He're my problem. My Gaming PC (although pretty quiet) is too loud for working at night. Current setup is an Antec 300 case with 4x120mm and 1x140mm fans. The fastest fan there runs at 1300RPM. Everyone say it's pretty quiet but its not enough for me.
I'm a programmer and I like to code at night, when everyone else is sleeping. I'd like to build something just for work. Let me know what do you think of this setup. Is my idea valid? Are just 2x120mm@800RPM fans enough?
mobo: mATX with basic capabilities
ram: 2x2gb sticks
drives: 1xSSD, 1xHDD, no optical drive
cpu: Intel G620 with integrated GPU
cooler: tower cooler without a fan
psu: I'm inclined towards Seasonic SS-400FL (400W fanless)
or Enermax Modu87+ (500W, 330RPM)
case: Aerocool PGS QS-200
fans: 2x Scythe Slip Stream 120mm SY1225SL12L
800RPM (1x front, 1x back)
If I'm right, these PSUs are an overkill for such a small setup. But I might use them to build another system later and they're available in Poland. The case is recommended for 150mm PSUs but those two are 160mm in length. I've seen a 180mm packed
into it so it shouldn't be an issue.
I don't have much experience with building silent PCs (I've constructed about 7 gaming setups from scratch) therefore any help is greatly appreciated. Nothing is carved in stone, I might even consider an HTCP. Your thought?
