Hi guys,

Any of the owners of a Fractal Design Define Nano S in here that can take some measurements for me please ?
I want to know how much clearance there is in the top and front for a 60 mm tick 240 radiator + fans....
Basically I am looking to see if there is at least 87 mm (Minimum) - 95 mm (Ideal) from top of the case to the Motherboard and how much is that 87 mm -95 mm going in on the front radiator...
I am using a Maximus VIII Impact motherboard which has the power raiser card so I have to take that into consideration as well for the top rad...
And I am looking at buying a 1080 ti so I have to be careful of that as well when I take into consideration the front radiator...

Many thanks smile.gif

I don't think it'll fit. Look at my pics on the last page, I had to trim some of the fans away to clear my RAM and that's with a 30mm rad. A 30mm rad + 25mm for the fan is less than your 60mm rad alone, and you won't be able to trim away any of the rad..

Thank you for the reply GnarlyCharlie...I saw your pics after posting but if I have the exact measurement I might think about the possibility of Putting the Top rad outside the case and run the Hard Tube trough the case + Magnetic dust filters (Found a company that makes lovely custom ones..) and keep the fans on the inside...but still taking every possibility into considerations as Aesthetics have a big part of the decision as I will Sell the PC once its done (Or try at least smile.gif )

Radiator outside the case shouldn't be any problem, if the only thing iside is the fans, you got it made. My case is fairly packed, I'm not sure I can get an accurate measurment with all that stuff in there but I'll try (it'll be a couple of hours).

Thank you very much..As it stands now...I have 3 options:

EK-CoolStream XE 240 Top and Front... 60 mm
EK SE 240 Top and Front... 30 mm
or
The Nemesis 280 GTS X-Flow Top and Front... 29.6 mm

But I would be much more happy to go with the EK XE as I am pushing a really aggressive OC (5.2 - 5.3 Core / 4.8 Uncore 32Gb @ 3866 / 4000 CL12-14 which will a lot of heat load on the Rads + 1080Ti which hopefully will do 2050 ++)

EDIT: I already have the 2x EK SE 240 its just that I'm not impressed on performance...

I've got the same 7700K CPU, just at 5.0, and a TXp on a GTS 240 top/280 front and those are both 30mm radiators. You'll run out of room quickly with two radiators in the case, I don't think you'll get a 280 cross flow (if that's the one with a port on either end) in the front at all, and if you put one in the top, then the front rad will have to be something much smaller. If you mount them on the outside, then I suppose anything goes. Look at my pics again, I ended up moving the case divider over to get a 280 w/fans inside the front and there are about 5mm to spare height-wise on that rad. The 240 up top, I had to Dremel a little of the exhaust fan shroud away to clear the tube coming from the rad, and there's about 1mm between the front of that rad and the rear of the 280, so no extra room there. It's tight.

Really seems crammed.. you can't really have best from both worlds with these case unfortunately.. Will make some more notes and decide (but if you can provide those measurements just for my personal curiosity / record would be great)

At the moment it seems I either go with what I have or replace just the front rad with an 240 XE (60 mm ) and put the fans beneath the front cover / mask (could you also measure that space please ? between the chassis and front plastic cover )

Sound like i'm trying to push the limit here smile.gif...
Will keep you updated when I take a decision and a build log off course smile.gif

I can confirm that 140mm fans will fit under the front cover using the stock mounting positions in the case.

Yeah, but you can come close. This is the coolest running rig I have, it's been running the [email protected] BOINC application for a couple of days now, water temp between 35 and 38C. Looping heaven got the TXp up to 41c.

I can't get in there to measure it, the top edge of the mobo is totally behind the top rad/fans. I'd guess the distance would be right at 30mm, as the top of the ram sticks is just shy of the top of the mobo and I didn't have to cut the top fan flange away. That'd put the top of the mobo basically even with the bottom of the 30mm rad.
