Probably some of it... but if you put the top exhaust fan in, say, the forward top position, it'll have some time to mix. But regardless, your best option by far is to find a way to get that radiator in the roof and suck fresh air in the front (or vice-versa).

Yeah. I agree there. I guess in reading your post it sounded like you were directing him to use the furthest back moduvent but that could just be me reading that into it.

The radiator is 80mm thick, in push pull, with one set of fans on the front of the case under the plastic front panel, so it can only go in the front. I don't want the top open as there will be more noise and it allows dust to settle into the rig from the top. Wanting a powerful exhaust fan to extract the hot air from the radiator as at the moment the hot air is just sitting in the case. If the top was filtered I would use my other 240mm rad as an exhaust in the roof.

Well here's the thing. When you have positive pressure, which you do, the air WILL leave the case. Some will go through the rear grills, some will sneak out through the cracks between the modu-vent covers, etc... but it will go out. If you just want to help it leave a little faster and move yourself closer to neutral pressure, a stronger exhaust fan will be perfect. But don't expect it to lower your temperatures is all I'm saying. Your only incoming air will still be warmed by that radiator, and adding a stronger exhaust fan won't do anything to change that.

Anyone have a picture of a Define S or R5 with 2 360 rads in it?

OR

Have a Define S or R5 with a 360 on top with 240 in front and 120 mounted somewhere?

Any reason for the 120 rad?, not really going to make much of a difference.

I did have a 320 in the top and 240 in the front though when i was using the R5 as in system pic.

Yeah, it may not have much affect on overall temperature at all but it may help getting a bit more air flow over the motherboard and stop the case getting too warm. Not hoping for big temperature drops from it, just getting the hot air out asap haha thumb.gif

Just became addicted to watercooling as of late.

So I just bought Define S case...have to say it's perfect (internal space, cooling option etc..) but my concern are HDD temps.
Spec:
i5 2500k@ 4600-> cooled by Kelvin S36
gigabyte gtx 970
4 HDD (1TB Samsung, 1TB WD green, 3TB WD green, Samsung Evo 850)

cooling set-up:
end and bottom 14cm fan as intake (to cool VRM around PC), Kelvin in front with fans as outtake (fans are inside case pushing air from case out). Next week I want to add GPU to kelvin loop.

But with this set-up, while playing Fifa my HDD temps were 46,46, 47C

Can it be that hot air from case is getting to HDDs?
If yes, probably once I will cool GPU with water there will be not that much hot air inside as it's now due lower GPU temps..
But I wouldn't expect to go temps under 43C
