I'm going to get a Arc Midi R2 (here's my config : http://www.ldlc.com/b-ad9cf216f2a55ce5.html
french website but prices in euro).
Should I get fan replacements ? I'm tempted by either 3 (or 4 with twin packs?) AF120 Quiet Editions (they're pretty cheap as well) or 3 AF140 Quiet Editions or even cheaper 3 or 4 Cougar CF-T14S ?
Are any of these options worth it over the stock fans which according to Hardware.fr are not that good (http://www.hardware.fr/medias/photos_news/00/40/IMG0040249.png
compared to be-quiet Shadow Wings i think).
Also what would be the best fan arrangement for my config, I doubt 1 intake out of 3 fans is optimal, so should I go for either 1 intake in the front, 1 at the bottom, 1 outtake at the top / bottom ? What improvement would get from 4 fans vs 3 ?
EDIT : Btw, I'll remove the top HDD bay, and will get a Samsung SSD on amazon (coz cheaper
). Also, all the fans are going to run at 7V using the built-in fan controller (and I have some left-over Noctua LNA adapters just in case).Edited by PointJpeg - 8/10/13 at 8:29am
