post #5311 of 15992
Almost done with my Node 304! Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics and yes the graphics card will be updated for Crysis 3. Wire management is a pain and please forgive the free floating SSD. That will get the velcro treatment tomorrow. Think I did decent with the wires. Any input will be great and also considering a 120mm exhaust on the top and flippign the h80 fans around to get cleaner air in the rad. What do you guys think?

Velcro to the side of the PSU, and pull the airflow into the case through the radiator.

Perfect! Then I will add the 120mm Exhaust on top.

Just my opinion, but having all the fans flowing inward, helps push the PSU exhaust out of that little mesh panel. Not much air in these boxes anyway, but I would not think another exhaust fan would help too much. Unless your after just modding the case.

From NCIX

Yeah I found some there but they are 14.42 + 8.00 shipping.. That's $22 a fan! I'd spend $66 for 3 of them! Hopefully I can find a better deal elsewhere.

I will give that a try first. Rather not cut it. Thanks for the advice!

I'd try several different configs and find out first hand which works best for your system. thumb.gif

Hello all, I have a question. I own both the R-4 and Define Mini. I am looking for the best setup to keep the GPU's cool in each setup.

R-4 current fan setup Both Fractal R-2 140 placed in the front for intake controlled with the fan controller at 7V, Artic F14 140 on the rear exhaust controlled from the motherboard and XIGMATEK XAF-F1451 140 exhaust on the roof also controlled on the motherboard. Would it be better to move the Xigmatek to the side panel for exhaust or intake ?

Define Mini current fan setup. Both Fractal R-2 120 for intake. One controlled from motherboard while the other is just connected to the PS. Antec Cool quiet 120 controlled from the motherboard. Should I add another fan ?

The R-4 houses a I5 3570K and EVGA 670FTW while the Mini houses a I5 3450 and EVGA 660TI SC. NO OC is going on both systems. I removed the top hard drive cages on both setups to increase airflow.

I am open to suggestions and fan replacement options. I want a quiet system but also want them to stay cool through long hour gaming sessions.

As promised here's a TY-140 cut from 152x141mm to 141x141mm
I know, it's black and they didn't make black housings on TY-140.. It's painted, so deal with it. biggrin.gif
Cut with sliding compound miter saw with fine tooth finish blade. Plastic cut nice and clean. Cut so the 2 ribs going around in the outside are just cut off to the main body of housing. I cut off a little more than I wanted.. like 0.2-0.3mm too much. wink.gif
