Fractal Design R3's up on newegg - Page 2

post #11 of 21
This might sound like a stupid question but is it possible to remove those fans at the front and stick drive bays in there. If so it could be a really good NAS with hotswappable drive bay behind that door.

just curious.

Anything is possible. Hope you're good at modding.

Do these cases cool well? Also Does it effectively quite the innerds?

It does offer silence, as you can see in the pictures. There is sound dampening material all over the case. You could always add more low speed fans for more air flow. I believe 2-3 fans come included.

Thanks. Only concern is the sound dampening material keeping the heat in. Best configuration for this case would be all exhaust I guess. BUT $110 seems pricey

I was thinking the same, but I believe as long as you have some air intakeing from the front and bottom and exhausting out the back and top, then you should be fine.

Really good detailed review

edit: sorry thats for the R2 but they'd be pretty similar I assume.

The way the define's intake and exhaust air even w/ the sound damper actually keeps it pretty cool.
