However, if you're referring to the Arc I can't make that call sorry. I'd assume that Fractal would make their cases in mostly the same manner? Can anyone else confirm?

I was wondering specifically on the Arc XL but like you saw it is probably the same throughout their cases. How much room is there behind the mobo for cables?

Im building on Define R4 but seems like the PCIe cards are not matching with the case as it should, like if I try to screw the cards, the back of the card lifts some, on the GPU don't seem to create a problem because the PCIe 16x has a lock so the gpu kinda pulls a little bit the mobo, but on my omega eclaro there if I screw it the back goes up a little bit and this creates static noise on my speakers, if I unscrew it and push it so the card fits in line with the PCIe x1 then the bracket is like couple of mm out from the screw, not allowing me to secure it, if I do again the pcie card lifts some and the problem comes back.

I read a long time ago there were some user that reported like the Fractal didn't align correctly the PCIe or maybe was the mounting screwed behind the motherboard. Here is a very bad drawing of my problem, probably is not as bad as I make it to be, but it gets the idea.



I still have ARC MIDI R2 that im going to test tomorrow, hopping this one doesn't have this issue, but since they are so alike.... idk. Maybe some owner has dealth with this issue before or knows what to do.

Thanks again for any info,
Sorry for quoting you so many months later I have the same exact problem with my Midi R1. Did you ever find out what was wrong? Or if it happened with the Midi R2 too? I honestly thought to myself what in the world is going on.. I shifted my mobo forward and back but still it doesn't fit in perfectly. I'm already out of warranty on the case, maybe I gotta save up for a R4 or Midi R2 if they go on sale.

Do the ODD bays need to be removed to fit a 360mm rad in the top of the Arc XL?

I don't remember the exact number, and I'm not around my case at the moment, but there is plenty of room behind mobo for cabling.

No. but you won't be able to use them for something as big as an optical drive. something like a fan controller would still fit though.

I'm going with a 60mm thick 280mm instead of a 360 just to keep my options open for the ODD bays. well...as soon as frozen CPU gets them back in stock...

There isn't enough clearance for 60mm top rad.

huh. I completely misread that it would. I thought with the offset that it would fit. I'm glad you told me that., you just saved me some money and/or hassle. thanks.

Now I have to completely rethink what I'm going to do.

and thanks for the link.

I'm considering building an HTPC and I'm looking at the Node 605. Anyone have a setup using this or can offer a recommendation for it?
