I was thinking the 360 rad on the front and then just putting exhaust fans on the top.

Just make sure you have nice positive air pressure in your case.

Just from your question earlier.. your internal clearance for video card + rads/fan is about 47-48 cm.
The setup is also depending on what you're after.. silence, max.performance, what cpu/gpu (both watercooled?) and what you've already got in rads.

If I was to go single rad in the Define S, I'd go with a top 420 as exhaust (lower fan speeds at 140mm, all heat blown out - not in).

If you've got that 360 already, I would try mounting it as exhaust at the top, and add some fans at front as intake. Experiment with covering the vents to the back area.. I found that front fans suck back in the air from there that it just pushed into the case... Also I'd avoid Fractals own fans.. they slow down a lot when facing any kind of static pressure (aka consider pressure fans instead of case fans) and have very little airflow

It has probably been posted before but I just want to add that I had very nice results populating the 3xfront intake and 1xrear exit with some decent fans in my Define S. I have a 290x that dumps a lot of heat in the case, which was a bit of a problem with the stock fans (screaming GPU and very hot CPU).
Anyway with this fan setup the GPU runs at the same noise level as open air (no case) and the CPU temps dropped a good 10C under GPU+CPU load compared to stock fans.

I went for the NF-p14s redux-1200rpm because after shipping it was the cheapest 4-pin fan with good specs. They seem alright except they all run quite faster than rated speed (almost 1400rpm), this is not a problem though because of MB fan control.

I have seen different opinions but the included fans do seem rather poor, they have low ratings on both static pressure and airflow, like very cheap fans. They are marketed as a compromise between pressure and airflow but it seems like it does poor in both. They are quiet and inexpensive though, but there's cheaper stuff that performs the same or better.

Well here's my build in a define S with 420mm rad and a 360mm rad.

^ Niiiiice!

Care to share some load temps? I'm always curious about the load temps when I see crazy rad set ups.

Will let you know when it's booted up but still doing cable management and stuff lol, keep getting distracted.

Hey guys bought a Define S to upgrade my system but have been offered a good deal on a x79 mobo, however its CEB Form Factor 12 inch x 10.5 inch ( 30.48 cm x 26.67 cm ), I saw people fitted EATX in the R5 however not so sure on S

Any idea if it'll fit?

Not without modding I would imagine, the motherboard tray comes out so you could always make your own rather than cutting the original up.
