The front door(s) dont open fully. So..you open the main front door..then you have the second one to the front intake fans..which opens less than the main. Now, you have to pull some tabs and open that door up to remove the fans. Yea. I'll have to take a pic. It is as crazy as it seems. Another note, is that it is not water cooling friendly. Yes, I know. I'm not water cooling. But just using a AIO. But you an only use a single 120/140 mount type. No chance of the H100 unless you do some extensive mods.
I will say that the sound deadening is top notch. I put in a old 4890 and turned it on. No CPU no ram. But knowing my 4890 it was going to to go full 100% fan speed. I wanted to see how loud it was. Man, I was impressed.

Overall its a OK case. Definitely shows its age in design before AIO became popular. But as a air cooling case I think it will be awesome.

List of items needed to finish it:
1: 8pin CPU power extension
2: Ram - Any DDR3 sticks
3: More beer...

I like my Define XL R2, I also think this one is ok. They did give you the option for a descent amount of water cooling with the R2 rev, so that is nice. It does take a long 8pin cable to get to the top of the case still, but i guess that's what happens when a case is that size. For the price I have definitely been pleased with it.

I was thinking that the top can be modified. Just a matter of cutting a large hole in it and getting some kind of nice grill. But as for putting a rad in the front. Would have to do quite a bit of modding. I just need a decent lil air cooler for the 1090t. It will be staying at stock clocks. Plus since it will be just folding the 7950. I can even disable two cores. That way F@H will have two cores for the GPU and two to keep Win7 happy. Was thinking of just getting a CM 212+Evo or something like that.

Nothing. I'm leaning towards the mobo

I have a Corsair H100 in the front of an Antec 300 case. If the rad fits in the front dual fan spot it's possible. You will have to lose the HDD cage though.

Damn. Was this the same one you have been using? Or a new one?

Doesnt work for the Define XL. The bottom of the case has a split floor. Plus, the front plastic door that holds the dual 140mm fans is some weird plastic setup that I wouldnt trust trying to keep a H100 rad stuck to it. Also the H100 coolant lines are so short. They wouldnt reach.

Oh I know. But I want to make it a "quiet" folding machine. So less area for sound to escape the better. Like I said. I'm going to be keeping the 1090t under air at stock clocks. The system will sit under one of my desks in the corner headless once done. Now, if only DDR3 prices would come down..holy moly.


Cheese: Just keep us informed with what you get figured out. If I dont hear much by tomorrow evening. I'll see about temping in your spot. I should be back under the H100 by tomorrow night.

Edit: Canceled this - Side note: Just put a "order" for a Sapphire 270X Vapor on Amazon. Price $229? That sound good? Not really to fold. Guess I could have it on the side. But so I can game on since my 7950 is dedicated now. I looked up reviews and it seems it basically the same as a 7950 in games. Which is fine for me. They are out of stock. But will charge when its going to ship. So if that 270X is going to be kaput, let me know while I have time.
