Arctic P12/P14 vs Bequiet SW3
I've just signed up because I've been reading these forums a lot lately.
I've got two irritating noises coming from my PC which is in a Meshify C that I want to resolve, the first comes from the OEM cooler and I've ordered a Bequiet Dark Rock 4 to replace it.
The second is a constant resonating noise that seems to go up and down in pitch, I am certain its because the fans (2 x Arctic P14 intake and 1 x Arctic P12 exhaust) mount the frame directly to the chassis
I also have pretty bad OCD and now the case fans need to match the cooler, I think I'm just going to get a low speed Bequiet Silent Wings 120MM PWM exhaust and leave it at low speeds to keep noise down but in terms of 2 x High Speed 140MM Bequiet Silent Wings intakes are these a complete side grade compared to the Arctics, maybe even a slight downgrade considering the price or have I misunderstood and they are better than the Arctic's?
I do like the Arctic fans, they look and feel a bit cheap but they do the job well, just that resonating and the need to have everything match getting the better of me, the other alternative was to get all Arctic Bionix P series and a Freezer E34 Duo but Ti'm not sure I like the look of them, bit too gamer style for me or is it worth getting over the looks and going for a full Arctic Bionix/E34 setup? I can cancel the Bequiet Dark 4 if need be
Thanks for any help and advice
