Are those pics reversed? The P&S pics look quite a bit better. They're a lot sharper and have more vibrant colors. The DSLR pics look washed out and not crisp.

I really like the visible front fan... I just want to keep my filter up front.

i was wondering if i was the only one who didn't care much for the case filters that came with there arc mini? i found them to be very restricting on air flow. has anyone else decided to replace there filters?

several people had removed them completely, this is how mine looks:

i have talk to another owner who did the same mod, but put a higher flow filter on the back of the fans.

I'm thinking about mounting my radiator on the front intake, just need to figure out a way to mount it. Anyone know an easy way to attach it? I'm thinking lots of zipties.

What kind of rad ? This is how I mounted a 120 rad in upper hard drive cage :

I just thought about making my own filters the other day. Great job toyz72. I think you just inspired me to actually do it now.

i have an extra one laying around, and i verified there is enough room for one of THESE on the back of the fan (only $1.95 each too).

Do the fans that come with the case come with the rubber mounts? I was thinking about getting this case to reduce the sound, the fans seem decent.

No, they are hard plastic frames that either snap or screw into place.
