Thanks for your reply.

I will give the Mini R2 a chance.
I already have a really bright white leds stripe (led 5050) so I will be able to put a lot of light inside.

The fact is 350D is 27% more expensive for me and I don't think the clear windows justifies that.

Asus Sabertooth x58
I7 920 @ 4.00 Ghz
3x2gb GeiL Value 6 GB kit
3x2gb Corsair TR3X6G1600C8D G
Sapphire Dual-X R9 270X

1x Kingston SSD Now 128GB
2x Seagate 1.5TB 3Gb/s
1x Seagate 2.0TB 6Gb/s
Plextor DVD/RW
Green or Red led. Depends on the angle of the transmitter.
4x Fractal Design Silent Series R2 140mm

I also need to get me a small Philips-head to remove the upper plastic hdd case slider.

Just finished my first custom PC, sort of. I still need a cpu cooler, more hard drives and a ssd.

Specs:

Fractal Design Arc mini R2
Asus Gryphon z77 motherboard
Intel Haswell i5 4670k
(1) Corsair Vengeance 8gb
Asus gtx660 SC
(1) Toshiba 2tb HDD
(4) Fractal Design R2 fans = (1) 140mm (3) 120mm
OCZ ZT 550W modular
SilverStone L.E.D. strip (white)








*Shoddy cable organization

Simple build but it does the job extremely well, while being pretty silent too.

What you guys think about my front grill?..
post #11188 of 16132
Hello all, first post on the forums and just a simple question out there for those who have watercooled their Fractal Arc Mini R2s.

I can see alot of you have dual 240mm rads and some have even taken the ODD cage out to stick a whopping big 360mm in there but my questions is this.

How liberal is the 275mm max length on the front radiator as specified by Fractal?

I want to fit one in there but all the ones I'm finding are 278 / 280 + mm

What rad are you guys running that fits, recommendations are most welcome and I'm looking at 45 or 60mm thick rads

Same question goes for the top rad, what length can I used before I start getting into trouble with the ODD cage?

AS I'd prefer to keep it / maybe put my pump / res in there


I know this question could probably be asked in the W/C area of the forums but I was hoping to catch the attention of Fractal Arc Mini R2 owners by posting it here.

If you stick to the fan mounts there which is either 120mm's or 140mm's then just mount a rad that matches the fan sizes and you wont have any issues with it not fitting and needing to remove the ODD Cage.

So for example if there are two 140mm fan slots on the top and two 140mm slots in the front, you got space for two 280mm rads I would assume and then you can just screw it on with the fans smile.gif

You would assume, but thats most likely not the case as it says Max rad length of 275mm. You have to take into account the fittings, end tank and frame of the rad. Hence asking the question prior to buying as all 2x120rads arn't the same. If you have an ARC Mini R2 I sure would love some measurements.
