Fractal Design Define R4 question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Im thinking of getting this case as of my my question is though its a silent case but can i do any over clocking on it? With default setup its only got one front fan and rear. So im wondering how well i could even over clock a 7950.

I have a Define R4 and the stock cooling is not particularly good.

You shouldn't have much trouble with a single 7950, but I would recommend replacing the fans if you think you'll need better cooling. With six good intake fans, I'm able to cool a 3930k and 7950 crossfire quite well, all overclocked, though it stops being a silent case.

FD fans are silent but there is almost non cfm, i have XL and cooling is a lot worse then R4. But if you change all the FD fans there will be no problems !
