I did come out with a solution for keeping the SSD/HDD out front and on the bottom of the case, which I will showcase in my Hawaiian Heat Wave build log (in sig).

I also agree with you ebduncan, should have done more research before buying. I would have been happy with two 240mm rads but the two r9 290s (not withstanding my screw-up on the GPU thermal pads) were just too hot for the water loop and required more rad space.

Things certainly heat up in my setup and I only have one R9-290, and a FX-8320@5ghz. Honestly I wouldn't mind adding another radiator. I will probably end up building a custom radiator enclosure, and just put everything in it (pump,rads, fans)

might be something to think about.

Yeah, I've been considering modding the case to include that extra 240mm rad instead of having it sitting around doing nothing.

Well I have read that the 280x runs a bit hotter anyways, and this is a normal thing that this gpu can handle. Whether or not this is entirely sound information I cannot stay, but I have two 660's in the same case as you(windowed version) which I just put these components in last week from the 922 haf(high air flow) and I will be honest this Define R4 case keeps the components as cool as or cooler than the 922 yet at a way quieter noise level. i just ordered a more individualized fan controller today for this case since I have roughly 4 fans installed excluding the cpu fan and waiting for the brackets for cooler master so I can add a second one for push pull configuration. I wanted to ask how the Enermax performed and if you have the non silence version that can be found on the cpu cooler? because I have been considering buying two of them for the heat sink if the airflow and pressure was decent? but now that I have the controller coming in I am not so certain. Any feedback about the fans and being int he Define R4 chassis would be appreciated and welcomed, thanks and hope you are enjoying the gpu and case.

The problem wasn't fixed and still a design issue. NF-A14 PWM higher cost, but you get nice silent fans with no PWM tick at any speed. Which is what I like, and the big reason to get them.
Any fans up against filters or grills will have increase noise.

Fractal Define R4 chassis was used as the new case for my home computer. I absolutely love this computer case

*

So I finally got the chassis which I got for the phenomenal price of 75 dollars then had another two of the r2 silence 140mm fans for just 10$. I wanted to say the seller I bought these from is a hero for people like me who could not find the case they wanted in their budget and was just plain tired of the 922haf(which was a case that is decent but something they never would of chosen given the chance, knowing what they know now).

I installed a silent 140mm fan with blue led as a rear exhaust fan, and then before installation of the motherboard with the Hyper 212 plus heat sink I added the CM Sickle and flow blue led fan(now it is not my ideal fan I would of rather a blue led fan with pwm and better static pressure but I got these fans for 5 bucks a piece) and will be adding another for a push pull when the bracket comes in from Cooler Master. I still have 2 fans from Fractal that I got from the seller of the cases, and I wanted to know if installing the 140mm fans on top as an exhaust and one as a intake is plausible with the components still inside? because I am going through some serious medical crap that just happened and cannot do anything over the top. So if anyone can give me any links or directions on the easiest way to install fans to the top of the chassis I would appreciate it. Also if anyone is in need of parts for the Define R4 case like a side panel, window or non, hdd racks, fans, etc there is a seller on e bay that has them up for close to retail prices but you can make them an lower offer and usually they will take it. The cases are going for 90 but with free shipping.

I will try to find some piece wood plate.
I have two original R2 fan and one Enermax.
Enermax have bigger airflow than R2, where will you placed it?

I put the R2 fan on the bottom and hooked it up to my Motherboard

See I thought about doing that but how my psu modular cables are it blocks it pretty much and do not think I could fit it

My only concern are the CPU temps, in my older case (CM K280) barely reached the 65C and now I got the feelin that it gets to those temps a little more often

I know the stock coolers aren't that good, so I'll get a Corsair H100i in the next weeks

H100i is not worth it. I raised my temps by about 5 degrees coming from 64/65 C constant full load in my antec 1200. CM 212 evo is good enough for me.

I would invest that money in a full loop if you already have a descent cpu cooler or even get a 212 evo, they're dirt cheap! But that's just me.
