Another tip: Tape the holes that remain open on the radiator bracket, so hot air doesn't recirculate back into the case.

4 exhaust fans and 3 intake from which two fans go through a radiator, you must have negative pressure in your case. How's the dust buildup?

Thanks, they are great. I was thinking about getting a pok3r RGB though, but I went with the ducky shine 5 instead and I don't regret it at all. I love a 100% keyboard.

Thanks! DeviantArt was the first place I looked but I couldn't find it.

The blocks and pump/res combo are from ekwb.com. Tubing, fittings and radiators are from alphacool.com

Thanks! I though bending the tubes perfectly would be extremely hard, but it went pretty smoothly. I could try to tidy up the cable management on the back. Luckily the tinted glass makes it look a lot better. :')

How did you get the fans on top of the radiator, between the top and the radiator bracket? I'd like to do the same thing, once I get all my parts, so I can start building.

I have the same case: I'm probably gonna go with 30mm thick alphacool radiators. A 360mm in the top and a 240mm in the front. 3 intake fans in the front (one will be in the basement, so there'll be no resistance by the radiator for that one) and 3 exhaust on the 360mm radiator, no fan in the rear fan slot. This will probably give my a nice balanced airflow and maintain positive pressure throughout the case. I'm probably gonna use 2200 rpm ek vardar fans, but running them around 1150 or so for a silent system.

how's the dust accumulation in your case, since it's just wide open.

overclock your 5820k and that performance gap will be negligible. 5820k overclocks quite well. Also the 2 more cores will have a huge benefit for rendering, etc...

Apparently the Phanteks' LED's I found on amazon.com are magnetic, so I'll get those. They are gonna cost me $19.99+ $5 import fees to Belgium each (1m). Still cheaper than if I'd buy the 60 and 30cm cablemod ones twice.

Thanks for the detailed reply. Where did you buy the magnetic ones(phanteks' store, I assume?)? Or do they all come that way now? The widebeam rgb's from cablemod aren't rgbw either, so they should be similar quality. You can get an Asus aura compatible rgb adapter from phanteks on amazon for $7.23 (free shipping).

http://www.phanteks.com/PH-F140SP.html They're very low noise and have pretty decent airflow. You can pmw control them via the fan hub if you hook it up to your motherboard.

I'm gonna buy one extra stock fan and add it to the front. It's also nice that you can connect the fan hub to your motherboard to control them via pmw. That should give me plenty of airflow.

I assume only the Phanteks Led strips are compatible with the built in rgb led connectors? Also how many are built in? I've read the adhesive on the strips sucks so I'd rather use CableMod rgb magnetic LED strips. (I'm also gonna buy the rgb adapter to sync the case LED's with my Asus motherboard (don't think NZXT hue+ is compatible with that). Also how's the quality of the RGB led lights itself? I assume it's not RGBW, seeing the led's are having trouble with the whites.

Could have gotten the 5820k, since you're overclocking. You'd have achieved a higher overclock and thus better performance. But 4.3 GHz isn't a bad overclock though.

Wowa, that would have definitely made it not worth to get the 6800k.

Good to see you went for a 5820k instead of the new broadwell-e 6800k. If you overclock the 5820k, you can get more performance out of it than a 6800k overclocked.

I assume you'll be overclocking. The 5820k has much better overclocking capabilities, so get that one. (I was about to get the 6800k until I saw it still got outperformed when overclocked by the 5820k)

I was wondering if you have tested the difference in GPU temps by moving the bottom intake fan in the front to the bottom. Though I doubt it'll differ much, since the airflow in the define S is simply amazing. All that open space is really beneficial. Adding 1 more intake at the bottom without adding one more exhaust fan would probably have a negative effect effect(too much stagnant air). Edit: You could also flip the PSU so it takes cool air through the bottom of the case and isolate it from the rest of the system.

Oh that sounds very promising. And if it goes away when you move your head, it is IPS glow, which is totally normal. Congratulations on a perfect panel! I'm going to pick one up as well.

Just wondering if you have any QC issues like backlight bleeding, uniformity issues,... with your Asus PG279Q monitor. Thanks in advance.

The site that reported it, admitted to over-tightening the screws with an electric screwdriver. Also if you're using a heavy cooler and want to ship/move your build around a lot, I'd advise taking it off. As long as you're properly mounting it and not moving it around/dropping it. You should totally be fine.

Thank you for your response. I'm probably going to stick with the Dark Rock Pro 3 for my upcoming build. According to your results, it performs extremely well and silent, which is the main reason I decided to go with this cooler for my build. I'm aiming to get a 4.7Ghz OC, but 4.6GHz is good enough imo. Have you tried pushing your OC to 4.7? There have been many people reporting to have succesfully OCed their i7 6700k to 4.7GHz at around 1.35V. Ofcourse not everyone's CPU will be able to, but it's worth a try imo. I wouldn't up the voltage to more than 1.375V for everyday use though.

Should have gone with a 980 ti or even 980 ti in sli.

So I am planning on using an i7 6700k with a dark rock pro 3 as well. After reading about the skylake cpu bending issue, I started wondering if I should use a lightweight AIO watercooler for my cpu instead of the fairly heavy dark rock pro 3. Have you experienced any issues?
