All in all though I do like the case (Arc midi r2) and have been recommending it

Just installed a H110i GTX in my Define S.

I'm a bit disappointed that I wasn't able to install the fans using a pull config, since the radiator is too wide and gets blocked by the edges of the motherboard backplate of the case. Pretty tight fit cause of the 140mm noiseblocker eLoop at the back.

No offense intended but If you had taken the time too look at pictures here or read any reviews you would have known that wasn't going to happen. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Tempted to start my Core 1000 build again.... Starting to get some spare time again, wallet isn't going to support most of it, but at least some modding and fitting the hardware will happen pretty soon.

Probably going to watercool the CPU soon, but the GPU has to wait, i might even get rid of it and the mobo to make myself a silent ITX build...

I've actually read and watched tons of reviews and never really saw this issue mentioned. All I heard/read 1000 times is that it's a great watercooling case. The specs on FD's site also didn't mention anything.

I was aware of the 55mm clearance for fan + rad when it comes to thickness, but never really expected 140mm wide radiators to be an issue.

I preferred pull, but I'm guessing push won't make too much of a difference.

Does a ek-KIT X360 fit this case properly?

Anyone who has some LED strips in a Define S case? I'm looking for something which isn't too flashy or lights up my entire room, but something subtle that simply makes the components nice and visible by night. Like this for example:



I'm guessing one at the top and one at the bottom would give the nicest effect? I'm aware of the BitFenix and Phobia ones, but I'm thinking two of these bad boys would do the job, no?

Those would be OK. Placement depends on what you have in your case. What is your set up with fans or rads?

Yes should be fine.
