    Default help my case is noisy,....

    I have a gigabyte 3d aurora

    great case,

    now a bit big for my needs, its huge.

    trouble is, it rattles like a tin of nails?

    what do ya good peeps reckon is the cause?

    its quite thin aluminium.

    so is it the opticals vibrating?

    psu?

    hard drives?

    I have a passive cpu cooler, and my gfx card is next to go passive....

    I have a theory....

    its a tooless case....

    do peeps think the retainers on these are less than ideal, and simple screw retentions would secure and vibrate less?

    any other ideas?

    thanks

    I'm sure that is the issue but its the fans in the case causing the initial vibrations. Adding a simple silencing kit to the case may help.

    The biggest offenders will be your drives. The thin aluminum doesn't help either. They tend to be a bit noisier because of the thin metal.
