Ah yeah. It was the top two. Interesting. Running at 60% controlled by the BIOS now and it's pretty much a whisper. thumb.gif

I'm pretty sure Fractal stock fans have sleeve bearings, those usually make more noise when mounted horizontally. Sleeve bearings are cheaper so that's probably why they chose them.

They say they are hydraulic bearing fans. All mine are whisper silent

They don't have screws on the back like R2 does, but you can always buy some velcro/double sided tape and place it there to get the same effect.

Nice. I am also running a lot of radiator in my arc midi :-) 240x60mm and a 280x45mm. You are taking it one notch higher by also removing the top 5.25" bays and going with a 360 radiator up top. Guess you won't have much room for hard drives and such.

I have 4 drives 2, 2.5" SSD's mounted to the back of the motherboard, and 2 3.5" disk drives cleverly mounted in the top 5.25" bay. Then my optical drive (blu-ray), yes i still use it!

Love it! Seeing tons of radiator space crammed neatly into a tiny Fractal case is always exciting. Would love to see more! biggrin.gif

Just got one of these to store my HDD's and SSD's so that I can completely knock out the 3.5" cage for more radiator space, and one of these so that I can still work with optical discs (seems I'm a bit old fashioned!)

My Define Mini so far (no pics of new parts yet, sorry!):
