I'm looking to find out if I need to use a slim fan in the traditional motherboard IO exhaust position if I mount the radiator that way.

I have testfitted a 360 xt45 in an Arc MINI R2 with the ports near the exhaust fans. Tight but it fits. Maybe just because my ODD Mounting bracket is jaust about 4cm / 1,5" long which is really sufficient to mount an Aquaero or a bayres

I'm looking to upgrade my fractal R3 to a design s when I install my custom water loop in the next month or so

only problem is, I have 2x XSPC EX280 rads which are 35mm thick. Official stats from fractal limit top rad size to 55mm inc fan, which means id be over by 5mm when using standard 25mm fans.

Has anyone successfully installed a 35mm rad in the top of a design s?

Don't worry, I'm not going to blame you if things dont work out, I'd really appreciate anyone's thoughts on the matter though.

EDIT - when using a 140.x rad

I think it looks really good man. My only beef is that orange on the PSU. That would drive me nuts. Maybe paint it over or get a skin to match the rest of the build.

Yeap the lettering on the AX models is red. And it would match up your system very nicely. Great build though man don't let that little beef make you think I think otherwise.
FYI just curious on the cables. You did it yourself or custom bought (Lutro, Cablemods...etc...)?

Has anyone compared the R5's front panel to the Define S in terms of noise and air flow?

The Define S is quite hollow, and can result in a humming/drone noise from the fans. A slight bit of pressure on the inside or outside muffles it quite a bit.
Does the R5 door with it's thin piece of damping, handle sound better?

Just put some foam on the inside and call it a day.
