Would this thing fit in a Fractal Design Define XL R2?

I see the R3 and R4 listed on the NZXT compatibility guide, but not he R2.

Here's a link to the guide https://www.nzxt.com/uploads/downloads/manuals/Kraken_Compatibility_Guide_09.4.2013.pdf

The X61 is amazing. I actually had the good fortune to test the X41 and i have to say its pretty amazing. I was able to do so much with the CAM software when it came to controlling the colors. the fan speed and checking temperatures... NZXT is getting so much better with their proprietary software and their special offerings. im sure we will probably be seeing a line of CAM controlled items emerging from their company soon. The other AIO units would probably be wise to get on this bandwagon and try to find similar solutions to their systems...

Im hoping for a CAM sentry lol.. i love having that heads up display on front of my PC of course just for looks smile.gif CAM takes the need of a heads up away

Is the Swiftech H320 still top dog of AIO units in terms of purely temps?

Thanks. Weird though you would think it fits in a bigger chassis that is otherwise the same as the R3 and R4. Maybe they've just taken the most popular ones on that sheet. I might just take the plunge. Do you think the difference between this and the h100i would be palpable?

Can't find a dealer for it here in Denmark yet though.

I watched your video on the kraken x-61 a few times already. I'm building my first computer, and I have some questions for anyone who reads this. I'm building with an MSI x99s sli plus mobo. That mobo has a backplane that I'm not supposed to remove according to someone on the MSI web site forum. The mobo has holes in which I screwed in the four Kraken x-61 posts to place the kraken x-61 pump over. Have you ever heard of a mobo like this where you don't remove the mobo backplate and replace it with the plastic backplane that comes with the kraken x-61? The kraken pump and bracket will fit on the four posts, but I haven't attached it yet because I want to make sure it's okay to do it this way. I don't want to have to remove the pump and mess around with cleaning the heatsink and applying that sealant.

Your tutorial helped me a lot, but I' still unsure where the kraken x-61 cables go.

Hello, i have a thermaltake core v71 case and plan to mount this on top of the case.
Can i keep the 200mm fans of this case and use them in a push pull configuration with the 140mm fans of this cooler?
Also i have 2 noctua 140mm fans, if the push pull with the 200mm fans is not good idea is mixing the noctua fans with the kraken fans any better?
