Fractal Design OEM PCGH-CA-DEF-R4 ATX Midi Define R4 PC case (accessory)

Customer Review

After I've always bought complete systems, I am now completely "drawn" with a Medion in the new case to me to tinker a Silent PC and only exchange components. Here I use a
- OCZ SSD Vertex 4
- Seasonic Fanless Power Supply
- Passive graphic card Saphire Radeon 7750
and the fractal design housing in the PCGH Edition.

Main board, RAM, DVD burner and Intel Core 2 Quad CPU were taken. As CPU fan a Alpenföhn Civetta is used because a larger and thus quieter fans would still be possible. This was installed in me a computer store before I occupied myself properly with Silent components. Had I known how may be a fan replacement easy, I would have done this yourself.

The PCGH version is on the closed side walls and a total of a little more soundproof than the original version. So my main passively cooled system still has reserves cooling, I wanted to use the two fans as the Fractal housing, especially to still have reserves in the summer. However, everything should be a maximum noise insulation.

The system is used exclusively for Office and WWW, no games.

In the above configuration, the PC is extremely quiet, the CPU fan runs at 1000-1500 revolutions, which can be customized with Speedfan easily.
The built-in fan Fractal are quieter than my CPU fan at about 1200 rev / min in the lowest level.

Temperatures my cores are at idle at about 30 °, 35 ° GraKa. In normal use, I rarely see maximum values ​​up to 50 °, then I Regulate the Alpenföhn possibly even after. The case fan, or at least I could forward to probably loose unplug. A maximum test with Prime OAE. I see, however, not necessary to, so I have it no values.
In the previous simple standard plastic case, temperatures were already in idle at about 50 ° with the same configuration.

The case looks very chic. I like the front door, behind which there are DVD drive and the Lüftersteuerug. The incorporation of components was done for me as a beginner intuitively within about 4h. However, I also do not put so much emphasis on a particularly good cable management. The main thing, the cooling performance is not affected by clutter. Since, however, let the cable mostly lay behind the motherboard, it works very well.

Very good I like the USB connectors on the top and the power button because they are so easy to reach for me (unlike before, where the Power Button was down).

To treat now a desired Silent Office PC nor the last kick "calm", appearance and functionality, this case is in my opinion worth its price. However, of course, have the other components be designed to wonder will this housing can not accomplish.
