They actually don`t reach exact NFF12 but they look just extremly better.
By the Way im some kind of an be quiet freak - the name says everything and I think they do their job as best in the market.
If I`m going to go water on my ARC mid the Silent Wings 2 will find their place tongue.gif

Ordered my Arc Mini last night, any recommend "things to do first" before installing all the parts?

To be honest, if you've ever assembled a case before it's pretty straightforward. Just re-arrange the fans to suite your configuration and take out the top hard drive cage if you don't need it to improve the airflow. I can't think of anything else, but maybe one of the other members here will chime in. Good luck and have fun.

Aye, they don't keep heatsinks as cool as the F12's do, but the F12's are noisier so it's kinda what you're after. Would be my choice for watercooling fans also, or akasa apaches maybe...

I've always been partial to the Scythe Slipstreams, these are the ones i use in my case for intake case fans.

Oh no I've built a computer or two in my time. I'm talking more of the lines of computer case mods. I'm thinking some of the plastic behind the fans needs to go - for better air flow.

If you're after performance and/or silence, def switch the fans and the configuration. You could for example switch the rear fan to front so you'd have 2x front, 1x top and the heatsink fans. The stock fans are ok, but I know I wouldnt use 'em.
Removing plastic and filter from front would give you better airflow, and as someone already noted: take the upper cage out if you don't need it, or at least flip it around.

I hate the look the filter gives...

 

I'm also curious about this.

I've got a number of Scythe fans that I plan on using two in front blowing in, the one in back blowing in and then attach my H70 to the top with a fan blowing up and out. The top drive cage I plan on removing to allow better airflow as well.
