Looking for a new case: full tower+silent

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Should be a full tower (mid tower would be Ok too) and I would like it to be silent - I really don't like noisy PCs :D 

Budget would be somewhat around 200-250€. Ideas?

Two ways to make a quiet computer: use quiet parts and/or have a quiet case.  


The thing that makes noise with computer parts (other than coil whine which is random and uncontrollable) is fans.  So low heat parts makes low speed fans. It can also make low speed computers, depending.  LTT just didn’t a thing on undervolting you might find useful for that.

 

Quiet cases are cases with sound dampening.  Sound dampening is a very detail oriented thing, and cases can’t be airtight so it’s effect is limited.  The tends make cases that are heavy, expensive, and have limited airflow, which often doesn’t matter for quiet parts.  There are cases specifically designed for noise reduction.

 

theres a company called silentPC.com that specializes in this stuff.

 

there are cheapo way to quiet a lowball case.  My personal favorite is rubber backed stair tread carpeting mats.  They’re heavy as hell though.


Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

What is the rest of your build?

 

Indeed the Fractal Design Define R6 is a nice, quiet case. You can even replace the stock fans with some premium (even more silent) Noctua's for on your budget.

Outside of being quiet, any other requests for features?  Have a few options, but would like to narrow it down for you.

*slaps roof of 730T* This bad boy right here can keep cool even a threadripper with two VII cards and you won't even notice it has fans.

 

shame they don't make it anymore, why?  I don't need sleep, I need answers.
