Windows 7: Cooler Master hyper 212 plus?

18 Mar 2011   #21

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

If you put an exhaust fan in the rear of the case, you won't need to add a second one to the HSF. I would get another CoolerMaster fan like the one on the 212+, as they move a decent amount of air and are quiet. I have two of them running on two systems, one is an always on server, and I would call them very quiet.

Just remember that CPU cooling doesn't stop with the HSF, but relies on the whole system as well.

I stick my finger in the CPU & GPU fan and stopped it for few seconds.. i was WRONG the noise is not coming from the CPU fan or Graphic Card fan. it's coming from the Power Supply fan.
i can stick my fingers in the Power Supply because of the iron cover.. my Power Supply is OCZ-600W(OCZGXS). very disappointment i bought the CPU fan for nothing

Well, once you put a quiet 120mm exhaust fan at the rear of the case, you can overclock!

You can replace the noisy fan in that power supply. If you can't do it yourself, you can get a technician to do it. I'd suggest you get someone with experience to do it because fiddling with PSU internals can be dangerous.

Another alternative is to get a new PSU that is known to be quiet.

Your PSU fan is probably spinning very fast to try to combat the heat you are generating. It has no help from an exhaust fan.

If you want to buy a new PSU, start a thread and I can point you toward some very quiet units. You may not need a powerful PSU, depending on your other hardware.

There are PSUs with NO fan and there are also PSUs with fans that do not spin at all until the PSU is under a fairly large load. But you need help from an exhaust fan.

Another thing that can help as a last resort is to cut out the exhaust fan grill--the honeycomb structure on the back. This requires a Dremel grinding tool or some work with good tin snips. The grill causes a "whooshing" sound as the exhaust fan blows through it. If you get rid of the grill you get rid of the whooshing.

But do more investigation and cut the grill only if the whooshing is a major issue and if other methods don't properly reduce your noise level.

Wow. I was seriously suspecting the graphics card as I was reading through all the posts, until this last page. A LOT of PC parts claim to be quiet, and are in fact NOT even close to quiet. Of course, your perception has a lot to do with it. I have been in friends' houses where the ambient noise is so high, that a loud PC would seem quiet.

Anyway, good luck!!!

Does anyone know of a video to show which brackets to use for installing a Cooler Master Hyper Plus on a Phenom 955? I have an MSI 870-G45 MB.
