[Official] Fractal Design Case Club - Page 381

post #3801 of 15845
I installed the Bitfenix fan and I don't know if it's defective or just makes an annoying sound. @7v it was quieter, but still had some irritating noise. I'm taking it back. Based on what a couple of you said, I may just gotten a whiner. I am hesitant to exchange it. In the meantime I just slapped in my Scythe 1200 RPM, 120mm. I can hear it, but at least it's smooth.

So no GPU for now as I mentioned before so I have not cleaned everything up. I should get a replacement from EVGA by the end of the week. In fact you can see one of the PCI-e cables coiled up on the floor. It almost looks naked with no GPU. I almost didn't post this since it's a work in progress and a real mess ATM. But it should enable me to join the club. wink.gif

EDIT: I am running an i7-2600K @ stock. Ambient is 25C/79F. Using Real Temp 3.70 and @ idle I'm getting 33C on cores 0 & 3. 24C & 28C on the other two. I may have to tighten down the Macho. Used Tuniq TX-4. Need some more air to do a moderate OC.

I am willing to run a lower OC than deal with loud fans. I'm open to suggestions...
Could use this NZXT for the exhaust since it's 26dBa, 1300 RPM +/-10%, 62.5 CFM. Has anyone tried it?

EDIT: I have ruled the NZXT out. Corsair Air Series AF140has higher CFM with lower dBA.

Sounds like you just had bad luck with the fan as my fans don't have any type of clicking or whining, the noise is very smooth (except the 230mm which I'm still trying to figure out...). Even a GT or Noctua can have a clicky sound redface.gif
post #3803 of 15845
Well, maybe I should just exchange it afterall. The one @ Micro Center is not sleeved. The New Egg one is. I compared the part numbers and they are the same.

It was a clicky sound. At first I thought it was hitting the dust filter. But is also made some other noise too.

The Hyper EVO is 159mm in height. The Core 1000 only supports coolers with a height of 135mm. So unfortunately, the EVO will not fit in the Core 1000.

My Arc Midi comes on friday with 3 extra 140mm AF Corsair fans.

What is the best fan configuration for you guys so far? I was just going to have standard 2 intake, 2 up top as exhausts with the rear exhausting. This is with Noctua D14 and a dual fan gpu. Might get a 200mm for the top and use the Corsair's as intake and exhaust with a stock on the floor.

The 135mm seems to be inaccurate as I have heard of people fitting bigger coolers in there. I think someone had managed to fit an Alpenföhn Matterhorn (157mm) but I could be wrong, so I'll take no responsibility if one does not fit biggrin.gif

If you have the case, you can measure it yourself: Just measure the distance from CPU to side panel.

The EVO will cause the door panel to bow out slightly. Click & read... http://www.anandtech.com/show/5736/fractal-design-core-1000-how-little-is-too-little/3

I'm currently modding my Core 1000 and had already checked the absolute max height. I had measured roughly 156mm to the door panel but I'm modding my panel door so I can use heatsinks up to 160mm thumb.gif
