Btw those are NF-A14 but PWM or FLX?

these are the flx. i went with these because they had more rpm and i use a fan controller. don't be worried though,the pwn fans will work awsome to. i'm running prime95 right now at 50% fan speed to see my temp's. i might just be lowering my fan speed to 30%....which is just awsome!

@toyz72, thanks for sharing the stress test.

Im personally also waiting to see if noctua released the NH-D15, what should come with two NF-A15 PWM, the rest that im planning will be NF-A14 PWM, im kinda interested on Prolimatech MK-26 but will see, its so huge and heavy...

Btw if you were not to use the bottom hdd cage, could you still fit another NF-A14 on the bottom?

i am also interested in that vga cooler. my gtx 670 is the loudest thing in my case. i went ahead and ran prime95 again at 50% fan speed and it seems i gained 2c. i think its safe to say i can run at 30% fan speed with out issue.




i know noctua's are pricey, but being able to run such low fan speeds is pretty sweet. anyone who own's a FD case knows the filter's are pretty thick.

Exactly which is why it always surprises me when people by a case and decide to order a load of replacement fans ^^.

If anybody ever turns up with some convincing numbers let me know, I'm curious smile.gif

Here's a test you can try yourself:

Furmark, case as normal: my temps are 87C+ (didn't want to let it go over that).
Furmark, front filter taken off: 81C max

Fractal, why you do this?

if your referring to 3dmark basic(fire storm)? using all stock settings and 50% fan speed, my cpu hits 58c and gpu 75c. all filters are in,and i have no fan curves set up.

why dont you post your set up and maybe some pic's? then we could see what your working with thumb.gif

I can't post them right now, but I'll get them up tomorrow. Set-up is default Arc Midi R2 without top HDD cage.
GPU - 7870XT
stock amd cpu cooler (I know it's awful, am getting 212 Evo delivered on tues).

So fans are standard rear exhaust, on the top my back fan is exhaust, my front top fan is intake. Like http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Fractal_Design/Arc_Midi_R2/4.html

All fans are http://www.fractal-design.com/?view=product&category=4&prod=79

that cpu cooler should make a world of difference. maybe later down the road add some more case fans to. looking forward to the pic's. i like seeing amd builds.

I'm hoping it does, but then my GPU temps are still a problem. I don't want it going over 85C at most, and I can't manage that without removing the front filter (which improves GPU temps by over 7C, no small difference). With filters this thick I need something able to shift large amounts of air through them.

My AMD build is very old, CPU is a Phenom II X6 1055T biggrin.gif

You dont have proper cooling for your CPU to handle the heat. I dont have issues with temps. You want to add bottom, front bottom and addition top to increase airflow.
Once you get your 212, you can try to have the top set to intake too help increase airflow on the cpu area.
I used all Fractal 140mm R2 fans before switch to PWM, and temps were no different.
If your room is warm, your temps will rise.

you know, a nice Swiftech or XSPC or EK (shudder) kit will bring you closer to ambient for less noise...
