Recommended Posts

What are some of your best tips you have found that make builds quiet?

What worked, and what didn't work?


(Assume you are using a generic case to begin with, a Corsair 250D, for example. Not a "silent case")

What worked:

Buy 2 200mm fans and 2 enermax silence vegas fans ==> SUPER QUIET SYSTEM


What didn't work:

Buy corsair fans = CONSIDERABLY louder when on idle compared to the above PC on load


Use silence adapters and/or buy a fan controller?


Set a fan curve for both CPU and GPU fans

None windows cases, buy some sound dampening foam and stick that to the side panel.

Never turn it on?


Or some good quiet fans + a fan controller 
I guess a fractal case is good too. My friends Arc midi is damn near silent with the stock fans
