Nice and clean build Skriptt thumb.gif The only thing you need to get rid off imho is the plastic hdd case slide.
You can screw that out with this type of screwdriver

How do I go about mounting my HDD's to the 5.25 trays? I want to get rid of my cages, they look very ugly.

Buy an adapter.
Something like this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Silverstone-SST-SDP10B-Converter-5-25-plus/dp/B00CK0HU4W
I'm using one myself as you can see on the picture.

But u can buy it only in Slovakia..
post #11575 of 16059
is it possible to have the d15 plus a 240 rad in pull in the top?
post #11576 of 16059
Hey everyone! Just a quick question. I currenly have Define R2 (and Node304) but I am planning hardware update for Define rig later this year. Does R4 have better airflow than R2? I have potential buyer for R2 so I could upgrade the case as well, if it would give any significant advantages.

As both rigs have Gigabytes GTX760, I'll upgrade Nodes gpu and give SLI for Define. Same time I most likely upgrade my cpu from i5 to Xeon 1231v3.

So. Define case most likely can handle SLI setups heat with good cooling setup, but would R4 have any advantages over R2?
post #11577 of 16059
It's still a metal box with holes for fans, does R4 have more fan positions than R2?
The airflow is restricted since it's a silent case, the air passes through filters and tight spaces.
post #11578 of 16059
Well, I know it is silent but IMO air flows rather well in R2. And with removable HDD cages, I guess it would be even better in R4.

But. As SLI gets graphic cards close to each other, I've been thinking about AiO waterloops and Kraken G10 for GPUs and AiO loop for cpu. This Obvioysly needs three radiators.

So, is it possible to fit 2x120mm rads in top and one 240mm rad in front WITHOUT modding the case? I am quite sure I have see one such build before but I couldn't find it and couldn't verify if there was case modding or not. This is about R4.

Hello guys,

I have Define XL R2 with custom made window. So I have 6 slots for 140 mm fans.
The case comes with 3x R2 140mm fans and I have bought 3 more.
Can you give me an advice how to use them, I mean which should intake and which should exhaust?

Thank you in advance!
post #11580 of 16059
If I understand correctly, you have 1 Rear, 2 Top, 2 Front and 1 Bottom. Generally it is recommended rear and top as exhaust. Both front and bottom as Intake. You might want (YOU MUST HAVE) filter for bottom intake. If someone has better ideas, please share. smile.gif
