Thanks for the info, still deciding whether should go for the 240x or not.
post #12742 of 16068
^not much difference between the 2 in terms of performance

although I would imagine that the H240-X will be a better choose should you choose to expand the loop

Your cooling simply lacks fresh cold air, both the front rad due to filters and other restrictions and the top rad that only gets already hot air.

With R4/S the bottom might need to be cut for the fan in an offset position. R5 is better in terms of fans and filters. S is an R4/5 clone.
No cages so you should be able to fit a bottom fan even if it's only a 120.

I wouldn't bother switching pull to push and taking it apart :/

But definitely put as many fans as intake as possible, bottom, rear, front, any place possible.
Leave only top rad as exhaust. Cut all grills and restrictions out.

Or, don't use filters, grills, front panel, side panel, etc. anything that restricts air tongue.gif


So i am doing some modding right now that should help w/ intake. Already flipped the rear fan as an intake and it dropped temps across the board 2C at load with filters and front panel on. I was able to find a spare 120mm that does fit in the top. Just need to pick up a non LED version and i am good.

Also, the PSU is a 1200 P2. I wanted it to stay in eco mode as much as possible.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
And some WIP

Masked everything up and did a 30mm dept cut inside



Picked up some Steel Sheet



Whoops, cut it too short. I guess i should use a measuring tape next time.



Second one already cut and primed w/ self etching primer. Also wet sanded and has been painted black as well



Now to let the paint cure for 24 hours before i can Epoxy it onto the front cover. For now my computer will sit semi naked

I use a Fractal Design Define R4 in white for my main rig and love it!

They have the best designs methinks for their cases.
post #12745 of 16068
Finally done with my rig.

My only quirm is the AsRock Z97E ITX. Was a mITX user but when I found the Fractal Design Define S, I knew I found the case. No doubt Phanteks is also another option, but I personally prefer the large square windows much like the Corsair 750Ds, 800Ds and 900Ds.

No reason to change the motherboard and CPU combo since Skylake is just around the corner.

Will probably be doing some painting or ordering some vinyl stickers but the pastel green is a tad hard to find and match.













Just a personal observation for anyone that wants to do hardline tubing:

Try to avoid using rotary fittings and try as much as possible to rely on bending the tubing. Tubing of incorrect length/angle places enormous strain on the rotary fittings and often causes them to leak.

Loving the case so far! I think will be perfect for my first attempt at water cooling with a custom loop. eek.gif

Been a while, but looking to water cool this little white beast again and potentially add a little fury to this thing, the i5-760 at 3.3 GHz seems to be holding it's own and it's my 7950 that's holding me back.

post #12750 of 16068
Quick question. I have mounted a radiator on bottom of my R5 and would like to get some more clearance for the air to escape - i.e. I need taller case feet. Does anybody have any recommendation?

Thanks!
