Which is also why i used quotation marks. my intention was to show, that i don't think there's a specific fault with the casing rattling (i'd rather use the word "humming" - though sometimes rattling). it might as well be me - though i have never had so many problems in silencing a casing before...

I've assembled the casing with:
1. tight (though not too tight) screws
2. inserted foam between aluminium in some places where it thought the sound developed
3. placed a pad of foam beneath my 2½" system disk, which i bought because of the noise of the mechanical parts being less evident than my 3½" storage disk. the system disk lies in the bottom of the drive cage to make the foam pad absorb all vibrant noise from the drive.
4. bought some AC low-rpm, motherboard controllable fans (which i inserted with a rubber ring between the fans and the casing).

It's probably a good idea to mention that the sound isn't present at all times, and it's usually removed by removing front and sides and sliding them gently in place again (there's nothing broken though).

Next step will be to place the 3½" drive in the 5,25" bay with fortified rubber bands, to eliminate that as a factor.

I'm probably just a too fussy with sounds, but i'd still love my working environment to be quiet, when i need it to be:cool:

did you by chance remove the plastic silencing things on the sides? They are there to help the side panels from rattling. Also are you thumb screws on the back tight?

I just checked yesterday actually, and both plastic silencing and metal 'sliders' are all intact.
Thumb screws have been tightened as well as i can with my fingers

If it is on a hard surface put something under it, like a magazine, or for a more permanent design get some nice new case feet, the standard ones have no padding at all.

I'll try that, thank you. It's sitting inside my desk (it's an open shelf/desk system), so there's probably not room for feet. I'll try with something absorbing under it though (newspaper, foam, etc)

So I started the system up today. Everything is assembled, I cant seem to get the new monitor/viedo card to work with the hdmi cable I am trying to use. I will have to troubleshoot that soon.
I am waiting on buttoning up the case, I need a true 140mm fan the scythe I bought was designed to fit a 140mm hole but screw into a 120mm spot. screwy.
All my wires are routed, everything spun up- all the fans...the noctua fans dont seem to have the cfm's of the scythe's I bought. but the noctua are silent. The scythe fans sound like a marine corps osprey on take off. I hope it gets a bit less when the case is buttoned up.
The CPU cooler was super easy to install. It is so flippin huge that I waited to install it last. (it was a real good idea as there was no room to hook up anything after it went in.)
I hope to get the fan installed and the case buttoned up in a few days and then I will try to post a few photos of a pretty stock but sweet rig.

Is there a PC-A05 that comes with the top blowhole stock? I really like this case but that $90 case doesn't look like such a steal when its another 70 bucks to get the top panel

I believe the newer revision (the one with F in it) has a 140mm blowhole stock. But the layout is different in that one. I would recommend just cutting a hole out of the top of the normal one, with a 4.7inch hole saw or a dremel.

i concur. i used a 4 1/2" hole saw, and it worked flawlessly. Just tidy up with a fine file, and you're good. Just tape up the area first to preserve the finish, unless you plan on painting it.

is the normal layout really that much worth than the inverted one?
