// Before anyone asks, I'm not planning on posting a build log else ware. Just wanted to show you what was involved with fitting 2x 280mm radiators in my R4, To me all the images were juicy enough to post thumb.gif //

Hey guys, Purchased the R4 and fell in love, Then decided to tweak the system a little

16gb Gskill TridentX @ 2400mhz
Asrock Fatal1ty Z77 Professional

Samsung Pro 128gb Windows 8/Apps
OCZ Vertex 4 256gb Games Drive
WD Caviar Black 1tb Temp Drive
WD 200gb Work Drive
CoolerMaster 850w Silent Pro Power Supply
Some bitfenix Extensions



Now...

I've decided to water cool her,
Parts as followed:
XSPC Raystorm Copper Waterblock
EK DCP 4.0 Pump & Res Combo
FRONT- Hardware Labs SR1 280
TOP- XSPC EX280
Koolance Dual 140mm Shroud

I'm thinking of switching my Corsair 550D to the R4 Window. I have an all blue led thing going, and well the 550D with its white led is throwing things off!

Hey guys, is it possible to remove the door from the Define R4 and Define XL R2? I imagine the airflow through a front mounted Radiator would be better with it gone.

How are the rubber gourmets in the R4? In my old R3 they came out very very easy and would not really stay in. In my Corsair 550D they are nice stable and stay in great.

They have been redesigned, and are much better quality thumb.gif (aka: they stay put)

Good to know. I just bought the R4 Black Pearl Window from Newegg. I'll use my Corsair 550D in my backup system....Also forgot to ask is the front door more of a matte black as opposed to a glossy black?

I have this case. If you look from a bit far it's like matt black,glossy black kind of effect but when you go close its more like titanium brushed finish. I just don't know how to tell you. I kind of think its like two tone effect. It depends on the lighting of your room. But all i know is that you would love this case
