I have this case, it's not meant for quiet builds but for airflow and enhanced cooling qualities hence the mesh design. Great case regardless and looks great without the excessive RBG LEDs. Be careful when handling as the white paints chips quite easily.

Nice case if your not interested in RGB otherwise the H500 or P400A are probably better bets.

These are the three cases I have been looking at for my next build.

P400A is a really nice case. It's a bit tight top and buttom of the motherboard, especially if you add some additional fans. Make sure you get at least 120mm for the rear, as it pulls out quite a bit of heat.

(Or you can do what I did and get 2 X 140mm for the roof and a 120mm for the rear )
P400A ftw!!

Thanks, what fan(s) would you recommend?

I ask because there are many conflicting reports about negative pressure and so forth actually making cooling worse, especially for the GPU.

I replaced all the fans in the case with Deepcool CF120's / CF140's. The stock ones are not PWM and I wanted them all to be the same so the fan profiles were consistent. You can buy the P400a stock fans separately (Skiron fans I think?), but they were somewhat difficult to track down at the time.

I haven't noticed any negative pressure issues. The dust filters on the top would have picked something up by now. I have 6x120mm fans on the front, attached to a 360mm AIO rad, push / pull. 2x140mm on the top and 1x120mm on the rear. They're all linked together through a hub, and I've set a custom curve to reduce noise.

The rear top 140mm and rear 120mm move some heat, but the front 140mm not so much. Might actually be causing turbulence issues, but I have it for the Aesthetics.

GTX1070 60 under load.
3700x (with PBO) 40-50 while gaming, 68 while stress testing.

Look good, very tidy looking build, exactly what i'm looking for

Probably gonna go with a 3700x too, just waiting on the X570 Tomahawk and new GPUs before I go ahead with it.

I have just built my first system few weeks ago using the P400A as well, and the case is great. Just wondering if 6 fans are a bit excessive. I am using 2 in 2 out, with similar RPM on all of them.

To OP, I am using artic F12 and be quite pure wings 2.

Thanks! The cable management was a bit tough with all the RGB (extensions and splitters came in handy), but got there in the end.

I've got a h510 Elite build coming up for my partner, so I'm looking forward to seeing how it compares.

Great choice in motherboard! The 3700x has been brilliant. I rebuilt my system after my i5 4690k motherboard died. Big difference, hits 4.3ghz with PBO.

I'm waiting for the 3000 series too to upgrade the 1070. Planning on reusing that on a NZXT H1 build in the future.

If you go with the P400a I'm sure you'll be happy. I almost went for the Meshify C but decided on going for the extra GPU clearance in the P400a just incase (coming from a Corsair Carbide Air 240, where that was a struggle).

Best of luck with your build!

6 fans is definitely excessive. I went for push, pull because I had the fans spare, and it means i can run them at slightly lower RPMs.

I would definitely recommend a 3rd fan for the front if you can though.
I've got the black meshify and I mostly love it.

One issue - I've got an X62 aio which is mounted on the front of the case but my 1070 strix doesn't fit with both cooler fans on.

So, I have to opt for one aio fan, at least until I get a new gpu.
Looking for a deal on the mini for my media pc too.

Got my mid tower for £60 from scan a few months ago and looking for something similar.

I was thinking about that, but I have realised that I have bought 140mm instead of 120mm only after everything had arrived. So I decided to keep the build this way for now, and used both of the 140mm for the front.

Ahh that's fair enough, not too bad then. 2x140mm is definitely better than 2x120mm.

What about p400a digital that comes with 4 120mm fans?
Like everyone here says, gamernexus viewers, you need 2 140mm fans on the front.
venomous_REAPZZ15/05/2020 23:21

What about p400a digital that comes with 4 120mm fans?


That's what I have. It comes with 3x120mm RGB fans not 4. They're also not PWM.
I've used the MTALLICGAR metallicgear Skiron fans which are the fans I believe phanteks use for the P400A case. They can all be daisy chained to the case.
I’ve got the black version with 2 x 140 Corsair LL’s in the front. 1 x Corsair LL120 at the back and the stock fan up the top. I removed some of the foam dust filter at the front and used mesh dust filters instead. Runs nice and cool and a lot quieter thank a lot of people will have you believe.
Best case I had hands down. Smaller than most but roomier. Don't how they did it!
Tempting for my upcoming living room build but was after something smaller... Hmm...
Have one of these running a 9700k at 5.1Ghz, and Gigabyte 5700XT.
Cooled by Dark Rock Pro 4, 120mm GP-12 fan in the front facing the gpu and the second 120mm lining up with the Dark Rock in the back, nothing in the roof.
Nice and quiet in normal operation.
The fans are audible while benching with cpu at 200W and gpu at full chat, but it all stays cool.
Nice easy build and a great case.
Mine's black - I think white looks like a beer fridge, but that's just me!

Snap. However I might push the boat and go 3900x for 12C
If only I had not upgrade my 750d.....
Tavacas can you keep an eye out for me on a define mini c? All black one, no tempered glass. Thank you

Needs extra fans or its a bit of a hot box for a mesh case


And a few extra dust filters for the front, the foam mesh for front intake isn't the best. I installed some extra ones and they've stopped so much dust
Awful thermals for a mesh case. No thanks.
