Nope, cutting all the bays out for a 360 rad in the front.

Hey guys, quick question: is there a clear PERFORMANCE (I'm not talking about aesthetics) difference between the Carbide 500R White and the Fractal Design Arc Midi R2? I'm interested in cooling (building an air cooling system), wire management, component quality, the works. The big thing that's making me want to go with the R2 is that it has dust filters everywhere, as opposed to the 500R that has that large fan opening without the filter. The space I have the PC gets dusty really quick, so that's a concern. I know there are filters available (like Demciflex), but I haven't been able to find a place that ships to my country. Also, I'd like to avoid the added cost of buying aftermarket filters as well.

There's also the issue of the fan controller on the 500R controlling only the 3 included coolers, while on the R2 it can control all coolers. I honestly don't know how much this would impact me, it doesn't seem like I'd need to fiddle with cooler speeds frequently.

In terms of looks, I'm actually in love with the 500R White, it's absolutely perfect for me. I don't care for lights and LEDs, but that can be turned off as well AFAIK.

So, trying to look at things objectively, even if people mention a lot of pluses with the Arc Midi R2, I'm trying to filter out the meaningless ones and only keep the actual important ones in mind (the quality dust filters being one of these)

Any thoughts?

Hey guys,
I'm making my "spare" build in my 200R this month

I was wondering if i can put my bay res pump anywhere else?
As im shoving a 360 in the front and i'll have to cut the drive bay off.

Can i put it on the floor? Is it safe having the pump lower than everything else?

Having your pump below everything else shouldn't matter. You could construct a 5.25" bay in the bottom of the case. Also glad to see I'm not the only one with such an ambitious project as having a 360 in the front of such a small case.

Thought so, thanks. Just needed a heads up.
Yeah I have some spare parts from my first rig. So might aswell do something useful with it.

So, I need the drive cages to finish installing 2x more SSD's and another 2x HDD setup.

Who thinks it's rude/wrong to go to the ugly, beat up display cases at Fry's and grab a couple of drive cages vs. buying them from Corsair and waiting? I'd feel guilty, but I spend so much at Fry's and not having the cages is really bumming me out, I wanted to have a project for today!

As long as you pay for them, no harm.

If you grab and bail... That's called shoplifting display or not.

Fry's will let me buy them as loose parts for cheaper than Corsair. Last thing I want is a ban from my local computer outlet for taking a dollar part.
