I wouldn't think a side fan should be necessary in this configuration.

Thank you, much appreciated!

I actually made simple diagram, before i read your response. so i might as post it now, just to be sure, we are on the same page:




One more thing i have to ask, what about the fan configuration? Did i got it right? Can i mount radiator in push-pull config with the FD fans, which come with the case pushing the air to the radiator from the outside and the Corsair fans, which come with the rad, pulling the air of it into the case? Or should i use simply do push or pull with the Corsair fans?

I'm not sure it'll affect performance having two 140mm fans pushing air into a dual 120mm rad, but it is possible to do it that way. If I had to speculate though, I'd expect the blade overlap between the two sizes would create extra noise from buffeting without a whole lot of benefit in terms of airflow. Might be best to leave the 140mm fans out. Doing so should simplify the process of mounting the bottom fan too. That's my opinion anyway.

It looks like you got a pretty clean build out of it. What grievances have you had with your R4?

So small case even for 240mm radiators, not holes for 120mm fans on front panel.

I swapped the Crucial RAM out for this Corsair 4000 MHz kit. I wanted to see if it makes a difference in Fallout 4 on this particular machine and...to my surprise it actually does.

My OCD says I need a blood red PCIe slot cover, and I need to shorten that run from the pump to the GPU.

CableMod custom cables also came in, and I realized two things almost immediately...



One, I should have double checked my order, as I forgot the second SATA power cable for my HDD. I also forgot to order custom SATA data cables, and I should have ordered a double MOLEX instead of the single, considering my plan was to rig up the NZXT HUE+ and I'm already using one Molex for the fan controller. I'm out of Molex splitters...it's been so long since I needed one.

Faster Ram will always make a difference to FPS numbers because of how quickly it can process information, keeping you CAS numbers down also helps, I've got a really nice kit of Corsair 16gb 2400mhz ram DDR3 as I'm not on skylake yet, and I've yet to run into issues.

Try playing about with your timings and see if you can get them lower. Fallout is CPU limited due to being open world, so if you speed up how quickly your pc can calculate all the magic numbers then its going to help.

I've got a quick question. I currently have a R4 and considering buying an R5 windowed case for my server. If I pop the rivets on the 5.25 bays to remove that cage will that cause any case stability issues? also would it be possible to put the bottom HDD cage at the top? so it's 3 complete cages.

Thanks guys
