I did a little bit of testing last night. Played skyrim for a while.

The temps are much better than my old case. In the old case my 5770 was hitting high 90s and at one point hit 105 C. This was with skyrim and BF3. But now with the Arc it only hit 86 C after playing skyrim for 30-40 minutes. It idles now at 39 C. I think it idled around 50 C something before.

My i5 only hit 61 C while playing skyrim. Used to hit around 70 C. So gained about 10 C. It idles now at about 30-32 C. It idled about 34-35 C before so not a massive change.

The motherboard is at 27 C at idle. Forgot to check it after playing skyrim.

I was going to test BF3 but it wanted to update and it was late last night and my internet is slow so I will try BF3 later.

I have the case set up with five fans. I have it set up for positive air flow with four intakes and one exhaust. Three of the intakes are on the included controller. Front top fan, side panel fan, and top fan. I had the controller on high. Oh, and the fans are the three stock fans and two fractal 140s I picked up with the case.

At a LAN party now and the Fractal guys are here showcasing a bunch of their cases. I am impressed at the build quality of their cases and may consider them for my next case.

My front 2 fans and the bottom are my intakes, and the top 2 and rear are my exhaust. This seems to have the best cooling effect for me.

Top Fans: 140mm Scythe Maru2: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835185158

Front fans: 120mm Scythe Slipstreams: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835185060

Bottom intake and rear exhaust: 120mm CoolerMaster Blademasters (same as my cooler, and also controlled by PWM): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103069

Edit: The top 2 140's and the front 2 120's are hooked up to this: http://lamptron.com/products/view/Fan_Controller_FC5V2

Ok so last night I decided to remove the front fan filter and placed DiNoc carbon fiber vinyl on some cardboard. Here are the results. (I want to give Thanks to everyone else that has done this mod)thumb.gif

Still seems a tad warm...and I would blame that stock CPU cooler. You could do a lot better without spending very much. thumb.gif

Yeah that's how I have it now. The only thing is I have a radiator at the bottom as intake so its putting some hot air back into the case when the gpu loads up. I prefer maintaining the positive pressure as my last case was a dust magnet. I can thankfully say the Arc had dropped my CPU load temps by about 4 degrees which is very impressive.

Thanks for the post. That's almost what I have right now less the second top exhaust and fan choice. I'm going to try another 140 up top to see if that helps. Also, how did you mount 120's in the front? Edit: NVM, I just noticed you have a mini.

That's what she said....wait, wut? rolleyes.gif Yeah, I got the little brother. I spent a lot of time with a Cosmos, and grew tired of its size. I think I am going to stick with a SFF from now on. Are you planning on sticking with the Fractal fans?

+Rep....Nice job. I would really like to do this for the CFM increase, but I share the basement with our dogs, so I really need the filter...The mod makes the case look better though imo. thumb.gif
