post #10901 of 15938
Sorry for the low resolution image, I just cut it from a photo I already had on my PC. I'm wondering how you can make the USB 3.0 cable look neat on the Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 as I am unable to get it to go within the cable management holes due to that the lead just won't bend. It's probably on a awkward position of my motherboard so I was thinking something like a 90 degree bend would help but I couldn't find anything like that on eBay. Anyway here's a photo of what it currently looks like.. I hope this question made sense.

I think that looks neat enough already. Maybe remove the sticker.

Motherboards with that USB 3.0 orientation are a pain to get through the grommets.

Agreed. This slot needs to be a little bigger. I routed my sata drives through it but had to go from the bottom for one.

I think I used a 3.0 or 3.5mm. I just used one slightly bigger than the hole in the centre of the rivet. This was for an Arc Midi R2, but I don't see why the size would be different.

Hi Guys,

I am a first time owner of a Fractal Design case. Just received the Define XL r2. I use corsair normally. But got a great deal.
Wow case is HUGE. Great materials on first sight. But now I notice somethings and one is a bummer.

The upperleft screwhole in the backplate doesnt align correctly. Cant screw the thumbscrew in.With or without the sideplate.Disspapointing.Didnt expect to make use of the FD customer service so soon.

Other things I noticed.
1) The headphone connector is plastic and not metal. How well isolated are they? Will they be susceptible to noise or interference. Looks cheap.
2)The thumbscrews is not so strong or well buiilt. seems bit softer metal than corsairs.
3)The fit seems a bit off. Corsair fit perfect for example. The alignment of screw holes and backplate. The fan button doesnt seem to move/click cleanly.
4)Door can only open onesided.
5) Case is HUGE. Will normal cables be long enough?

Bit concerned about point 1. And hope its a problem with my case only and can fix teh problem.Pretty pissed if I have to delay the build and return the case.

1) The plastic ring wont affect anything. What will is the wires inside the case are prone to EFI, that is with any case. If you want clean sound, you shouldn't use front jack anyway.
2) Thumb screws are fine and like any other case, there is no issues with them.
3) Fit is good with Fractal cases. Fan controller works well ans slides easy to select voltage.
4) It is a standard door
5) That will vary on your power supply

Corsair is not the be all of cases, most of there case are designed to fit only there own products and no one else. They are not the be all of cases, some of them are just not so good, including there own fans.

Bought a R 3 n.i.b. a couple of months ago ........never knew what to do with it. Finally got bored with my cosmos 2 so after some mad surgery and a new H80i A new day has dawned...still got lots of cable management to do though. Bought a node 304 too

I had issues with thumb screws in my Core 3000 (my server), so he's not the only one. The one that came in the top PCI-E slot stripped completely the first time I tried to put a card in it. It was an absolutely nightmare trying to get the damn thing out.

I know. But I only have experience with Corsair. Fractal Design was so highly rated everywhere...that I expected the same.

The reason why wiring in the front jack is important to me. I connect my headphones in it. And my headphone amp works through the frontjack.

Corsair and antec have quite good shielded wires to the frontjack. So I hope the same with Dractal.

I sent a message to FD customer service. I hope they react quickly with regards to the case and the misaligned screwring. Bad luck i guess.
