Fractal Design Define R4 vs Corsair 750D

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello!

So I'm currently building a new rig (http://www.overclock.net/t/1589926/my-third-build-third-time-here-looking-for-advice).

I'm wondering about these two cases, I realize they are different size and price range but here are my considerations. I need a case that will hold gtx 970/motherboard/i7/SSD/SSHD/PSU, I don't plan to go SLI anytime soon and I would really enjoy a mid-size tower (as I'm planning to move to a new apartment in the next year). Here are my questions.

1) Main concern: Gtx 970 overheating due to poor air-flow. Raccomandations? Watercooling? Max N of fans, 120 or 140?

2) Noise, I hear noise cancelling (sound proofing) makes overheating problems even worse, should I just invest in a full tower and sound proof that or keep the R4/R5 mid-tower with sound proofing?

Please keep in mind I will be doing a lot of gaming, just consider myself a future streamer (possible 24/48h straight gaming) just as an example, how will a mid-tower r4/r5 series with sound proofing performe against a 750d corsair full tower? Any and all advice or extra-info would be greatly appriciated. I would love to stay away from water cooling but should I consider it given the parameters?

Thank you

both are great options but hands down the 750d..has more expantion options (watercooling in the future)...more airflo due to more intake and out...
r4 is good...but i duno...to small for my liking...but yeah...hope you get what you like:thumb: is there a build log for this ?
