im having a bit of trouble with temps in this case. i have a single rad for the cpu at the back, exhausting. but it's running like 75C air through it from the gpu. i tried reversing the flow through the case but didn't have much luck with that either...

What case and what GPU. If the GPU is on air you will always have high temps in the case the 70c to 80C from the GPU needs to go somewhere.

Specs, config, numbers, expectations?
120-140mm CLC for CPU is, lets say it this way: an air cooler can do better than that.

Hi. Welcome me smile.gif

Last weekend I built my sig rig with the Refine R5. I love the case so far. I'll post a link to the build writeup because I had some challenges with the CPU cooler and memory but the flexibility of the case was fantastic.

I have alot of tuning still to do but I thought I would stop in and say hi.

Thanks for the reply, happyrichie! Really wanted a silence-focused build, so I didn't want to mess with the top, and ended up mounting the radiator to the front smile.gif

Still to sort cables, change tubing to Blue and install Bitpower fittings.

I have exact set up as you! Even for the drain port. Great work:thumb:

For any R5 or Define S owners, how do you feel about the GP-14 fans?

I recently picked up a Define S along with two additional GP-14 fans for the intake slots. For the intakes I feel that these fans do a decent job in terms of airflow and noise however the fan being used for exhaust wasn't really pushing anything out of the case for whatever reason, even at full rpm. When I placed my hand behind the exhaust I could barely feel any air coming out and the internal temps rising. I swapped it out for a Corsair 140mm fan I had lying around and my case temp dropped significantly and i could feel a lot of air exiting the case.

Was the fan spinning? lol
Wasn't it put the wrong direction? XD

I use cheap Gelid fans along with the stock FDs. One cheap Gelid as exhaust the other 3 fans as intakes and I have no problem to feel air blowing out from the exhaust.
Maybe you have negative pressure in your case and the GP-14 is weaker than the other fan you tried that was finally able to fight your negative pressure.

Personally I don't see the point of spending enormous $ on fans, at equal size and rpm they are all almost equal in terms of how much air they push through.

I suppose you are using the grills which restrict airflow? Maybe the GP-14 struggles more to overcome the exhaust restriction from the grill.
I don't have any grills on my case.

I'm still impressed daily with my Define S. Makes my old H440 look like a third world designed case. The H440 was like the Dark Age. And the Define S is like the Enlightenment. The only thing wrong is made in China. I would pay $50 more if it had been made in it's country of design. Still need to change out the power led and get real glass in the window. The machine is not setup to be quite. When the cpu and gpu are at full chat it gets loud and stays very cool with it's 5930K @ 4.7ghz and the 980 Classy @ 1627/8000. Cutting the top panels to fit my rad did help with noise at low load and daily use scenarios. I also opened up the bottom of the front panel for more air flow.

Best mid-tower water cooling case out there!
