I have a Define R5 and last night I did some rearranging inside the case to get better airflow going after I installed some Phanteks F140SP case fans. (I recommend by the way thumb.gif) I removed the optical drive and moved the 5-drive cage up to the top spot. I also removed the 3-drive cage from the bottom all together. My question is this: Is there really only one screw that secures the 5-drive cage to the top position? I know there is a design feature with the notched "push in and slide forward" mechanic that the drive cage hangs from but besides that is there any other means of securing the cage to the case besides the one screw up front?
I notice slight play up top because it's just hanging unsecured from the notch deal.

Alternatively, has anyone figured out a way to use the 3-drive cage in the top position? I know it doesn't have the notches on the top of the cage that would allow it to be slotted in up top but am wondering if anyone has used some ingenuity to make it work? I only have 3 HDDs and that would work out much better for me than using the larger 5-drive cage with 2 empty slots at the bottom that probably cause a little turbulence with the top intake fan.

Thanks.

Just bought a Define S (window) for a CPU loop build.

It's a great design for water cooling but I've run into a bit of trouble with the front I/O panel. The mic and headphone jacks are the wrong way around, I have to plug my mic into the headphone jack and vice versa for them to work. Also one of the USB ports doesn't work.

The LED works but it's way too bright IMO. It's a clean understated looking case yet the LED can be seen from space.

Disappointed with the front I/O but at the same time the design for water cooling is just the best I've ever seen out of the box, especially for res/pump mounting and it's size (mid tower).

I don't use the LED so you can always unplug it. You can probably get the wiring diagram for the mic and headphones and switch the pins around on the connector.

Yeah was thinking of just unplugging the pins from the mobo for the LED.
Or there might be a way of replacing the LED with something softer, maybe a white LED, I dunno. smile.gif

I would try to rewire the audio jacks but there's still the USB port not working so I'm getting a replacement part from Fractal which is nice.

I got a problem, i'm stuck with a 360mm 30mm radiator on top, more width and the radiator hit the Ram. I should go for a low-profile one.

My mic and head phone jacks are reversed also. Both usb are fine. I need to get with Fractal and get a replacement. But I'm not going to use it. I'm going to relocated the power and reset buttons get rid of the rest including the usb jacks. I will leave the hole in the top of the front panel for air intake.

Thats China production for you....

Happened to me, I pulled off the ram heat sinks and wrote a email to fractal about all the things that don't fit. Mine, LP may fit, even that looks close.
