Be careful using any solvent you don't want it on the wrong places.
Try using Q-tip or artist brush. Get it on the tape and let it soak in.
Finger nail polish remover is acetone and usually comes with an applicator.
Common rubbing alcohol will work. Be prepared to mop it up, some of the stuff is 30% water.

Yea, of course the obligatory warnings: don't smoke, no sparks, psu off, etc...

With those adhesives they use that industrial application and remove it with stuff like this

I am wondering just using masking trope to hold the plate in place until screwed down would work

Yeah - but you won't even need that - just the fact that when you put the bolts in - it holds it in place (and then when installing it) make sure your hand is behind, and you screw with you hand the ones - see my instruction video for more info smile.gif

Noise at LOW LOAD is identical.
Noise at HIGH LOAD is very much a big difference.
If both run at 1500RPM (which the antec goes to 2k rpm on load sometimes) the noise difference is quite substantial.

Now it depends, if you are a heavy PC user (and like me Fold) then you'll notice a difference, however if you are just gaming every now and then, I don't see the point in buying new fans as you will rarely go past the 65c mark on your CPU, let alone need full ramp speed on the antecs.

Antec Fans are too loud for me. Plus im already at 52C and I havent Oc'd my system. The Ap-45s I got seem to be on pair with the Antec fans, or maybe a bit lower. I'm just testing out a couple of fans to see whats good, was thinking of hitting the Ap120s next. I'll just give them a shot and see.
Gotta cut off my fan grill in the back that stupid whine noise is starting to piss me off now.

haha that fan noise - I had that too with my Fractal R4 - at the top. It depends on the fans.
The fractal fans ironically made this huge noise when they were screwed into my top grill. However the AF140's made no noise.
I won't be buying another Fractal case to be honest. Two cases I bought now have fan noise problems and/or HDD vibration problems. Of course I solved them both (ie my mum's fractal case I got rid of the screws and buffered the vertical HDD mount with a cable tie - with my PC I loosened the top AF140 to be literally hanging from the top, in order for it not to over emphasise the vibration coming form the HDD tray).

Right now - I'm at 65c, folding with 100% GPU and CPU usage. I can't even hear my PC - I love it (it sits 30cm behind my back) - only when I mute, not type etc can I hear the system running (lol)

I only get that whine noise when I'm drawing air from the back. Otherwise everything is fine. Last time I checked I got 66C with IBT, I'll get even more than that for sure when I'll be trying to OC my system a bit. My liquid temps rose today by over a degree today O.O. It is a rather warm day but I never realized it was that cold in my house.
Oh so you have the AF120s?
My system is a bit loud I suppose, but this loudness doesn't bother me at all.
