For the Fractal I have bought 5 140mm Cougar PWM fans (I removed all of the Fractal non-PWM fans), and I'm trying to decide where to put the Cougar fans (they will all be connected to a Swiftech PWM splitter). I got the Fractal version with the door fan because SLI gets hot!

I think I will probably run one of these 3 setups:

1) 2 front intakes, 1 side intake, 1 rear exhaust, 1 top exhaust (5 140mm PWM fans total)
Or
2) 2 front intakes, 1 bottom intake, 1 side exhaust, 1 rear exhaust (5 140mm PWM fans total)
Or
3) 2 front intakes, 1 side intake, 1 bottom intake, 1 rear exhaust, 1 top exhaust (6 140mm PWM fans total)

I don't have enough time to play around with different configurations, measure temps etc., so whatever I decide before I slap everything together is what it's going to be. Because of extreme dust sucking I'm thinking I probably will not run a bottom intake and I'll just go with Option 1.

I read that the door fan option of the Arc Midi used to not come with a dust filter, but mine did. I'm going to take it off and replace it with a DEMCiflex magnetic filter though.

I'm planning to only use the lower 3 HD cage and leave the top 5 HD cage out (and put 2 SSDs behind the motherboard tray).
The door version is not even needed with SLI. The window version would still give you good cooling.
Cooling with a dual140mm in front and bottom is more than enough. The lower drive cage is not tall enough to cover all of the lower 140mm fan.

I would do 2x front, 1x bottom intake, 1x rear, 2x top exhaust.
Could you return the case and get the window side panel?
The filter that comes in the front help real good with keeping dust out of the case.
As for the splitter, the best place to mount it is on the side of the optical drive bay. You have room for the plugs to not touch the side panel.

I don't need the window so even if I don't run the door fan I'll probably just stick with the solid side panel and put a dust filter over the holes.

The thing about 3x intake and 3x exhaust is that I want positive pressure, so I want more intake than exhaust. 2x front, 1x bottom intake, 1x rear exhaust, 1x top exhaust would work though.

Thanks for the tip on the PWM splitter location. I know that's something I'm going to spend a good amount of time figuring out.

I would go with 2x 140mm on top + 140mm in rear.
With having the extra cooling around the ram area pulling the air from the front 140mm will help pull from the GPU also.
I have 3 intake and 3 exhaust right now in my Arc Midi R2. Works very well to exhaust all the heat.

The psu will suck air out as well don't forget. I just Flipped mine upside down recently and didn't really see a difference but I have two Noctua 140mm fans running at 750rpm in front, one fractal in the rear at 7v, no top fans on my Define R4. This raised my temps by 4 degrees over my Antec 1200 which has two 120mm rear a 200mm top <--3 exhaust plus the psu for 4. and 3 120mm fans for intake in the front.

Again this switch increased temps by 4 degrees if that. More fans are not worth it coming from a guy with a loud ass case.

PS. I have a windforce OC gigabyte gtx770 graphics card overclocked obviously and a i7930 at 4ghz all on air. I'll recommend 3 140mm fans max to anyone over more fans increasing noise.. thumb.gif

Solid advice. I don't really want to go super overkill on fans / noise, which is why I'm going to run everything off PWM (custom profile I created in my UEFI BIOS). The GTX 780s are by far the loudest fans though, and there's not much I can do about that unless I put them under water. I'm hoping for a pretty quiet system for everything else other than gaming and benching though.

Haha awesome. That's basically exactly what I'm doing. Do you have a pic handy of where / how you mounted the Swiftech PWM splitter? Did you use the screws or the adhesive?

5x Cougar Vortex 140mm PWM (case fans)
2x Cougar Vortex 120mm PWM (on CPU cooler)

You've got Austrian fans in the Swedish case, I've gone with the German fans in the Swedish case.

I use the screw and nut that came with the splitter. Use the holes for the OD.

Reason I got Noctua is that there is no PWM tick at any speed.
I had the cougar fans in this case. I returned them, due to the annoying tick they made at 30-40% fan speed.
Also it was worse when the fans were mounted horizontal.
I suggest you use the stock fans on top and bottom and use the built in fan controller.

Yea I've heard of the Cougar tick, but I also read that it had been fixed. So I decided to chance it since I am in love with the Cougar fans on my CPU cooler. They are flawless (no motor noise at all that I can hear) from 800-1500RPM.

Thank you very much for the pic! +rep

That is where I have my splitter and the Noctua are quiet.
