Side Panels & Vibrations
Hey! Before I get to my question, I'd just like to shout out to all the peeps here. This my first post....so yea, alright!
I just recently built a new computer, and everything has been going well. The tiny problem I have is that my computer sounds like a freakin chainsaw! It seems like the case I bought, Antec Mini-tower SLK 1600, picks up vibrations easily. It's a great case and all, since pretty much all Antec cases are, but these vibrations are just a major pain. I can't concentrate at all, plus it's nearly impossible to sleep with my computer on. So, what I did recently was just to take off one of the side panels, and surprisingly enough, the vibrations stopped. Now, my question is, can I just permanently leave this side panel off while using my computer, or will this lead to any type of problem?
Oh and just to let you all know, the side panel that I took off was NOT the one that would leave the insides of the computer open. The side left open is the one where you cannot reach in the computer, if that makes any sense.
