is H105 compatible with Define r5 case?


Recommended Posts

It is most likely a clearance issue at the top causing the compatibility error.


Top – 420, 360, 280, 240, 140 and 120 mm radiators. (A thickness limitation of 55mm for both radiator + fan applies on 420, 280 and 140 mm radiators) (420 and 360 mm radiators require removal of the ODD bay)

Hydro H105

Radiator dimensions: 272.5mm x 120mm x 38mm

Fan dimensions: 120mm x 120mm x 25mm


Thickness totals to 63mm. While Fractal does not say 240mm for the 55mm limit, you still need to consider the possibility of the motherboard's heatsink as well which may too prevent the H105 with fans from fitting properly. You may be able to mount the radiator elsewhere e.g. http://www.pcper.com/reviews/Cases-and-Cooling/Fractal-Design-Define-R5-Silent-Mid-Tower-Enclosure-Review/Closer-Look-and
