I think I heard someone say the Define S side panel is the same as the R4. I could be wrong but look into it.

Any Node 804 users have experience with the Swiftech H220-X, or have any other AIO suggestions that aren't Corsair? Have had bad experiences with Corsair AIO's, and the Swiftech is at the top of my list. I'm just not too sure about that pump...

I have a question I'm getting a fractal design arc mini R2 and I'm planning to take all the hard drive cages out plus the five and a quarter Bay and I was wondering for an HDD would I be able to put adhesive on the bottom of it and stick it to the bottom of the case so I don't have to use the hard drive cages?

Shouldn't be a problem unless you plan to use the bottom fan slot.

Any suggestions for replacing the rear exhaust fan on the design s? I run a 360 rad in the front so a lot of heat is pumped into the case and the gp-140 doesn't move the air fast enough, closed top. Thinking maybe a 140mm nocuta air flow edition.

I recommend Noctua industrialppc pwm fans. Make sure if you do go for one that you get a pwm version because the non pwm version isn't designed to run at lower rpms if you want it to be quiet.

Very much this. I'd go for the 2000rpm Noctua 140mm industrial PWM. Its extremely quiet up until around 75%, blends in with the rest of the case, and moves a TON of air. You might also look into adding an intake fan on the bottom to bring in fresh air.

Alright, but to be completely honest I think you're throwing good money after bad spending $30 on a fan to exhaust hot air without doing anything to bring in fresh air. No matter how many or what type of exhaust fans you add, your temps will only ever be as cool as the air coming in.

I'd suggest you consider rearranging things so that your rad exhausts out the top and you have fresh air coming through the front. If you,can do that, at the very least you need to open up one of the moduvents and set it to exhaust with the rear as intake.

Won't that simply take the rear's fresh intake air and immediately exhaust it out the top?
