Swapped that POS out for a Corsair RM650 some months ago. The XFX was loud as ****.

The main issue with the 650D is that it only has one 200mm intake. The stock 200mm fan I found to be slightly lacking, and aftermarket 200mm are few and far between, and quality of which I was not entirely happy with. 

 

The r4 has a slightly smaller form than the corsair, but it fits more fans, and the position of the top fan vents means that the top radiator is placed slightly forward to the motherboard - meaning push-pull on the H100i is possible - Unlike in the 650D.

 

All in all, very happy with the r4!

I'm running the stock Silence Series R2 fans (with another one added to the front) and the thing is basically silent. Running the fans as low as they can go of a BitFenix Recon. The loudest thing in my system when idling is my PSU (which should have some 0dB magic-mode, though i call BS on that).

Yeah the stock fans you get with the R4 are excellent. Wish it would come with more, but can't complain given the price - I already had noctuas around so replaced them. The exhaust will fit a 15mm NF-A15 pwm perfectly.

 

I had a 120mm corsair AF120 fan (silent edition) which I'd been using as exhaust in the 650D - I now use that as the bottom intake. Unfortunately that fan is loud as hell - probably the loudest thing in my set up. One thing I've learned is how much silence is golden!!

 

Btw I like that fan controller beneath your optical drive - does it control all the fans in your sys?

 

Also props on the noctua cpu cooler - I think that beats a H100i and keep up with the most other radiators.

Yes, i have all of my fans (5) on separate channels. All are running as low as they can go, The Fractal's are running at 500RPM and the Noctua's at 600RPM.

Crisp highs, and they can give you a real rumble if bi-wired or with some good jumpers.

Had them pitted against a pair of $3000 Amphions and they were very close though the setup we tried them with was more suited for the Amphions. I haven't tried the newer version the DM685 S2 though they should preform just as good an maybe a little better. Though you can't go wrong with the first revision and you may even get them for a steal since the newer version is out.

Awesome, thanks for the reply.

How similar do you think this pair is?

Identical. The "B" is just indicating what colour the speakers are.

Are these clean desk/rooms the norm? Mine always looks like a hurricane hit it. 

post #9069 of 9275

Got a new desk over the weekend so I everything is neat enough not to be ashamed of for the moment. (Room not big enough to get the whole desk in the photo). You can kind of see the desktop underneath with all the spaghetti.

 

 

An couple old rig photos :wink_face:

They may be the norm for OCD/anal folks. I'm OCDish but have very little time to deal with the "hurricane-like" mess due to having a 3.5 yr old to deal with. I also get lazy and rather do stuff on my workstation vs. cleaning it up, which seems to be an annual ritual instead of weekly like some folks here. ;)
