On top, it seems to me in your build you have only 1 sdd, 1 hdd and 1 optical drive, same as me. I managed to use only 2 cables from my power supply: 1 for the graphic card and 1 with 4 molex: 1 for the sentry mesh, and the others for the drives (with NZXT braided cables molex to sata).

Yes, I might change the fan controller, although I like its position. Thanks for the recommendation. thumb.gif

Can any Define XL owners help me out. I'm trying to put together a really really quiet PC. Will be a 2500k cooled by a Noctua nh-d14, a GTX580 with the arctic cooling accelero xtreme cooler. No HDD's but 2 SSD's. I've heard the XL and R3 are quiet cases but was hoping for some input from some Define XL owners about how quiet the case is.

Here is the inside of case. I have since fixed those fan controller cables on top, but I don't have a pic yet. Is there anyone else here who feels that there are just too many HDD slots? I could use another 5.25" bay. That hard drive silencer is just resting on top of the drive cage.450

If you really care for ethics, it might be worth getting a sleeving kit... smile.gif

Seriously tho, I see too many people buying new cases designed to hide cables and have them organized. The fact that you don't see these cables don't mean it has to be in a huge clutter.

But..it seems most don't maximize this potential which sorts of voids the point for getting one of them new cases. tiredsmiley.gif

I thought the idea of being able to hide the cables behind the motherboard tray was so that you maximise airflow over the components by getting the cables out of the way... I do prefer a tidy collection of cables in my PC though wink.gif

My Define XL is incredibly quiet. I have 5 HDs and 9 fans inside, among them 3x 38mm Deltas and when they're running at low rpms you can't hear it over the fan of my laptop. It takes 25% (running 2 cores) on my 4.5GHz FX-8150 to kick the fans up one notch and then you hear a very light breeze.
Of course at 100% the Deltas are loud but it's still very bearable thanks to the case. Right now the noise from the Deltas blows straight out the back and I'm thinking of baffling that somehow.

adi518, So Was looking at your system on the previous page and I had a though. I guess this goes for everyone posting pics on this thread buy why don't more people remove the mounting bracket(s) for their expansion cards and spay paint them WHITE so as to match the factory ones and continue the white accented internal appearance.
