Looking for a great mid-tower case to house 7700k 1080ti, air cooled, no optical/mechanical drives, quiet operation, no price concern. - Page 2

post #11 of 13
I just finished a build exactly like the one you mentioned.

I am using the Fractal design Mini C no window, I also have the top vent closed for noise reasons. I have a Noctua D15S, A full set of Noctua Fans and a Zotac 1080Ti Amp Extreme.

Pros: I am using speedfan to regulate my 7 Noctua fans and the system is completely silent when idle.
There is room for large graphics cards and SLI however your cards will be tight up against each other.
There is room for 3 2.5" drives in the back.
The sound dampening is great, and I added even more.
When the fans ramp up under full load the system is cooled just fine. Full load 7700k @ 5.0 under 70c & 1080ti fully overclocked @ 80c

Cons:When the system is under load the fans must ramp up quite high to enable a proper amount of airflow.
The front fans specifically become very loud at high speed. Much more than the other fans.

Overall the case is great and I would recommend it.

I'll post a picture or two when I get off work if you are interested.

Sound dampening is gimmick. Read more about on www.silentpcreview.com.

The choice to be made between the Solid Side Panel and Window Side panel versions of the Define R5 lies in the additional fan mount position vs a window to show off your build. The choice is personal and up to the consumer, based on the build plans. In conclusion, both models will provide very silent computing.
