    Re: Fractal Design Define Nano S

    Looks to be a certain lack of tidiness in the cabling around the back (just like my builds!)

    This is a nice design but I would make a couple of changes. I would make it marginally wider to allow for 180mm fans and slightly taller to allow for a couple of fans up top but I think it could be modded to allow for that in any event.

    My ideal case for m-itx watercooling would have cool air fans forcing air over top of motherboard (over hot vrms and memory) so I would prefer to invert motherboard - I guess this could be done with this case

    There's enough radiator spaces for a decent setup using pre-filled liquid cooling loops - a 240mm radiator in the roof for the CPU and a 280mm liquid cpu cooler attached to the GPU with a bracket should give great cooling and be dead simple to put together

    Re: Fractal Design Define Nano S

    Anyone on here built with one of these?

    I'm looking at sticking an x570 board, 3xxx or 5xxx series CPU and an RTX 3060Ti or RTX3080 Founders in there.
    Its been a looooong time since I have looked at AIO cooling and never water, but thinking a downsize and upgrade is overdue and given this has a window I want a bit of something to look at and it be tidy..


    No RGB need apply

    Anyone?
    Not sure if something this small would cope with the 5800x and a 3080FE card, customer liquid cooling would probably be the way to go...

    I di like Fractal but bot I have got used to the Corsair with the split case where I can put my PSU and cables.

    Re: Fractal Design Define Nano S

    I've built 2 PC's for people using COrsair stuff of late, and while the quality is good, the support is, well, shyte, that's enough to put me off and given how my interaction was with Fractal, I bought a used Node304 that had a load of screws missing when I shrunk my home server from a Node 804, I emailed them as I couldn't find a screw set on the website or anywhere else, they sent me out a full set of screws/ties etc for the 304, FOC, even though I said I had no issues paying for them, so, they'll be getting my money when I re-case my machine.

    Not going to argue about their service that's for sure. I had a PSU that gave up on me and wow what a struggle to get hold of them I gave up in the end. But I love their cases unfortuantely.
