E-ATX is generally about 1" wider right? There should be plenty of clearance to accommodate the board + h100/h100i in an R4. I am sure there are pics of people doing it earlier in the thread but I am too lazy to look for them. The clearance at top should not be any different either.

I'm thinking about mounting a fan on the side of my two video cards like you have. Can't really tell from the picture how you accomplished that, would be awesome if you could show us how that was done!

Cooling is great! The AF140's are quiet at 12v and silent at 7v.....the SP/AF120's are a different story at 12v.....I'm running everything at 7v, temps are awesome! thumb.gif

Indeed, I've got an R4, a Rampage IV Extreme in it and I had an H100i (before I switch to full custom loop).
Check my rig pics, those with H100i are still there.

You can also front-mount it.

I did.

i used the following brackets:

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/16145/slf-11/Akust_Adjustable_Magnetic_Fan_Bridge_Mounting_Kit_BK00-0107-AKS.html?tl=g40c18s62

and also one of these:

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/17728/slf-13/Expansion_Slot_Side_Fan_Mounting_Kit_-_Black.html?tl=g40c18s62

the one with magnet feet sits on the floor of the case where the drive bays used to be in the r4. it holds an af120 quiet edition which blows air over the cards from right to left.

the expansion slot bracket just mounts using existing expansion slot screws. this is holding a sp120 perfomance edition which is cut down to about 60% power in the bios. i tried using two bracket so the fan could be secured at all corners but the spacing was just slightly off for everything to line up and look neat.

one expansion bracket is enough though. i have no rattling or movement what so ever. also no noticeable added noise that i can tell from the addition if these two fans (and I'm sensitive to that stuff when im not gaming).

this setup was done because i have a sound blaster z sandwiched in my sli which was raising temps to 85ish on my oc'ed 670 ftw+'s. my temps now almost never break 75 and mostly stay at 70 (just under throttling temps)

very pleased! here are a few pics too, hope that helps!
