Radiator fans in pull, especially taking in fresh air, should cool that radiator significantly better than fans in push using recycled warm air.

Has anyone seen an externally mounted rad on a Arc Mini (that is where the plastic filter piece normally goes)? Thinking that a 280 might fit outside of the case.

How's the air to noise ratio? Would you recommend any other fans?

Quick question regarding the Arc Midi R2, does anybody know if it has any problems fitting the Phanteks PH-TC14PE?

Noctua's are pretty good on both, and I am happy with them. I haven't tried any other brands except for the stock Fractals, and the Swiftech's on H220. I am sure someone else can chime in that has better info.

Hello Members

I have an issue with air flow in my R3... I want to go quiet.

Here are my fans

2x140mm (one blade came off one of my fans so i prefer only to use one)
2x 120mm (stock fractal)
2x 120mm (corsair stock H80)

Currently I have 2 140 in the top (want to remove), the HDD rack has been removed, and I have the fractals in the front, the corsair fans are on the H80 and its pulling air from the case. There is negitive air flow at the moment, this needs fixing, i would prefer the H80 to be pulling air in for the rear but no biggie if it cannot.

I have a H80 cooler and running a 4.6 OC and temps are a sitting around 30 ~ 35º C and getting up around 80 ~ 90ºC in the worst case scenario. (In by dining room with 16 other people 4 rigs 6 Laptops, 4 Xboxs and some random test bench.) It has only over heated once (H80 died) and I would like to keep it this way.

So I am putting it in the hands of you guys (pros) to help me find the best solution for a quiet, cool and positive pressure air flow case.

Thanks guys!

I have the previous all biscuit colour ones before they put that brown/red on the edges, all in 140mm I find they are near silent and push quite a lot of air, about 60cfm to about 18db per fan so overall fairly good. I have 3 of these in my current system and only just hear the fans. Most of the noise in my current case comes from my CPU cooler and my GPU, if both are turned down fully you can barely tell the computer is on.

I've also had Xigmatec fans the black and orange ones with white LEDs and although I feel they push more air they are around 5-8db louder than the Noctuas.
