Define S / R5 Question.
What´s the maximum radiator size in both of them ?
Can you mount a slim 420 in the top AND a 360 in the front? Or is 360+360 the maximum ?

People have got two 360s to fit but not all 360s will work and it depends on your loop setup. Some have used the grill holes to also mount a 360 further back as to give more room for the front. As far as a 420 and 360 I doubt.

Is it reasonable to replace Fractal GP14 with Be Quiet Pure Wings 2 fans? Spec are about the same, or can you reccoment something better with good price to noise/airflow ratio?

I actually had Silent Wings 2 fans 140mm in my Define S....I had (3) up front and (1) in the rear. I have since watercooled my GPU so I had to rearrange all my fans.

I ended up returned the Silent Wings and got the Fractal HF-14s. The Silent Wings are very quiet, even at 100%, but the amount of air they move sort of corresponds to that...meaning...they don't seem to move that much air haha. The HF-14s are of course louder at 100%, but they literally move twice as much air. Even at 100% they are pretty quiet, but I never run my case fans at 100% anyways.

I really felt like the HF-14s move a lot more air at 50% speed than even the Silent Wings 2 at 100% speed.

A 360 rad in the front (any thickness) and a 240 rad up top is your best bet for the S. For the R5 it is probably the other way around.

I bought a Define S in August and I'm really satisfied with it. Had decided to build my first water cooled rig and the Define S felt like a decent "novice builder" case.
Will replace the intake fans with somwthing more powerful, need more fresh air over the radiators. Current setup is a top 360 rad and a bottom 120 rad. Going to get a 140 rad to mount at the exhaust fan, need a little more cooling to be completely happy with my OC'ed temps.

Specs:
- Asus X99-A
- Intel i7 5820K @ 4.4GHz 1.245V
- Gigabyte GTX 980ti Gaming G1 @ 1450/1900
- 16gb HyperX DDR4 @ 2666MHz CL14 1.35V
- Corsair AX860
- Fractal Define S
- Acer Predator XB270HU
- Schiit modi + magni | Philips Fidelio x2

I don't fancy the dual tank - setup. I tried to use the EK DCP 2.2 without the EK-res, but I managed to make a crack in the outlet nozzle of the pump. This makes the pump leaky when used alone, but it's fine when connected to the EK-res. I'm planning on buying an Aquacomputer D5 to mount on the Aqualis XT PRO 450-reservoir, and get rid of the whole DCP 2.2 pump/tank.


What do you guys think?

I would have put that 360 up front. That is too much rad and fan up top.

Why is that?

Why do you think that? Someone recommended me to have the rad up top to blow hot air out instead of blowing hot air in to the case? I could use top as intake, but that would make alot of dust issues :/

Don't matter once the water reaches its delta. The way you have your case set up is fine and it looks good.

This is a good thread to join for water cooling. Hope it helps
