Thanks

People with water cooled Midi R2, how do you have your radiators setup? I have my front radiator setup for intake and my top radiator running as exhaust. I've been reading up on it and sounds like I could get some better temps by having the top radiator being an intake as well. I'm just wondering if my 140mm rear fan would be enough for exhaust.

Anyone know if I can throw a 280mm radiator up top in the arc mini? or am I limited to 240?

Can I solicit some advice? Been chatting with a guy who has a Define R3 who just got an R9 290 open air cooler gpu. He's running stock Fractal fans, one in front one in rear, and he needs to improve his case cooling. The hdd cage on this case is fixed laterally.

Could anyone recommend some fans he might pick up? He was looking at Noctua S12a for the front mounts which I don't think are the best choice. The stock Fractal fans will move to rear and top as exhausts.

I was thinking he might want a pair of high pressure 120mms for the front, since the hdd cage doesn't rotate or come out, and 140mms for side and bottom. But what fans would be cost effective for these mounts?

Edit, how about Swiftech Helix? Two 120s for front, two 140s for side and bottom, superb cfm and pressure ratings, cost $10-11 each. I almost got these for myself, but I had Noctuas lying around so I couldn't justify it.

I am running this kind of setup. I have a 240mm rad in the top and a 280 rad in the front. Both set to intake with a single 140mm exhaust fan. This positive pressure in the case and should help reduce dust.

Temps are not amazing water water cooling standards since I only have 2 rads and neither is a 360. But in benchmarks with the GPUs overvolted, I never go over 65C and in BF4 gaming with the fans at low very quiet settings I get 55C on the GPUs. The CPU runs 65-70C at 100% which is pretty much identical to my NH-D14, so no real change there.

I had to cut the metal over the 5.25" drive cage to fit the pump through, XSPC didn't design it to fit too well.

My new fractal R4 build is finished!

I had a AMD Fractal R4, now i switched over to the i7 4770k >=) i love the airflow in this case!!!!!!!!!! it looks a lot better with the side window on but i forgot to take pictures of it like that haha

post #10768 of 16139
Nice socks.

Do the fans on the top of your case push air out? Just curious. Nice rig overall, I like it.

I also like how clean valk's rig is. good job on that as well. everyone's rig here is so clean

So I went ahead and completely removed the HD cages and moved my hard drives to the back. Getting pretty crammed back there but its all about whats in the front... errr Anyway, since making the changes, cooling has definitely improved. GPU / CPU on average has dropped 4C on load temps. I have some GT AP-15's that I'll be swapping in next week, so I expect temps to further improve.

Plus who knows, with all this space up front now... I'm tempted to throw in a Monsta 240.
