So many folks say that their power supply is super loud. I barely hear mine without headphones on. Once the headphones are on, I do not hear it at all.Anyone ever thought about taking the board and power supply out of the black outer box and putting it in a more conventional pc-style or simply bigger power supply case that has more ventilation and room to handle standard PC 120/140mm fans (which would be super quiet)?
I'm thinking something like those large OSW power supply boxes.
It's all very manageable in the AF power supply box. Just a board and power supply. I think it would be very easy to move it to new housing.
I can only hear mine if there is nothing else on in the room. My PC fans are louder, and have desk fans in the room. Maybe some are just really sensitive to certain sounds. Rattling drives me nuts, and I can hear the slightest rattle.So many folks say that their power supply is super loud. I barely hear mine without headphones on.

I am not sure how accurate the phones db meters are, or if there could be differences between phones or stand alone db meters. I wonder if we can just measure that. It could be as simple as a perception issue. I will measure mine if my meetings ever end, and post the db level.I'll try to take a video with sound the next time. The sound it makes is shockingly bad.
This may be due to age (2015) or V1 design or wheel mode (I use the max wheel mode, responsive w/peaks), I don't know.
If I'm honest, I believe I put up with this level of racket for 5 years, so that leads me to believe it's gotten progressively worse and was probably better when it was brand new.
I downloaded the NIOSH app to my iPhone SE (1st gen).I am not sure how accurate the phones db meters are
FWIW, getting feedback thru my G29 wheel for effectsYou have had tactile with a non DD wheel and now you have tactile with a DD wheel,
from your experience, would you recommend to change the wheel first or to go tactile first?
~55 dba at 2 meters before I turn on the speakers, and without the GPU fan kicking up.What does NIOSH report when everything on sim rig is running except AccuForce?
