Cooling

Anidees quote 60mm total clearance in the roof for radiators, and we'd say that's pretty accurate.  Certainly our 240mm XSPC rad fitted up there just fine with a couple of 25mm thick fans, so the average AIO should be no problem at all.  Should you wish to though you can actually put a 280mm or even a 360mm radiator up here, up to a maximum length of 404mm, although doing so will preclude the top 140mm fan in the front of the case.

If you're not looking at a water cooling rig then take comfort in the cases ability to home either 3x120mm or 3x140mm fans up in the roof.  We think the fact that it does this without looking like an abomination on the exterior is a remarkable feat of design, which is, we suspect made possible by the absence of the drive cages from the front of the case.

But wait....Not only can you get a 360 or 280 in the roof, you can also get either one in the front.  Seriously, you can.  And the space available isn't too limited either as Anidees quote a total of 63mm of clearance for fans and rads.  Being as the fans are already the other side of the manifold, this translates to 38mm of space inside the case for rads.

There are though a couple of cautions which Anidess have factored into their sums.  The first of these is the beveled area of the motherboard back plate which blends into the cable cover plate, and the second is the distance to the PSU false floor.  We wouldn't want either of these putting you off putting a rad in the front, they just need to be factored in.

Did the Anidees crew grab someone from Fractal?
The thing looks awesome and that 3x140 support is wonderful, but it does bear a bit of a resemblance...
Now to get some 90 degree adapters for 24 pin, 4/8 pin and USB 3.0 to allow that cable cover to really do it's job!Quote

Does look a lot like the Define S with some nice little additions. Still I do hope that this will be available in AUS.Quote
