HOW?! that's unfair frown.gif

Turns out if was wrongfully labeled.
Because of people saying it wasn't available yet I decided to contact the shop and ask if it was actually a Mini and not a Midi got a response saying the title was wrong and they gave me a discount code for the trouble, lol.

I have just purchased a second Asus GTX 670 DCU II and now I'm thinking that I really need to get some decent fans for my R4.

I have used the Corsair AF140 fans in the past but wasn't that amazed by them (still have 2).

At the moment I have 5 of the stock fans and they are quiet but don't move much air and some of them are quite clicky which is very annoying.

I was looking at getting the Phobya Nano-G 14 Silent Waterproof 1000rpm 140mm Fan but when I read reviews people said that it was quite load when placed on a grill or radiator.

Is anyone here running these in their R4?

I can get them for just over £5 each so they're fairly cheap.

Thanks.

just be careful, they don't start at 5V (lowest fractal integrated controller can get), they need more...

edit; Got the side panel off after pulling super hard on it. It won't go back on smoothly at all and it won't come back off smoothly. God damn it.

I don't like Noctuas and haven't thought about the other three.

I have just ordered a Corsair H100i and an additional AF140 to go in the rear.

I'll see how I go with these and if they're naff then I'll look into alternatives.

Thanks though thumb.gif

Finally decided that my Arc Midi R2 is share-worthy. Next up, PSU sleeving?? I need to keep myself busy while I try to not spend money on upgrading the main components. smile.gif






To make room for the reservoir I put my WD Black HDD up in the 5.25" bay below my DVD drive:



However it is suffering from some heat issues up there. It got up to 49C last night with 78F ambient, which is within operating spec but still seems too high to me. I am used to my HDDs being in the 35-40 range. I ordered this to help but I don't think it will do much. I don't want to mess with installing additional fans up there if I can help it. Does anyone think swapping the position of the HDD and DVD drives, or removing the DVD drive entirely, would also help it stay cooler? If I can't get it to stay around 40C in the drive bay, I am considering bringing back the bottom HDD cage, which would kill the aesthetic I'm going for. But I don't want to cripple the drive's lifespan either.

Same question I have man. I decided to install the bottom HDD cage back in, but I want to take it back out! tongue.gif I really do think it kills aesthetics too. I remember Sp33dy recommending this before:

Hell, I might just get it. It does help cool the HDD and even has a nice design in the front that would be kind of close to my Midi R1 panel.
