[Official] Fractal Design Case Club - Page 938

post #9371 of 16068
Well my cases arrived, Fractal Design Define R4 and Arc Midi R2.



ill be building next next week once my ATX MSI Z87-GD65 arrives, im really interested into testing both more restricted/quiet oriented R4 vs the more open ARC MIDI R2. I want to test the following

1) 3x Noctua NF-A14 PWM on both cases (2 in two out)
2) 6x Noctua NF-A14 PWM (3 in and 3 out)
3) 7x Noctua NF-A14 PWM only on R4 to see if the side matter at all on single gpu.

I really want to see the temp and noise (although this will be more subjective).

I don't know if anyone else has asked them, but I emailed the NA (North America) Fractal Design sales department about the release of the Arc Mini R2. They said it should be available by early October, and that they'll make an announcement on social media when it drops!

Currently in my R4 I have the top two fans still covered/blocked by the dampening material. Config is both 140mm case fans at the from with 5v set, and at the back 2x SP120 Corsair silent edition fans in a push/pull config with an Antec Kuhler 620.

Question - is it better to leave those vents at the top blocked, or have them opened if I don't plan to buy additional fans?

I would leave them closed, if you dont want to put fans in the top.

Wow this is great!!!

I really cant decide which case to get and i'm actually between these two!!!

Could you please make some more HQ pictures of these two cases side by side?

Thanks!!!

IMO the midi r2 looks much better, especially the top.
