Re: Fractal Design Dynamic Fan Series

No I believe they are different than the R5. Here is the product page.

Looks like 1000 RPM is what they will do. So far very pleased with them. Just ordered one more 140MM one for the front of my Antec P380 case...

Fractal Design Dynamic Fan Series

Just wanted to let everyone know, I've just installed some new Fractal Design Dynamic GP12 and GP14 fans. The GP12 is the 120MM version and the GP14 is the 140MM version. Both are I'm glad to report very very quiet. And they also push a good amount of air. They feel really well built. And the price ...

Best Silent PC Build Yet :-)

I just built a new PC using a Fractal R5. I am using just 2 Akasa Black Apache PWM 120mm fans, one on the RAD for my corsair H55 CPU cooler and one as an intake. And let me tell you, this is by far the quietest PC I have ever built. I can't even tell its on. My Gtx 980 fans only come on when it gets...

Re: OK cooling or more?

OK cooling or more?

I setup my computer as being a silent one. Currently I have only 1 120MM fan connected to my RAD on my corsair H55 CPU cooler. That is the only fan in my system. The fan is the Akasa 120MM Apache PWM silent fan. Which is dead silent. I also have a MSI gaming Gtx 980 where the fans only come on when ...

How accurate are product specs?

I was looking at the Fractal R2 Silent 120MM Black out 120 mm fan. In the specs it says that its CFM is 66 and that its DBA is only 18 at 1300 RPM. I find that really hard to believe. How accurate are product specs usually? I also saw the Akasa Black Apache 120MM fan with 57 CFM at 18 DBA also at 13...

Re: Which case 550D or R4?

I actually went and ordered the Fractal XL R2. It looks like its got plenty of room behind the motherboard and lots of space on the inside. I just hope those 140MM fans are quiet :-)


EDIT: Never mind I cancelled the order. After measuring the case its way way to big. Maybe the R4 instead

Re: Which case 550D or R4?

I do like the 550D :-) but I thought something different might be in order. Just wasn't sure what most people were saying about the R4 in terms of cable management and quietness. I know on the 550D one thing I love is how much room you have behind the motherboard tray. Its like 2 inches which is per...

Which case 550D or R4?

Looking for a new case for a new build. Its either going to be the Corsair 550D or The Fractal R4 (Perhaps XL R2) Looking for clean looks, plenty of cable management behind the motherboard tray. And of course quiet :-)

Now I know they are about 300 RPMs more but they are certainly louder than the Sflex fans. And my temps are about the same with both. I t...

Scythe Slim 120mm Fan?

I need a 120MM slim fan for my CPU cooler. The normal 120mm fans would hit my memory heatsink. I was looking at the scythe 120mm slim fan and was wondering how quiet they really are? Or is their another brand that is really quiet, much more so then the scythe?

I played BC2 for a bit and load was around 53. Another excellent result. It seems a bit bigger than the twin turbo pro, taller ...
