I'd like to take a look but the photos are too small. I think you uploaded the thumbnails.

I got my Arc MIdi R2 about 2 weeks ago and have made the leap to it just the other day. I did end up murdering the my motherboard in the process, though. I was trying to "fix" the PWM wire that connects the Rheosmart 3 to the mobo CPU header. Well, apparently I crossed two wires, because I literally saw smoke coming out of the top of the machine.. very pretty, whispy white swirls of smoke, and I was like ***!! I consider myself very fortunate to only have lost the motherboard. So thank goodness for Newegg... the next day I picked up the upgrade to my old board, the M5A97 R2 (not the LE which I hear is not so good).

Here are the contents:
(of course) Fractal Design Arc Midi R2
Mobo Asus M5A97 R2.0
Powercolor 7850 2GB
XSPC Acrylic Res Top on a bmaverick DDC --- sidebar: has anyone done any of those upgrades, like the PWM one at DIYINHK?

XSPC EX240 with GT 2150's P/P
XSPC Raystorm AMD
Durelene 7/16"
Distilled, Killcoil and 5 drops of Mayhems.

Anyway, I wanted to get back online, so just decided for now to put my drives in the bottom cage, but it's a PITA, especially since my rad is also in front. In the next month or so I'll get that drive bracket/back wall thingy put together so I can have the pump at the lowest point where it should be. But this case was a breeze for cable management. I need to figure out my fan situation, too. I've got all 3 Fractal's 1 rear, and 2 top, exhaust, and put my 2 GT 2150's in Push Pull on the top 1/2 of the rad, and bought a yucky Shark Green Monster or whatever it's called, on the bottom. Temps are actually outstanding. Maybe I'll get two of the SP120 Silent High Static Pressure's for the bottom half... I like idea of having all my rad fans being PWM and these sound great, perfect low speed but effective for my EX240. The rad fans I'd like to have on an auto fan control like speedfan or even fanXpert... Oh yeah, forgot to mention... in the process of making Mama-Mobo "fall down go boom" I alsjo managed to deal a death blow to the proud and reliable Rheosmart 3. Double chipset homicide. So if I get extremely ambitious, maybe I'll try building my own following one of the many fan control circuits out there. Sounds like a great idea, right? Maybe not...

I really like the Logisys White Sunlight Sticks, they fill the case with enough light, actually almost *too much* light in places, like I haven't figured out how to hide the tacky glow seeping out from the top of the case...I want to add some UV light, too, to show off the mayhem dyed-liquid. I bought one flimsy strip of 3528 and thought I could cut them up and placed around the tubing, it would be enough... but it's clearly not. I found where to get two of the Sunlight Sticks in UV, (pretty cheap, too, if anyone's interested -- and they don't overcharge for shipping, either!) ... now I can be sure the Sunlight Sticks are bright, but are they worthwhile for the purpose of providing UV? If not that great, my other idea was to get some super bright 5050's either on a strip or I'd solder them into a clear tube, and then put some diffusing material on the top half of the tube, to get more of the general glow than a focused beam. Then maybe I'll put the white & the UV sticks on separate switches and enjoy let them fight it out as I finagle them to my hearts desire.



I've got to do some more cable management, and need to cut the huge curve of tubing from the pump to the rad... it'll all get sorted when the drives move out of the way.

I used to have a real frisky cat like that, too... If you like the case, you could just unplug the Power SW and use the Reset button for your Power... that'd make it much harder for Mister Kitty to ruin your day like that.

I'm kittyless but was forced to do that because my original AND replacement power switches were broken. Fail. rolleyes.gif Didn't care to ask for a 3rd because the 2nd took 2 weeks to come. frown.gif

Hm, I hadn't thought about that. I will think about doing that later. Right now I changed the window settings for what the power button does. Seems to have worked so far. I'm still thinking about getting a new case for taking the plunge into liquid cooling.

Hey Guys,

I just got some new parts in my MidiR2, including a top-mounted Corsair H50.

The problem is that the top case filter won't sit flush now that the radiator's screws are under it (see pic below).

Have any of you with top-mounted radiators found screws that sit flush and don't cause the case to bulge?

Thanks

some proper pics of my node!



it's only a htpc/server, so nothing amazing, but it's still rather decent even for modern games. got a 840 evo coming in about a week, and after that i'll add my storage drives smile.gif just have to figure out os/software...

Yes, I have an H100i and had the same problem. I think what was happening is the washers for the screws up top stick out just enough to conflict with the frame around the top filter and top mesh. I fixed it by putting my fans in pull, and not using the washers, or pushing the bowing area down as you put the top pack on so it goes into the clips. It could take a few tries to do that though, and be careful, would not want to crack it or anything.
