its released) at the front intake.
What worries me is that found it really difficult to maneuver the 1/2" piping. It's gonna be a bit more challenging once I expand the loop. However, I really don't want to switch over to 3/8" as I'll have to buy new fittings thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif
Well, here are some pics of my work in progress.

In assuming you only have one drive, you can remove the empty drive sled above your HD. Maybe your HD is touching that empty sled and causing vibrations? confused.gif

I had the same issue. It turned out that one of my drives was vibrating beyond a reasonable level...so I replaced it. Problem solved:

You can probably improve performance with all of them by swapping the stock fan for a scythe gentle typhoon or noctua NF-F12.

i don't think i can get Alpenföhn products in my country (indonesia), but i'll check prolimatech product thumb.gif

really close gap between d14 and vga backplate mad.gif

If you can get Noctua products easily, then the Noctua NH-U12 might be another candidate for a good 120mm cooler. Height 158mm, widht 126mm. I haven't seen comparison tests for this one, though.

That's irritating. frown.gif
Don't upgraded cases, suspend your hard drives!

Eventualy, upgrade to cases which allow such trick to be isntalled neatly. biggrin.gif
