Semi-ghetto mod follows:


Turns out my WD Black's vibration caused the whole case frame to vibrate along, thus, creating a very annoying hard disk activity noise. Since the hard drive cage was connected to the frame, it was the likely caused of the extreme noise. Seems like Corsair skipped on quality here by putting a plastic cage connected to the case frame. I solved this noise problem by removing the cage altogether and buying a mounting kit as a platform for the hard drive to rest. Blah. I have yet to think of a solution that doesnt look.

Other than that, I returned my R9 290 this week as I encountered the same big cursor bug I had with the HD 7790.
I have used this cage with good success: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/1..._CFP53B.html?gclid=CM-XrvajgLsCFclQOgodH3UA1g

That might be a solution for you.

unless the bottom fixed HDD is your idea : corsair did it wrong ...

My Antec NSK3480 with a WD Velociraptor 10k rpm gave no vibration at all thanks to the silicone insert, but a mere 7200 make a whole case vibrate, that really annoying.





oh wait you mean the vertical frame alike the Fractal Design Core 1000 serie hu? ok corsair did really do it wrong ... even in my FDC1000 no vibration at all with 7200 or 10k rpm or in the Node 304 rack, i think it was a good idea to get rid of all i had from corsair ... H70 H60 AX750 Vengeance LP Red 1866, i just have 4x1gb XMS2 left but its from a time where corsair was still good (its only my opinion and nope i won't change it now ahah :D )
Corsair is an overrated and overpriced brand that a lot of people seem to get into for the eye candy of having a pirate ship on average quality components. Its not a bad brand but theres a lot of people that for their first computer ever pick all corsair components and end up spending a boat load for no reason other than to look like their sponsored (when in fact they are sponsoring corsair ;) )

I got my dad a set of 2000 mhz Cas9 1.65 v xms triple channel for his i7 930 (that does 4.3 easily, its a gold chip) and the stuff doesn't do the rated speeds. F-k that shit. I ended up just setting it to 1600 1.5 cas9. My hyper X 1600 runs 2.133 at the STOCK DRAM VOLTAGE!

hehe ... i don't use ODD on that tower and the mesh front is nice still the 4th 5.25" above doesn't have a slot in the front bezel but the 140mm doesn't cover it, i could use a 5.25">3.5"/2.5" for the SSD i zip tied on the side or if i need a 4th HDD without using the 5 slot 3.5" HDD rack that goes above the 3 slot one

I think he could do 4.4 or better easily. His cooling system sucks. Its an old chenming case with 80mm fans. The CPU cooler is a Coolermaster V8 with the stock fan inside and there is no airflow with the 80mm intakes so it isn't exactly the best setup. He also has his 3.5" HDDs sitting behind the fans blocking them and the fans are some dumb 10 year old sleeve bearing junk. Its a shame because his chip is so nice. I don't rememeber but I think it only needed like 1.2v for 4.2 ghz.

I have him at 3.8 as a compromise. I am planning on installing a rad grill with some 120mm fans on the side of the case as an intake at some point. Was gonna trade out the stock junk v8 fan for a H100i's fan, which pulls some serious air. My phenom is under a v8 with a h100 fan inside it and it idles at room ambient and never cracks 45*C at 4.0ghz. Coolermaster made an awesome heat sink and then cheaped out on the fan, brilliant move...

well obviously he could do a 4.4 its a 930, if a 920 can do it then a 930 too! and CM V8 not too bad, sad for the Airflow tho ... mine was under my usual HR-02 Macho (no compromise possibly the TOP cooler for this price range) and in the HAF XB

update my GR One with his 12 fans : silent turbo off, bearable turbo on 30° and less on idle 39°-44° on load (standard gaming) duh too bad i have a E3-1275v2 ahahah with a setup like that i wouldn't mind OC a bit (i can OC a bit but it's less easy, altho more fun, than a i7 K chip)

swapped to black hose while changing TIM, looks much more sleek and sexy I think!


You have half your PCI-E plugs unplugged?

Like all those companies that sell cases, put all the components inside, and then don't plug anything in so it looks nice and neat (as opposed to paying a guy who's really good at cable tidying)/

im good at it, just was really fed up of sleeving when I sleeved my psu. id rather have an incomplete photo than an ugly one, probably the same reasons the company do!

but I do agree, if companies are advertising/promoting a pc. it should be complete and its not like they haven't got the money to sleeve, cable tidy etc.
