Fractal Design Arc Mini is a liquid cooler's dream... - Page 2

Harlen: Your mini was one of my original inspirations for this build. I plan to through another 120 rad next month. The screw holes on the rad matched up although I had to take a circular saw dremel attachemtn to that crossbar in the front.

Ah well that's nice to hear, but as I said I very blatantly copied Scorpion49 smile.gif

Nice to know that rad will fit. Yeah no biggie modding the front panel. I think the XSPC would line up if the outlets were at the bottom, but that takes up essential real estate. Any plans to go crossfire?

No plans to go crossfire on this board both pcie x8 and would render a bandwidth cap. I will wait until tax returns next year and may go crossfire/sli however I only play TF2/COD/ and CS. I just sold a rig for a small profit with 2 x 580 classifieds and it really didn't offer anything extra on top of what I have now... 2600k and 7970.

All the reviews i've seen say 8x makes no noticeable difference.

Hey, I found out what res and pump you were using, I was just wondering, how did you mount it? With velcro, a spcial mount, etc?
