  1. Some quieter fans would definitely help. I've picked up a few Noctua fans for my system and have one on my Cryorig H7. The cooler you have is perfectly fine, but like I said it could use some better fans to deal with the noise. Cryorig's fans are pretty nice and quiet themselves, but don't push as much air as something like a good NF-F12 would (at least in my findings) Also having something that has some kind of rubber dampener helps too. The Noctua fans I've got in my case and on my cooler all have the rubber corners and help immensely with vibration noises Not helpful at all.
  2. Yup, no luck there. Just EVGA and MSI plates, as well as some EK backplates that according to their site requires their water blocks to use.
  3. Howdy all, Bought a blower style GTX 970 out of an Asus pre-built computer branded with Asus logos and I'm searching for a backplate for it. I'm fairly certain it's a reference design board, and I've not been able to find anyone who sells a plate that will fit. Does anyone know of a site that might be able to help? I reached out to Asus directly and have yet to get a response past "we're looking into it"
  4. H7 will fit wonderfully inside the S340 (as I have one myself) and it's a fantastic cooler with high bang-for-the-buck value. The fan that comes on the H7 is great, whether at low or high(er) RPM's, still super quiet and looks great too (if that has any value to you)
  5. I've got a Corsair K70 at home and a Logitech G15 at work, could definitely use a second mechanical for ultimate comfort and performance
  6. I'm fairly sure that it's just a manual trim command. Windows should be taking care of that for you
  7. As for the drives needing to be the same size, that's not necessarily true. You can take a 1TB (or more) drive and clone it to a smaller drive. However, the caveat in this is that you have to have free space available to do it. Best bit of advice I could give is: Backup the current data (personal files, save games, etc) and put them aside for a moment. Next, put in the new SSD as a primary drive, install windows. Once you get your programs and such installed on the new SSD (I'd stick with OS and small programs you use a lot such as Office and such) and then clean the secondary driv
  8. Morning all, Looking to pick up a second SSD for my system, this time to replace the storage drive on my system (games mostly) and while I love the Samsung Evo 850 500 I have in my system as a boot drive, I'm not looking to plop down another $150 on one. So I've been looking around and found the OCZ Trion 150 (480) and wondered what everyone's thought on it were http://goo.gl/jEhC4i - drive link through Amazon
  9. Sounds like it's seeking or something, nothing out of the ordinary to me.
  10. I've had one as a primary boot device (and program storage) for a couple months and I can't imagine going back to an HDD vs the speed and silence that comes from an SSD. The 850 Evo 500GB I picked up is so awesome, I want another one to fully replace HDD's in my rig
  11. Acronis True Image is a nice utility you can use to clone any drive to another. Depending on your HDD manufacturer, you can get a free (limited capability) version. WD: http://support.wdc.com/downloads.aspx?p=119&lang=en Seagate: http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/discwizard/
  12. Maybe you forgot to plug in a fan or something? Maybe your heatsink isn't properly seated? Did you apply new thermal paste as well?
  13. As an FYI, the WD Green series has been rolled into the Blue series and you can tell which are actual blues and which are greens by the last letter. A "Z" at the end will be a Green drive (also probably notable by the 5400rpm vs 7200rpm)
