Define R3 140mm front fan intake

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
hey, all

i'm looking to order the parts for the system in my sig, and i was hoping someone might be able to help me figure out if some noctua nf-p14s would fit in the Fractal Design R3's front fan intakes. i know the mounts are stated as being 120mm, but so are the holes on the p14. i guess i just need to know if there is stuff i cant see in the most common angles that would prevent their mounting. i wold just watch a couple youtube vids, but im having to use my phone as a modem until wednesday afternoon... (min. res youtube vids take HOURS to buffer)

anyway, any help would be awesome.

The Noctua NF-P14 should fit as it uses 120mm fan hole spacing.

In this image it looks like 120mm mounts were used so it should give you a idea of size.

lol, thats the rear exaust. i was talking about the fans that blow over the hard drives.

i'm trying to figure out what i'd need to maintain positive or neutral pressure.

edit: nevermind, you've given me an idea to meet my needs. thank you!
