Make or buy a fan grill for 2 fans, and rig it to the front of the case somehow.

LED.. cooler, no converter to hide, and light-weight so will stick well with little ds-tape.

not knocking the AP-15 fans, but why?
way easier to hang the 140 fans without jacking up the front panel or making brackets
to mount to the chassis.
heres and alternate:
Swiftech Helix 140.. similar AP-15 blade look but in a 140mm pattern.. and still
cheaper than an AP-15.. to boot!
i just traded all my AP-15 for Swiftech Helix 120 PWM so they all would match as well.

Was not overly impressed with the "cheap" controller, nor was I satisfied with header control of fans.
Back to a manual controller, and sound most defiantly not an issue. Virtually inaudible while surfing
and easily jacked up for the big-boy stuff.
Doubt you'll encounter heat issues with the fans you've listed

how you put the HDD over there?

The problem is not the Fans
I want to use the Scythe anyway becuse is the Theme Like this

Tommorow i can buy anything i want from 140
but i want the scythe that why
its going to be grey-black-white something like this

That why i want to put at least the 2 120 on the front

Guys I got an R4 build ready to finish this weekend, how does this look:

CPU: I5-3570K
Mobo: ASUS P8Z77 V (Techpowerup 9.0/10)
Ram: 2X4G Samsung MV-3V4G3D/US (Yes, this is the 30nm OC maniac,techpowerup 9.8/10)
Cooler: PH-TC14PE_BL
GPU: Gigabyte N670-OC-2GD(in SLI, Techpowerup 9.8/10),Tom's recommended buy.
SSD: Samsung 830 256GB(Techpowerup 9.5/10, Tom's best SSD for $$,Techreport.com editor's choice )
Case: Fractal Design Define R4 Arctic White(Techpowerup 8.9/10, HTL.com editor's choice, adding 2-4 140mm fans)
PSU: Seasonic X750 Gold

p.s I have a 2 TB External for my back-ups and video, so I am going to back panel mount my SSD and remove both HDD cage to maxmize airflow. If I want a HDD later I will buy a 5.25" to 3.5" kit.


Status: Already have CPU/Cooler/SSD/PSU/GPU, waiting for the other parts coming in this Friday.
Accessories(already have):
24X DVD Burner(LG)
Microsoft wired Keyboard & Mouse(USB)
ASUS VG278H 120Hz monitor w/ 3D Vision 2 Kit

This is my plan to get a SGP(Silent Gaming Platform), goal is for it to be inaudible at idle and not noticeable in game(Battlefield 3). OC Target is about 4.6-4.7Ghz. Might experiment with a windowed panel later.

So is this set-up good? I made sure to read through available reviews everywhere and pick products with good reviews.

More detailed build & tuning log/benchmarks + Photos to come this weekend.

Once I get this build done I want in the club.

SO got my Define Mini in today got it all together. It was a pain taking off back panel and putting it back on, too tight but I got it done. Super pissed though as when I buttoned it all up and pulled off the front plastic there is a 2-3 millimeter size deep scratch or ding in the front. Its small but way noticeable with that brushed look. Plus I'm OCD so its gonna bother the crap outta me. Hopefully they can send me a new front panel, like Rosewill did when I bought a case from them that had a broken front panel.

Other than those issues I really am enjoying the case. I'm folding 100% load right now and can barely tell its on. And surprisingly my temps have not gotten any worse. I thought for sure they would jump up around 5c being I only have 2 intake 1 exhaust compared to my Antec 300 4-1 fans.

I am a fan of fractal for sure now. My only other gripe is the bottom cage is not removable unless forced.

Case on caster base. Bottom left the shadow shows how back is lower than sides so filter can slide in & out. The little triangle pieces on inside are to help index a magnetically attached Silvestone filter under middle bottom fan. Much easier to take off and clean than stock filter that's built into case.
