Wow !! Very nice PC-A05N build. Actually I think it's the best I have seen yet. I do check those on a lots of sites since I own this case too. I'm also curious on what you did with the fan that is used to cool the hardrives in the front. Did you removed that one too ? I'm certainly getting a lot of ...

What I don't get is why you closed all holes with duct-tape, reversed your intake fan into an exhaust fan, and made a downwards airflow at the CPU.

Decent build, though how does the PSU get air with all those cables/ drives on top of it? There is ½ inch space between the lower HD and the PSU. Thats the biggest problem with my build atm. I removed that lower HD since I did not needed it anymore and it helped a little. Even with it off, its har...

My quiet Air cooled Lian-Li PC-A05N (with pics)

About a year ago, I got tired of that noisy PC that was in our living room. So I started researching on how to silence computers and slowly started buying some parts. One of my goal was to have the computer inaudible when idle, or rather when I was not playing a game on it. I had no problem with the...
