Antec 1200 vs Norco 4220 with respect to noise level for a 20-drive build


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Anyone have any experience with Antec 1200 and Norco 4220? I want to build a 20-drive system but since I am going to keep the unRAID server in my office, I would like to make it as silent as possible. If going with Norco, I would be replacing the stock fans with 120mm x 3 and fanplate. I would also replace the rear fans with some silent ones (I am assuming 120mm will not fit back there).


I understand that Norco is loud even with 120mm fans but how loud compared to "normal PC"?


Any opinions either way?

If they are too thick you just mount them on the other side of the fanwall like I did,same result!

I'd go for Noctuas PWM or Coolink PWM fans.

I have:

Fans: 3x Coolink Swif2-120P PWM and 2x Coolink Swif2-80P PWM 'Silent whisper fans'

as these were in stock where I bought my Norco! Very happy with them


As they mostly run @ 50% the only fan you hear is the intel stock fan, they keep my case cool between 28-38°C
