post #14811 of 16134
I thinks it's mostly due to my big ass 150mm res and pump. It goes from the bottom all the way to the top rad, maybe 5mm between res intake fitting and the radiator. It gets to about 75c with wprime.. The idle temps are good though. The real question is would it be better without the top rad?

Move it down slightly give yourself 15mm clearance then put 15mm thick fans on to the rad and you'll be fine. Also prime is a heat program so 75c is hot indeed I use x264 because it produces less heat and finds instability very easily.

You can also put your fans behind the front bezel on the define S so is it not possible for you to do the same with the nano?

This might be the best place to ask, has anyone used PH-TC14PE inside the define nano s? I understand to have a chance for it to fit I should swap the fans out to 120mm ones, even then im not sure if it fits.
post #14814 of 16134
120mm rear fan, narrow case, the cooler may just fit so you can close the side panel. That is if you move the fans down low or replace them with smaller ones so they don't stick over the heatsink.
They should honestly stop making these narrow cases with 120mm rear fans. But I guess they are too popular for watercooling for that to happen.

Usually small form factor cases have small systems in them with a small cooler or AIO so it wouldn't make much sense to stop making them this way. If all else fails mount the fan on the outside of the case, it's not a big deal?

Hey there,

i just got new R5 white (no window) for my upcoming X99 build. Have the boxes around for about 3 weeks, originally planning to just replace the components inside my current case (Define R2), but for whatever reason had no time for that...and ultimately decided to get new case and PSU too.

The whole build: gigabyte X99-P SLI, i7 6850k, 32GB Corsair DDR4, 2x Evga GTX 1080 FTW, 1x Intel 530 SSD, 2x Samsung EVO (250 and 500 GB), 2x WD Caviar 2TB (Black and Green, keeping from my current rig)...

Now, from i could gather, i am going to face issues putting it all together, thus i seek advice over here. The issues are going to concern the AiO watercooling (Corsair H105) - i dont know where to mount it.

Regarding top position, i have read there may be clearance issues, cause its more than 55 mm thick.... can anyone confirm it? Even if this was not true, is this optimal position? Lot of noise dampening is going to be taken away from the top of the case and then there will be dust falling through....

Front position - i would need to remove all the drive cages, where do i put my drives? 2 SSD are gonna go behind motherboard tray obviously, but what about the remaining one and 2 HDDs? I cant move the smaller cage to the centre of the case, cause it would prevent me to install second GPU... any ideas, how to solve this?

Bottom position - should work, if i remove the smaller bottom drive cage, but i dont think the tubing of H105 would reach CPU from this position? Any idea whether yes or no?

Thx for any advices

It looks like the top is your only real option. As far as clearance goes it shouldn't be a problem as long as you place your H105 towards the window. Is your's the 240mm version? If its the 280 then you might have clearance problems. As for sound damping there's not much you can do. I would advise buying a magnetic dust filter for the top though, as much for looks as for reducing dust. To me this seems like you best option.

Thanks! Good to know there wont be any clearance issue, finally straight answer. I have 240mm version indeed, did not even know there is 280mm one.

I actually have 2 of those magnetic filters inside my current R2, alongside 2 Noctua NH14 fans. I planned to migrate those to the new rig anyway. Not sure those filters fit now though, if the case is wider than R2 (and grills on top too).

Anyway, googled around a bit and find this contraption:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IV8yRaweFsU

if i could live without optical drive (chances are i could, since i use them like once per year at best), i could buy 2 of these and fit all my drives in there. So no need for any HDD cage, could then place the radiator the front, problem with the front mount solved.

The question is, what about airflow in this case? With top mounted radiator its easy, radiator being outtake, so is the fan in the back, front of the case serving as intake. But what about the front version? If i have radiator as intake, then add another fan on the floor of the case between the radiator and PSU as another intake and have one outtake in the upper back, will this provide enough airflow/pressure/whatever to call it? I could possibly use the moduvent on the side panel as another intake if needed too... But would love to keep the top of the case closed, if there is no radiator.

You should have no trouble getting sufficient ventilation with this setup. Also keep in mind that the rad is the part doing the actual heat dissipation, so your CPU is getting fresh air, so to speak, regardless of the temps in the board area. The only real concern is the GPU, and I believe it should have no trouble getting plenty of airflow in the scenario you describe. I wouldn't think a side fan should be necessary in this configuration.
