I think it is the way arround.... The mb tray is diferent because of the rear drive mount.
The Define S was released to respond to the people that wanted to remove all of the R5 interior to do a custom wc build.

For me the R5 is for aircooling or at most AIO WC kits.

I was wrong... The drive bays can be removed.

But for a custom wc build the define S has the pump and reservoir place for it.
On the R5 we will have mod where to place it.

Another deal breaker to me is that the R5 can only have on the front 2 fans.

And the bottom on S is just like R4 etc.

S is a mix up of R4 and R5 and custom S parts.

Went with the Node 804. This is my first experience with Fractal Design, and thus far it has been excellent. Had a faulty header on the front panel I/O, Fractal sent a replacement for free. Why can't customer support with other companies be this painless?

That aside, I love this thing. Still waiting on a few parts, but the finished build will be comprised of these:

CPU: 6600K
Cooling: Cryorig H5 Ultimate, barely fit by one cm
MB: ASUS Maximus VIII GENE
Mem: G.SKILL TridentZ DDR4 3200 16GB
PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA G2 750W
Video card: GTX 1080, haven't made my mind up on which specific model
Storage: Samsung 850 EVO 500gb

Nice and clean build. I've considered the 804 a few times, but haven't pulled the trigger...yet.

Been looking hard at the Define Nano S as of late…

I have REALLY been lusting after some of the 'boutique SFF cases' that have been in the works lately, but kinda worried about temps, so looking towards this undecidedly non-SFF chassis…

A few questions for any that may know or have an opinion on…

1 - The cable pass-thru (NON-grommeted) that is BELOW the MB location (I have heard somewhere; from the manufacturer or in this thread, I cannot recall) that is is intended for audio cables… Assuming front panel audio cables, would these be threaded between the MB I/O region & below the GPU…?

2 - Thoughts towards passing the cable from the U.2 port on the Asus M8I MB that would connect with an Intel 2.5" 750 Series NVMe SSD thru that same opening…? Would hope the cable provided with the drive would be long enough to reach the 2.5"/3.5" SSD/HDD mount located in the 'deep end' of the 'backstage' cable management / drive mounting section of the chassis…

3 - While a full-blown hard tubing custom loop would be awesome; a 240 Predator & pre-filled 1070 water block (both with QDCs of course) would be WAY easier to assemble & half the price of a custom loop… So, will the 240 Predator suffice for an Intel i5 6600K & EVGA GTX 1070 SC Gaming ACX 3.0; with absolutely zero overclocking planned…?

4 - I REALLY want to keep the sound to a minimum, so I would be getting the NON-windowed version… Also due to wanting minimal noise, I would leave the ModuVent panel with the sound dampening material place in place on top, meaning NO fans exhausting out the top… The only exhaust would be the rear 120mm fan (which I would replace with an EK Vardar F4-120ER (2200rpm/PWM) fan… Obviously it would be a positive pressure situation, but thoughts towards the dual 120mm fan intake (airflow of same somewhat restricted due to the radiator) with a single 120mm fan exhaust (with no restrictions of its airflow)…?

As an aside, I will be using a Corsair SF600 SFX PSU in this chassis; mainly because I already have one on hand & the adapter plate is coming in next week (for use with a temp gaming rig while I accumulate the bits & pieces for the Define Nano S)…

Thanks for any advise or tips in regards to my questions on this chassis…!

It will fit fine, I've not failed to fit a res between an 970 and the front with fans or a radiator on the front.

Any pics?
Is the 970 strix the same length of the 10x0 strix?
