post #12531 of 16291
H100i pump can be a bit noisy, I would just mount it at the front and put the moduvents back if you do not need anything there, and aslong you dont need more than 3x HDDs then shouldnt be an issue to have the radiator in the front. Would also swap out the PSU for a passive one which only spin the fan when under a lot of load.

In my system only thing I can hear is the pump + HDD with my Fractal R4, but its not really noisy. Will upgrade to Fractal Define S tho when its available for better watercooling support rolleyes.gif

if the gpu is not too long a 240/280 rad could fit up front and keep all the drive bays. The image below shows a thick rad there. Something like h100 would fit easy with fans on the filter side. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

You should update your rig specs biggrin.gif

That's a semi passive power supply like I have so yeah, not an issue biggrin.gif

One thing to ask though is why are you not running the NF-F12's from the motherboard and have them controlled by the CPU temperature? Since with PWM control they can run as low as 300rpm (+-20% or 240-360rpm).
That would be the first thing I would do in your quest of making your rig quieter.

On voltage control the NF-F12 runs a little over 700rpm at 5V. It starts at 5.5V. As far as I can tell, the Sentry thingydoodler you have is an expensive voltage controller with a range of 5-12V.
You could have achieved the same results using couple of splitters on the Define R5 integrated controller since the lo/mid/hi correspond to 5/7/12 volts.
Or by using what you already have, your motherboard has a single CPU_FAN header and your NF-F12's came with 4-pin PWM Y-cables.
You can daisy chain all of them from the single CPU_FAN header you have. Not a pretty solution but you can hide it behind the motherboard tray.

And if you wonder whether you can run four F12's from a single header, consider this, a single NF-F12 only draws 0.05A, hence four of them would draw 0.2A while most motherboards should handle at least 0.5A, most should be 1A. I skimmed through the manual of your motherboard but couldn't find any info regarding how much the fan headers can handle. But with a MAX draw of 0.2A you're not gonna damage ANYTHING.

If your motherboard supports PWM you can control them in the Bios or with software like I am doing with my Maximus VII Z97 Hero, have them in a passive mode where they do not spin until like 60 degrees which does not happen a lot with my custom loop smile.gif

@Wirerat

Seems like that picture you only have 3x2 Bays instead of the orignal 5x1 and 3x1. Also there would be no space for a Res/pump with this config unless you have it in the optical bay with combo or mount it next to the rear fan. But looks like 5x1 would fit there anyways, but personally I would never need that many discs and I do not think most average gamers will.

Also the pump and res could easily fit above the psu on the mesh area thats right beside the pcie slot covers. Its actually really wide there.

Yeah, just install Speedfan. There's plenty of guides out there. Honestly it's quite easy to setup and you'll have your fans setup to act just the way you want them. Like KoNLaR said, you can have your fans semipassive, not run at all until a certain treshold is met.

Basiclly Fractal R5 = Those who need optical bays and more disc bays and I believe it has more sound dampening foam than the Fractal S.

Fractal S = Do not need optical/lots of disc drives, better watercooling support with the whole front and top with lots of space + reservoir mounting support and pump screw holes in the bottom and a bigger window to show off everything. And almost forgot, its more affordable than any other case with this features dedicated for watercooling. Some might argue with the h440, but thats a ***** to mount a Res in, more expensive and less sound proof.

yea, i only needed room for 1 HDD and im certain I could suspend it out of sight on the "s". Unfortunately, the "s" was not available two months ago.

Other than the slightly larger window on the S. The exterior looks the same to me. I wonder if the side panels are the same fit.
