Moire noisy than my old one, probably because of the side window fan.

Nice looking case you've got there.The difficulty is to try and teach the multitude that something can be true and untrue at the same time. -- Arthur Schopenhauer

Nice looking case. The handle at the top is slick and convenient.

That's a real nice case. Where'd you get it from?

I like how the top handle molds into the case so it isnt so squarish and boxy. I thought about buying that case a while back.

That's where it's coming from. Pretty cheap if you live in USA but for canadian customers it's a different story.
The price in USD is nice but convert it to CSD, add also the delivery which is around 40$ and i had to pay more than 40$ for custom fee when it got here. All together i paid 180$ CSD delivered at home. My other case is now sold to my roommate for 60$ so my new case is a bit cheaper now. Too bad that this case was not available here in Canada......i have seen something like it but without the side window and the fan.
I like the handle on the top, i carry my computer to different places sometimes and that's a good feature, same space inside than other mid-tower.
I don't know which fan is noisy but it seems that this one is a lot more noisy than my old one.
No fan in the front for incoming air
One blue led fan in the back (80mm) as exhaust
Enermax 450W 2 fans
Side Window with 1 led 3 colors fan
Smart Fan on CPU connected to the board
I like this case but i need to cut the noise so it's another project for my spare time.

Cool, thanks for the link BluesMan1. If that fan on the side came with the case then it's that or the Smart Fan thats creating all the racket. I've got the Smart Fan II and if that thing is turned up full blast, man that thing is LOUD. I've noticed that the fans that usually come in cases are fairly loud as well.

You could be right rrcn, i added the sensor to the cpu for the smart fan, actually my CPU is at 40 Celsius so the Smart Fan is not suppose to run full blast.
I was thinking about changing the side fan for another blue led one that i'm having left from my old case to see if there's any improvement.....i'll see if there's any changes in the noise and if it's still the same....well i'll try some other fan on my CPU heatsink.

I changed the 3 colored side fan for the blue one and it seems that it is less noisy but there is still place for improvement.

NICE!! I like the blue led fan better than the red and blue fan.
April 13th, 2004, 03:42 AM #15
I like it better too, the other one doesn't seem to add anything to the look of the case but with this blue one it's another story.
This is strange that on the other fan that i removed it is saying that it's a Low Noise fan from Evercool but it was a lot more noisy than my blue one.
I'm going to try something elso on the CPU to see if i can lower the noise again. I'm thinking on putting back the original AMD fan that came in the box, i have a Thermalright SLK 800 for the heatsink and that's why i'm using a Smart Fan Cool Mod without the Cool Mod actually. There's enough wires in the box and i don't want to have more of them

have you ever tried putting rubber washers on the noisy fan? or any other fan vibration dampening kit?
if you tried noise dampening stuff and if the fan's still singing then you might wanna change your fan. e.g.: CoolerMaster TLF-R82-E1
