Default Help me make my computer silent



that's my computer atm, i'm running push/pull on the hyper 212 with scythe kaze-jyuni 1900rpms in a corsair 550d.

currently running a stable 4.3ghz on my 3570k.

i was wondering what fans i could use to make my computer silent without giving up performance?
taking out the 2 scythes for sure.

For Silent operation, watercooling is the way to go. Cost A LOT, but you get great performance with silence, or ultimate 24/7 performance with about the same dB as highend air coolers.

If money is an obstacle, then get yourself a fan controller. It will let you reduce the fan's RPM and dont cost a lot.

Noctua pwm fans (or non). Scythe gt's 91850 rpm is badass as well. Watercooling is another route that can be taken but its expensive

GT AP-14 are good with no fan controller, and the best way to reduce noise...hack out all the mesh every fan blows/draws air through.

actually, i forgot my case has a cover over the top to dampen noise and i don't want to take it off if i go with a h100 :(

i guess i'll go with a push/pull gt 1850 on the hyper 212

I use the gt's and they are silent at full rpm with great airflow. With that H100 thats a great combo
