  1. No, there is no fan attached to the vibrating side panel. I have 1x 200mm in the front, 2x 200mm in the top, 1x 120mm in the rear and 1x 120mm in the bottom. There are no fans attached to the sides.
  2. Thanks for your reply! Sounds like a good idea. The problem is, that the noise isn´t always there. Sometimes there isn´t any vibration for hours. And sometimes it´s there the whole time. It also doesn´t seem to depend on the load / fan speed, since i´m getting the problem in idle aswell. I´m a bit worried whether i´ll be able to identify the fan, thats causing the problem that way. But i´ll try.. Thanks!
  3. Thanks for your reply! The 3 new NF-A20 are installed with anti vibration pads already (also without any screws - rubber only). Aside from that i have 1 small 120mm fan at the bottom and one exhaust fan in the back without such thing. Both Noctua fans aswell tho.. Do you really think thats the cause here?
  4. Hi guys, i´ve noticed that my CM ATCS 840 gets noisy from time to time. It seems like the noise is coming from the left side panel vibrating (when i touch it/hold it in place, the noise stops). I´ve made sure that it´s sitting in place properly already. Do you have any suggestions/ideas how i could fix this issue and stop the side panel from vibrating? Other than that i managed to get the case pretty silent with 3 new 200mm Noctua fans, so this vibration stuff is really killing it for me right now.. Thanks in advance!
  5. Your best bet would be either RX 5700 or RX 5700 XT depending on how much exactly you´re willing to pay
  6. Noctua NH-D15 or BeQuiet Dark Rock Pro 4 are my recommendations for good air cooling
  7. Not neccessarily at the moment but if i go with a 2080ti equivalent in future i would probably push a 550W PSU really hard. Also (as far as i´m informed - correct me if i´m wrong) a PSU with higher Wattage will be cooler, quieter and more efficient, since it doesn´t run under full load at any time, right?
  8. Yes, bitfenix is available for me in Germany. Didn´t really hear much about that brand though. Gonna consider it aswell! Thanks
  9. Thanks for your recommendation! I´m gonna look into it. Probably gonna go with a bit more wattage tho
  10. Yeah thats about right. I´ve spent about 1450€ which is just shy of 1600 US $. I haven´t really looked into this topic thusfar so suggestions/recommendations are verly welcome I should note that noise level is really important to me when choosing pc parts. Maybe you got something for my needs?
  11. @Spotty My new Rig: Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro I7-9700k Noctua NH-D15 MSI RTX 2070 Gaming X 16 GB Corsair Vengeance 3200 MHz 500 GB Samsung 970 Evo Plus 1 TB Corsair Force 510 4 TB Toshiba X300 (4TB) Thanks for your advice! I´m not really looking forward to cable manage everything again but i might actually do it...
  12. @Spotty Thanks for your reply! Unfortunately i´m not running the same system anymore. Since this summer i´m with a completely new build (besides PSU and case), which is why i´m concerned about it. As you said, if i was still running my old system from 10 years ago it wouldn´t really matter if components get damaged... So your advice is to replace the PSU aswell now?
  13. Hi guys, i´m currently using an almost 10 year old PSU from Seasonic (M12D-750) which i own since the beginning. It is still working just fine but i was wondering whether it could become dangerous to keep running on this PSU (even though everything is working). I´m particularly concerned about other pc parts taking damage from it one day. Thanks in advance!
