About ram clearance: Heatsink is high enough, so it can hover above Ram (at least on those) and fan can be placed so it will have ~1mm clearance. Reason I inverted macho is that this way there is more room between exhaust fan and pulling fan.
Oh now I see the ghetto clips biggrin.gif

You know, the advantage of Macho is that it's one sided and the longer over hang is supposed to go toward the rear where the exhaust fan will suck the air better from the fan without having the need so much to use an actual extra pull fan, though mainly it gives better clearance for RAM.
I have Macho. And if you look at the "bent bits" on the fins, they form a V when looking from top and as far as I found before it is also because the fan flow is not straight with many many many fans but most blow in a V. Also the pipes are stepped more apart at the exhaust side.
I guess there is not much of a difference in temperatures really, you can check, I didn't bother with it. Maybe it's in some review compared I think I saw one where they tested all the possible configurations and the normal one was best.

That is exactly like I had Macho before. Real clips arrived today (no more rubberbands!), as did 4790k and the new system is running happily. Then again, macho is still inverted, with two fans WITH CLEARANCE TO RAM. Gaming temps are around 45*C with core running 4.4GHz, only two case fans currently and gigabyte 760 SLI pushing heat in. More fans arrive hopefully tomorrow. I'll post few pics when they are installed : )

Hey guys, I just received a define R4, and noticed both side doors were bent at the back by the bottom screws. Is this normal?

Have I posted here yet? tongue.gif




Still got a lot of plans for my build, such as acrylic tubing and custom cables, but time and money has been holding me back.

Looks damaged indeed.

Yours, white R4 owner.

I'm owning Define R4 and Sapphire Tri-X 290 OC.
GPU is not overclocked more than stock OC.
I have 140mm fans: two on front, one on bottom and one on back as an outtake.
During playing Watch Dogs I have temps: 80 degrees on GPU and 84 degrees on VRM1.
Aren't these temps much too high?
