Just want to ask this as i can't seem to align the screwholes of the optical bay with the adapter's without having to elevate the adapter.
Not entirely sure what you're asking here, but the inside lips of the adapters should screw into the sides of the HDD.

Not sure if anyone has done a guide on this before. But I decided to changed my power LED light from red to white on my White R4 and while I was doing it I recorded my progress. Here is the guide if any of you R4 owners are interested. smile.gif

Hey on the arc mini r2 can you use fan splitters to connect multiple fans to the one controller (call it 9) or is there not enough power in it

Maximum is 15W so I doubt it'll do 9 fans.

well thanks for the info. I have a fan controller that will work I just like that one and since it's build into the case it's nice.

I wish they'd up the wattage. I'd happily pay extra for a 30W+ built in fan controller.

I am not talking about assembling HDD to the adapter, but when your going to screwdown the hdd (with adapter to it) to the 5.25 bay.

I wanted to ask some questions about...
Fractal Design Define XL R2

I am thinking of building another new server that can hold as many hard drives as possible...
using This Motherboard that has 22 SATA slots...

http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z87%20Extreme11ac/index.us.asp

but for $550....

Fractal Design Define XL R2
i see that it has 8 hard drive bays

maybe use this
http://www.icydock.com/goods.php?id=48
for 5 more hard drives,

and i am thinking if i can attach additional hard drive cages
http://www.fractal-design-shop.de/index.php?a=323 (for 4 more hard drives)
and
http://www.fractal-design-shop.de/index.php?a=388 (for 4 more hard drives)

Total 8+5+4+4=21 hard drives...
(with the Asrock Motherboard with the 22 Sata slots)

I asked Fractal if this is a viable build...
They responded:
"The lower HDD cage will fit, but I haven't tested an additional lower HDD cage in combination with the top HDD cage in a case with the motherboad installed, so I can't say for sure.
Otherwise this looks like a doable solution."

Any suggestions?

Ah, I see. Yes, the adapter+HDD should not touch the bottom of the optical bay. It should sit slightly above the surface so that air can move freely over and under the drive.

Mods are drawing to a close (Finally). Only a few things left to do;
Replace the white acrylic fan mount with black acrylic, and then screw it to the face plate.
Buy a third fan for the fan mount.
Clean up glue spots on the face plate. (On that subject; anyone have any safe ways to remove glue from acrylic? Acetone is out of the question).

Feeling pretty good about the results (From a distance). Up close you notice a few of the botched areas, but they're fine for the greater part. I learned alot on this little modding romp. =)
