Bought one for my dad for his birthday, and almost kept it for myself. lol Awesome airflow, and just generally an awesome case altogether.
I bought that CM Elite for my girlfriend and I am keeping it now :roll:

I'm thinking about paying my old neighbor a few bucks to sandblast the Sniper logo on my side panel window. Anyone know if you can even sandblast 1/8" polycarbonate?

Here's what would go on there:

Anyone have a fix for fan hum when using one on the side of the CM 590? It doesn't matter what fan I put on there, even with rubber mounts, they all hum when intaking air unless I use the board to slow them down to 700 rpms or less. Though, if you put your ear up to the case, you can still hear a faint humming. If I flip the fan around and use it to pull air out of the case, the noise goes away no matter the rpm. I've checked and made sure they are not rubbing the side of the case (none are), so I'm not really sure what to do. :confused:

BTW, anyone looking for a 140mm fan that isn't a sleeve, doesn't cost a fortune, and is quite should look at these: Masscool 140mm ball bearing fans

I ordered two for the top of my 590 since I really didn't want to run a sleeve fan up there. Wasn't quite sure because it is impossible to find anyone who has used Masscool. Needless to say, they move a good amount of air while being just about quite. I can hear a faint tick from one of them at 12v, but I have to have my ear up next to it and be listening for it. They sleeve the cable all the way and even come with rubber mounts. For the 10 bucks or so they were, I'm very impressed.

Also, if anyone is looking for a R4 alternative that is a little slower: here. It is quite literally exactly like the R4 except they only make them in blue, turn a little slower, and are also ball bearing. I have it bolted to the hard drive cage where I had the R4. Neither of them made any noise, but since it turns a little slower it has less air noise (of course) than the R4.

Once I figure out this side panel humming noise on the 590, I'm going to get another to put there and a 120mm version to replace the exhaust. I'm really liking Masscool ball bearing fans if you can't tell. :laugh:



edit: BTW, anyone have comments on this HEC/Compucase.....huh.....case? :laugh:
I like the look of that R4 alternative and side panel hum is caused by flimsy panels

Yeah...etching, with the guys sandblaster. I'm sure there are a few different tools you could use to etch something. Here's basically what I'd want on there. It took only a few minutes in Paint to throw this logo together, but I'd make sure the measurements on the final version were even and all.

Yep...can be done with etching...or a lot of attitude. Get in touch with CyberDruid....I think he might be able to hook you up. :)

Sounds like a loose side panel or maybe airflow is being restricted funny.

I removed the mesh my CM 690 windowed side came with, and replaced it with a fan grill. It helped quite a bit. :toast:

i left it open.
the Xig is too tall for my case so it wont get closed..

its a bit better actually, before i have 2 more HDD and 1 more ODD,
cable management is a really PITA inside my case..
:shadedshu:
must change case, any suggestion with a CHEAP and reliable case?
for less than $40?
take a steel made standard case, and mod it to your needs, that would totally fit in your budget, and would probably look very custom, if youre common with craftsmanship :)
not the usual suggestion, but it works! :D

thermaltake V3, bought one for a friend and I was expecting a cheap feeling case. but its really solid and sturdy, plus has nice airflow. CAN fit any cooler I've seen too
I guess thermaltake is better than I thought, I'm getting one of those in a week or so

IDK about the price there but should be around 40$

Sounds like a loose side panel or maybe airflow is being restricted funny.

I removed the mesh my CM 690 windowed side came with, and replaced it with a fan grill. It helped quite a bit. :toast:
I did the same with my 590. That grill is seriously restrictive.

Yeah, and if you put a R4 in that spot. Get ready for some annoying air restricting noises. Sounds like a car window barely open at 60MPH. Soooo annoying. (Mine did this before I got a fan grill, now it sounds normal. Yay!)

thermaltake V3, bought one for a friend and I was expecting a cheap feeling case. but its really solid and sturdy, plus has nice airflow. CAN fit any cooler I've seen too
I guess thermaltake is better than I thought, I'm getting one of those in a week or so

IDK about the price there but should be around 40$
Yeah I bought a V3 case for $40 as my 2nd rig (cruncher) and for a cheap case it's not that bad.:) My only con is the little too no space at the top of the mobo.
