Fan noise and cooling.....

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Between the Cooler Master HAF series, Storm Sniper, Storm Scout and 690 II:

With stock cooling which case produces the least fan noise?

With stock cooling which case produces the most fan noise?

With stock cooling which case has the coolest temps on average?

With stock cooling which case has the warmest temps on average?

With these questions lets just pretend it has "whatever" same system installed.

I'm seeking to purchase 2 cases within the Q1 of this year so your input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much!

I can only testify for the storm sniper. Great case. The fans push alot of air and are near silent with the fans on low (adjustable by the built in fan controller). Even on high, you can only hear the sound of the wind moving through the case (no fan noise). Really easy to build with and excellent cable management. Check my build log below for tons of pics of the storm sniper doing what it does best.

GL!

Dont know about all four of them but I have bought 690 II and haf932 for my friends in the past. I loved both of them very much. HAF was best in the cooling dept but was a bit noisy due to the 240/250mm fans. Though the noise was never too much to bother me. 690 II is smaller and looks very very elegant but in cooling dept. falls a lil bit behind the HAF giant.
Finally, never used the storm sniper but once bought the original sniper and was pretty happy with it. A great tower case with everything one can want. Falls behind HAF in cooling.
