extremely clean, looks like a crazy expensive rig but is only 2k (don't get me wrong 2k is expensive but with all the back plates, cables and how clean it looks bumps it up a bracket)

Nice, once you get those Black chromax fans your build will look almost exactly like mine, but I got the mATX case. Waiting for my gpu heatsink to post.

You sellin the old case ? I’m wondering the best place to sell a used case.

killahertz357 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 15 months ago

Yes sir I cannot wait to put the 3x140mm in the front. Going to be some serious positive air flow throughout the case. Not that there isnt already haha

According to F-D site, you can’t fit three 140 at front, only two.

killahertz357 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 15 months ago

Yeah as I said I tested out fitting 3 of the 140mm fans that noctua gives for cpu coolers. So im ordering 3 of the black chromax ones and drilling new fan hole mounts ;)

Wolf88 4 Builds 3 points 15 months ago

Right on, did read that ;p I’ll be interested to see how it turns out !

Is there any way to get the D15 with the chroma fans? It looks great but by my math I'd be looking at over $140 if I had to get two fans and two covers.

zubmuffins 1 point 9 months ago

Look at it this way, when you swap the brown fans out, you can still use those on an old rig. I am doing just that with the brown fans serving as front intakes behind a mesh panel on a family member's PC. They're ideal for that role because of the high static pressure.

This is how I talk myself into buying all the Noctua fans I can get my hands on, lol.

Hey, I actually modeled my build after yours! I used the Asrock Taichi + Same Noctua Cooler Stuff. I thought it was elegant. I used all Noctua Chromaxs. Dual 140s top and front intakes. Can you show pictures of how you did the triple 140mm mod? I did not see any way to do it with the AF 15's and AF 14's.

How much did you spend on parts just to make everything match the color scheme? I'm pretty sure it's about another $80-90 just to get the Noctua cooler monochromed. Plus RGB lights, a white backplate for the graphics card, the Ryzen cover over the front middle fan, and the custom sleeved cables. Not to mention potentially paying more for the RAM and motherboard to get the lighting you wanted. I wish I had that kind of money to just throw at making things look prettier.

Yes. I also couldnt fit the second fan on the noctua cooler with the In Win case. It is more meant for a custom water cooling loop so I will be doing something with it in the future!

Dropped over 15c with the case on the CPU.

The GPU has suffered a tiny bit. Up from 55-60 during heavy stress like Heaven. But yes 10-15C depending. Its insane. The front intakes are very close to the cooler. I cant wait to get 140s stuffed in here. Will be able to with double sided tape or I may tap the holes for the fans. But it is possible with the CPU style noctua 140s in this case.

Have you tried installing your PSU with its fan facing down? Curious to see how your GPU temps fare with the change.

Yes. By about 5 degrees. The 303 had fans pointing a few inches from it so I figure its from that. Why do you suggest having the 120s in the front still vs the 140s?
