Anyone been able to fit a HD5970 in a ARC midi? by my measurements, it should just fit by a few mm tongue.gif
post #2352 of 11073
thinking about adding a second radiator to my Arc Mini, anyone know (or have a pic) of a 120mm rad at the bottom between the PSU and HDD cages?

Unsure if you leave the drive bays in. If you remove the top drive bay (thumb screws), then it will have no issue.

As with the Arc Midi, a 120mm rad should be fine in the bottom as long as you are using a "short" PSU.

I wrote up a review of the Define R3 and thought I would share it with the community:

http://f3ature.com/index.php?section=article&articleid=56

Glad to hear your thoughts or anything I might have missed/forgot to mention.

Great case, and was very happy to use it for a client of mine. I built a very modest file server to house their OCR'd documents on and it was a perfect fit for the deployment.

So I joined this site pretty much because of this thread. Hopefully I'm qualified to join the club. biggrin.gif

This was my first ever computer build. I'm kind of apprehensive about the amount of air that these case fans (prolimatech BV 14) are projecting. Since I've never built a computer, I was expecting more air to project forward from the case fans. I have to put my hand right in front of the fans to feel anything coming from them. Even then, it only feels that air is blowing from the outside edges of the fan blades. Is that normal? I was expecting to at least be able to feel something from four or so inches in front of the fans.

I'm sure they're oriented the right way and my three front fans are at full RPM since they are direct to my PSU.

Also, am I employing positive pressure if I have three intake (two front/ one bottom) and three exhaust (one back/ two top) on my rig? I was reading on Tom's hardware about positive pressure and it said that having mesh will not allow it to work and I thought that counterproductive for my case since it was made with so much mesh.

Any recommendations would be awesome and sorry if these are noob questions. I'm still in the process of learning but it's fun.

Not quiet positive pressure/positive flow. Check out the Positive Airflow cooling item in my sig for more info and help in this area. thumb.gif Looks good so far!

So today I changed my fan setup to three of the prolimatech bv 14's to intake (two front/ one top nearest front) and blocked the other top intakes not used. I have one of the Noctua 140's as exhaust. Is this proper for positive air pressure? I read some of the above recommended thread about positive pressure and it led me to this setup.
