In the Fractal Define R6 manual, it specifies that for top-mounting a 280mm AIO it has to be 36mm max. (here)
I can't figure out if this is referring to radiator depth, or radiator+fan.
Can someone clarify?
I'm also unsure whether to go for NZXT Kraken X62 or Corsair H115i RGB Platinum.
36mm is the max motherboard component height, which generally means ram height. 280mm top rads mount closer to the board, so tall ram tends to get in the way.
I always thought FD cases were somewhat nice I like the clean look but most of all the amount of HDD's that can be mounted. This build will be purely for data storage so I want to fill the case with as many HDDs as possible.
Atm. I have about 80TB of storage in Caselabs S8S, the case have active cooling for each 4x4 HDDs so as far is temps, Its all good but I would like case where I can fit at least 12 HDDs at the same time for the case integrity to remain.
I was watching a video and I wish I recall it where, but person had I think R6 and because the way HDD trays were mounted some of the HDDs were sagging and touching each other I would hate to have that happen to me.
