Semi-fanless. They're even recommending that in the manual that you should be using that. smile.gif

I just realized how restrictive the filters are on the front and top of the Define Mini R2.

I looped the Valley benchmark for thirty minutes at 1440P with everything maxed with a 4670K and R290 both under water and stock with an H220X. With the fans and pump at 100% the CPU got to 58 degrees and the GPU to 64 degrees. While still running I took the plate off the front and the top off the case. The temps dropped to 45 degrees for the CPU and 51 degrees for the GPU and held until I got bored thirty minutes later.

just an observation....

yup the filters are pretty restrictive, to fix this on the top side i cut a 120x240 hole just big enough for the h100i,
that way i still got the filter in there for looks but its not restricting my exhaust flow

i hate how the thing looks with no filters at all

Hello guys.

I'm new here, have been a long time follower smile.gif
There are some amazing cases in this thread.

I built a new pc a few months ago and I reused my define r4, and yesterday I received my arc midi r2 as I wanted better rad support for the future builds etc, but I'm a little disappointed as when I finished the build and went to put the dust cover back on the roof of the case, I found a couple of the clips broken so it no longer closers properly frown.gif my define r4 has been great has anyone ever had that happen to them?

Here's my recent Fractal Core 1000 build. I've always like this case for its simplicity and since it's so cheap, I don't mind experimenting with modifications.

It's my sig rig.

Added the second radiator to the H220X. I have 7 PWM fans and two 240mm radiators running full blast and I looped the Valley Demo at 1440P maxed and my stock 4670K and Asus 290 wouldn't go over 37/39 degrees Celsius. Arc Mini R2


Now to learn how to overclock them! Anything worth doing is worth overdoing!
