Stick it through flubit

Just what I was after. Ordered, thanks.

Can't go wrong with Fractal Design.

As much as I like Fractal Designs Define series, this one surely is a poor design with gfx card pointing directly towards the PSU. They should have gone for a different layout. This only makes sense if you're water cooling the graphics card. And this case is too small for this anyway.

Anyone interested in getting a smaller case, I highly recommend the Thermaltake Suppressor F1. Very easy to build with despite being mini ITX, and cheap but doesn't look it.

I would avoid Fireworks Direct, rather pay a little bit more and have peace of mind.

What in case your case breaks down and stops working after a month?

No, more like either it gets damaged in transit or they mess up your order and you have to deal with them, which can take weeks with their slow replies.

If this isn't too your liking the core 1000 is pretty similar. PSU is at the top also so no GPU interference. This is one of those cases blower style is useful

​looks nice but from the specs I can only see 2x3.5", no mention of additional 2x2.5" bays

I think 2.5" drives are to be mounted onto the back of the MB tray

You're right, but I guess if you have a blower style fan on the card you should be OK though.

Probably. But for a case this size you shouldn't be restricted to blower style.
Not great value imo given you can have a thermaltake core v1 for less

It also seems able to take other board standards too: S Atx/Micro-Atx/Mini-Itx

​This is the same layout as my Define Mini which was fine with a power hungry HD 7870 Tahiti, no heat issues seeing as you're taking cool air through the PSU instead of feeding it warm air, it just means the PSU will run quiter if it's an intelligent one that adjusts its fan speed according to temperature

I have 2 Fractal R4 cases and they are great. I prefer loads of room to expand and work in.

Agree the location of the PSU isn't ideal if you are air cooling however this case is actually perfect for water cooling. There's ample room for 2 240mm radiators and a 110ml reservoir and separate pump. There's a YouTube video from Paul's Hardware (HotBox 2.0) that shows pretty much the exact config I'll be going for.

Ok. I didn't realise you could fit both at the same time. Looks like this case has a very specific purpose in mind. For water cooling seems a good design then.
Also that's some pretty sweet build you're going for. Good luck and enjoy!

True about the gfx card and psu, but my understanding is this can fit a radiator front and top? So water cooling both cpu and gpu is easily doable.
