I know you can fit a 240mm in the R4 I've seen a few videos and threads on it, I would probably check the dimensions perhaps Google it is your best bet

I made the unusual choice of going from a Cosmos II to a Define R4. I had already built an HTPC with the R4 and loved it so it was just a matter of time before I got another one. Amazingly, my temps are great and the overall noise profile is much quieter. Though it also downgraded from SLI GTX 680s to 660TI's which aided in that happening. I have Asus DCUII models and they are practically silent and temps are phenomenal in the R4. I dont even have a side door fan for the gpus because the temps made me cocky. Will post pics tomorrow.

I've been playing around with tube routing in my new Arc Midi R2 this evening. I think I've settled on this:



That's just temporary 1/2" OD tubing; the final tubing will be 5/8" OD. The radiator fans will be in Pull configuration with 30mm shrouds and that top tube going from the bay reservoir to the motherboard is actually going to end up passing directly thru a shroud (dremel time!).

Yes, there is enough room for the power supply cables, but just barely. Heating them up with a hair dryer got them to be flexible enough to make that sharp bend w/o too much stress on the pins.

Nice and clean. Which fans are you using and are you planning to go Push/Pull?
30mm shrouds, I would have gone with 10mm gaskets instead.

I was originally planning on going with the Swiftech Helix 120mm; I thought the white blades would look cool with my white cables and tubing. After testing them against my old GT AP-15's, tho... I'm going to stick with the GT's. The GT's just move a lot more air thru the radiators & filters with a more "pleasing" swoooosh. biggrin.gif

The radiator fans will all be Pull.

Got really confused when I looked at the CPU. redface.gif Looks nice and clean though.
