Not much work was put into mounting the 360 rad to the top.
45mm thick radiator fits like a glove. blocks a bit of the motherboard at the top, but i dont see any problem in that, i can take my whole loop out of the case in few minutes if i needed.
Had to drill the rivets in the optical bays, since i don't have a dremel, i left the top as is ( only blocking ~50-60% of the last 120mm fan.
Though if i will take that system apart someday again, i'll borrow one from a friend, could use some additional airflow from the top.
Right now working on a mod to get a lamptron fan controller front mounted, since i dont have 5.25" bays anymore i have to make a custom bracket to mount it in the front.

Any other recommendations? I am looking mainly for fans with high CFM and under 30 dBA.
Have a mate who put them in his new R4 and he's happy. He hooked them up with his CPU PWM fans with Gelid PWM splitter so their rpm runs up and down with cpu fans.

I've been doing this for over a year in my R2. All fans in mine are controlled by PWM signal from mobo CPU PWM fan socket. You just need fans of similar rpm ratings if you expect them to run same speed.

I am currently running 2x TY-143 (800-2500rpm) on cpu and 3x TY-140 (900-1300rpm) case intakes. Both will idle down close to 600rpm.

For an idea of what different fans will run I put in the below comparison of Thermalright TY-140/143 and Akasa FN053 (500-1500rpm). RPM will very some depending on filters, cooler resistance, etc. These were open space speed using same PWM signal on all 3 fans, then change speed/signal and check again. It is by no means a scientific test.

I did some mods about a month ago an now have TY-140 fans in front instead of the 120mm that it came with.

Have sense made it much nicer. Will do some pics tomorrow.

Thanks for the reply doyll.

Have you ever used or heard anything good about Arctic fans?

Round 6 Fan Testing (Working Thread)
Fans!!!! The most complete and comprehensive array of tests and benchmarks

Apparently from Tator Tot's Testings Arctic uses Rifle bearings and not FDB as they claim they are.

Their fans also appear in various fan roundups such as XBitLabs'.

They are fairly good have have an awesome value, I can find them for 5€ here (an AP-15 costs 14€, another good 120mm fan is 10-12€)

Thanks for the links, but I think I'll pass on them.

What about the NZXT FZ series fans? Does anyone own these or find some reviews on how they perform?
post #4968 of 16056
Going to be getting 2 new R4's for mine and my brother's new builds. Would you guys recommend adding a 3rd fan or is the stock cooling adequate enough?

you couldn't be more vague.

Are they going to be overclocked?

makes a difference you know.

Oops, sorry.

Specs:

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($169.99 @ Microcenter)
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14 65.0 CFM CPU Cooler ($69.99 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($104.99 @ Newegg)
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($39.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($93.99 @ SuperBiiz)
Storage: Samsung 830 Series 256GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($189.90 @ B&H)
Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 670 2GB Video Card ($329.99 @ Newegg)
Case: Fractal Design Define R4 w/Window (Black Pearl) ATX Mid Tower Case ($119.99 @ Amazon)
Power Supply: SeaSonic 650W 80 PLUS Gold Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($89.99 @ Newegg)
Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer ($19.98 @ Outlet PC)
Monitor: Dell U2412M 60Hz 24.0" Monitor ($279.99 @ Newegg)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (64-bit) ($99.99 @ Newegg)

The 2nd system will be the same but with a 7850 and lacking an SSD.
Will probably do a moderate overclock on the CPU, 4.2 GHz or something around there.

I plan on removing the top drive cages to optimize airflow, does it matter if the drives in the bottom cage don't have a fan blowing directly on them? Or will adding a fan there make a large difference?
