Has started making a rhythmic clicking noise after 4 months that is unbearable10/9/2014 6:54:41 PM

Pros: It was quiet for the first month, now it makes a rhythmic clicking noise as if the blades of the fan are unbalanced and rubbing against some other part of the fan or heatsink. That said, the product seems to be high quality and the packaging made it feel premium

Cons: Now it makes a rhythmic clicking noise that motivates me to turn off my computer at night so I don't have to listen to it. Extremely frustrating. I just rebuilt my computer 4 months ago and I don't want to tear it apart again in a mini-ITX case just to replace the heatsink.

Quiet and cool2/17/2008 12:54:39 PM

Pros: The only noise I can hear coming from my case is from the tiny 5400RPM chipset fan. I plan to replace my motherboard with something that uses passive cooling and expect I will no longer be able to hear the computer. Installation was a pleasure. Everything went well and the cable management was good enough for me to clear plenty of space in the middle of the case. All the ports and buttons on the top work fine. Motherboard is flush with the back of the I/O panel (wasn't the case in my ULTRA aluminus, no pun intended).

Cons: The replacement of all the fans using the rubber vibration isolation.. things.. was a real pain. You cannot install these things by pushing the fan on. You have to pull on the rubber to make it thinner and then slide the fans on. For the bottom fan, I could not pull on them because the fan was stored in a little block. To install the fan, I had to tie a piece of string to the end of each rubber nail thing and pull on it as I pushed the fan down. It was incredibly awkward and took me a couple of hours, but the results were good. The case fans that come with this case are wimpy. They don't make much noise but they don't push much air either. If you want a replacement that's just as quiet and moves more air, I recommend the NF-S12-1200. The air flow is weak, but it keeps my Q6600 @ 2.8GHz 28c IDLE 41c LOAD using thermalright ultra extreme without a fan. (I am still waiting on two NF-P13's for push-pull configuration.)

Overall Review: Fantastic quiet case. Only reason you might not want to buy it is if you have many harddrives or high RPM harddrives, because for some people it gets very hot in that part of the case. My specs: XFX 680i LT SLI Visiontek Radeon HD 3870 2x 250GB Seagate Barracuda 7,200RPM 4x NF-S12-1200 Noctua 120mm Case fans 2x 1GB OCZ memory Ultra 600w Power supply

Great performance, painful setup2/16/2008 10:57:21 PM

Pros: It works well. I don't have a fan on it and my Q6600 is running 40C load and 30C idle in a cosmos 1000 (stock fans replaced with noctua fans, nf-s12-1200), not OC'd. I have it mounted horizontally but plan to point it towards the back of my case when I receive my 2 NF-P12-1300's and put them on the heatsink in a push-pull configuration. It's amazing that something with 0dB of noise (no fans) can cool so much more efficiently than stock cooling.

Cons: It's a pain in the boot to get the screws in. Good thing the cosmos 1000 is such a roomy case, or I wouldn't have been able to do it with my huge hands.

Overall Review: The noisiest thing in my case is my chipset fan, which is absolutely ridiculous. It's probably about 30mm and runs at 5400 RPM. Nobody get a 680i LT SLI from XFX if you're going for silence. It's a complete pain to have to replace the motherboard to get that 0dB silence after already rebuilding it in a new case after replacing 4 fans in the case.
