So, so clean, yet I need to ask: where is your storage? I imagine the SSD is behind the motherboard but do you have no HDD?

If anyone knows, it'd be a great help thumb.gif
Just for anyone wondering about this in the future - yes, it does indeed fit. Even if the manufacturer's website says Fractal's dimenions are 170mm and TS140 is 170mm there is no problem. It fits easily and you can leave the sound dampener in place.

I have a SSD and HDD crammed behind the motherboard tray. It was a tight fit, but I managed to squeeze them in, along side a jungle of cables smile.gif

Anyone with a fractal r2 midi know if the case will mount a swiftech 240x in the top while still keeping the drivebays? Also does a 280 rad fit comfortably in the front of the case?

Hmh, guys (and girls if there are any). You know there are all kind of weirdos, like contay when he's drunk. But, would it be possible with back panel modding to make dual mobo build inside Node 804? Maybe with mITX boards. And if someone ask "Why", there is no rational reason.

Okay, I am not drunk, just had this idea while ago.

Edit: okay I did some research with simple cad models. It would be possible with mITX-boards and atx-psus. Sfx-psu would help but it isn't necessary.

So I recently picked up the mini R2 and had a blast with the build so far, it's not 100% final but good enough for now biggrin.gif

Also heres a picture of my little gaming buddy, We all need one at times we get frustrated!

Hey guys,

I got 1 question regarding the cooling of a Fractal Design Define R4. Before you stop reading as cooling questions have been answered a lot regarding this case please note that's someting new, I guess.

First things first: the initial build

Fractal Design Define R4 Black Pearl
Asus Maximus VII Hero [1 x CPU Fan connector(4 -pin) 1 x CPU OPT Fan connector(4 -pin) 4 x Chassis Fan connectors(4 -pin)]
i7-4790K @ Noctua NH-D15
3 HDD

So far I didn't purchase any parts meaning I'm mostly guessing at this point. The big question is: will a NF-A15 PWM fit onto my side panel and does it make sense to do that?

My initial cooling setup would then be the NF-A15 PWM on the side panel and two stock 140mm coolers on 1*front intake and 1*rear exhaust. The A15 would be connected to the CPU opt Fan connector whereas the ND-D15 comes along with a y-splitter and should be run sufficiently by a single CPU Fan connector. The middle HDD cage will be removed. CPU and GPU will be overclocked.

I would like to start my build with 3 fans initially. Winter is coming. I'm planning to purchase a 2nd MSI GTX 970 around next summer along with two NF-A14 FLX (1*top back exhaust and 1 additional front intake) to complete this build.

You might ask why the heck do I want to put a NF-A15 one the side panel instead of another NF-A14 FLX. Two answers: 1) the A15 is available right now whereas the A14 currently is not. I could buy a NF-P14 instead but from what I've read it's outdated and loud. Most other common 140mm fans aren't available too. Options are limited. Secondly the A15 is probably one of the strongest 140mm fans out there and quiet at the same time. The A15 pointing directly at the SLI setup should probably grant the best cooling performance and would sync nicely with the CPU cooler fan speed.


If you're still reading you may also comment on my overall cooling setup/idea. The bottom fan slot won't be accessible as my planned power supply is 200mm deep and I plan to rotate the lower HDD cage anyway. I'm also unsure to remove the 5.25" bay. Does it really improve airflow? I won't use any 5.25" drives.

Feel free to comment on any flaws. Any input is highly appreciated.


Thanks guys, Duscha
