I present to you my Silent Monster,
Nanoxia Deep Silence Case
Asus GTX 660 Direct CU
Be Quiet shadow wing fans PWM.
FSP fanless psu.
It's waiting for the 6 3Tb Red WD drives and it will be done.
Under idle or burn, I cannot hear the beast. The graphic card is also very very quiet under full burn. I hear a humming when I put my ear against the case during game play, if i turn off the speakers.
Amazing what technology can do now !
The fan at the bottom is because the front fan will hit the hard disks and the air will be turbulent. The bottom one is placed there for uninterupted air flow.
Temperatures range from 35 to 55 under full Software burn.
Under usual burn, like transcoding, i never get pass 48
Cheers, comments and critics appreciated
This PC Case has modular hard disk cages.
So I added 6 hard disks. WD Red's 3TB. I removed the middle cage of 2. So there is a top cage with 3 disks and bottom cage with 3 disks.
I also added another shadow wings pwm fan on my motherboard.
The hole system is inaudible. I have only one main problem.
The passive PSU is acting as an intake hole, so dust is building up in this part of the system. All other intake fans have dust filters. No dust in the cracks, except of course around the psu.
My question is, can you build a customized dust filter and how ?
Update 2 :
I changed my 6x WD Red's 3 TB with 6x Seagate NAS HDD 4TB.
Vibration was reduced, noise also. The trick is not to tighten the screwdriver on the rubber grommets. Really really keep it loose, barely in.
The vibration is not so different from the elastic way.
I went to dmcifilter and made a custom filter for the intake psu.
I had to bump the fans to 700 rpm. Still inaudible.
I took an ikea cupboard, and made holes in the back so the hot air goes from the back to the outside, and the noise is contained.
