    CoolerMaster HAF 612 Sounds like a jet plane.

    So, today, my son and I replaced the cpu fan that came with the CoolerMaster case and motherboard with the CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO cpu fan, and it’s like night and day. This has to be the quietest my pc has ever been, and not only my wife but friends as well, say they can now hear us talk without all the noise. It really didn’t take that long to replace, but was the best thing we ever did to my pc. Awesome product.
  2. In, 2013 I built my own pc using the CoolerMaster HAF 612, which was one of the best things I bought. It was the quietest pc, I had ever owned. But, as of the last, 6 months or so, it has become very noisy, and sounds like a jet engine, taking off. This is with nothing running at all, and when I do start something such as downloading something, it gets even noisier. I'm wondering how I can get this pc to be as quiet as possible. All, of the fans installed are the fans that came with the case, and I've felt the internal componets, and they are just warm to the touch, so, I'm not sure what to do at this time. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance!

    Which liquid cooler is best?

    So, I'm about to replace the original processor fan with a liquid cooler, but am not sure which one. I have a HAF 912 pc case, with an AMD 8350 processor, and have been looking at the MasterLiquid 240, or the EVGA CLC 280 Liquid / Water CPU Cooler, 400-HY-CL28-V1, 280mm Radiator, RGB LED with EVGA Flow Control Software. Can anyone recommend which one is best for my setup? I'm replacing because of the awful, noise it has been making lately. Thanks in advance.

    Cool Master HAF 912 series Tower fan

    Back in 2013 I purchased a Cool Master HAF 912 series Full Tower, and everything ran great. Recently though, the back fan sounds like a jet aircraft. I'm wondering if the fan is starting to go bad, or if there was another reason for the loud sound? Also, when I start downloading, the sound increases. Any help would be appreciated.
