Not really planning on overclocking that much (2600k @ 4.4GHz or so) but I want it as silent as possible which isn't really possible with one fan.
How are you going yo mount 240 or 280mm rad in Define mini?

140 Nepton would go, but fans are loud as horny donkey. Try 120rad, like Antec h2o 620 for example and fit it with two high quality fans.

Can anyone else not find the Arc mini in stock anywhere? Literally out of stock everywhere.

Also the Arc mini page leads to the midi on newegg?headscratch.gif

Could he not get the 140 Nepton and get good fans?

Hm OK what about 240 rads? There's 2x 120mm fan slots in the top so.

Well sure, but Nepton has rather high price tag. Of course, fans are pwm so they could do in the beginning.

Also, FD website stated there is only single slot on top. Did I miss something?

Crap, you're right. 1x 120mm in the top only. Hm OK so I need the best 120mm (or 140mm, can surely make it fit somehow without major mods), will have a look.

Thanks

"A total of 6 fan slots (2x120mm in front, 1x 120/140mm in top, 1x120mm in back, 1x 120/140mm in side panel, 1x 120mm in bottom)" So you could use 140 too, but there might be some clearance issues. 240 could fit in front, but not without modding.

So, I tell you this: 120 rad will fit for sure either in front, back or top. 140 could fit on top, but there might be clearance issues. I'd advice for 120mm with pushpull mounted in the back or front. Push/pull gives good airflow and it keeps the static pressure up trough the rad.

Thanks. I ended up ordering the Corsair H90... let's see how it goes.

I tried a few days back (didnt have enough time) and it seemed that hoses are too short.

I can cofirm that h100i is installable front of the Define R5. Easiest is to mount cpu block on the cpu first and then the radiator, especially when you have higher ram like Corsair Vengeance etc.
Noise level went a lot down, because you can install the upper plates.
