    Antec Noisekiller Silicone Gaskets

    Hi,

    Just wondering if anyone has used the Antec Noisekiller Silicone Gaskets for their PSU or case fans and if they have found them to be any good?

    I'm about to build a new system and debating ordering some of these to help keep any noise to a minimum.

    Bluetac would be just as effective, they are alright, but dont make a trumendous difference.

    Hi Noni,

    Thanks, I don't know how much noise my system will generate yet as I have to build it. I may find it is fairly quiet when I finally get it all together.

    Was debating if getting and fitting these now was worth it to save building then dismantling again.

    As long as all your fans are screwed in tight there shouldn't be any play for vibration.. Obviously the torque a fan produces dictates the level of vibration and 'air noise'.

    Think I'll give them a miss then, I had read mixed reviews of them but if they made a difference I was tempted to order and fit them at the time of building my new system.

    The only time I've had noticeable noise from vibration was soon cured with strips of paper folded up and wedged behind the culprit fan. But as aidanjt says as long as the fan is screwed on tight all should be well

    If you want noise isolation the rubber stand-off style mounts are better than gaskets. As for screwing it down tight, all that does is make the case panels vibrate, which is worse.

    What case do you have? What fans are you using?

    http://search.ebay.co.uk/_W0QQfgtpZ1...silencioQ5f777

    Look through there, the seller is one of the best. Really really great.

    If you do a deal outside of ebay with him he will give you 10% off .
