Are Extra Case Fans Needed for the Fractal Design Define R4

Hello,

Yesterday I ordered all of the parts for my PC build. For the case I chose the Fractal Design Define R4. Will extra case fans be necessary? Also, should I replace the fans on the Corsair H80i?

Thanks.

  1. No, you should be fine. But if you want better flow get some Noctua S12A´s or some Cougar CF-V12A´s.
    And as for the H80i, you don´t need any new ones. But if you want 1c better then get some Noctua NF-F12´s

    I can add extra fans on later, right? Because I hadn't budgeted for extra fans originally.

    Yeah of course. I did that with my NZXT 410

    Thanks! I've got a couple of more questions though if you don't mind.

    1. Which would have a bigger impact: replacing the H80i's fans or adding 2 more case fans?

    2. Would the Corsair SP120 quiet editions be good for the H80i? I can get two for $26 on Amazon as opposed to the pricier NF-F12's. They also look nicer. ;)
