You will find many people here at OCN will circle jerk over the Hyper 212 cooler but for $20-$30, it really does provide a nice boost in CPU cooling performance versus the stock cooler than Intel provides you with. It is also quiet.
hyper212 is kinda meh here in 2015. It does offer the same/slightly better temps for a lot less fanspeed (noise) though.

Stock cooler is like an aeroplane tongue.gif And the cooling performance doesn't allow you to OC anything but the G3258. It's just so bad at cooling, the cooling capacity of it is not designed for OC nor quiet cooling.

I like the new Cryorig H7. Personally I have an HR-02 Macho Rev.A, one of the quietest air coolers, doesn't block RAM, neither PCIE, at least to me it seems like I could fit a card into first PCIE slot. And it's not crazy heavy nor crazy expensive like NH-D14/5 and similar while the performance trails those behemoths pretty close.

212 Evo isn't bad, but it's dated and there are other even better options now.

settle down guys. This is a 5775C build waiting for the cpu to be sold in the states. I couldn't wait, so I powered up this. When they sell me a cpu I'll switch to water. The question was about 3 front fans and noise, I showed this as an example of a build that is quite. And regarding oc the 3258, I've benched it last year with a H100. atm, this is folding in the corner.

My mic and headphone jacks work fine and all the USBs work. Just got it a few weeks ago.

I'm moving from 800D to R5 but have a problem. To make this work I need to get rid of my current res/pump combo (refer sig) and replace it with something that fits this case.

The RX360 goes to the top which removes the ODD bay which is just fine and dandy by me. But I cannot leave the HDD bays there either as whatever res/pump solution I get, the GPU clearance is already 310 to the HDD cases?

So my question to WC here, what do you use and how do you make it not rattle? There's the XSPC D5 Photon 170 but this is very hard to find while the 270 is way too large. Then there's EK XRES 140 D5 PWM but I haven't figured how this is coupled to the case in a nice quiet way.

Has anyone compared the Noctua 140mm fans to the Fractal 140mm fans the come in the R4? I have 4x Fractal 140mm fans in my R4 spinning around ~700rpm and would like it to be a bit quieter. But I dunno if the Noctuas will have really be quieter at the same CFM. My Fractal fans do tick a bit, but I can't hear that over the fan noise.

I would keep the fractal fans. Not much difference in fans below 1,000rpm or maybe consider 500 rpm gentle typhoons. They are 120mm but are about as quiet as a fan can be and still move air.

FD, if they click, they suck. Maybe they changed the fan internal design, but the older FD all click and consume more power than a non clicking cheapo fan. If anyone would even buy them I would sell them in an instant. Not that they are a deal breaker, but I can get other cheaper and better fans.

They do click when my ear is right up on them. I don't know what other fans to get. I have 4 of the Fractal 140mm fans, I don't want to spend $20 each for Noctuas unless they are hands down the quietest. I just have a hard time believing there will be much of a difference at 700rpm.

TBH; the best fans I've personally used are the Antec Tricool 120mm. When spinning at ~600rpm or so, they are almost dead silent. Ever since my Refine R2, I've zip tied 2 of those fans to the inside side of the HDD cage to pull the air over the hard drives and keep the air moving to the back in the case...

I have as Intake: FRONT UPPER/LOWER & SIDE. Considering adding a bottom as I've seen that highly recommended.

I have as Exhaust: REAR

I have one more fan on the inside of the HDD cage to pull the air over my 2 WD Green drives and keep the air moving in the case.

They will be better. But $80 better is really up to you. Bottom intake fans didn't do much during my testing tbh.
