  1. Yes, since the noise only come the fan? Do you know whether or not they are quieter than the fan in the stock cooler?
  2. I am thinking buying a sound dampening mat, or get a quieter CPU cooler.
  3. Yeah, I was assembling the PC, left a cable under the mobo, did it all over again, took a nap in the middle. Turns out poking around the back of the motherboard from the back of the case seems to do the trick. As you can see from the pic in the beginning, the audio ports and the I/O shield does not really align, that's the reason I wanted to take out the motherboard. After a while of squeezing and wiggling, I realized that the I/O, mobo, case standoffs cannot align together perfectly, so I chip out all audio side of the panel.
  4. You are right, the black color under the holes is the case. I feel like the shield is holding the board since the DVI and VGA is fitting so tight. But I feel it is too tight for just getting stucked in the I/O shield, the whole board feels locked into the case.
  5. Did you mean hold the mobo power connector and lift and pull away from the I/O shield? The crew behind the RAM has been removed.
  6. Yeah, for some reason I did not know, the motherboard was struggling to go in when I was installing it, I did it with after few attemps.
  7. Can you please give a more detailed explaination? Where it is stucked?
  8. It's only slightly, it's from the mobo, I have that even when I was installing it, does not seem like a big problem, but I don't want to go beyond that.
  9. No, I did not use all the stand offs when I first initially install it.
  10. This is a special design from GYGABITE mobo, the case does not actually have a stand off for that.
  11. I'm using a Cooler Master N200. I' afraid using more force, because I can hear cracking sound when I lift the from motherboard power.
