post #13772 of 16052
Hey guys I wanted to get some input for a build I'm doing with a Node 804 soon, specifically the layout:

- 6700K/980ti both plan to be under custom loop

- Going with a Swiftech 220x X2 mounted up top on the mobo chamber

- Potential 240 rad up front (if mounted top)

Questions:

1. Builds like this one seem to barely fit and I'm wondering if there are any limitations with mobo VRM heatspreader clearance to watch out for. Would it be better mounted up front as an intake instead? Would the stock tubing even reach?

2. Hard drive cages seem to be all in or nothing from reviews since the railings on the cage prevent the installation of anything else in the secondary slot. Are there other feasible areas to mount storage? We're going to go with m2 SSD just to save space and plan to have 1-2 mechanical drives as backup and storage. This would free up the left chamber for radiator mounting making life much easier.

Thanks!

Lots of interesting features. I particularly like the sliding pump mount. I hope that makes it to the ATX Define S refresh.
post #13777 of 16052
This is clearly in progress and some of my modifications were inspired by the Define S build by Bill Owen (Monstermawd) over at MNPCtech which can be seen on the Fractal Design website as well as his own site. Clearly, I've taken it my own direction, although I did use his tutorial on the front panel cutout as somewhat of a guide to my front cutout. The intention with this was to get an H440 red/black type color scheme using the Define S which I felt had more room and features than the NZXT case did.

Still plenty of stuff to do on this including the custom "Man of Steel" case emblem which is to represent the S in Define S and the Skylake CPU it uses, plus, Superman is just a badass anyhow, so why not. Going to be custom sleeving the PSU cabling using para 550 paracord at some point, installing Aerocool DS 140 red/black fans as I wasn't extremely happy with the overall look of the Noctua NF-A15's after coloring them with vinyl dye and adding a few more interior touches like a custom PSU cover and custom made panel for the back wall on the right hand side where the liquid cooling reservoir is intended to be mounted.

Also planning to add an NZXT Grid v2 and Hue+. I may or may not actually go with a custom loop at some future date, but for now I intend to continue using the Noctua cooler that's in there. A little bit of photoshoping the background out doesn't hurt either. Build is as follows:

Intel i7-6700k
Gigabyte Z170x-Gaming 5
G.Skill DDR4 3000mhz TridentX 16GB
4x Noctua NF-A15 case fans (These will be replaced in the next few days with the DS 140's)
Noctua NH-U14S with an NF-A14 PWM fan (This has more static pressure and more pleasant sound pitch than the A15 that comes on it.)
Sapphire R9-280 Dual X graphics card (Placeholder until I can get a decent card in there. Recently sold my 290x to my beggar brother whose older card died on him and was pestering me since he knew I planned to replace it anyhow)
Define S case
EVGA G2 750w PSU
Samsung 850 EVO 240GB SSD
3 x1TB HDDs

Huh. I like it!

Interested to see if it'll fit an ek predator 240 in the front or top. Looks like a solid maybe up top and a doubtful in the front.

I don't have much desire to sli so an it would be OK for me. No need for any mech drive storage as I have a Nas so this just might be what I'm looking for. Of course it has to fit the predator or its a deal breaker,for me.

Ugh. Cards wider than dual slot not recommended. Bummer. My amp extreme is like 5 slots wide! (2.5-3 actually)

Yeah, I guess maybe a little. I've never even seen that configuration before. I generally avoid prebuilt systems and the companies that make "custom" prebuilts, so I'd have probably never encountered that.
