But i had it in push pull with Noctua F12's and it was whisper quiet.

Can I ask you is the push pull worth it with these noctuas. I was heavily confronted by actaully doing that or not. But if I can shave off some worthwhile temp while adding not much to noise im in for that. my gpu actaully needs to run at 100% fans for 75C which isnt so load for me considering everyone complains its awfull. "msi 980ti 6gaming at 1410mhz stock voltage.

My current setup is on pull. ( I dont know air goes in? . Id reconsider the extra fans even thought im running well below 75C avarage on benches with 80% on these noctuas 1600rpm but gaming loads would be 1200rpm its really soundless. Thats why I ask =) however this is at 1.180volt

And yeah you make it sound awfull mine went easy in. I dont think all tubes all created equal they are manufactured but they might aswel have some cut short id bet. You might want to contact corsair themselves on this matter. If you managed anyway it might not be worth the trouble thought.


UPi76dP.png Aida64 loads.. mind you. and these are idling now at 1234rpm noctuas.

I had 4 F12's they were intake on the front as I didn't want to open the top moduvents for sound reasons. It was just as quiet with 4 as it was with 2, maybe even more so since I could turn down the RPM's some. It did knock maybe 3-4 degrees in temp off and with my 980 ti right in front of the rad it actually helped keep that cool and provide more airflow into the case. And I had all the fan's already so I didn't really have a reason not to do it. Now if you have to purchase more fans to do it then maybe not worth it, but if you have the fans and the time then yea it's worth taking 10 mins to connect it and wire it all up.

Push/pull tends to be more useful with slower speed fans. You could go push/pull and either
a) same RPM > lower temps
b) same temp > lower RPM

I couldn't quickly find a H105 P/P review but I did find couple of H100/H100i P/P reviews. The H105 is 20fpi rad vs 18 on the H100. idk the FPI on H100i.
http://www.kitguru.net/components/cooling/henry-butt/corsair-h100-h100i-performance-comparison-with-sp120-fans/4/
But do note that even the "quiet" SP120's run 1450rpm.
http://www.hardocp.com/article/2011/07/26/corsair_h100_extreme_perf_liquid_cpu_cooler_review/3
And the "low" vs crazy high on the H100 is probably quiet vs perf mode eg. up to like ~1300rpm vs up to 2000+ rpm.

If deaf then I guess yes biggrin.gif
1200-1600rpm even on 120mm fans is loud.

Maybe your GPU is so loud it doesn't really matter how loud the case fans are anymore.

Hello!
I migrated my PC to Define R5 yesterday.
Everything seems to be fine but i have two questions:
1. Did you have plastic foil on your front panels? I think I watched an unboxing video where it was visible but I didn't have any protection on front panel of my case.
2. One of my top USB 2.0 ports seems to be very tight. I could not take usb stick out of it without unnatural force. Is there any solution for this issue?

I'm not sure what you mean by plastic foil.

As far as the USB ports on top, we all have problems with them both plugging in and unplugging.

This protection on front door visible at 2:15.

No I don't recall that on mine. Either 1 that's only on the titanium one, is that yours? Or they've just changed packaging which will happen over the life of a product.

Nope, mine is black.
To be clear, everything with my front panel is fine - no damage, scratches etc.
Everything else looked like factory packed too.
I was just curious smile.gif

1) Yes, R4 Titanium
2) Some of the USB ports may need a bit of break in. But there has been some issue before with audio ports, I think mine work fine but can be hard at first as well, anyway they will send you a replacement if yours are messed up. It's pretty normal for any connector to need a bit of break in.

Any other 3rd party filters than Demci? Demci have soft frame or hard plastic one like stock on FD cases? Magnetic by default? Do they make a version that has hard frame and can slide into place like stock FD filters?
How are they with filtering compared to the IMHO not so good FD filters? I can't find specs of the mesh for Demci.
