I see, but is the pump/res combo mounted as low as possible or is the front sitting slightly lower?

The pump/res can be mounted lower on the case reservoir strips, but it won't be lower than the bottom of the front radiator. If I moved the 360 to the top and the 240 to the front, and mounted the 240 to the top 2 fan mounts, I could get the pump/res to be the lowest point, but that would probably require a slimmer radiator than what I have.

Is the top a 45 or 60mm 240 rad?

45mm.

So apparently Rampage IV does not fit in Define S... I saw this image of it fitting in an R5, but in actuality it just sort of floats there.

Would it be feasible to mod the case by cutting that grooved metal that Fractal for some reason decided to put into their chassis where the holes for cable management are? I really don't want to have to send this back and find another feasible case for my loop as I already bought all the parts and it wasn't that expensive.

I suppose the PCB is in contact with the metal chassis?

I don't see the problem there. The Rampage is an Extended ATX motherboard while the fractal case is only compatible w/ ATX, Micro ATX, Mini ITX. I would assume that if you wanted to fit something not listed as compatible, a bit of modifications would need to be done.

Yes I'm aware of this fact. However someone claimed their Rampage IV fit in the R5 but in actuality, the mobo gets lifted off and can't be screwed down while also making contact with the metal.

Yes. Anyways, I just decided to throw my 2600k build in the Define S and mod the Enthoo Pro I have to fit all the stuff I was going to put in the Define S for my 3930k build.

Hi there... im kinda new to this forum but i love fractal design cases smile.gif (exuse some english mistakes, its not my native language smile.gif ) I have 2 at home, define mini and define R4 and with R4 i need a little help... Im planning to make it unique a bit by putting led strips on both sides behind the intake bars. And here is the "problem" i already order the led strips and its connecting to the molex conector from power suply - no problem yet - but the pc is often running at night and im a bit scared how much light the led strips will do so i woudl like to ask if its some possibility to made from fan controler on the front side (i already take out the cables) some kind of switch on/off (dor example 12V ON - 5V OFF) and connect it to the led strips. Is it even possible? Or i want something unreal? biggrin.gif

Ill be pleased for every advice..
