If you REALLY wanted to have it set up that way, it would involve using a dremel or something to cut out that little piece of the mounting plate at the bottom.




You are right. I measured it now and you need cut bottom frame of fan mount but that is not the big deal anway.

This 1 fan connector is a problem and i think that you will not be able to connet the power connector.

No problem.

It's worth testing out though because there was only a few mm in it and the Dom's have the angled corners, that might be just enough to squeeze it in. Not to mention there is a fair bit of room to move the rad around in the top of the Fractal Define S, so at the absolute worst you would need to drill 6 new mounting holes and you would be sorted.

Further to that it fits in the front of the Define S with a heap of room left over, i just didn't like the way it left my airflow through my case.

It really is crazy close, so if you are thinking of taking the plunge and getting one, i say do it

This build looks really good, Is this a define r5 case?
I have same case was worried the whole rad/fan assembly would hit the memory area on my asus 170 deluxe board

I'm pretty sure that sata connector is for the hub attached to the unit powering both fans and pump not the pump alone. When I up the rpms in the bios both the fans and the pump increase.

I'm not saying it's wrong to disconnect the pump and wire it straight to the psu just saying that's not the way it comes set up by default.

Also I'm well aware of how trial and error works in overclocking and finding the right fan curve for a particular system.

I don't think this will be a problem for you. Yes, that is the Fractal Design R5 Define with the Titanium front panel. See Jayztwocents and Paul's Hardware build of the R5 "Arctic Panther Custom Watercoler Final Build" they built with 2 EKWB, both 240 and 360 radiators and with all the other stuffs they put in it. Your fears will be laid to waste after seeing that great build😸.

no.. the most common cause of noisy pump is air trapped.... and controlling the pump speed is a useful tool... im not sure how you think controlling the pump will screw anything up.. its a tool just like controlling fan speeds... i personally run everything flat out... if its too loud then sound deadening material smile.gif

Ya'll are still missin this non dilemma. The pump on the EKWB units are powered by the SATA connector attached to the power supply connector. The fans are powered by the PWM connector on the motherboard. They are independent of each other and unaffected by each other. That is part of what is so wrong about crap like the Corsair h100i GTX thing:devil:.
post #1730 of 7180
No, ya don't want the motherboard powering two independent, variable power draws coming off of the same, especially the motherboard, connector. I've replaced AIOs because the pumps failed, read Corsair, for this very reason. Ya live and ya learn, do what ya will. If the pump is making any kind of noise, something is wrong and patching a symptom will not cure the problem. Either ya lean about the tech or ya don't:thinking:
