the r3 can't, the midi does

You would defiantly have to move the hdd cage. You might be able to reposition the cage a few inches back after you install the rad, there is a lot of space since it's a pretty wide case

I'm not in the least bit worried about HDD cages. That's what a false floor is going to be for. wink.gif

Can't wait for the build log smile.gif. A heads up though, the Arc Midi has a weird way of attaching the 140mm fans on the front bezel, and only 140s can be installed. The mnpctech review of the arc on youtube explains it pretty well. Nothing a bit of modding won't help though.

I cant see why you couldnt pioneerisloud, found this older photo of my R3, in hindsight I dont know why I didnt do it, ended up shoving rads everywhere else, I mounted a 240mm on the top externally. I'm looking for a new case for a new project as well so its a timely read smile.gif

Even though this doesn't have room for a 240mm radiator, according to the post it still achieves reasonable temperatures with reasonable noise.

I figured it may be of interest if you're looking to water cool and have something in a tiny form factor: Silverstone FT03:
