You may also want to consider spending $300 to pick up a Twin Frozr GTX 970 and update your 5yr-old GPUs. I know the purpose of this experiment is to use your old and existing tech, but those GPUs are going to be taxed if you're going to play modern games at high resolution on high settings. The GTX 970 will produce a third as much heat for better performance, resulting in less noise, lower case temps, and a lower power draw from your PSU.

The 580's are a little long in the tooth, aren't they smile.gif They are in my husbands rig, who rarely plays anything more demanding than World of Tanks/World of Warships, Diablo 3, and the occasional RPG at 1080p. He'll get my hand-me-down 780s when I do a update to Nvidia's Pascal cards next year. Or sooner if I run into a game I just have to play at max eye candy that makes my 780s cry. Throwing a 970 in his rig is very, very tempting though thumb.gif

How good a job do the moduvents do on the design S? As I'm not sureif I want to keep them on or put a 240mm rad there to go with my 360mm front rad. I would like it as quiet as possible without compensating on cooling (one 360mm, 8cm thick rad should suffice for a 2500k and 980Ti right?)

Think i'm going to go with the RX360 in the front and EX240 in the top, can't quite manage 2x360's.

I could use the RX240 in the top but i think with the crossflow rad will make the tubing routing look better.

Switched to a Define S from an R5 to do a little more with water. When Fractal makes some filtered and vented moduvents I will probably add another rad up top for a loop for graphics cards and move the res somewhere else, but for now that is how I wanted everything. I can still remover ram modules and get at everything without messing with the water stuff.

Is there someone with a hot Graphic card (r9 290, 980ti, 780ti) and Define S who can make a stress test with and without front panel? I want to know the diference.

Everyone that is interested, go to this link and send Fractal a product recommendation to make filtered and vented moduvent covers for the R5 and S. If they get enough interest, they will make them. Thanks.

Get Demciflex biggrin.gif
If they are gonna create just another 700 micron filters, they are almost as good as removed.
I'm gonna get that stainless steel mesh 100 micron 61% open area and fix my R4 filters.
