Make my PC more quiet.

EG!
 Share

My pc is a little over 2 years old now and I want it to be more quiet, I have my 2 nzxt stock case fans and my cpu cooler is a Thermalright True Spirit 120M and PSU is Corsair V550.

I like the aesthetics of an NZXT kraken but could just go air cooling too and which fans should I get?

Is it gathering dust?

 

Also find out which part is the loudest first. Seeing that you have a Gigabyte graphics card I'll put that on my suspect list.

Best bet is to swap fans for something like some Be Quiet, Fractal Venture, or some Noctua NF-A12x25s (if you are OK with the dirty brown)

My Gigabyte 1080ti is the quietest graphics card I've had in a long time... Excluding the GT710 in my NAS, but that doesn't have a fan so it's a little unfair to compare :D

 

Figure out what part(s) are making the noise and then you can look at options to make the system quieter, including replacing the part(s) or adjusting fan profiles to lower the RPM. Anything with a fan or moving parts is a likely culprit for noise. Stick your ear up near your GPU, CPU Cooler, case fans, PSU, and HDD to see what is making the most noise. You could even try unplugging some of those parts, such as unplugging case fans or unplugging the HDD to see if the noise goes away when they aren't plugged in.

PSU is Corsair V550.

PSU: Corsair 550W 80+ Gold 

Corsair doesn't have a V550, and the VS550 is not 80+ Gold. Do you mean the CoolerMaster V550 80+ Gold?

I can hear my Gigabyte RX 470 and GTX 1060's load level with my ears (no case at that time), so I guess different model and fan counts do matter

I suggest adjusting your fan curve (for you're pc fans) in the UEFI. and the GPU fans in what ever utility you use (msi afterburner allows you to do this with any card equipped with (a) pwm fan(s).

You could also get a more damping case, or do what the others suggest, as they are great suggestions

Which components are too noisy? If you haven't pinned the culprit for noise, you can use your hands to stop fans until the noise goes away to isolate which components needs to be quieted.
