hi guys ive been silently lurking on this thread for a while now, and ive seen some of the best looking rigs. and so finally i got my own fractal design arc mini R2 and would like to mod paint it on white, the problem is, i cant really decide if i would make it completely white or just paint some portions of it. like the front and top panels??

i know this is kind of a personal preference thinggy but any inputs will be much appreciated thanks in advance biggrin.gif

sorry for my MS paint skills XD


looking forward on becoming a member of this wonderful club biggrin.gif

Question: What is the door made of (other than the soundproofing on the inside) on the Define R4 and R2 XL cases?

 

Also, do any of you know if the White color on any of the white cases fade to a yellowish or not?

 

Thanks:)

I checked the R4 in a local store. The door is made of thin plastic and feels very flimsy if you open and close it.

Can anyone confirm if Alphacool UT45/UT60/MONSTA 280mm rad fits in Arc Midi R2 front bay? Worried that the optical bay might be too close, and I don't wish to remove it.

[edit] nvm confirmed it fits here

Can I use a dust filter for every case fan on the R4? The case doesnt come with any filters but I really want to minimize dust a much as possible.

half the case (bottom and front) is filtered, the rest is designed to push air out, so in theory there's no reason to add more filters tongue.gif

Thanks for your response.

 

That's not too good if the door is thin and flimsy = not a good longevity thing and just a matter of time till a crack will appear somewhere on that door and or hinges.

 

I've seen a Corsair 550D (which also has a front door) at a store and it doesn't look too durable at the hinge area though the door seemed okay imho.  I wonder if it's worth even seeking such a case as I do use the optical drives enough to warrant to be concerned about a case front door durability.

I don't find the R4 door flimsy feeling at all. Yeah it's plastic but the sound deadening material backing it gives it a reassuring thickness. Swing action is nice and smooth, the magnet retention means no stress from plastic clips that have to bend all the time. I think the solid steel construction in the rest of the case might make the front door feel flimsier than it is by comparison.
