Hey guys, Im planning a rebuild on my Define R6, I currently have a EK SE240 up top and EK SE360 up front. My [email protected] +MOSFETs +1080ti temps under load are CPU:55c-58c and GPU:52-55c. Im assuming jumping to a 3900x or 9900KS will increase heat, so im thinking about adding a 360 rad up top.

my question is, in the pic I've attached in this post, I see most pics for the 360rad up top the ports always face the back with the tube run directly below it feeding the rad in front. Is there no way to make both rads have there ports at the front for a cleaner build ?

1 x A12x25 Roof Exhaust

D15s CPU cooler



(3xA12x25 in front have shown to cool better, with 2-4 dB less noise then 2x Noctua A14 in front on this particular case.)



Cut up the PSU shroud for better air flow, remove all PCI slots, cut out grills in front of Exhaust fans for maximum airflow.
Placing so many fans and doing all those mods, are only gonna be worth it, only if u run fans fast, at very least 800 RPM. Otherwise you're just destroying the case.

I do agree that the top of the PSU shroud must be removed, the PSU shroud cleaned of cables, and the HDD cage removed. It has a big impact in GPU temps.

I can run the A12x25 at almost 1200rpm and get 33dB or close to ambient noise in our room. 60% of fan capacity.
At 1200RPM its producing 1.5 mmH20 Static pressure and pushing 30-35ish m3/h

Just extrapolating from a few graphs I have seen on tests on these fans.. in test setup.

Gives a rough estimate.. and only conjecture at my part.
I will get very different results.

You gonna have 5 fans, a GPU, other noise sources. At 1200rpm you gonna produce well above 33. While 33 it's not loud, it's very audible.

Also, if 1200 is your top RPM, you should consider sw3. At that RPM they're very, very close in stats and they gonna cost you 65% of the noctuas. The noctuas start to show performance gap over other premium 120mms at over 1200-1300rpm. And if you're running them as case fans, they're not gonna move a lot more air than other premium fans. That's because while static pressure increase very "parallel" with the RPM, the airflow does not.

I have the case and I'm running 2x140mm+120mm sw3 in the front. That's pretty much as good as it gets, with the current hardware and despite the nf a12x25 being much better than any other fan.

Anyone know if this vertical GPU cable mount will work for the Define S2?

Finally back from vacation, though I've no idea how I missed your reply since I wasn't even gone yet.

They're technically not wrong if you're talking about JUST the front panel itself, but it would have been worth a 2nd tweet to explain that you can still make the swap if you change both the panel and the I/O together. You just need two parts to make it work since you can't fit the Define C's ports in the Meshify C panel or vice versa.

We've peeled these panels apart in exactly the same way, multiple times on dozens of occasions, and I've never seen any tabs come off without using cutters. On the one hand it'd probably be kind of a stretch to call it a warranty issue, but on the other hand that really sucks and it shouldn't have broken like that. Might still be worth opening a case with our support team to see what they can do. They'd know firsthand how tough those filters should be because they're the ones who do most of the aforementioned bending and cutting to test these things out.

The PCB and screw holes on the riser card face the wrong direction, so aside from the bracket there'd unfortunately be no way to screw it in. A big shipment of Flex VRC-25 vertical risers just arrived in the US today though, so if you've been looking for the official part I'm told it should finally be in stock at retailers again by this weekend, maybe as soon as tomorrow.

I've just ordered a meshify c.

Has anyone mounted an Corsair h115i in it with a Crosshair vii x470? Mounting on the front / top?

I haven't ordered my cooler yet so I may end up just going for a noctua Air cooler but I like how the AIO look.
