[Official] Fractal Design Case Club - Page 1356

post #13551 of 16068
The temperature varied enough that I have no results I'd report with certainty. XTU reported the same temp with back open as when back closed. But Hwinfo reported much cooler (4c) average with back open during those same xtu runs. Conversly (perversely), Prime95.28.7 was 0.5c cooler with back closed after 4 minutes blend. I think it would take climate control and averaging to get a result that meant something.

Okay. I'm thinking of standardizing the fans in the R5 from the following:
  • 2 x Fractal GP-14 (stock case fans) as front intakes
  • 1 x Noctua NF-P14s redux-1200 PWM as bottom intake
  • 1 x Noctua NF-A14 PWM as rear exhaust
  • Top covers remain closed

... to something that looked less... messy for my eyes. The problem is that sites like Newegg doesn't ship to Malaysia, which means that going with Fractal Venturis is not a choice so I'm left with nominally fans that I can get via retail channels (best option being Noctuas, but very pricey) or local forums. I'm thinking of switching all of the fans entirely to something that matches better with the case.

A local forumer is having around like 12 Phanteks PH-F140SPs in stock (they're not available via retail channels), would they be a good match for a 2 x front intake/1 x bottom intake/1 x rear exhaust configuration?

I've used PH-F140SPs in two builds as case and rad fans. They work. One made noise pushing into rad, which it should not have. Over all: leds smile.gif, good price, flexible, and good performance for me.

Oh well, ordered four of them. If anything they cost me the price of two NF-A14 PWMs. Won't lose much if they don't work as intended since they can go into another case.

I want to buy a black window side panel for my Fractal Design R5. However, I cannot order it from the official spare parts website of Fractal Design: http://www.fractal-design-shop.de/index.php?a=487
I subscribed to get an update when they are in stock again. But when I got this alert, they were immediately sold out! mad.gif
A lot of Australian websites have them in stock, but they don't ship to Germany!

Do you guys know where I can buy it?
I live in Germany.

I just started installing a new build in a Define R5 case but i can't seem to install the extra front case fan at the bottom below the pre-installed 140mm fan behind the door. I am using Those 4 long black screws that are supplied with the case, the bottom screws seem to go in but the top screws do not seem to go through the holes. It's like the top holes need to be tapped out or something.

Anybody else had this issue.? you just put the fan in place and pop in the 4 long screws.. right.?

Finally got the PH-F140SPs and installed them. At full tilt fan noise from blown air is quite obvious, it's probably because the bottom fan is blowing right onto the R9 280X (and the space was previously occupied by a fan with lower CFM and static pressure), while I can barely hear anything with the medium speed setting. I'll probably leave the high speed setting for gaming though.

There Silent Series R3 140mm fans don't seem to fit in the front of the define 5 either.. there a tad thicker then the stock. I had to swap the Silent Series R3 with the stock back fan then move that to the front of the case
