*GASP!* How could you turn down the beautiful Apogee XL??

Once one has seen the Supremacy Evo, it really changes one's opinion of other CPU blocks' aesthetics. For the worse. It's hard to find a block that stacks up to EK's in terms of looks.

I don't like any blocks from EK or Swiftech, looks wise, gpu or cpu. For me it's Heatkiller all the way.




And Heatkiller build quality is just top shelf. Might not perform better than EK or Swiftech but for physical product quality, just holding it in your hand, other manufacturers just cannot compare. Watercool is simply king.

Unfortunately the camera on my phone sucks. I really wanted to take pictures because my new Define R4 is so much better than the NZXT Tempest it replaced. My temperatures are slightly higher, but I have fewer fans on this case and the door impedes airflow. Temperatures increased about 1C across all cores under load so it really isn't that big of a deal. Maybe I'll dig up my last phone and try to snap a few pictures with that.

Ordered my windowed panel for the White R5 at last, came to £24 delivered if anyone is interested in the same.

I started my modding today since I don't have work before Wednesday rolleyes.gif

I got told that a 240/280 rad what the biggest rad I could fit a long time ago...
Whether they were wrong, or the case has grown over time I dont know for sure...

hey guys quick question was hoping someone could answer for me i am planing on getting the fractal design R5 and was wondering if a top mounted swiftech H220-X would fit in this case without removing drive bays, really love the look of this case... thnx for any help
post #12439 of 16288
I would assume a 240mm radiator would fit just fine without have to remove any bays.

yes it will.

The negatives with using a top mounted rad is that fractal doesnt offer a filter to cover the moduvent area.
