Thanks for the response
So basically my setup is
: Antec 900
: Soon to be Nvidia GTX 260 or something in that range (i plan to do aftermarket cooling as well)
: 10K RPM raptor, and 250gb storage Western Digital
Corsair T750, which is regarded as a really quiet PSU
I don't plan to overclock anything since this setup should play everything smoothly @ stock setting
I'm a bit new to making a computer quieter, however, I have built close to a dozen computers in my lifetime so I'm not totally lost =/
I considered getting a Fan controller, but i plan to leave the fans all on low setting consistently 24/7 so i figured i might as well undervolt all the fans to 7v. The reason is to make my rigg more quiet. I suppose using software/bios/hardware to control the fan will give me a better cool to noise ratio.
Honestly i'm not sure what to do. I for sure want to replace the stock Antec fans since i'm not much of a fan of Blue/Red/lighted computer cases.
Slipstream 800rpm @ 7V is <18 [email protected]
, 540 RPM, 18 CFM
Slipstream 1200rpm @ 7V is 21 [email protected]
, 890 RPM, 30 CFM
S-flex F 1600rpm @ 7V is 7V ~20 [email protected]
, 890 RPM, 23 CFM
S-flex E 1200rpm @ 7V is <19 [email protected]
, 670 RPM, 18 CFM
Based on this info i'm now leaning towards 1600RPM @7v cooling the thermalright HS and 1200RPM @7v for chassis fans as my setup.
What do you think?
