Hi all,

I have a Define Mini on its way for my 3570k/Gigabyte GTX 670 OC build. I plan on OC'ing the CPU to around 4.2/4.3 and possibly the 670 as well.

While I wait, I've been thinking a lot about how best to cool the system. I know the 670 with Windforce 3 is great for cooling the GPU but will dump some of that heat back in the case, so I want to make sure it doesn't impact the rest of the system much. I have a Hyper 212 EVO sitting here plus an Enermax T.B.Silence on its way (I went ahead and bought it today since Newegg has 20% off all fans and I'd figure I'd want an extra fan anyway). I'm considering the following but want to just see if anyone with more experience thinks there's a better approach.

  • 2 front 120mm (Enermax and stock) intake
  • 1 rear 120mm intake (stock)
  • Hyper 212 fan pushing towards exhaust

Is this going to be sufficient? Should I move any of the fans around or bother with either of the bottom or top fan vents? I know I could do better than sticking with the stock fans, but I'm more of a "buy only what you need if what you've got is sufficient" guy than getting the top end of everything.

Thanks in advance, looking forward to putting this thing together!

I ordered the Black Ice GTS 280 (slim). You will be able to see pics in my project thread hopefully by the end of next week. Btw, I saw another water cooled R4 in the water-cooling gallery thread. I don't think he posted here yet.

Edit: oh lol, he posted just few posts above. biggrin.gif

That I would call tight fitting.
I really like your build thumb.gif

Thanks!
I'm going to build a new system when Intel releases the new CPU's, but I'm not sure whether to choose mATX or mITX for watercooling.... I do want the mITX for the small size but it will limit me to something smaller than a 360 radiator.... But a mATX case such as Core 1000 can fit it. So im not sure yet, but somewhere in Q1 2013 i have to find that out,,,

I would put the Enermax up front, one of the stock fans on the side panel to push air directly on the gpu, and the stock 120 in the rear plus another stocker if you can find one for the top as exhaust. This way, there will be a little more intake than exhaust to keep some positive pressure.
It's so little!

Yea man I got an eye on you're build already, I'm loving it so far. I knew the R4 was a great case for WC'ing. All you got to do is offset the top 240mm rad a little and you're golden. I'm thinking of doing a 240+280 but I doubt I need that much cooling for a cpu only loop, but hey, the experience wont hurt. tongue.gif

Thanks a lot bud, yeash lightning. The only thing I hate about these open mesh cases is the dust thats for sure. Pretty cool water cooling setup you have in there good use of space. Thats pretty neat is there actually holes to hook the SSD to the drive cage or did you make your own for that samsung? Thanks again

Nothing special about it, Its screwed into one of the holes of the 5.25" bay with one HDD screw that came with the case.
I agree with the dust part, but can be fixed by removing the filter completly, because the case is made for positive airflow.(More air in to the case than out) and this makes it less dusty inside, so it would not be a major problem. Only reason for me for not removing it is that its harder to clean the dust inside the H50 than the filter smile.gif
