My last case was a CM Stacker 830 with almost every fan slot taken up, so I am not worried about wind noise. I bought the R4 because it looks amazing and feels great, and cost $80 shipped.

Heres a rough idea of what I am going to try first (2 front fans at max rpm/rear @ lowest rpm):



What would you guys do if you weren't too worried about fan noise and had 6 AF140's and 2 included fractals?

I'd use the side as an exhaust.you'd still have positive pressure and no filter required.. but try both ways and see what gets better temps.. side panel fan is the easiest one to flip

Just modded my fractal core 1000 front panel. First time I've ever done something like this. Still waiting for some things before I can finish the build
