Noise Levels aren’t too bad but probably higher than normal due to all the vents on the case. It’s obviously not unbearable as the main noise comes from the CPU cooling fan, so if your CPU cooling fan is quiet then you won’t have any problem. The 120mm rear exhaust fan and the front 140mm intake are very quiet even on full load, and you really don’t hear them working. The included thermal diode sensor was placed close to the hard drive enclosure to check on the drive temperatures and it ranged between 35-36C.
Our system temperatures were at 34C-36C without any overclocking so it’s on par for an average user. The ventilation of the case is quite decent but you can’t expect real good cooling performance due to the limited size of the casing, therefore if you plan on overclocking the system this case won’t be your best choice.
Overall 3R System’s have done a good job with the R110. It’s aimed at the average user looking for some sleek styling to their casing at an affordable budget. The case has good airflow with the 140mm intake fan and the 120mm exhaust fan, and if you need more powerful ones you have the option to do that.
The aluminum 3.5” drive bay heatsinks are a great feature and if you’re running multiple hard drives on your system, especially a RAID setup; you can really take advantage of these heatsinks as it’ll keep all your drives cool.
For the average user the features offered by the R110 is very good but remember that this case isn’t designed for the hardcore user as the case doesn’t offer a great deal of room for additional devices than the most standard. The LCD panel in the front gives the R110 quite a unique look and the overall black finish adds more to its luster.
One of the current problems you as a user might find is buying one of these cases as 3R System’s seem to have a large presence in the European region at the moment than the rest of the world. This is surely going to change as more companies become aware of their products, however for the moment you will have to check on their website for available locations.
So if you’re on the look out for a good functional case with a sleek stylish design at an affordable budget give 3R System’s R110 a chance. They have really improved their designs since we last looked at one of their casing’s the Neon Light a few years back.
They have a wide selection of casings available on their website to cater to varying needs and budgets; we really did find the R110 to be a good performer for its intended purpose and certainly recommend it provided you’re fine with the minor drawbacks mentioned before.
