Default Truly quiet PC case exist?

'Silent' cases out there are a joke.

Screaming video card sound is going to go straight out the open back venting on all current 'quiet' cases.

I don't see a single case addressing the sound exiting directly out the back.

Does one exist?

That's usually because in quiet builds you try to choose GPU's with the quietest cooling solutions you can. Or switch the cooling to one.

I don't think I've seen a case, or accessory, that tries to deal with the exhaust audio. Damn good idea though, you could build a sound trap, or diffuser, box or panel at the exhaust end of your case pretty easily.

something like a define R series is about as good as you can get. just make sure it's a solid side panel and not a glass one.

With the front door closed it's pretty silent for me, I just open it when I'm doing something that requires the fans to ramp up and that works fine. in that way it acts like many other mesh front cases.

not without water and or good air cooled video cards like on my 2080 ti Strix's newer video cards may need water only again as the wattage gets higher

a big case like a CaseLabs MAGNUM TX10-D or the single system version if they make it again helps alot also as it is big and has lots of air volume inside to trap sound

The great challenge between airflow and noise dampening and imo also style that isnt a plain spartan box.

There isnt much out there that covers all bases.

No, compared to normal not so loud stuff, let's be honest, the gpus of today aren't that loud.

Good air cooling isn't loud at all. But finding a GPU with a cooler that's quiet... bleh that just makes things harder these days. I got a little lucky, my XFX is pretty quiet.

Tell that to my 3090 that roared under my desk.

The 3090 draws 360~425 watts.
The 3080 draws 320~400 watts.

You have to dissipate that heat somehow. Because of the higher heat and wattage the 3080's and 3090's are actually louder than the 1080's.

One blower pushing air through a dense fin-array is going to have a more unpleasant sound than three axial fans, sound isn't just sound, the type of sound matters.

Also, out of the two, the 1080 is the one that is more likely to actually come close to a 100% fan speed during actual use, so how useful is the 100% stat?

I'm confused, in what we are talking about, what is a fan vs blower look like? Are you talking video card or case?

I stand by the fact that coil whine and electronic noise is a quieter issue to deal with than a 3080 pumping out 59.7 decibels of noise.

And when it comes to computer noise and reducing it, sound is sound. The decibels are what matters not the timbre of the sounds.

They put the fans at 100% to test the sound levels with the fans on each card. That way they can give people a better understanding of how loud a card is.

In this case, a 3080 is louder than a 1080.

It's part of benchmarking cards these days.

I'm trying to make a point that sound in a case is sound in a case. If you have a loud component, like a video card, then you need to try to make that quiet. The best way to do that is to put a water cooler on it. Mangler was then saying that you had to deal with coil wine even with a water cooler. My point was then that coil wine is a lot less loud than a video card pumping out 60 decibels.

Don't know where the blower vs fan stuff came into play. It might have been where he said that the 1080's are quieter than the 3080's which simply isn't true.

Either way, a custom loop is the quietest option out there to make a quiet case.

I never claimed that coil whine was louder than anything else, just that the quieter your rig is, the more annoying electronical noise get.




And that modern cards aren't that loud, which would solve destroy problem too.

I second that a water cooled GPU can be effectively silent. Just run the fans on low speed with a large enough radiator. Other than that you can run most GPUs with their fan profile cranked down so they run at higher temperatures. It will impact performance somewhat, but probably not more than about 10%.

A case in itself can't reduce the noise a fan/GPU cooler inside it makes. Not unless you go heavy with sound deadening materials. I actually did that back in the "bad old days" of the early 2000s when 120mm fans were a rarity and instead we had screaming 60mm fans that sounded like a high pitched jet engine. It's not really practical though. It's easier to simply address the actual issue which is reducing fan speed/buying quieter fans.

Yup, this could be done and still have decent air flow.

Just no one seems to have designed and marketed this apparently.

Yeah, it'd be pretty big but who cares, filing cabinets are big too and they still get used.

Some mufflers are pretty small. I was looking at one for the UTV recently, but they would still be long enough to bother. Unless you could build inside the case for a ways. Looking at my case it could go inside of it by about 4-5" dpeending on the cooler. Put in another 4-5" poking out the back or 2-3" with a 90 degree upswing it would be enough for some baffles and fiberglass. Id skip that last but itd still be a dust magnet yea...

Almost done the front on the case here I might look into this just for kicks.
