Your right though, fan curves don't matter at all if running the fan at 100% or manually set it higher. I only mentioned that because it seems that fan speeds are related to temp and not GPU load; that sounds obvious I know, but if your card is only trying to keep temps under say, 95 degrees, that means it won't push it lower, even if it could. (Still doesn't make a difference if you manually set fan speed higher which is why watercoolers usually don't notice this phenomenon).

I'm all for watercooling if you already are buying top components and have the cheddar to burn; just don't forego better components to budget in water. thumb.gif

Ahh alright makes sense with the 970...and yes I would completely agree with you...don't go water cooling if you can dump that cash into better components.

I like your setup a lot. Your two closed loop systems were like $250 bucks combined. Not a bad deal, a lot less expensive than I thought. thumb.gif

I love the way it looks, although my pc is currently the box under my desk that I occasionally kick, mostly by accident....mostly. tongue.gif

(I also sent you a PM about your headphone setup).

Thanks! Yeah I spent a lot of time and too much money on it...but man I learned a lot in the process...it was fun for the most part.

I am planning to buy a Define R5 and I want to use 5+ fans, but it says the included fan controller supports only 3 fans. Do I need to buy a separate controller to use more then 3 fans?

You can only control 3 fans off of the switch in the front panel. I wouldn't use that switch. Buy a motherboard that can control the fans with PWM

The case harness is a low-tech three voltage switch that taps into a SATA connector for power so the fans will run at 5V, 7V or 12V based on the three way switch on the front of the case.

Or don't use it at all and have the motherboard control the fan speeds which is a better approach.

That said, the fractal fans case are very quiet at 5V. I used the factory harness for a while until I dialed in my speed control using SpeedFan.

Hey guys,

I have a brand new in box NZXT Grid V2 fan controller (it is an extra that I don't need). If one of you is interested I will give it away for $15 (free shipping). I figure someone on here may be interested in one for their case.

I love mine BTW.

PM if your interested.

Are there any airflow intake problems with the Define S. Do the side openings provide enough air intake to keep up with 140mm fans?
