I´ve finished a recent build which has two CM fans (top - rear) as exhaust and two non-branded A.K.A cheap fans in-front as intake.
The temps with the two front fans cooling the two HDDs are:
(min on idle and max under stress)
- CPU: min: 35, max: 60
- HDD: min: 29, max: 32
But the case has a lot of vibration (you know, when you put your fingers on the chassis and it begins to do a humming noise and you feel the vibration).
Without the two front fans:
- CPU: min: 32, max: 53 (I think the thermal paste is sitting in)
- HDD: min: 27, max: 38
And the case is vibrating a lot less (+ no humming).
Should I keep the front two fans to have lower HDD temps or remove them to reduce the case vibration?
