Sorry I forgot to take a picture before putting everything back in place, I'll do it later, anyways it's a bit of a mess the PSU is not modular and I zipped the 120mm case fan... I was wondering something : i have a maximal permanent usage of 20% of the CPU, as I said it's not warm anywhere, I'm always below or = 30°C, do you think I can remove one of the fan ? Which one should I remove ? the 140 or the 120 ? IMO I should remove the 120mm fan, put the 140 one in the left section so that the air blows through the 2 copper structures. I'd then zip the 120mm in the low-right section, as I did with the bad 120mm fan (it is linked to the PSU and the PSU makes a lot more noise so I won't bother removing it).Do you think the 140mm is enough ?
- it's in Ultra Low Noise - and don't forget that the 120mm one will blow a bit air from below.
->[First copper][Nothing][Second Copper]
I used the wrong screws for fixing the HDD, I thought this wasn't important as long as it's stuck but it now makes more noise like CRRRCRRR but in a lower frequency.
I will have to buy the silicone grommets, 4 screws (which one I don't know...) and the PSU at the same time.
Anyways thank you for help you've done much (too much in fact
), I thought I'd be done with the NHD but I will have to work on the PSU... I think I can do it all by myself no problem, I'd just like that someone confirms whether it's a good idea for the fan.
As for the sibilance (= excess of highs to me) of my sound card, I used a parametric equalizer to reduce the highs precisely, it gives very good results but I still think that compared to the MP3 player I'm missing something.
I tried explaining people but they think I'm a fool, my point is that while the quality is insane it's as if it was made only by engineers and not sound artists or such, or voluntarly left neutral for those high fidelity fanatics
, which is why the soundcard sounds weird to me. The Cowon J3 on the other side is warm = more basses and has less highs (plus there is some little drop-off). With headphones out however the sound is more interesting to me although IEMs have too low impedance and are too sensitive... (I didn't try plugging my speakers, apparently it's not good for them
But whatever I was just saying that because if by luck you have an idea (I thought of a physic external analogic equalizer but it costs at least 150€ and I don't know if it'll be of any use and how it works), oh and I was recommanded a few op-amps but they don't actually change anything or very very little effect, it's more supposed to change the quality - that's already perfect by the way...
EDIT : I have a lot of exams so I might not answer for a few days
