No doubt it works. But I would have gone with 240 rad inside the case :O

Completed case swap with new Define R5.
Excellent cooling and significantly reduced noise from front and sides. With the two EVGA GTX 980's folding at maximum, I don't think many cases will reduce the fan noise from the rear of the case being reflected off the wall. I also ended up swapping out the old Antec Tru Blue 750 power supply which served me well for many years with a more efficient Seasonic 860 Platinum.

Another bottom to top view of the Define R5 case internals also showing the drive cages. I ended up spacing the HD's to every other slot in an attempt to improve airflow.
Define R5 case looking from front to back. Two EVGA GTX 980's, Seasonic 860 watt 80plus Platinum power supply, Gigabyte P67A-UD4-B3 motherboard, and Noctua fans installed. I used the two Fractal Design fans on the front intake.

Very nice man :-) I am getting the same R5 window black for Christmas. Also getting the Samsung XP941 M.2 SSD drive. So no more Sata cables or power cables in my system :-)

Nice setup man. Looks very nice. I still have cables on the inside of the case, where the power supply is. For the gpu my cables come with 8 pin 6pin split off. Can you run just one cable or do you need two separate cables? I have two separate ones plugged into the gpu at the moment.

Hey guys. With the Define R3, if I want to install a bottom case fan that blows up onto my GPU, can you still have the dust filter thing that they put there, or does that thing need to be removed? I tried placing my 120mm fan on top of there, but it didn't screw in right.

Question, I know the r5 only supports upto regular ATX, but would you be able to fit the Asus Rampage V Extreme motherboard in there? Also would the Corsair H110 fit inside as well?

With the GTX 980's and the Seasonic 860, I am only running one cable to each graphics card. For a GPU requiring one or more 8 pin cables, I would run two seperate cables just to reduce the voltage drop from the extra current draw.
Total system wattage when folding project 10472 FahCore 0x18 with both cards and no CPU folding, is 408 watts input.

I have the Gigabyte P67A-UD4-B3 motherboard in my R5 case, and the ASUS motherboard is 1.1" longer. I took some measurements and the ASUS would end up covering about 2/5ths of the grommets and touch or come very close to touching the metal of the recessed tray where it ramps up in front. With some shimming washers on the front MB standoffs it might be possible, but problematic. Should not be a problem to fit the Corsair H110 though with lots of options.
