Reducing fan noise?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

I've an issue with my rig.... It's too noisy...

I've got a Cooler Master CM 690 II Advanced case, with the side window and here's my setup:

Front: 1x Stock 140mm LED case fan - intake - (http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=4395)
Bottom: 1x Stock 140mm case fan - intake - (http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=123)
Side: 1x 120mm LED Cooler Master R4 - intake - (http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=4355)
Rear: 1x Stock Corsair H50 fan - intake
Top: 2x 120mm LED Cooler Master R4 - exhaust - (http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=4355)

(I have the top two R4 fans connected to mobo fan headers. The H50 fan and pump to the mobo CPU and PWR header. The rest to fan/molex)

My mobo has 1x PWR, 1x CPU which are both for the Corsair H50 fan and pump and 2x fan headers. Oh, and I don't have a fan controller and I am unable to get one atm...

Help? Suggestions?

Thanks
Gaming Rig

Replace those 120mm fans with GT AP-14 (also get rid of that Corsair H50 fan and replace it with either AP-14 or AP-15 doing push/pull), buy some rubber fan mounts / fan gasket and use them, get a fan controller later on.

ehume has a guide to lubbing up your fans. It's a quick fix that may work.
