Which ones do you recommend ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I look forward for a build that will looks like this:

Intel Core i5 4670K Haswell 3.4 GHz

Gigabyte GTX 770 Windforce 2 GB

Seasonic G-650 GOLD

1 HDD + 1 SSD


Now, I have some questions:

1- Which case is better to fit a Corsair Hydro H100 in the top ? Define R4 or Arc Midi R2 ?

2- Is there a big difference between the Gigabyte Z87X-D3H and the Gigabyte Z87X-UD3H ? Which one would you chosse for this build ?

Thanks ! smile.gif

The define r4 and the arc midi r2 will both fit the h100 up top and in the front. The define r4 is a little bit shorter so it is a tighter fit but you can do it pretty easily.
This video shows what a define r4 can hold.

It really depends on what your shooting for, the define is a little sleeker of a case with some noise dampening and I believe it is a little more expensive. The midi has more cooling options and can fit larger radiators in the roof.

I am a huge fan of the fractal cases by the way.

The Define R4 can actually fit an H110 up top too, something you might want to consider since Haswell runs pretty hot.

As far as the differences between the D3H and UD3H; The UD3H supports a little higher memory overclock, has a better Realtek audio chipset, has an additional audio port, it has two more SATA connectors, and two more USB ports. The onboard motherboard features that it has over the D3H are; extra system fan header, power button, reset button, clear CMOS button, voltage measurement points and a dual BIOS switch.

I have the R4 and it is a extremely slick case. A little larger than I expected but it doesnt take away from it. It will fit the h100 up top.

Arc Midi has one extra fan slot up top but I dont htink that will really affect temperatures.

Note tho that the Arc Midi is for sale on Newegg. On the other hand if you want silent my R4 is extremely silent even right by my feet. So it comes down the looks, price, and silence. Pick what you want regardless of which one you choose you will be happy.

btw checkout the windowed R4.
