Cheers, I'm defo ordering 1 NZXT140RB to test - The Noiseblocker is only £2 more, I think with the NB PK3 the lowest RPM is ~700 at 4v whereas the PK2 is ~500 at 4v not sure if there would be much difference in sound at those speed, but the PK3 has a lot more head room, I would prefer the pk3 as intakes over the pk2 as long I can get that at a fairly low sound level under low loads.

What fans do you have at the front make/size/max rpm?

Cheers

Using 2x120 gentle typhoon 1850 rpm now
Previously was noise blocker xl2 1500 rpm.
not really much difference in performance maybe the most 1°
or 2° difference , but end up using the gentle typhoon cos the
fan blade is close to white color lol.tongue.gif

I am useing a PK2 and 3 in the front of mine, if I run them on low with a fan controller I get a weird humming sound (could be fan controller or just my case) but if I run them at full its fine, the PK3 pushes lots of air! thumb.gif

I was thinking of replacing the (OEM) FD fans like so:
Intake:
Front: 2x NoiseBlocker Silent Pro 140mm - Either PK2 or PK3
Bottom or Side: not sure yet (would need to use a 120mm at bottom tho')
Exhaust:
Rear & Top: 3x NZXT 9 Blade Rifle Bearing Fan 1300 RPM 140mm - FN 140RB
The main aim is to run all these via a fan controller and/or under-volt them. So I am going to buy one of each to test but I would prefer to just get 2 to test so what would be better the PK2 or PK3?
Cheers

I have two BlackSilentPro PLPS (PWM) 120mm as front intakes in my Arc Mini...and they are dead silent when running on this curve:

457


I imagine that when they get anywhere close to max, they would be lost in the noise of my CPU cooler and GPU fans. smile.gif

Nice touch with the fan control pointed to the side, looks good.

Thanks @jopy, @macarule & @Scuba Steve in VA for the very handy info you all have posted. thumb.gif


@jopy - I really wish GT fans came in 140mm, with regards to fan colours you're as bad as me, LOL - I'm hoping that a strip of white LED's behind the front NB fans will make the fins seem white-ish as they are not a solid black so some light should get through

@macarule - Really like your rig, great braiding too (done the front panel cables on mine will post photos at w/end). I hope I don't get that fan humming noise, is the PK-3 at the top or bottom of the front panel?

@Scuba Steve in VA - Hopefully the NB PK's will be fine for me after seeing your chart and info and the PK-3 is not much louder than your PLPS. - Really nice rig you got there too.


Well I have on order one of each to test: NZXT FN 140RB, NB PK-2 & NB PK-3 they should be here on Thursday.

Hi, The quick answer is no, sorry. As the Core 1000 only supports CPU coolers with height of 135mm. You might squeeze it in there with no fans, but you would be better of with a different cooler that can fit and use fans too.


EDIT:
@pokpok has pointed out to me that I have my info wrong. There is an article that shows you could get a 159mm cooler in the Core 1000, it's a very tight fit but has been done. - Sorry for any confusion.

Thanks smile.gif
it is at the top to get airflow through the case, i have a feeling its the fan and the case just magnifies it...
