It should be fine adding the additional fan on the splitter

Can i ask where you ordered your mini from?. Ive been holdng out for a good deal on a Arc mini but yet to see any. The define is always on offer.
Regarding your HDrive question. That mount is designed for SSD i wouldnt mount normal Hdd their due to heat.

Do the fans on the top of your case push air out? Just curious. Nice rig overall, I like it.

I also like how clean valk's rig is. good job on that as well. everyone's rig here is so clean

Yeah it pushes air out. My temps in the case are good since it has great air flow. Couldn't be happier. =) sorry for late reply, and thanks for the socks comment lmao.

I ordered mine from Estonia, got the windowed version about 66 euros.
Answer to the hdd mount, i´m gonna use ssd + 2,5" hdd, wanted to mount both behine motherboard tray to get nice stealthy look. If it is not reccommended ( 2,5" hdd) i am probably switch it out and use ordinary 3,5 hdd.

Hi guys,
I'm building a new PC and want to use the Fractal Design R4 in combination with the ASUS ROG Rampage IV Black Edition. I think I saw posts that it would fit but would it fit with the two HDD cages too? (I only saw pictures without them).

Recently i'm a fan of Define XL R2 smile.gif
post #10787 of 16061
I would use the Define XL R2 if the MB doesn't fit in the R4 too. But if it would fit, I would prefer the smaller option. But I'm not sure if it would fit rolleyes.gif

I have seen multiple builds with E-ATX boards in a an R4 like this one:

I would imagine you can get a RIVB in the case. The biggest thing is the board partially covering up the grommets for cable routing so you gotta get a little bit creative if you want to keep all of your cables hidden.

I have seen this build too. The cablemanagement looks uncomplicated. Is the RIVB bigger than the Maximus V Formula? I can't find the dimesnions at asus.com
