The SC ACX card you have has the fins on the heatsink facing towards the side of the case. As the GPU fans draw air in they push it through the fins and then the fins guide the air upwards/downwards towards the side panel/motherboard. Having an exhaust fan on the side panel would pull that heated air straight out of the case. Instead an intake fan which would push against the airflow of the GPU cooler.
In essence, the lower front fan would push air towards the air cooled card, goes through the card and out the side vent.




I'd at least try both configurations and see which of them helps the most.

Awesome 1+ to both!

Will stick the orginal case fan for an exhaust, guess it will get the job done.

Thanks guys! Appreciate it! biggrin.gif

Hey all, I was wondering if I can get help with case air flow with my Define R5?

Sure. What do you need to know?

Thanks. I'm just trying to make sure I've got positive pressure. I currently have 2 140mm noctua industrialppc fans at running at 60% speed as an intake and 1 H75 with a 120mm Noctua industrialppc in push in the back as 1 exhaust and another 140mm noctua industrialppc on the side panel as an exhaust. Does this set up sound like positive pressure? Also When I have all 3 140mm fans as an intake, my case makes the sound of turbulent wind so I'm not sure what the issue is.

You're neutral if not slightly positive. The turbulence you heard with grew intakes was air leaking through the cracks in your case due to your excess of positive pressure. Sounds like you've got a decent balance now though.

Awesome. also I'll be changing my cooling setup in a few days. I'm going to have an EK Predator in the top of the case exhausting air and all the 140 mm fans intake air does this sound like it could get rid of the turbulence?

There's only one way to find out. wink.gif

FWIW, I have four 140mm fans as intake (two front and two bottom) with a 240mm rad as exhaust on top and a 140mm fan blowing out the back, and my airflow is great without any turbulence.

Either something's wrong with my Define S or EVGA GTX 970 SSC 2.0+ isn't supposed to fit in it. I used the standoffs and screws that came with the case, my mobo is Asus Z87 Deluxe and for the life of me I can't get the GPU to work inside the case. It does work fine in my S340, or when I build the setup on the table (using it like that to write this message). It seems it doesn't reach all the way to the bottom of the PCI-e slot, no matter how hard you try. That is also the reason why the VGA led lights up red and there is no signal. Never had an issue like this before... I'd understand if the case was damaged or the parts would be somehow modified out of the standard... Out of like 15 boots and 5 times of reinstalling the GPU, I got it to work once to watch some netflix, but the next day the GPU-MOBO connection was gone again and the led was on. mad.gif

Solved, if GPU and MOBO are both screwed in properly, the HDMI will touch the metal on the back panel and cause short circuit...

Defective model maybe. Had no such issues with my case and card combo... and yeah all screwed in properly.

I am debating between the Define S and the R5 for the build below. I will only have a SSD and a SSHD in the PC with no optical drive. Doing Air cooling with the ninja 4 (ignore the noctua, partpicker doesnt have the ninja in db). My main concern is drive noise in the Define S and overall noise. Can anyone comment on their experience between the two regarding noise?

PS I have read many reviews on the two cases.. just looking for real world thoughts and comments smile.gif thanks!!!
