New Update. I love it.
post #11952 of 16057
I'd like to officially join the club. I have an R5 and I must say this case was awesome to work with. My cable management was better, still not perfect. It is super silent I can barely hear it. Not sure how to upload pics, on my phone but I definitely will when I can.

I can't vouch for those Akasa's but I sure would like some and was looking at them, posted the Viper version here before, that's the yellow one that runs faster at max than the black version, otherwise they are the same shape and all just different max speed.
AK-FN062 Apache Black
AK-FN063 Viper
AK-FN073 Viper R same as dimensions as TY-140, 150x140mm so unless you cut it down it won't fit into spaces that are restricted to 140x140mm from the sides. That's the one I would put on a heatsink instead of TY-147 (same as TY-140 but black and white).

Unfortunately prices vary per market and here Noctua NF-P14s costs almost the same. Which is 1200 or 1500rpm. Somehow in specs from manufacturer it pushes more air but has less pressure.
I would still take the Akasa with S-Flow blades.

For regular case fans, I just buy Gelids, run them most of the time at 500-800rpm, quieter than the stock FD fans at the same speed.
Apart from testing the fan top speeds are quite useless unless someone likes to listen to a vacuum cleaner all day XD
It's more important that they are cheap, run quiet at low speeds = below 1000rpm and still can push/pull well through filters/grills/coolers.

Inside my case on load it is about 50C, or is that motherboard temp. Cause my motherboard is saying 50C on load. Is that too hot?

Got yesterday Define R5, great case and special cable manangment, look, and it rly do great work blocking noise. thumb.gif
but it has some **** think, probably i got bad luck or somethink but, fan control didnt work, but thinking get another from fractal. left side panel quick locking system is pretty nice but not the best because it got some wiggle.
didnt got best hardware but here still pic

That should be the MB chipset temperature I think. Unless you put a thermometer inside your case you won't know the true air temperature inside your case.

My Z97 idles at 32C.
No idea what X99 achieves.
My ASRock board has a over temperature protection and decent heatsinks. I don't think any of the newer MB run into temp. issues these days.

Haven't posted any update pics in a while, but I got my 970 finally and removed my drive cages once and for all.

Finally managed to upload this beast. What a beautiful case it was to work with.

Real quick though there are some cables with 2 pins on them. Anyone know what they are for? There is also another cable that looks like a SATA cable but I'm sure it isn't. Anyone know what they are for?

Can someone confirm whether or not the anti-vibration "screws" that come with Noctua fans work on the front panel of the Arc Midi R2? I can't really see if they're installed from any of the pictures posted.

I need to replace my fans regardless as the stock ones are unbelievably annoying to the point I refuse to even use the max setting, meanwhile my NH-U14S cooler is practically silent running 33% faster...
Unsure if the noise is vibration or the motors themselves.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can verify this for me!
