i have decided to modify my computer and keep the components, just change the case and fans.
So far i got
1. coolermaster hyper tx3 cpu cooler: working on 980rpm E8400 cpu. Satisfied
with noise and no clicking/ticking sound.
2. PSU - chieftec 550 - satisfied
- no clicking / ticking noise.
Sapphire 3850 512 Mb - i got accelero S1 plus (passive cooler). No noise at all and temperatures reduced over 20%. Though - i have to find a decent 120mm fan at low rpm to place it on.
And now - the case "case". I got Antec GX500 with 3 120mm fans and low/high speed settings.
The first one i took had audible clicking noise from top fans on high speed. I replaced it under RMA and the second GX500 had EVEN MORE CLICKING noise from top fans at low speed. So - Antec is out for now.
Now the questions:1. Which 120mm fan to buy THAT HAS NO CLICKING noise?
- Fractal Design Silent Series R2 silent?
- Coolink Swift 120mm?
- Scythe Gentle Typhoon?
2. Since im looking for a case, i have found Fractal Design Core 3000
usb 3.0 - comes with fan controller. Do 120/140mm Fractal Silent Series R2 fans have clicking / ticking noise
Corsair 200 R - the same question?
Or the simplest solution would be to buy a cheap Thermaltake V3/V4 case and buy 120mm fans that have no clicking noise
Thanks in advance
