Fractal Design Case Users Thread

  • mikefm Send Message View User Items on January 11, 2016 05:31 PM #

    Ilang decibels ba pagitan ng windowed and a solid side panel sa Fractal Define R5? Sobrang ingay ba kung windowed sya o wala naman masyadong difference?

    Not much daw, pero another reason why i dont want windowed cause i think its juvinile to look into your pc, whats iportant is the screen not your pc with kiddy lights.

    Other choices would be corsair carbide , or antec kung meron pa non, coolermaster silent


    Same reason I still love my black R2 XL even before di na ako big fan ng pc lights and I always put them under my table regardless of the case size.

    Case will be very quiet on non-windowed with sound dampening even if you are using stock fans. Replaced them with Corsair silent fans and it seems the same but a bit cooler.

    While playing games in crossfire mode with my headphones on... the only thing that makes noise in my room at night is my mouse (yes I use ergo silent keyboard).
  • there is a word for gamer led lights and wires. "tacky taste". I prefer the apple like design but I hate apple for locking up young pc.
    So i go, Fractal design which provides that. solid door models that the distributer refuses to sell.
  • So, should we still wait for the non-windowed version of Define R5?
  • might message fractal europe to tell our local distort to bring few again

    It's up to you really, as long as you have good ambient room temperature and don't plan to overclock then stock HSF is pretty much ok.

    Di lang sulit case kunwari in my case I have XL R2 then kung 1 GPU at 1 HDD lang gamit ko :)

  • Tanong lang po, sa settings ko sa mobo naka maximum yung fans speed, medyo maingay normal po ba? Thanks!

    Try using this. SPEED FAN, ok sya if you want to test fan speeds. ingat lang dont shut down all your fans.

  • Ano kaya mas okay dito sa dalawa in terms of dust protection, Arc Mini R2 or Design Define Mini? Pareho silang mabilis tanggalin yung dust filters kaya madali linisin pero ano kaya diyan mas effective? Also yung Arc Mini R2 has 2xUSB 3.0 vs sa Define Mini na may 2xUSB 2.0 + 1xUSB3.0. Same lang kasi price nila
  • mga sir san ba kinakabit ang fan controller ng fractal r2 mini? balak ko kasi bumili ng case na un kaya lang 2 lang fan header ng motherboard ko at 4 pin pa un. advice naman.
  • Magkakaroon kaya ng define nano s dito sa ph?
  • am I the only one here with a ARc midi r2?? hehe.. thinking of switching to h440 nzxt,. nakita ko tong thread. dami nyu nagpopost., wag na kaya switch? eheheheh

    I'm using arc midi r2 din. Mas gusto ko pa rin siya kesa sa h440 since mas mabilis linisin front intake niya and maganda air flow ng case. Pero kung aesthetics mas maganda itsura ng h440 especially yung white version.
  • Hehehe... Ilan fans gamit mo?all this time 3 fans lng nasa case ko kya pla ang init ng gpu...
  • 5 gamit kong fans (7 kung considered yung 2 sa heatsink ko).

    2 sa front intake, 1 bottom intake, 1 rear exhaust tapos isa sa top exhaust.

    Tinanggal ko na rin yung top hard drive bay para hindi restrictive yung airflow papunta sa video card ko.

  • ask lang nakaka experience ba kayo ng problema sa fan controller 4 times na kasi ng yare saken na kapag binago ko yun fan speed 5v to 12v nag BSOD pero bihira lang naman mangyare, im using Arc Mini R2 gamit kong fan yun stock fan kasama ng case and PSU ko seasonic x750 nag check nadin ako ng wiring wala naman maluwag hehehe
  • ^
    wag nyo nalang po baguhin. ung akin naka 12v lang e haha
  • ^ also check for grounds.

    my fan controller got burned within a week kasi nabunot yung connectors. had it replaced the same week and got grounded again. di ko na pinapalitan. hassle.

    ended up getting a deepcool fan hub. oks lang na full speed yung fans kasi tahimik naman, except for the muffling sound sa front due to filters. tahimik pa din. currently running four fractal silent series r2 fans, two front mounted, one at the back and one at the top. all run from the deepcool hub. recently added an nzxt fan mounted as intake at the bottom via mobo connectors.
  • @lorin1992

    gusto ko kasi while not gaming 5v lang 12v pag gaming heheh

    @joxsfunk

    tignan ko na muna siguro kung may pag babago nilipat ko yun molex connector sa ibang connector

    anong case gamit mo?

    May issue ang fan controller ng Fractal Arc Mini R2 / Arc Midi R2 / Define R4 na kapag naka-on ang PC at nag switch ka from 12v to 7v mag feedback ng power back into the 5v line. In some cases nakasira ito ng PSU or CPU ng gumagamit. More information below:

    If it is the same fan controller as R4 (very likely) then it works like this:
    12v mode: 12v from molex to ground
    5v mode: 5v molex to ground
    7v mode: 12v molex to 5v molex

    The problem is the 7-volt mod that Fractal Design used. They claim that it´s okay to force up to 15 watt of power backwards into the 5v line. It´s not a good thing to do according to these links:

    I have a R4 and FD Norton 600w PSU. When I used the 7-volt mod it destroyed my 4770k AND my replacement CPU G3225… and this is with their own PSU. The computer worked fine just up to the 7-volt mod. I contacted Fractal design about this but they can’t see a problem and they do not have the time to investigate it. I´ve wrote about it here but it’s unfortunately in Swedish:

    Since yung switch toggles from 12v to 7v to 5v hindi mo ma-avoid daanan ang 7v setting when switching from 12v to 5v. This causes the PC to hang dahil sa power feedback into the PSU.

    Suggestion ko ipirmi mo nalang sa 7v or 5v kapag gusto mo ng lower fan speeds at huwag mo na switch from 12v to 7v or to 5v while the PC is turned on.

    Pwede mo din gawin is send an email to Fractal Design support at sabihin mo na defective yung fan controller ng case mo. In most cases padadalhan ka nila ng updated fan controller board which does not have this problem. Here is one user who encountered the same issue and pinadalhan naman siya ng replacement fan controller board:
