I did it! No issiue. Only thinng is that you have to remove the most right top fan to when you need to work on the fron rad.
And the fans on the pic have been swaped out to corsairs new ml120 pros

Should put them on the front of the rad behind the front bezel. This will give you more space and they will perform as intended.

Yeah i already did biggrin.gif
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

But the thing is that i still had to remove the top right fan to swap out the old fans to the ml120.
There wasnt enough clearence to push the front rad back so that i could remove/install the new fans.

I think he meant to put the fans on the "outside" of the case, and leave the dust filter off, this way you'll have better clearance, however no dust filter..



But it looks like you don't necessarily need to do that in order to get it all to fit, it's just a slight inconvenience when you have to take the fans off/put them on.

Oh, sorry haha! I read "behind the front vezel" as behind the bracket. But i rather have them like that to have more airflow between the front and the fans.
I dont change my fans that often so 4 more screws dont bother me smile.gif

Thanks! Well i could have gone ridgid and used the wall bracket to mount the pump. But as of now i dont have a side panel window so i dont care that mutch.
I love the define S but i think the WC bug has bitten me and im looking for bigger case.

Problem is that there arnt any that i like.

900d is feels to plastic and bad quality for the price.
Caselabs is to expensive due to shipping to Sweden is 1/6 of the case cost.
Thermaltakes "Caselab" cases has gotten so bad reviews that it feels like a joke.

Im looking for a case with a pedistol but there isnt any frown.gif
Haf stacker they dont sell any more that i can get hold of here in Sweden.

I actualy was close to buying a new define S just to get the side panel window.
Fractals "spare parts" page never has the sidepanel in stock.

Email them, ask when they'll have them, and when they do see if they could message you.

Their customer support team is quite helpful.
