FYI: an XSPC 420mm rad doesn't fit in a Define s. At least not in the holes made for the assembly. I wonder what radiators did Fractal use to test the fitment.

The XSPC 420 seems to catch on the motherboard i/o cutout sheet metal. I did not try to modify. I switched to a smaller rad.

I´m interested in Define S, any space problemas with a front 240mm 60mm rad + 25mm fans? I don´t know if my combo ddc+reservoir will fit there.

Do you control fans with motherboard or using a PCB PWM Splitter?

Yes it will fit fine, i'm using a RX360 (56mm thick) in the front with the ddc and res mounted to it, plenty of room left.. card is a 980 Ti.

I'm running my fans with a pwm hub.

I can fit my 80mm thick rad with 1 set of fans inside of the case, my d5 pump, my res is mounted on the precut holes, with a 980ti reference. So you should be fine.

Anybody?

What's everyone's opinion on the optimal airflow for an air cooled windowless R5?

Personally I would either mount dual 140mm in the front or triple 120mm and then a 140 on the bottom, all intake. I would leave the top closed and use a 120/140 on the rear for exhaust and have massive positive air pressure.

Should be able to leave the intake fans on low and have no cooling issues plus silent operation.

I have a Define S with R9 290. I can do it, but I think the front panel will make little to no impact on the temperatures. The setup is triple 140mm in the front and one at the rear.

False advertising from Fractal. If you claim that a case can house a 420 rad it should be universal, not for certain models only.
