Yes it's the 240 of the h100i (I might change that and include the CPU to the custom loop) and I did had to offset it, not because of my ram but because of the CPU 8pin connector of the Rampage IV.

Well right now I have the two fractal one shipped with the case. I was looking for some good 140mm fan for rad (high mmH2O) but didn't found the one yet. My OCed lightning are cool enough anyway and those Fractal fans are deadly silent even @ 1000rpm (0.84 mmH2O at this speed)
I wish the NB eloop fan comes in 140!

Considering these as I've seen a few people use them including the Dream Machine on MaxPC.

If I could ask please share fractal 3000 pics people. Especially inside cable management. give me some ideas !

I have been wanting to post my core 3000 here for a long time but I'm too shy since I'm new.

So I had to suck it up just so that I would be able to get some inputs from the good people of OCN so here it is with dust and all.



This here is the 8pin issue I have been having with it. So its just there for now till I get sleeves smile.gif



Dont mind that piece of weird wood there tongue.gif



So those pics uptop was before I removed the fan grills on the front. This would also sound ridiculous but I pushed my fan controller inward and hid it with the foam and mesh.
It was too bright frown.gif I am thinking of changing it to something better.

This is the front panel now. Everything else is the same on the inside tongue.gif


Plans:

Sleeves or Sleeved Extensions
Change MOBO into an ATX
Get SSD
Remove Bottom HDD and transfer it to the 5.25Bays
Plexi Side Panel
EKG84's Front Panel well somewhat like his anyways!

Here you go enjoy guys!

I know about the 3000 being quite compact... but it''s what I wanted when I bought it, I hate big cases and this one looks very big already in comparison to all the OEM stuff I've had before. wink.gif

BTW, did you update the firmware of the SSD? ~ has some additional speed boosts.
Yeah. Updated it to 1.2 no problem thumb.gif

Just sent my Arc Midi to the PC scrap yard in the sky. Salvaged a few things off of it that I'll use to make my R4 better. I'm going to be drilling a few holes in the rear of the optical bays and re-use the small circular grommets so it'll make it easier to hide the cables. Also going to be using a few of the other grommets to make cable management easier. I sold both side panels, top panel, front panel and I/O to my friend who is going to use them to experiment with a few mods he has planned.

I have not been overly impressed by three stock R4 fans, BUT I am also using them behind the front fan filters. This is not a good arrangement as the stock fans are not high static pressure fans and front fans on the R3 / R4 case have a lot of restriction to overcome. My main annoyance is that they are not quiet at all, even dropped to 7 and 5v.

I also have to give credit where it's due to Fractal: the front fan mount is very secure and doesn't appear to transmit much, if any, vibration to the case or air as audible noise.
