    Yeah crysis 3 is nuts, right now I'm at the end of the game but it seems to crash for some reason when it goes in to the end cinematic and I don't know what is causing it lol. Appears others are having the same issue.

    See if quitting MSI Afterburner helps (if you're even using that). It was causing crashes for me, using PrecisionX now.

    Put the blue low noise adapters on my CPU cooler today, kinda surprised at how much difference going from 1300 RPM to 900 RPM made. I was expecting it to be quieter, but perhaps not this much quieter. Hardly made a difference to P95 load temps too.

    Not that I'm complaining.

    Choo Choo. Flatrate.



    Still no way to solve the problem with my Wii U, guess I'll just use it as a bookholder-thing.

    Bah Crysis 3 is great and all but I've been trying to get vsync to work and it doesn't want to, I even tried the cfg file for the game. I have everything maxed but the AA with is 2xMSAA I believe and in single player I get anywhere from 50fps to 100 peaks and in multiplayer it's 80-120fps. Problem is I have a 60Hz monitor and the tearing gets annoying and even foricing it in CCC does nothing.

    Quite honestly, no HAF X is ever going to approach silence. Ever. (unless you cover the entire inside of all mesh and all panels with noisedampening and don't use case-fans)
    A HAF X is loud. Always. Noise from the internal components leak and it will never come close to a quietness.
    Run the fans at 40%? Still makes noise.

    Get Noctua's NF-F12 and you'll be hard pressed to find noise though, to be fair. I'm having trouble with the H100i's pump or the HD 7970's fans being more overpowering, though after some looking around I'm still undecided on which is the big sinner.

    He's a drummer.

    I'm not generalizing or anything, but I knew a jazz drummer IRL and he had a completely different standard to what is considered "quiet" or "loud" despite him usually wearing ear protection.

    I was having the same problem. I discovered that it was my PSU spinning up it's fans and the same day the AX860i was in the mail. I hate fan noise, it drives me insane :/

    I can always hear my computer.

    But good God, if I was so nitpicky that I couldn't stand the slightest of hums, I'd be about ready to kill myself, because I'm sorry but you're always going to hear noise, no matter where you go. If you don't, well, you have other issues, and not just the ones about being deaf - there was that one room where they took out all of the things that would produce noise and people were literally going insane.

    Also, I need noise to sleep. I don't sleep in the same room as my computer, two floors up and on the other side of the house - what I am used to at night... is a fan's motor. Ceiling fan, to be specific. I was raised hearing noises whenever I slept, thus I need it.

    So yes, I know my HAF X produces noise, but if you think a HAF X is loud, good God. What would you say about some garbage RaidMAX case with 3 80mm fans blazing at max? You surely know that would be several times louder than the HAF X.

    Paaalease...

    I swear. I'm going to record my computer with the Samson M15 mic (so we have something decent, and then record other noises, maybe record another computer - my parents' Gateway should do... and then there will be no more arguing.

    In comparison to a fully sound-proofed Fractal case? No duh In comparison to almost everything else? It's quiet, barely noticeable. I've heard plenty of other things, computers and not computers, that are far louder than my computer.

    If my PC was totally silent, I'd be paranoid that something had broken. I want at least a bit of noise.

    Well you see, my HAF X is just about 2 dB louder than this. See? I told you it was quiet.

    It also depends on where you sit in relation to your PC. My PC sits on my desk literally ~2-3 feet from my face, sending vibration/noise through the desk. Yours sits on the floor at ground level (I think...) partly softened by the carpet and not touching your desk at all.

    My computer sits 35cm from my face. I have to have it silent, a little hum is alright, it's what I call "good-sounds". If I eliminated all sound it would almost be like all the times my kid stops breathing during the night. I stop breathing too, anticipating his resumed breathing.

    Main reason I want it as silent as possible is that me and the gf share an office in our house that is about 9sqM. It's tight and noise can quickly get annoying. I just started unpacking all her parts for a Fractal Define mini build and have installed MB with the H60 already. Getting ready for 45 minutes of building/cable management.

    God damn man. You've seen pics and videos of it where I've specifically said it's on a coffee table my great granddad built (very heavy solid wood) and you still forget! Sheesh, get that checked.

    It's about 2 feet from my head.

    Computer is down . After troubleshooting I believe it is the Motherboard. The computer won't even start no matter what I try. PSU works fine and I tried shorting the two power pins to ensure the power button wasn't the culprit and still nothing. Weird thing is the Motherboard green led light is on so I know it's getting power. I'm going to try an RMA and hope that's the issue.

    You've been able to run 6 displays off an AMD card for donkeys' years, but that's more for showing off, not actual gaming.

    For some reason AISuite fan controller forgot that I had set a custom fan curve. The case fans are now running at ~600 RPM, and will do so until stuff gets warm in there. The decibel reading software on my phone says it is about 32db in front of the front intakes, and 30db where I sit.
