Forget the triple tower coolers, make the case a giant heatsink that can dissipate 2000w boiiii.

How big would a single tower need to be to have that sort of thermal performance I wonder ?

Wasn't there a concept case a while back that acted as a heatsink of sorts?

Ya I've seen something like that, the NSG S0, but it dissipates 180w for CPU and 250w for GPU. The case looks pretty cool, they could design another one to accept fans in a discrete looking way, as to still give it a fanless look.

That means the 5 intakes an only move as much air into case as back and bottom vents and let out and as the back and bottom vent area is only about half what the front and top are, your intake fans can only flow at most about half as much air as their potential. And in a system needing a 140mm of air for CPU cooler and 1-2x intakes for GPU that's not enough cool airflow.



Top fan farthest to the back is running the opposite direction of what it should .. if a top fan is even used there.

Middle top fan fan is blowing down into cooler that has 2x fans trying to flow air back thru cooler and out of case.



Only the front most top fan might be helpful, and it's limited by 5.25" bay cage.


As others said, remove the PSU shroud and use bottom intake to flow air up toward PSU.

That bottom intake will also flow much better if case is raised 20-30mm so there is about 40mm of space between bottom of case and what it's setting on. This give about the same airflow area to bottom vents as bottom vent area airflow. I use and open top caster base bu
t longer feet, square wooden blocks, hockey pucks, spray can caps, etc will all work. Here's link to details about this:

Above link also has info about how restrictive vent grill and filters are.

Here is a link to Define R series case mods to improve airflow.
https://www.overclock.net/forum/23754692-post48.html

Not sure if I've posted it, but here is link to info about how airflow works and how to optimize case airflow and cooling.
https://www.overclock.net/forum/22319249-post5.html


Tried your suggestion of removing bottom cage


The top fans are now exhaust


Repasted and dusted a bit


I still max out at around 200w but the temps are peaking at 90c on cpu package (4.4 1.37v), only small improvement.

It would be helpful if you could give us the room temp and the temp inside the case. Are you using both HDD cages?
The Luxe has this silly front shield that covers the front intakes. Many people remove that (case won't be as pretty).
Another thing you could do, if you are not using the top drive cage and the 5.25" cage, is to remove both. That helps a lot in getting air faster to the CPU cooler. It is how I'm currently running my Enthoo Pro.

Room temp 24c.


The shield is removed, I forgot to mention that. But I don't think that would matter much.


I'm using both the HDD cage, but the 5.25" is empty. Is it possible to remove the 5.25 bay?





I can test with the side panel removed, if that would help?

Yes, you can remove the 5.25" bay. However, since you are using both HDD cages it may not be a good option. The top HDD drive cage latches to the bottom of the 5.25" cage, so removing it may reduce the stability of your HDD cages.

Monsterlabo The First is in production. According to their website it can handle a 9900k and GTX 1080 passively cooled while still being small form factor (19L). There is a bottom mount for a 140mm fan, and a 200mm top mount in the works.
