The fan config I would be looking to run are 3x Noctua NF-A14 PWM as intake/exhaust with a NH-D15 as the cooler. I saw a couple users in the thread had pretty much that exact set-up and was hoping they'd be able to chime in!

Thanks!

the case is very quiet. It's the stuff in it that makes noise devilsmiley.gif

The loudest thing in my case at idle is one of my older WD Caviar Black HDDs. Second loudest are my CPU cooler fans and they are quiet but not silent. Graphics card is silent at idle. PSU fan has a hybrid silent mode but I have it running and cannot hear it. parts details are in my sig. Keep in mind my case is on top of the desk about 30 inches from eye level so I can hear anything. If it was on the floor I doubt I'd hear the HDDs.

if you have enough fans to exhaust all the hot air the radiator will put into the case, then you have enough fans to supply it with cool air in the first place. i suggest exhausting hot air to the outside to keep your other components cool (esp gpu)

hmm yeah.. but the picture is a bit more complex as that... fan type/make, performance, filters, grilles etc come into the equation
To minimise the number crunching, set Rads as intake, then at least you dont ahve to worry about them getting enough "fresh" air

And about "hot" air into the case.... unless you've got a really fantastically performing radiator (and ALU CLC rads are NOT) then the air exiting the rad will be no more as 2`C "hotter" as the air coming in from outside the case...
Most of the time the air inside the case gets way "hotter" than that by the GPU dumping & recycling the air in a badly ventilated case, unless its a reference GPU with a squirrel-cage fan

In general, and thus also for ARC/DEFINE series, following setup gives best cooling
FRONT: Intake
BOTTOM(floor) : Intake
REAR: Exhaust
TOP: None or Intake
SIDE: Not needed. In multi GPU setups, INTAKE will be most helpful. In Single non-reference GPU setup, if you dont mind some cardboard ducting, exhaust is an option.

With Rads: the same -INTAKE- , Rad mounted either vertically in the Front, or horizontally in the TOP.

Hi!
Can anybody measure exact internal height of Define S?
I`m looking to this two 360 build where these boys are 400 of length

and 30 mm thick (which equal 55 mm needed top clearance)
and thinking of putting in Define S one Coolgate 420 60mm thick on top (with fans mouned outside) and EK PE 360 (38 mm thick) to front.
So it`s 5 mm deal rolleyes.gif
No push\pull of cause )

Its about 17 and 1/2 inches from top to bottom in the inside of the case.

Thread Starter 
Does anyone have Fractal Design Venturi High Flow Series 140mm fans? 2 out of the 3 I own started making an annoying noise within 4 months of ownership. One has been replaced by FD already, and within the same week the other started making the same noise as if the fan is just barely hitting something or is off balance (I suppose). This noise continues when the fan is outside of the case, so I know 100% it's not tightened too tight and hitting the top of the case.

Nice and clean! You may want to check the RAM slots though so it's operating in quad-channel mode.

Yep, right now you're running the memory in dual channel. To have the memory in quad channel, move the sticks from D2+C2 > A1+B1.
Or in other words, use only the red slots with four sticks of memory.

Rampage%20IV%20Extreme_system%20memory_small.jpg

The letters A, B, C and D mean the memory channels, your CPU's memory controller is quad channel hence four letters.
A1 for example means channel A slot 1. Where as D2 would mean channel D slot 2.
Generally you only want to have a single memory stick per memory channel.
And since you have four sticks of memory and your CPU has a quad channel memory controller, it makes the most sense to utilize all of the memory channels.

It does not make a whole lot of difference performance wise, since really, the difference between dual and quad channel in the real world is rather quite small.
http://www.legitreviews.com/ddr3-memory-performance-analysis-on-intel-x79_1779
http://www.hardwarezone.com/feature-memory-channel-scaling-sandy-bridge-e-core-i7-3960x-experience/results-sysmark-2007-preview-lightwave-3d-90
Sure there's a huge difference in bandwidth when you go from dual to quad channel but it's not gonna show up in the workloads of the real world we all are living in unless the workload actually needs and can utilize that higher bandwidth.

The "bigger" difference in your situation would be that, like I mentioned above, it's generally best to have only one memory stick per memory channel.
If you have TWO sticks of memory in a single memory channel, it's going to put a bigger load on the memory controller compared to running one stick of memory per memory channel.
That can, for example, impact the highest CPU overclock you could achieve!

But of course, running the memory like that is OK. It's gonna work just fine and dandy! It's not going to break anything! We're just nitpicking here.
