If you have the case, you can measure it yourself: Just measure the distance from CPU to side panel.
Okay ill Try Measuring From Cpu to Side panel later then see if i can find the Right height for The 212 Evo. Thanks

Yeah, I noticed just now looking at it. If you install a 120mm side panel fan, then you can only fit up to a 135mm HSF.

As a result of taking the front panel off on my R3 so much I broke the connectors on the power switch. Damn thing was so small it took me 1 hour+ to solder it back together. Pain in the ASS! Be careful you guys tongue.gif


Question: My side panel that covers the cable management area bows out in the middle. Anyone have any solutions to straighten it back up?

What's the point though? I won't benefit from it anyway. I doubt I will be replacing the HSF anytime soon, so why put all the work into modding the side panel to fit a larger heatsink?

Hello guys, I plan on getting a Fractal Design Define Mini, but I wanted to know if this case can have a 360 radiator mounted on the back of the case without the radiator hitting the "floor". Anyone tried it or have pictures with a triple radiator on the back? I currently have a CM 690 II and a Fractal Design Define R3, but after downgrading from quad 7970 to dual 7970, there seems to be a lot of "extra" room, and I think I can squeeze it all inside a Fractal Design Define Mini with a single triple rad with 1850RPM GTs. I have an EK XTX 360, but I might get a Black Ice GTX360 depending if they perform well with low speed fans (quietness is the largest factor for me).

Thanks!

That's simply the enjoyment of case modding wink.gif and I don't waste time making points...just a suggestion here & there.
You do what you like at the end of day whistle.gif
