You get better temperatures if all your rads are intake.


I'm pulling intake from the front on my H110 and my GPU is air cooled. My CPU stays nice and cool, especially if I keep the front door open, and I'm over 1.5vcore. The GPU gets a bit hot but only on burn tests.

I may have to turn the fans around tonight and see how that affects temps.

what about putting a 140/120mm fan on the bottom of the case in front of the psu blowing fresh air up towards the gpu?

You may run into problems then. I don't even have a rad in the top of my case so maybe wait around for someone who at least has that knowledge.

I have an 80mm down there now. It was a spare I had. Screw holes happen to line up well with mesh. I can't use a larger fan because I moved the lower cage over to fit the h110 up front.

My first build!
Tips/Suggestions would be much appreciated, thanks





Custom WHITE PCI-E/24Pin/CPU/SATA sleeved cords and a backplate for my EVGA GTX 960 SSC will be arriving shortly.

FX 6300 - 4.4Ghz
GA78LMT-USB3 (Rev 6)
Corsair H100i Extreme Performance
Crucial Ballistix Sport - 8Gb (1608mhz)
EVGA GTX 960 SSC
Samsung EVO 850 - 120GB
EVGA 600B PSU
Fractal Design Define R5

Most likely will use this build until the end of this year and build another higher-end system for 2016.

I don't know if anyone has ever posted this before, but here's proof that Fractal Design cases are not of very good quality. (Threaded GLUED DOWN screw hole on the upper drive cage. FD Arc Ver 1). Now it's impossible to take the screw out because the glue that was holding the nut in place cracked.

just my 2 cents. Move h100i radiator to front intake and move 2 front fan to btm intake will enable a more "quiet" rig. This way you can close all the top the ventilation

If this wasn't a fluke in Chinese manufacturing then this has been fixed long time ago.

What quality people expect I don't know, it's all made in China or other South East Asia country where all the jobs we used to have are gone to thanks to our governments not protecting our markets.

To those of you who are Fractal Define S owners...

.....Is it possible to stack two SSDs on top of each other in the SSD mounts?
And still be able to close the side panel?

I really like the Define S, but Im goingt o be using all the 3.5 drive trays and will need to fit an extra 2.5in drives in besides the two on the back of the motherboard tray....

Is anyone with an ARC MIDI R2 able to measure the distances between the feet of the case? Front to back, and side to side. I need something to raise the case up off my basement floor in case of minor flooding. I'm looking at this http://amzn.com/B0006HVM5E and I'd like to be able to use the 16" version. It looks like the feet of the case could be a perfect fit for the 16" version but I don't have access to my case to take a measurement at the moment.
