Over all very good.

Thanks a lot for your replay and ideas. I didnt hide the SSD/HDD wires on purpose cause of the sleeving on the power cable. Otherwise I would have hidden them.

I write down the other 2 ideas, I think my rig would look even better with them smile.gif

Advise take the ssd in the HDD and put it in the ODD bay or somewhere else. No point in losing airflow for one SSD.

I'm going to be putting 2x WD Red 3TB at the bottom also.

I would put all three (1 ssd+3 hdd) in the ODD, but I would rather them be cooled properly.

This is so much cleaner than my first PC build, but in fairness to myself such nice cases did not exist when I got started. Nevertheless I still couldn't have managed something that nice on my first go.

Nice work! thumb.gif

I bought parts for my build that include a Core 3000 and a NZXT havik 140. I should've looked at the specs of the case before buying it, but anyway the case specs state that the max CPU cooler it can accommodate is 160mm but my the Havik 140 has a height of 166mm. Would I beable to get away with the 6mm diff? Or should I return it for something bigger?

I haven't opened anything up yet and don't want to find out when installing the parts that I can't fit the cooler or force it to fit and damage something.


update : Was a good looking case inside out, but couldn't wait for a response, so I traded it in for CM 690 iii

Hi All.
I'm about to buy the Mini R2 but I need to figure out something first.

I like the above acrylic color (or lack of color), looks transparent.

I really don't like the smoke window.I love the white fans style and smoke changes that.

Is it possible to change the smoked acrylic to a total transparent acrylic or glass (I did that already with 3mm glass in other case!) without complex mod?
I don't have tools to cut the panel or make complex changes in side panel.

Should be a strength forward change.

If the change is complex, I will go with Corsair 350D with window.

Can someone help?

The case i bought had smoked window..Led lights helped alot and im really happy the way it turned out...not to dark and not to bright..although i dont know if your case comes with tinted or clear side panel window..You might have to contact Fractal and get more details...
