I'm not a big fan of having my drives mounted via sticky tape, or having them external to the case.

I worked hard to ensure that the front fan on the 360 rad has at least 25mm of clearance between it and the bottom installed 5.25" bay component, so I shouldn't have any airflow issues.

No worries, this is a multi-stage, long-term project for me. I plan to eventually remove the bottom hdd rack, but not for this first iteration of the build as I'm limited on my funds at the moment. Feel free to dig into the build log! I'll be open to suggestions or observations at this point, as I'm still early in the life of this project. I'm actively working on grinding down the top radiator mount weld seams between moments of checking the forums here today. I'll be updating more in the log as I go along. smile.gif

Finally had a bit of time last two days to actually put things together and make sure everything works as it's supposed to.

Pictures a bit crappy cause of my camera phone so excuse me for that haha

A couple mods I plan on doing soon would include:

1) Modifying the bottom HDD cage that came with the case in to a shroud of sorts and placing it where the bottom fan is at currently

2) Making some backplates for my GPU's cause that pcb is plug ugly

Lot of other ideas I am kicking around but this will be a work in process for a while as I iron out exactly how I want it to look in the end. Any ideas?

I forgot to post my problem when I got my case 4 weeks ago.

I got the Black Windowed Define R4 for a great price.

Thankfully it didn't come cracked, or damaged, or with any broken cables. However...

The area where the power supply is mounted, there are 2 little raised bumps. One is significantly higher so my power supply is not flush and can only be mounted with one screw. I don't know if they cut the metal wrong or something when making the case.

Did anyone else have this problem?

I am considering returning it for a replacement. frown.gif

Why are you using your h100i as exhaust? It would be better to use it as intake. It would also blow more air to your gpu.

Agree with this guy. From what I see, you have at least 1 intake and 3 exhaust. I'm guessing more exhaust in the top as well. I'd definitely make that h100 intake, or put it on top as exhaust and mount two fans in the front as intake. I doubt that single intake fan on the bottom is good enough to cool your gpus and and that h100.

Edit: I looked again and saw that the back fan is actually an intake fan. Now, I'm not exactly sure how that would work out. You have some crazy reverse airflow thing going on. I would imagine that the h100 would still work best on top with this setup, but I'm guessing that it doesn't fit very well and that's why you had to stick it up front.

I use my h100 as intake with 360 mod in the front and only one exhaust fan with great results.
