    CM690 Case Fan Stats

    Does anyone know what the stats are for the CM690 fans (mainly noise and airflow) as i'm planning to upgrade them to quiter ones whilst hoping to keep the same airflow. I've done a quick search but couldn't find anything.
    I know that they aren't that noisy but as i'm going to use my PC in my small home cinema and gaming room i wouldn't mind it as quite as possible.

    I would go for watercooling but it's expensive and i don't have the time to set one up (although price is the main reason).

    Plus if anyone got anytips on making a pc quiter i'd be very grateful. (Going to get some padding but not sure about HDD noise)

    They'll just be the normal Coolermaster PWM fans won't they?

    44.03 CFM

    You can probably get away with just a single exhaust fan on the rear of the case - disable the rest and make sure there's airflow into the case at the front.

    Turn it off when it's not being used

    Seriously, I have mine go to sleep after 5 minutes and it has a big effect on noise.

    Would this work for the main OS drive though as well

    Depends what you were doing - I guess probably not if you're caching things. I've not really had much success quietening hard drives any other way (not that I've hugely tried). Getting a hard drive that's quiet itself is another thing that I've noticed making a difference, but my HDD noise has mostly been an electronic whine that is quite hard to block (it's not a vibration).
