hello, i recently purchased and obsidian 650d and switched to bitfenix spectre 200mm and i realise that i hear a weird sound on the max speed of the fan...is it a problem with the mesh of the case ?or is the sound from the fan...
i read in older posts that there is an issue with the front mesh/grill of the obsidian 650d and how it sounds...
is there an option to cut the grill and my problem fixed?

cutting the grill can be done using a nibbler tool or a dremel, whichever you have handy. it will make the front fan less noisy and improve the airflow significantly

thank you very much... that was in my mind because the same fan attached on another case and the noise level wasnt the same...for sure in the next few days it will be cut and i'm thinking for a cover of the psu ...this case is very good but has some thing to work with in order to make it better.... i'm not really sure if the 200$ are 100% vfm... but the case has a very good quality....

anything else to suggest about making better the 650d ?

Since you already replaced the front fan, not really. Maybe someone else can chime in on this as well though.

One thing that you could do is remove the grill from the front with a dremel or nibbler like suggested to reduce that noise level.

You could also take apart an old 200mm fan like the default one that came with the case and use that as a spacer to reduce that amount of turbulence that is created by the grill in front of the fan.

As far as modding goes it's entirely up to you to determine what to change and improve. Just be sure to share your ideas and pics with all of us here.

Welcome to the forum and happy modding smile.gif

Hi,

Had this case for a while, after some initial problems, I really like it.

Interested in quietening it down a bit (whilst reducing temps), I have heard the front fan is quite noisy and it seems that way to the 'ear' test. I have though about strategically placing noise dampening pads in the case, so far I thought behind the optical drive bays, onto the blanks and placing one large one, on the inside of the 'rear' side panel.

1. Can anyone think of anywhere else to 'safely' place some, by that I mean in places were it will not impact air movement and thus temps too much?

2. I am on a stock intel cooler, and obviously, for noise and cooling purposes that will have to go.

3. Bit disappointed with the Corsair TX850 PSU, to the 'ear' test it does seem to be quite loud even when surfing the net. Can anyone shed light on this? it is a common problem with this model or am I hearing things?

4. My Sapphire 7850 is pretty much silent and runs cool so that's not the issue.

I'm just trying to get a system I can OC safely and game on, whilst not being sat next to a leaf blower. Obviously, there's going to be some noise.

At 'idle' I'd pretty much like a silent PC.

Thanks.

Hello! I just got a pc using this cabinet, did not build it myself. I only have the fans and fan controller it came with. But I fear I might have made a mistake as the fan controller on this cabinet can suddenly give up and stop my fans?

Have you experts any experience with this? Only a few cabinets have this defect or all of them?
post #4139 of 4826
The default fan controller isn't very good and has been known to break fairly quickly. You can get a replacement from Corsair for free if you want, but I'd recommend just getting a new fan controller alltogether (ie: something like the FC5v2).

PS: I love how you say cabinet, makes it sound so fancy biggrin.gif
