[Official] Fractal Design Case Club - Page 1309

post #13081 of 16139
Not to be impatient or ungrateful, but can someone please tell me the distance from the rear of an installed 25mm front fan to the back inside wall of the case in an R5?

If you're feeling particularly generous, you can also tell me the distance from the back of the case to the 140mm fan mount on the bottom.

Do we have a Fractal design rep. Thanks

Asked FD about some moduvent-like dedicated dust filters.
They consider doing something like that although can give no promise at this point.
Let's hope it won't be only for future cases. (R6)

Like why? There are tons of 140mm, etc. filters out there to put on the case. Moduvent like, what does that mean? Those moduvents are nothing more than a piece of plastic with a open cell foam glued to them, that's it, other than covering the fan port they have no other function and their noise dampening is about as good as anything else you would cover the port with biggrin.gif
Fancy name for a simple thing.

My Fractal Design Define S.
I5 4670k @ 4.4ghz at 1.231v
Asus GTX 970 strix
Seasonic 520w PSU


All EKWB cooled, except for the top rad. That's from Alphacool, the UT60 model.
All my 5 rad fans are the Vardar 1850 models. Really loving them.

Sorry for the bad quality picture, it was taken with my iPhone 6.

Greetings Willius biggrin.gif

Moved my stuff into a Define R5. I seem to buy my stuff based on hype meters, but the R5 does seem like the end game case. Not sure what improvements could be made in this type of case.

It means panels matched to moduvent look, size, fixing... and... with holes and dust filter smile.gif
Sure, can get custom filter but it always spoils case's look - one of the main advantages.

My R2 build coming along nicely......not much left now except case painting someday and a few more tweeks here and there.



A shot in the dark.....

Moduvent look right there:
Not that you can see them from the outside anyway. At least they are screwed in, that is before the plastic strips very quickly just by remounting them once.


Maybe nicer aesthetics when closed but the attachment is just a snap on plastic that breaks too biggrin.gif


What bothers me more are the honeycomb grills still all over the case, something that is best cut the heck out.
R5 has moduvents attached from outside and has thinner foam.

The stock FD filters are coarse a lot, something worth replacing anyway.

Still running a 1st gen Define Mini here.

Love the damn thing to bits.
Only thing I couldn't agree with was the left-side door having a bulging vent.

That wouldn't sit with me, so I found a somewhat warped chassis with an unharmed right-side door, and bought the thing off the dude for the price of lunch.
