4 out of 5 eggs Who said this case is loud?? 01/30/2013

This review is from: RAIDMAX AEOLUS ATX-818WB Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros:

Good cable management; nice tool-free installation mechanism for 5.25" drives; good air flow and predisposition for quite a few extra fans (if needed);
aggressvie/futuristic look. Overall it's a nice case for the price.

Cons:

If I really have to be picky, maybe a little flimsy, but it didn't bother me in the least.

Other Thoughts:

I was a little leery about this case when I read Generalkillmoe’s review (just a couple of reviews below mine), because I was ordering parts for a customer, and I wanted to make sure I would deliver not only a fast and reliable machine, but also a very quiet one. Generalkillmoe complained about the loudness of this chassis, but looking at the specs I couldn’t quite figure out how a chassis with only one 120mm fan could be loud. So I trusted my thinking and purchased it anyway. Maybe I should mention that I have been a system builder for 24 years and I have well over 3,000 custom-builts under my belt (it includes high dollar custom-built servers for the U.S. government). Outcome: there is absolutely nothing loud about this chassis; nothing whatsoever. The 120mm intake fan spins at roughly 1,600rpm and is extremely quiet (just as I thought). Generalkillmoe is obviously inexperienced and doesn’t understand that the loudness he claims to experience is coming from his CPU fan or from some other auxiliary fan that he MAY have added, but definitely NOT from this chassis. Generalkillmoe, you may want to check the settings in your BIOS, and enable Q-Fan control (if you have an ASUS board), or whatever feature your MoBo has for fan speed control. One more piece of advice: restrain yourself from writing reviews based on your limited experience. Most Newegg customers base their purchases on fellow customer’s reviews rather than the manufacturer’s specs, and reviews like yours can easily steer an IT pro in the wrong direction.
