Case For Dual 360MM Radiator

I was looking to change my case in order to house x2 Hardware Labs Black Ice SR2 Xtreme+ 360 MP Multi Port Radiators and an EK-XRES 140 Revo D5 PWM.

Radiator Dimensions:
398mm x 133mm x 60mm (L x W x H)

I'm not looking for anything particularly aesthetically pleasing, that has tempered glass, and so forth.

I'm looking more for functionality at a reasonable price and was looking at the Fractal Design Define S:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...KL5A1OLE&psc=1

Could this case house these two radiators or would someone have another suggestion?

CPU: Intel Core i5-8600K - 5GHz (Delidded | vCore: 1.435v | Cache: 4800MHz) | GPU: MSI GTX 1080ti Armor OC [Core: 2100MHz | Memory: +600MHz | Voltage: 1.15 | XOC BIOS] | RAM: TEAM GROUP DARK PRO EDITION (8GB x 2 | Frequency: 3866MHz | Timings: 16-16-16-36 | vDIMM: 1.45v) | Motherboard: ASUS PRIME Z370-A | PSU: Seasonic PRIME ULTRA GOLD 1000W | CPU Block: EK Velocity | GPU Block: EK-FC1080 GTX Ti TF6 | Radiators: x2 HWLabs SR2 360MM  | Pump / Res: EK-XRES 140 Revo D5 PWM | Fans: x6 Noctua NF-F12

Why don't you check on fractal design website?
In general, the limiting factor is the thickness of the rads: the SR2 xtreme are 6cm thick.
Just looking at the pictures I would say that you can fit one of those only on front, and you are better at checking the exact case specs beforehand.

I went with a generous midtower (see signature) and got a mATX mainboard to have enough clearance for two thick 360 rads like you want to do. You basically need a full tower for your setup.

The vanilla S2 and Meshify S2 can fit a front and top 360 fine depending on your motherboard/RAM. If you have big heatsinks on your VRM or RAM it's a no go though.

Intel i9 9900K Coffee Lake @ X8 5309mhz (+47.5%)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)
Intel i5 4690K Haswell @ X4 5013mhz (+43.2%)
AMD X4 960T Zosma @ X6 4870mhz (+62.3%)
Intel i7 6700 Skylake @ X4 4709mhz (+38.5%)

I'd also look into the P600s from Phanteks:
http://www.phanteks.com/Eclipse-P600s.html


Page 19 reads:
TOP 120mm Radiators: A:405mm B:126mm C:65mm*
FRONT A:465mm B:148mm C:95mm
*If the motherboard and its components (e.g. memory) are 50mm or lower there is no limit in Radiator thickness.
http://www.phanteks.com/assets/manuals/PH-EC600PSTG.pdf

P600S vs Meshify S2 , slightly bigger for people with thick radiators.

Actually it is the opposite. According Extreme Rigs reviews, SR2 is ideal for low speed fans. in fact it is the opposite. So much so that it has only 9 fpi.

Yes, I confused with another rad.

I use an Inwin 303 with 360 GTS on top and 360 SR2 at the bottom with EK-XRES 110 Revo D5 PWM and work pretty well for the price of the case.


I was planning to use 2 360 SR2 top and bottom but the top can only fit up to 70mm radiator and fans clearance . the only solution I can think is install the fans at the back of honeycomb next to power supply on the top radiator as push and use a 600 watt mini itx power supply but I have not done it yet.

It's a strange mix - one rad designed for highspeed and one for low speeds. How fast do you run your fans? I assume singles push. It's a dual loop perhaps?

The GTS and SR-2 are both great low speed rads. Literally the top 2 on the old radiator roundup 750rpm test.

These are both rads designed for low speed fans and are absolutely complementary.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....
