What i want to know that would the gigabyte one fit in any possible way? Like if we remove front fans or via any other means?

Been searching for a build with 980ti in this case and havent found one as yet. Sorry if this has already been asked before. Thanks
Pretty much any two-fan GPU should work. I don't know a whole lot about the Gaming g1, but IIRC it's on a custom PCB so even replacing the cooler isn't likely to make a difference.

If you don't have a second intake fan then you can fit up to 12.59" GPU's. But do mind there's also the MSI 980Ti Gaming which is only 10.6" long.

~12.6"


The depth of the case is less than 15.9" so unless you are going to cut a hole in the front that is a no.

Anyone here willing to sell me their 3 moduvent covers in the name of science? I am going to try to vent them slightly with a laser cutter, but want to have an extra set in case something goes wrong.

It doesn't seem like they are sold separately, although I may have to email Fractal Design and ask.

Just a small request please.

If anyone happens to own an arc mini (preferably an r2 but don't think it matters too much) and buys an EK predator 240 can you please let me know if and how it fits.

By all the measurements it SHOULD fit but I've heard that it doesn't. If an h240x fits the predator should fit easily.

I'm hoping it's only a matter of the fan screws not lining up right. If this is the case then I can just use some of the fan vents to screw it in.

So my define s might come next week, can't wait biggrin.gif
post #13427 of 16136
My define s with window arrived today and i tried for fun if the side panel would fit on my r4 and it does! I can however not scew down the thumbscrews, but still fits like a glove.
post #13428 of 16136
Can anyone help me not to hate my new Define S? frown.gif

I'm coming from a Midgard and besides the great airflow and space I'm not really impressed with the new case.

My HDDs are getting really hot, going above 40°C until nearly 50°C.
They were quiet in my old case, but in my Define S they are vibrating and are so much louder.
SSDs going up to 45°C behind the motherboard tray.

It's cold right now here, 20°C ambient temperature and I don't want to know temperatures in sommer.

The temperature of my GPU is nice, it's cooler, but my CPU is going from 60°C to nearly 68-70°C under full load.
When I remove the top vents, temps are getting better, but there is no top dust filter.

The noise level didn't change. Both, Midgard (Noisblocker fans) and Define S (stock fans) are very quiet.

I guess it's not the case for me and I think this soundproof material on the side and top panels are useless.

Please help me not to refund this case. How can I solve my problems?

Take the HDDs out of the case and put them in an external storage and see if that fixes all your problems. Re-check or get better thermal paste for your CPU.

Hey all, Just got myself a Define R5 and I was wondering if anyone here has a EKWB Predator 240 in the same case. I'm thinking about getting one and wanted to know how it fits.
