I also like the way you mounted your HDD. Did you stick it on the sidepannel?
Cheers, if the fan was 1mm wider it wouldn't fit biggrin.gif I had to go back to using my 2x 120mm for the moment though 'cause I may have damaged the fan... Seems like it's no longer balanced, makes a weird grinding/ticking type noise which is annoying as redface.gif Will open her up next week and see if there's something wrong with the motor, maybe add a bit of oil too.
The HDD mount is kinda funny actually. As you can see I've drilled the bottom cage off: it's fixed with 6 rivets, four on the bottom and 2 on the mobo tray. The HDD is mounted with one screw through the top rivet hole and is resting on a piece of noise dampening material I had.

Arc Midi on it's way! biggrin.gif

Also 3 Corsair AF140. Should be swapping my current 120 with corsair for 2 more 140's. Until then I will use the stock 140's in the roof and floor. Post pics when installed. Plan to get some Bitfenix extention cables to tidy up the look of it. Will also be going 3570k in a few months. thumb.gif

Has anyone used the BitFenix Spectre All White 140mm Case Fan? I only have a Micro Center in my area and they do have it in stock. I want to use the same RPM as the stock fans since I will be using the fan controller. New Egg link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835345006&Tpk=bitfenixn

I have a few 120mm spectres and they're great if you're looking for silent fans. Can't hear them 1m away at all.

Thanks for the feedback. I wanted it to match and have the same RPM. My build has been delayed as my GPU died. EVGA received it yesterday and will be shipping it soon. In the meantime, I have to use the on board graphics. With no GPU fan running I was surprised at how quiet both stock fans and the Thermalright TY-140 on the Macho are.

i've got four of them as well as the white LED 140. i tried cross-breeding the white blade in the white LED frames.
the effect was MEAH at best... i like the bitfenix fans, but the pro is a better fan.. the plain spectre is ok for window
side-panels, but just not the breather you kinda need for the R4.

they are decent, not the best, but decent a tick better than the stock R2 that might have come in the case. leaps
better than the OE 140 that also came in some of the cases. there are better for the same of less monies. being
a local sale is good, but i wouldn't settle for these at this time. the pro would be a better fan and paint the cage/blade
white if you are using a fan controller.

I agree that the Pros are better, but why did you say he should paint the fans? The Pros come in white too...

I'm going to give it a try. The Silent Series R2 has a bit more CFM so I'll mount the Bitfenix in the bottom front. 1000k RPM is not going to be a blower regardless. If it doesn't work out, I can return it.

I'm not a "he" btw. Although I am in a very small minority, there are a few women like me who build their own. thumb.gif

Is this the one you guys are talking about? It's 1200 RPM vs 1000 RPM. In order to use the built in fan controller isn't the same RPM for all the fans better?

FWIW, I removed both drive cages. I have an SSD and a 2.5" laptop drive mounted in one of the drive trays. Screwed the SSD into the tray and used another mount for the 2.5". on top of it. EDIT: Right now it sits on the bottom of the case.

I have an eSATA drive dock I use for the 3.5" spinners. So except for the GPU, there will be little heat. The HR-02 Macho comes with the 140mm Thermalright TY-140 too.

doesn't have to be.. you can mix and match.. the fan controller doesnt care.. it take
12v and reduces it to a lower voltage. what the fan does with it is up to the fan... not
the controller. but if you are looking for equal, then yeah.. same rpm would be desired.
but most fans have a varience of +/- 10%.. so its not an exacting science..

200rpm can make a lot of difference depending on blade profile, hub sizing, and
blade pitch. in slot of cases, its not just the cfm, it is also the static pressure.

i love my BGears 140 1800 rpm @ 12v and 1100rpm @ 7v. quieter than R2 but moves
a lot more air (75cfm) and static pressure to boot... the spectres were decent.. the pros
were good, but a louder noise without air movement @ 7-volt to match noise content.
