Re: silencing norco 4220 with fake hdd blocks

Keeping the fans at 900-1000rpm could achieve just as much as filling the front of the case with blocks and would still be enough to cool any drives installed (even 20 if you add a forth fan).

Re: silencing norco 4220 with fake hdd blocks

i got 1 hdd in 20 tray hdd. yes, 3 noctua full speed and 2 arctic cooling pwm(lowest speed most of the time).

it wasnt for me, so it must be install and forget. i cant expect the end user to manually dial down fan speed.

Re: silencing norco 4220 with fake hdd blocks

i believe the noise is not conducted through mounting hardware. noctua provided rubber gasket for their fans. most likely the noise is from air restriction because of dense wiring near air intake(unavoidable). its true that using hard material will bounce back noise, but that is actually my intentio...
