That's correct. Thank you for your advice.
I use Sapphire R9 280X Dual-X which gets very hot sometimes and my CD/DVD Burner tends to get really hot too. Also when I open the front door I can feel that the heat is coming out which I guess is bad.

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.
You can fit 120 rads on rear and top, 240 can go in front.
The grills restrict air, the filters too and the intake through front does not have much space, I have removed the plastic extra internal door on mine, not sure if it helps give much more space but at least something.

Can you give me an advice how to use them, I mean which should intake and which should exhaust?

Thank you in advance!
6 side slots for fans? biggrin.gif
If you don't care about filtering or can get filters for them...

You have many options, 6 fans to use.

If you don't use front as intake and put many fans elsewhere as intake the air will escape via all holes in the case, even the front.

I would put one exhaust on rear behind the CPU. Open the PCIe slots.
Stuck 3 low on the side to blow on GPUs and put 2 as intake.

That might seem like a lot, but on my R4, 3 filtered intakes can barely keep up with one unrestricted, no grill, no filter rear exhaust.
I would suggest 1 intake fan for every in case fan that there is on CPU/GPU/...
Single fan to blow out hot air from CPU is fine, unless you have blowers, which dual-x is not there is no chance to suck hot GPU air out directly.

What do you mean hot? I have Asus 280x DC2T and 70C is normal, I would not worry up to 80C as it is all about what noise to temperature ratio you want, my fans spin something like 40% max = 1600rpm, I ran them on 100% and they ran crazy vacuum like 3000+rpm I thought they are going to rip apart what noise they made, so cooling performance there certainly is left. I don't think many fans on 280x run past 2000-2200rpm stock settings. Are the Dual-X maxing out temps and rpms?
Performance GPUs always run hot, hotter than CPUs.

I don't use CD/DVD for decades so dunno why worry about it's temps. never did. They are noisy, useless and yes do heat up since their design is simple cheap and they rotate way too fast.

I'd like to know if the r4 fits the d15 plus a 240 rad in pull in the top?

So you can't put two 120mm rads on top tubing facing open side(non mobo side) of the case?

If you tell me how thick the 240 rad I could check it out since own a D15.

Hey guys, I got my XL R2 3 months ago and I love it; there's a slight issue though, the side panel on the right(If you are behind it) has the foam and the material on top is starting to peel. What should I do?

This is measured without dampening-material. (It's in cm)
