post #12281 of 16056
Hello everyone! I want to buy this case,althought it was released 3 years ago,but I think there's nothing better in quiet solution for full towers in 150$ range. (If you disagree,please post your ideas/solutions)

So,I'm interested in your short reviews guys who have this case. I'm not going into water cooling,just need something really quiet and full tower.

Is it really that silent? Did anything changed through you bought it? (Sound changed,something broke,etc...)

Thanks in advance !!!

P.S Of course I wanted to buy something new from 2015,but as I mentioned before there is no better solution in this price range......

I've run two Fractal 140mm fans off each header. Nothing caught fire. smile.gif

Hi, all. New member here...

I really like the Fractal Design cases for a new build, but I have a question that yuou guys mey be ale to answer.

I am building around a Msi X99S Gaming 9 ACK biard, which is EATX.

Specifically, I like the Define R5, and although it is an ATX case, a friend has used it to build with an Asus Rampage Extreme V, which is slightly bigger than the Msi I like.

Has anyone used a R5 with that Msi board? Will the R5 fit 'bigger than ATX' mobos? Any way to know exactly the maximum size of mobo that will fit in the R5?

(The alternative is an XL R2, but it's waaay too big for my needs, and not sure if as silent as the R5.)

Thanks in advance to all! smile.gif

Hello guys I have a fractal design arc xl, is compatible with a radiator Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 240mm or XSPC RX240 Dual Fan Radiator V3 + fans push/pull? there is a risk of conflict exists with other components such as the motherboard or the system memory? I have to install the radiator on the top of the case and use RAM Module with high profile

thumb.gif Thank you

assuming you're talking about putting that radiator on the top, not the front. as long as you use the offset mounting points for the 240, you should have a lot of clearance between the radiator and the motherboard.

you can also mount a thick 240 + push/pull in the front of the case if you move the drive cage to the furthest back mounting point.

I think plasti-dip would come off of the tray rails from sliding it in.
Plasti-dip is too thick for the expansion slot covers.

Good thinking, but now I'm having trouble even finding white ones!

Guys, help me please! I own Arc Midi r2 and need some advice on how to mount front radiator in push config.
I had it tied to the chasis (not kidding) for the last 6 months and I now need to screw it tight.
The problem is front screw holes are slightly too small and XSPC rad screws dont fit inside - I would need 2-3mm longer screws.
From XSPC site (RX240): Supplied 30mm and 6mm 6-32 UNC screws. Both are too short to install the radiator in front.
What are my options?

@Edit:
The screws: http://images.xs-pc.com/product_images/large/17/33644_01.jpg
The heads are too big for the holes in case. And i cannot find any other 6/32 30mm head type :/
Any chances I might use non 6/32 screws with those rads?

What holes in the case are actually too small? HDD screws have same thread as rad screws. I used HDD screws with my rad when I had one. I just used lathe to cut the head little smaller but you shouldn't worry about that. So are you mounting rad on the top?
