post #221 of 15844
My only problem is, the cases come with no WC'ing space in mind. I would have to do a rear mount or sell my kit. Unless I could some how mod the rad in behind the front door of the case, but that would probably not work due to the HDD cages...

For the XL, maybe down in the lower HDD area? or remove the mid HDD cage and modify the 5.25" bay area a little. Idk, I'm not a WC person. Stay air for the simplicity.

Depending on which case you are talking about, the Define r3 can be used for wc. The only gripe is you can only use two 240mm rads. One up top and if you don't need the extra HDD cages one on the front. You could also take the cart apart and get a cutout for a 360mm rad up top.

I didn't see any holes up top for mounting a 240 rad up there. I'm looking at getting the R3. I thought you could put them up front, but since I don't have a case in front of me. I don't know how much room is up there.

For the top, it has holes for 140mm fans along with 120mm fans.

For the front its 2 120mm fans and can fit a 240 rad there as well.

I've been trying to plan a good way to WC the r3 I don't like how my layout is going. Plus I'm stuck with an asus amd board which they don't make waterblocks for... sigh

Crap... I see that now...

I kept looking at the XL and not seeing holes at the top.
Perfect, looks like it would be good afterall.

And what you do you mean? Are you talking about MoBo WB? Or?

yeah the mobo chipset block, the loop would look soo much better to have the chipsets cooled along with my sli setup and cpu...but I would be taking a gamble with temps trying to cool all those components with 2x 240 rads.

here is a picture of someone over at XS who installed a rad in the front

So I don't know if any of you have seen this yet, but I just noticed this on newegg, and I know they weren't there a couple days ago. Gonna be going on sale any day now it looks like. No more $50 shipping from NCIX, can't wait to do my first build this summer with the R3.
