The Arc "Midi" was just deal of the day on Friday for $69 shipped. I was super tempted but broke down and paid double that for my white 500R. I don't regret it one bit, amazing case.

@ samwiches

- Keep in mind, they want people to use them for universal uses. Servers, RAID setups, & constant hot-swapping HD on-the-go kind of people, so they need to be universal.

If you want a good case that fits your needs, build one. smile.gif - I'd really love to see that, or just mod yours to hold only that much. I did!

I just want a spacious design with lots of fan mounts that isn't ugly and doesn't skew, bend or dent too easily. But that always costs so much more money.

Anyone know if they make a clear panel for 300R?
post #1416 of 4611
as of now no. there are some custom do it yourself window kits that you can buy from frozen cpu and performance pc's. im sure other sites have them too if you look hard enough.

The corsair carbide series are so sexy. I have a HAF 932 Advanced but its too large for my tastes. It doesn't have dust filters and the CPU cutout isn't big enough rolleyes.gif

I hope to join you guys soon with a 400r lol thumb.gif

Just ordered 500R, and it's my second time building PC, but first time I built 3 years ago so I don't remember much. Does this case come with manual where to plug those fans and fan controller, etc? wink.gif

The front 2 fans are already plugged in to the controller from the factory. The side fan also gets plugged in but you do that yourself. If I remember correctly the lead that the side fan plugs in to is bundled with the rest of the front panel connectors. It will be obvious which one you need as it isn't a standard connection.
