The Gigabyte Poseidon (which i have), nice case, 2 120mm fans, 1 in front and 1 in back. they spin at 1000rpm and are very quiet, although i think i should dampen them from the case because it's from Aluminum and it vibrates. (how can i do that btw?please!). the front fan is just in fron of the HDD ...

case fans in a Gigabyte Poseidon and case vibrations

Hi,
I was wondering - how quiet are the 2 120mm fans in a Gigabyte Poseidon case? should i replace them or is it fine if i just devolt them?
thanks a lot!

wow, i know it's an old post, but what i want to ask is still relevant - do you need to ground the suspension? i have the zalman heat pipes and it's grounded to the case - beside being separated with rubber.
thanks,
Dan.

good price!
i know it might be a tight fit, but apparently the computer company that builds my comp' says it fits. I as you saw, thought it wouldn't fit.
i wouldn't ming going for the 7000 or 7500 but they didn't have it.
btw, how's the 7500? didn't see a review for it.

i have a question regarding your setup - is it ok that the Ninja blocks most of the rear fan? i thought of installing the Samurai Z and was a bit discouraged because it disturbs the rear fan in my Case.
thanks,
Dan.

Hi, I am also looking at the Zalman 7700. is it quiet? i saw the review but i wanted to know about any real experience with it. also, regarding the Samurai Z - do they both fit a Gigabyte 965p-ds3p motherboard? i don't see them at the Scythe and Zalman sites. I have an core 2 duo 6600. thanks a lot ...
