Very impressive, I really like color coordination and the little mods you did on that. What heatsink is that, by the way?

Ordered my R4 today. So excited for it to arrive.

Edit: are the stock fans on it good? If not what should I pick up?

I think the stock fans are just fine. They are super silent, but don't move a lot of air in my opinion.

I've got a Fractal Design Define XL since last year June.
By far the most proper case I've ever had. It's stylish, quiet, airflow is ok, although I always have one sidepanel off the case.

I decided to get a custom watercooling loop last december so I had to mod the case a bit in order to fit a 240 rad at the top of the case.

I cut a hole on the top of my case and put a fan grill on it. ( Yes I know the hole isn't the prettiest one )

I just got my Define R4 in yesterday. Now the onlything I'm waiting for is the SSD which should come tomorrow.

Ahh I'll see what temps are like and I may have to replace them eventually then.

Thanks for the help

Nice builds guys. Really love all the creative and sleak things you do with the fractal cases. Here is my own little build. I hope you like and will provide feedback, positive please hahah. Constructive criticism is also more then welcome.

After reeding a lot of the posts in this Fractal Design topic, I decided to start my own in Fractal Design build. After some searching and defining my requirements, I ended up at the Define Mini. I wanted a small case that can handle a small but powerfull system.

So after some hardware jugling, moving from Z68 with a 2500k, I finally ended up at Socket 2011 with a I7 3820. I came across some bargain hardware I could not pass on.

I also decided that this m-atx should be housing my first Custom Watercooling loop. Below, if you keep reading, you will find a sort of build log. But first a overview of the hardware that will pass those brave enough to read on:

Hardware
Intel I7 3820
Asus ROG Rampage IV Gene
Mushkin Redline Ridgeback DDR3 1600mhz CL 7-8-7-24 T1
EVGA GTX670 FTW 2GB
Chieftec Nitro 88+ 850W
Corsair Force GT 64GB
Samsung HD103J

Watercooling
Aquastream XT Ultra
EKWB Supreme LTX CSQ Copper Plexi
Thermochill PA120.2
Aquacomputer inline tempsensor 2X
Aquascomputer flowsensor 1X
Aquacomputer temperature sensor 2
Antec H2O 620 with Dwood bracket

Here are some pictures to give you some idea of the build and the mods performed on the case (sorry about the grainy quality Iphone 4 and low light do NOT mix):

The starting point of the build, a Z68 Gene IV with 2500k setup.


I got everything out of the case, and in the mean time decided to go for socket 2011. I got a great bargain and was able to sell my 2500k setup with a small profit, so I decided to go for it.

First to make sure the radiator would fit in its intended place


Ready to start cutting


Cutting all done, there is room in the bottom of the 5,25 for the top of the radiator and the flowsensor and tempsensor.


I ordered some stands for the radiator cause the fan mounting holes on the rad did not match the fan spacing and placement of the define mini. The stands however were intended to be used with the radiator in a horizontal orientation. Not in a vertical position. Here some pictures. The stands are from bitspower.



I was planning to place the reservoir, just behind the radiator. Well that did not fly.


At least I got the holes drilled for the radiator stands. The stands will be placed on some spacers (doorstops from the hardware store)
The spacers can be seen on the bottom of the reservoir fitting photo.

Next up was the hardware installation, and assembling the first watercooling components.




Next up was the cpu loop completion and testing of the loop:

The test was succesfull. The next few days I fastened all the fittings a few more times. The first 2 times a couple of more tightening actions were easy, so additional tightening was necessary.

Continuing further with the build, I started with placing the hardware and all the wiring.


So next up was installing the rest of the hardware:
First up was the ram:


Followed by the GTX 670 with Antec 620 (with the scythe in this shot, facing the wrong direction. This has been corrected


After this it was all smooth sailing to the finish. So here are some overview shots. I plan on doing more including temperature results from before and after oc'ing. So I will be back. Here are the overview shots, enjoy.

^ That looks good but do you have bigger pictures by any chance?

I can't see much with those you provided tbh.
