Just got my Define Mini today! Hopefully will have time to do my case swap etc over the weekend biggrin.gif

Does anyone here run theirs w/o using a top exhaust? I might just leave the sound dampening block in up there.
I'm going to use 4x AP-14s (2x exhaust in P/P on a H60) and 2x up front.

A friend of mine has a very similar setup except his fans are 1200rpm Yates and his cooler is Kühler 620. Temps are great even with 2 evga reference 570's. The P/P rear fans give good exhaust.
edit: sorry not reference, they're "hd" cards that have the single fan on the middle(ish).

Not sure, I've never looked in to them, I like the look of mesh on my 690 II and my Design Core 1000. If I can't find my pre-made 3.5" hole cover that came with my case, I'll be doing the mid that was previously posted.



Spoiler!

Awesome that's good to hear smile.gif
I'll prob still get a blower-style card tho, figure whatever warm air is coming off a non-ref will be going through the radiator otherwise.

Was looking at the previous page and liked ekg84's little project. I guess I'll do that. Just don't really know how I'll do it with an Arc Midi.

That's whats nice about that big azz Fractal Door. Once closed , you don't
see anything and the fans are still controlled at will.

Simplistic , but most importantly.......... functional

Hello guys I was thinking of getting Fractal Design XL and I have one question. Is the rear top 180mm fan removable? If yes is there any sound dampening material in the original packaging so I can cover it? Is there a designated hole like the rest holes of the case, so I can cover it? Thank you! biggrin.gif

Edit: I have a Corsair HX850 PSU and I was wondering, what's the required cable length for this case?
