ProfQ Posted July 11, 2011 Share Posted July 11, 2011 Finished quieting down the Norco SS-500 cage. Easier than I expected. Replaced the Zalman 80mm fan with a Coolink SWIF2-801 from QuietPC. The Coolink has a bit less airflow than the Norco fan, 22.4 CFM at 12V, but is rated at only 11dB. Zalman was 28CFM, but noisy. The Coolink is basically inaudible. Also opened the air sills in a couple of the empty drive bays of the SS-500. This seemed to help. My server is back to near silent. Hitachi 2TB holding at 4 Degrees above ambient (27 C), 30 minutes after start up. Hope this helps. Ramon Quote Link to comment
