I just got black pearl ,define r3,and I am a little disappointed in it,Capabilities are very good,but build quality of the case is not nearly as my antec p182eu,and I had paid for antec 120e and for FD 86e.Everything except build quality is likable on it.Will post pics when I assemble rig.
....with time spending with it,its a decent built case with a lot of options. Not regretting anymore for buying it,I expected too much ,like lian li workmanship.

Does anyone know how to remove one of the front panels on the Core 3000 to be able to put a DVD drive in? I've tried everything but it just won't remove itself! There aren't any instructions either.

Hi all,
I'm almost sold on the Arc Midi (unless the tests of the Bitfenix Raider shows a huge perf/noise gap).

I have one question owners may answer: do you think the Arc Midi with a side fan will allow a Thermalright Archon ? A Silver Arrow ? A Macho ?

Thanks ! MaX.

It should fit just fine. May not be able to use the side fan but the HSF should fit.

Thanks, but my question was with the side fan.
The side fan is one of the advantages of the Arc Midi over the Bitfenix Raider: if it turns out that I can't use it with an Archon, then ...

Personally not going to care about the side fan lol. The case looks waay too good to go without having a window. Soo...... Bye bye side fan, hello Window! biggrin.gif

Here's the draft window shape I made. How does this look?
Just waiting for the U-Channel to arrive and get the acrylic, So I can mount it on the cutout smile.gif
