FT03 is a good case! Quite cramped and not at ll user friendly to access and do component R&R, but in a sane world once we build our beasts we shouldn't need to changing things .. especially in cases like this (no pun .. well maybe a little pun).

You should have good temps with MK-26 and DRP3. thumb.gif
Not that cramped because you can remove almost all side panels making things very accessible.......... minus the cpu backplate tongue.gif , and in the last 5 months I went through 3 different cases because ITX reasons biggrin.gif

The DRP3 did improve in about 3C in both GPU and CPU mainly because former D15 was messing with the airflow inside the case on load hahah

That's more of a PSU issue than a case issue. Have you tried those SFX-L PSU that silverstone, scythe, chieftech and sharkoon resell? I had one in my former FT03 mini and it was whisper quiet. biggrin.gif

I've heard lots of complaints (especially from bleets tongue.gif ) about the IPPC fans ticking at low speed. They are industrial (at least advertised as such) fans. Noise and ticking is not a problem in server rooms. biggrin.gif

I would suggest a better PSU. be quiet! make some very nice quiet PSUs, and the have very good customer support if it's ever needed too. thumb.gif

I have a mATX build in progress. Will be in a Nanoxia Deep Silence 5 case. Would rather it was going into a FT03, but it's what I have. Would also like to try the Evolv ATX or mATX case .. but don't have them either.

Hey man it's a seemingly impossible task to find PWM 140mm fans that have decent pressure and silence at low rpm frown.gif
Be quiets SW2's get the silent part sorted but no pressure to suck air in, noctuas had great pressure but are noisy frown.gif

Trying to decide if i should try 140mm EK Vardar F1 F2 or F3ER's now :|

It's a shame Fractal Design haven't update the Define Mini for years.

You know my answer TY-147A TY-147A Sq soon hopefully

I'm just lucky I can get whatever Ty-14x fans I want to use. Many peeps can only drool from afar. tongue.gif

Yeah -.- I had some TY's once...i can't remember which...in fact I still haev one in storage but the lack of a square frame killed it for me tongue.gif And I can't wait forever for the potential of TY-147A Sq wink.gif I need something now tongue.gif

Oh it was TY-140 I had

TY-140 is basically same fan as TY-147. Only difference is color. TY-147A idles slower at 300rpm and has a different PWM curve (it's not a linear rate). It ramps up pretty linear to about 1100rpm, they climb at a faster ratio to 1300rpm. This makes it quieter in normal use but gets airflow up fast when load gets hot.

I have 3 NF-A14 IPPC 2000 pwm fans in my Enthoo Pro right now (I used to have 8 of them when I was watercooled) and I have very good hearing since I used to be a musician but still can't hear the click click click click you guys are mentioning.

I usually keep my 3 intake A14's at 485~500rpm all day and if I place my ear 10cm from the case I can hear a bit of airflow noise and also some motor noise, but it is continuous and not intermittent clicking.

I can intead hear some clicking noise coming from my Phanteks 140mm at minimum speed when the motor gives the momentum to the fan but the IPPC have 3-phase motor and they shouldn't do it (and from my experience they don't do it).

To be honest I can feel some clicking coming from my A14's when they are below 320 rpm, but at that point i just turn them off biggrin.gif

Could you please better describe the clicking noise you hear and when it happens? So that I can double check to see if mine are immune or not smile.gif

I have never heard the clicking, either. Then again, my hearing isn't great anymore since I used to be a musician...... tongue.gif

I had the 120 and 140mm PPC on my rads for a bit. I removed them simply because they were by far the loudest fans I tried at 800 rpm and above.

Also, I have no idea why one would buy a cooler optimized for noise/performance with the included fans, then change out to significantly louder fans. It defeats the purpose of buying the DRP3 in the first place.

Good day,

thank you very much for contacting us.

I'm afraid that these noises are rather normal for iPPC fans. These fans use a different type of fan motor than our regular fans and unfortunately they're noisier at reduced speeds than our regular beige-brown fans. Running the fans voltage-controlled might help in some cases though.

Kind regards,
Noctua support team
