post #131 of 15934
ye guess ill stick to 120's cos the door vents are in same shape as 120 too so even modded it wouldnt be so good.

not sure when i going to build new pc (maybe march) want to get new alloys for my new car first hehe but i'll be sure to take pics ;p

only other thing is cpu coolers for 1155? websites are claiming 1156 coolers will fit 1155 but seems not the case from what ive read from the first 1155 owners.

I'm tempted to wait for the R3 to come to Newegg, so hopefully it won't be long like they say. I don't want to be waiting around forever, I've been wanting a new case for quite a while tongue.gif

r3 is alot cheaper than 108 lol... i seen it go down pretty low bundled with PSUs

Hey guys, I'm really looking forward to Fractal Design coming to Newegg at the end of the month and I'm going to get an R3 when the time comes but I had a few questions.

The site says it can support a 120mm/140mm on the bottom if the PSU doesn't exceed 160mm but one of the earlier posts on this thread was a user with a corsair psu that measures 180mm (same as mine) and it looked like there might still be room to just barely squeeze in a 120mm fan, can anyone comment?

Also, how is the cooling when more of the fan slots are populated? I'm thinking of populating the fan slots (Both fronts, bottom if possible, side, rear, and the rearmost top) with Enermax's T.B Silence line (120mm/140mm) which I've read great things about.

Also, have any of you experienced better temperatures using two top exhausts rather than just one?

Thanks for the input! biggrin.gif

I have red that 1 in the front is enough. The side fan is completely useless and the only fans u really need is 1 back, 1 back on the roof and 1 at the bottom. These are not my own experience, just what other people have said and proven working.
post #137 of 15934
Interesting, I feel that a side fan might be more useful in my situation because my graphics card (Gigabyte GTX 560) has a more open cooling design and could benefit from the fresh air.

But if u see at that from this angle, the bottom fan has a dust filter. The side fan has not. And the bottom fan will as well provide fresh air to ur GPU. I haven't heard about anyone that has thought that the side fan is good smile.gif
post #140 of 15934
Easy/cheap enough to rig a homemade filter to the side intake wink.gif

Only one way to find out. biggrin.gif

Not to mention there's a possibility I might not be able to fit a fan to the bottom with my power supply which is 180mm. It looks like (from pictures) I'll just be able to squeeze in a 120mm but I'm not sure.
