LL

Just transferred some parts to a Define S from a Define R4, and the case is oh so close to my ideal. It was so easy to work in and easy to keep clean. I do wish it was a little more luxe; something, I for one, would gladly pay a premium for. Everything felt a just a little more plastic and thinner than the R4. Something I would gladly trade for the ability to hide drives and go cage'less.

I had a look at the temps again. My CPU temp is around 37-38C, rarely touching 36C. Fans was set to balanced though (intake at max speed).

@elviss08 Just curious though... why ya mounted the two 2.5 drives in the front instead of the back of the case? and that sub on the top of your desk doesn't bother you...?

Greetings,

I'm really interested in this case, but i have a few questions i would appreciate if answered :

1) How silent really are these stock GP14 fans which come with the case, and how efficient do they cool ?

2) Let's say i want to purchase a 980Ti or a R9 Fury (Non-X) , would i be able to install those cards in the Define R5 without the need to add more fans ?
In other words, are the stock fans any good, or i'd be better off changing them for lets say a pair of Noctua fans ?

I know there are a lot of reviews for this case, but i thought asking people who actually have this case would give me a more certain answer.

Cheers!

They're good case fans. No need to change them.

Adding second intake is recommended for total 2x in / 1x out. Stock configuration with 1x in / 1x out isn't enough for proper airflow and for achieving positive pressure* inside the case.
I'd recommend reading SilentPCReview's 'Quiet ATX Gamer R5' article. End of page 3 has baseline noise measurements, page 4 temperature's and their experiments with adding a second intake.
http://www.silentpcreview.com/Quiet_ATX_Gamer_R5_Version

*Air drawn into the case by only intake fans through filtered intakes, not from every nook and cranny with stock config which would be negative pressure hence dust getting in..

Basically this. The only problem with the fans is... you can't get them anywhere else without buying another Fractal casing.

Ouch, didn't notice that. Now to see whether there's anyone in this country that stocks them (Newegg doesn't ship to Malaysia).
