It is indeed an x60. A x61 should fit but in my experience that depends on the placement of the motherboards 8 pin connector. I just barely got the x60 to fit with my current Asus ROG Hero board.

I had a friend not be able to install the X61 by a tiny amount due to the heat sink on his motherboard. mad.gif

It says maximum height 165mm and this cooler is 165mm with fan.

Or should i just go with NH-U12S

I think you should use the second one, im using the Tt NiC F4 with a 155mm height and i think the distance from the pipes to the window is barely 1cm or less, imo too close... :S


Btw, i managed to modify the previous cable management i had, i wasnt happy about it and by the replies of other forumers, i decided to remove the lower hdd cage and use double sided tape onboth Hdds, i used the white brackets from the case as a base so the hdds arent just sitting directly on the "metal base" of the arc mini r2 thumb.gif





I think i made enough room for a bottom fan, i think ill use the Corsair AF120 quiet, hopefully temps will improve a bit on the vcard...i guess tongue.gif

Thanks.

I have some homework to do. I'm using a p6x58d premium mobo so the 8 pin might be a problem. Maybe offset the install unless the extra hose length can let it reach the front of the define r4.

The x61 didn't end up beating the x60 in this review, but man, do these coolers ever drown out my CM 212 evo lol xeon over clocking is going to be fun with whatever solution I come up with.

Edit:

There is hope from reviews on newegg regarding the x61 installation but I will probably have to replace the stock fans..

In case you couldn't find a Neptok 280L, he meant a Cooler Master Nepton 280L, just probs had a mistype. Also, the software for the X41 is much better than the X40, the X40 wasn't responsive so I'd only go for the new one, plus the included fan is pretty nice honestly.

My bad >_< Yeah, so Cooler Master Nepton 280L. Probably Google knew it anyway!

Yeah for a second I was thinking that was some boutique brand and just wanted to clear up confusion he may be having. Seems like a great cooler, I kinda want one, but I think any bigger rads and stuff will be on a custom loop in an R5... When I save up enough in the next 5 years. tongue.gif

Decided to switch from the Arc Mini to the Arc Mini R2, and swapped out some parts.

There should be plenty of room and many different options. At least both chambers should be able to mount it in the front. Top slots can also be used depending on your other rig (HDD cages etc) but front should be sure.
