Hello, i'm from Belgium and i'm new here
A few weeks ago i throwed my old macbook trough the window and i bought myself;
AMD 955 Quad
Asus GTX 560
500WATT Antec BP500u (very noisy PSU)
After a few hours of gaming; Crysis 2 on Ultra i noticed that my system was noisy as hell
First i bought a Zalman CNPS10X Performa for the CPU, but noise levels only decreased slightly ..
Finally i discovered that the PSU was very noisy, so i bought 4 Be Quiet Silent Wings fans, 1x80mm, 1x90mm, 2x120mm, to create a good airflow in my case
I screwed the psu open and i cutted the black and white cables, then i inserted the new fan, and wow, from a noisy psu to a ultra quiet psu (almost 0dB)
So i tought my pc was ultra silent but no... after a few minutes of gaming i could hear my GPU Asus GTX560 fan, it was not that noisy like my PSU but it was to much for me
By coincidence i found a topic about Cable Management; it's not my first custom build but i always did the psu cable on a normal way, but yesterday i removed the motherboard and i putted all the cables behind itThe result?
Overal temps are 10° cooler, airflow increased and my fan of my videocard was also cooler = almost no noise
I stressed my system for 15minutes and it's still thesame <3
I also have a video where you can hear nothing
but i will upload it later
