post #14201 of 16136
Those 3k rpm fans are good for a vacuum cleaner or making a floating case. I don't know how anyone can listen to 140mm fans above 750rpm all day. They are good fans but kind of useless for everyday use if you can't slow them down to 500-1000rpm at which point might have just bought any other fan and fill the whole case with fans for the price of one Noctua Industrial series fan.

Yes. It's arriving today. Angled connector > IEC socket at the back > normal cable biggrin.gif

Here's the situation at the back. Will tidy this up once the cable extensions come in.

Till 60% i can't hear them, till 80% i can hear them but it's nothing compared to my "idle" notebook. 6700K @4.5GHz 1.29V + Prime95 and the system stays quiet and cool (81°C max) with a silent fancurve. I could have bought 6-7 fans for the price, i agree, but i didn't want to.

Hey guys,

I am looking to purchase a Define S and I wanted to know if these radiators would fit. According to the manual (http://www.fractal-design.com/media/328f36b3-c9f0-44e2-9b76-3e3be0615542 ) the case should be able to fit a thick 360mm radiator in the front and a thin 360mm radiator on the top. Does anyone know if this setup will actually work though? A lot of the builds I see are using thin radiators or a 360mm on top and 240mm in the front.

Thanks.

It fits a thick 360 rad up top as well as up front.. but of course at some point the two will interfere. What thickness are you thinking of?
If you look around you'll be able to a see quite a few twin 360 builds.

People who ran into trouble have often mounted the fans on the outside/front (within the front cover still).. which immediately frees up 25mm. That setup impedes airflow a bit, but still acceptable if you're not fussed about the magnetic filter having to go in a drawer.

The thin limitation is more for 280/420 rads up top.. or in case you have 5cm+ tall RAM with 240/360. I'm running a 466mm long rad up top, so you can see there's quite a bit of space left for a front rad.

Measurements for the top rad:

from center of most front 360 mounting hole > front of the case: 73mm
from center of most back 360 mounting hole > back of the case: 58mm (takes into account the protruding 120mm fan mounts)

Your scenario, XE in front:
19 mm for the end of the GTS + 60mm for the XE is more than 73mm, so this would ONLY work if you move the GTS360 backwards
>> This probably looks best but you may need to drill some extra holes.

Another fit - XE on top:, GTS in front
This fits...my guess it's about a 15mm for the XE (short end) + 55mm for the GTS + fans or + 30mm with fans outside (better airflow)
>> Works without modding required

Rad on the outside of the case, drill some holes into the facia fans on the inside of the case is my plan for my 420 up top and my 360 on the front. biggrin.gif
