Fractal Define R3 Temperatures?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am planning to get this PC:

Fractal Define R3
Intel i5 2500k
Asus P8P67 Pro
G.Skill 4GB DDR3
1TB F3 Samsung
Noctua D14 CPU cooler
6950 MSI Twin Frozr III Power Edition
OCZ 600W ModXStream PSU
DVDRW LiteOn

What kind of temperatures should I expect with the Fractal Design R3? Are the stock fans sufficient enough to keep the system both COOL and QUIET? I don't plan on adding too many fans as I want the system to be as quiet as possible. I will probably stick another 120mm at the front and that's it.

I built a PC for a friend with that case and very similar component to yours and surprisingly the temps inside the case were very good. I added 1 extra fan to the side panel just for a little extra circulation though. If your ambient temps are a bit warm then I'd recommend you do the same (just any low noise 120 or 140mm fan will do).

P.S If you can afford it, a SSD will work wonders
