Has anybody used the Fractal Design Core 3500 case? It seems to be a scaled down Define R5, with no door and all 140 (or 120)mm fans. The top grills are always open - this may be the thing I would be worried about. The Define R5 has room for 8 hard drives, which is just nuts, while the Core 3500 has room for 4; along with the same 2 SSD spaces behind the motherboard. More than enough drive bays.

The front edge intakes look a bit restrictive, but maybe they are still big enough to work well, and having the bottom (filtered) intakes do more "work" may be a good thing.

Probably, Neil, but not me :mrgreen: : meanwhile you might look at some temp measures with silent hw and watch average guy brief video "review" (Hexus and Cowcot may offer some further light readings too).

So, Linus says it is a no go. I will take his word for it.

Never mind!
