360s are fine because they're thin enough not to hit the rear IO plate, when you use a 420 up top it will sit above the rear IO plate which has 30mm or so clearance from the roof. This is the issue I'm having.

Hi all, Im thinking to buy this case Fractal Design Arc Mini R2 and I want to install a AIO cooling system, like Thermaltake Water 3.0 Ultimate (3x120) and I want to confirm that this radiator fix in the top of this case, if not me second option could be a 2x140 AIO system, I know that can install a 2x120 radiator like Corsair H105 but I would like to install the best performance system that can be installed in this case (on the top of this case) only AIO system.

I need to use the 2x5.25" and 6x2,5" bays so can´t be removed.

advices?

many thanks and br

Only issue with an AIO 140mm is I'm assuming 1 is for the GPU? If so there might be an issue with hose length reaching the top of the case. Yes you can install 2 140s up there though.

In order to install a 2x140 AIO like Corsair H110i GTX I need to make addtional holes in the top of the case?

Yeah. You're good with a 280mm rad. I guess I read you other post wrong. It sounded as if you wanted 2 individual 140mm rads. Again, in that case hoses from a gpu might not reach.

Yep, I`ve heard of those I\O problems
But from the other side - many managed to do this with slim (30 mm) 420 rads. I even thought to give a try to my Coolgate 420 60mm and put fans up the top but changed my mind and going to do two 360 (one will be EK PE 360, for other - hav not decided yet).

Does anyone know if there are plans for a Define XL R3? I was looking at the XL R2 and it ticks all the boxes for me but I see that it was released 3 years ago, so I was just wondering if there would be a newer version coming....

Yeah, I've been wondering the same for a while. An updated XL R3 with some upgrades like the one from R4 to R5 would be really nice to see.

Folks,

I'm interested in the Fractal Design Define S for a new build I'm planning. I've tried searching for the answer, but haven't had any luck, so my apologies in advance if this has been answered somewhere and I missed it.

I'd like to mount a 360mm radiator at the top, but for the life of me can't seem to figure out if a push/pull config will work? Also, while I have an existing XSPC 360mm rad, I'm open to suggestions on something new, as it's about 3-4 years old now.

I plan to use an ASUS Maximus VIII motherboard, but have't figured out what RAM to use yet.

Thanks very much in advance for any advice!
