Well you could get the usual cheap LED strips used for room lights and all other stuff as well. These run on 12V maximum, reasonably cheap too. And can be connected to any voltage 0-12V so you can dim them by voltage or PWM if you have a controller.
No idea what LEDs you have but you could definitely (if they run on 12V and don't have some crazy controller built-in or something) connect them to R4 fan switch that outputs 5,7,12V so you could dim the LEDs. It has no off position. You would need a separate switch to add on/off but that is easy to do.

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.

The board is unnecessarily big. A little bigger works, but not all EATX work.
If I couldn't screw the board down, I would dremel the metal out and make one big hole for cables and the mobo.

CORE 500 seems like Node304 with core-series casing and 5,25" slot. Very good looking actually, and reasonably priced.

Yea, it looks good. And I noticed that it has more ventilation than the 304. I can't wait to see builds using these new cases.

I'm owning Fractal R4 case, I have two front 140mm fans, middle HDD cage removed, one 120mm on the bottom and one 140mm on the back.
Would like to ask, if the upper front fan will have any affect to lower temperatures of the graphics card Gigabyte G1.Gaming GTX 980 or will be on that position unnecessarily?

The define S is slowly getting built. Time to retire for the night but hopefully all the hardlines will be run by the end of the weekend

Intakes always help. Even if the top front is more for CPU. Plus you have a bottom cage which blocks the front bottom intake a LOT.
post #12679 of 16068
Do you think the top front fan helps to cool down the graphics card also in my case?
post #12680 of 16068
So I bought a R5 yesterday and compared to my XL2 and R4 the build quality is horrible.

What are your thoughts?
