Personally, I'd seriously consider using some yates..........or any good reputable Mfg. of Fans

The Fractal ones supplied in kit are just so-so at best.

Random question: How do I mount a 240 radiator in the top of my R3 case? Do I need some sort of bracket? I can't get the holes to line-up on my black ice gt 240 rad.
I want to do something like this: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I realize that's not an R3

ive answered this in your water cooling section.

either in the optibay or large ssd, remote HDD (USB/eSATA/network) or laptop drives..

i use either the BGears 120 or the swiftech helix for front fans.. helps push air in past the HDD and get to the important stuff GPU/CPU.

I'm thinking about selling my Corsair 550D and getting the R4 Black with window. How much room is their behind the motherboard tray for cables on the R4? On the 550D their is a good inch or so and I love that.

At best , you'd be making a lateral move.

Your existing case is a good one. Can't see one benefit in swapping, other than the Name

Cool Thanks. I am probably going to stick with my 550D for now....

Just water cooled my R3, surprising with any modding tongue.gif (well I drilled 1 hole, but that doesn't count). Removable HDD cage would have been nice so I could get more stuff in the case as there is not much room to move in there. However it was easy enough to mount the res and rad externally, which does ruin some of the case's prettiness frown.gif

Gotta say I do love these cases!

Next step for me will be mounting a 140mm rad on the bottom fan mount with push pull as there's enough space for it and will help when I get a water cooled GPU.

Hi All,

This is my complete R4, I have done a little bit of sneaky editing to hide the messy build area! let me know what you think!

post #4140 of 16053
So clean...really like that R4 good job. That power supply comes with those cables? Might have to get one to replace my annoying flat plasticy ones on my BeQuiet. I got those fans too, really great they are, love to get another for the floor intake, just using stock fan there atm.
