I run my fractal 140mm fans ~ @ 7v. Too noisy at full speed.

And they're good at 7V?

True, when running at max speed the fractal fans are not quiet. But they are less noisy then a lot of fans at a given speed. The airflow to noise ratio is not great, though.
Admittedly, i hardly ever run fans at more then 1000rpm, and my Noiseblockers dont go any higher then that, so i couldn't do a comparison at higher rpm.

So in general, i would say the fractals are worth keeping if you run them at <1000rpm and don't need very high airflow for hot hardware.

Anyone with an R3 and some good cable management want to put up a pick of the back of their MB tray? I rushed my build together when I first swapped cases and would like to really do it right this time. Looking for something to shoot for.

I reckoned it'd give you plenty of inspiration. 2cents.gif I took the ideas from other people in here.

Frankly, I had a harder time with sleeved cables. The 24 pin cable that came with my AX750 PSU is sleeved...and it is as fat as my finger. The PCI and 8pin MB cables are a bit smaller, but also have a fairly hefty sleeved diameter. I'm not sure how they would have fit in a Define with the acoustic foam insulation. They were fairly tight in my Arc...even with a fairly careful layout. Individually sleeved cables will lay flatter.

BTW adi518, that is one beautiful job. It almost warrants a window on that side of the case. smile.gif
