I really like to see my ssd on front, not hidden with cables. smile.gif

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.

*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..

Many thanks for the link. it was really helpful.
So i guess i'm better off keeping the stock fans and add another Fractal design's own GP14 fan on the front, to help pushing more air into the case.

Cheers!

I went with 3 in 1 out. Works for me so far.

Am I the only one who can't seem to screw the HDD drives into place?

I took the top tray out, and the HDD that came with my PC was clamped down nicely. I can't for the life of my screw my other HDD's in though. I can put the rubber bits on, screw the HDD onto the white tray and slide it in, but the screws right on the side seem far too big so stop them from vibrating.

It's irritating me now because my HDD's are vibrating like crazy. The rest of the R5 is great, but the HDD trays are poorly designed.

Picture?

Don't use HDD cages, rule #1 for noise reduction.
#2 don't use HDDs.

Hey guys, any news on slotted moduvents yet? Want to add a 240mm top rad but don't want dust to settle into the case and for noise reasons I went with 1 single rad rather than open the top up, slotted vents could allow an extra rad keeping a bit of noise dampening, sort of. Here's my design S build any way. 2500k and 980ti, 360mm monsta rad, 8cm thick, in push pull. Outer push fans behind plastic front panel.

No news yet, unfortunately. I am waiting on same same thing.

Have anyone noticed how similar the define r4 and define s is? Dust filter pulls out at the back, only 120 mm fan mount in bottom, similar sidepanel mounting. R4 Case dimensions (WxHxD): 232 x 464 x 523mm, Define S Case dimensions (WxHxD): 233 x 451 x 520mm. Anyway i could be completely be wandering out in the dark, but to me the define s feels like a modified r4. Just wanted to point that out.
