I've probably built around 8 rigs using the Arc Midi R2 and they've all been fine. Check the tabs on the side panel to see if any are bent.

tabs on side panel are ok all look same, same situation with two cases so this can't be problem with one faulty case, but production faulty series I think.
I want to swap my parts from Antec 1200 to this case, but now I'm little dissapointed with FD quality.
Also this case are not available anymore in Poland shops, this one I bought from german shop and I see also they do not have this case anymore mad.gif even it I want to replace RMA it now

Maybe Fractal stop to produce this model ?

Yeah that sucks. I doubt they've stopped producing them maybe they have stopped retailers from selling because of this issue and they're sorting it out.

Hmm maybe smile.gif but I don't hear many complains about that problem. Now It's not available in all internet shops in Poland, also in this German shop where I bought my they don't have it anymore and don't know when will be availabe if it will. Also check for example newegg only in USA is available all other countries unavailable.

Here is similar problem with problem open side panel as my - http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/55614-cannot-open-side-panel-on-the-fractal-define-r4/

By the way, I will also ask, which fan do you recomended for this Arc Midi R2, I want to replace orginal fans for now only front intake fans, I thinking between Noctua NF-A14 FLX and NF-A14 PWM.
I want to connect them to motherboard Asus P8P67 Deluxe, but I'm not sure does this motherboard can control fans by voltage, I heard somewhere dosen't support voltage control so maybe better will be PWM version.

Does is possible to use two Noctua L.N.A adapters first to reduce A14 PWM model to 1200RPM, and second U.L.N.A adapter to reduce RPM to 950RPM if I will want to use this fan to use in 3pin header in motherboard ?

Seems to me the tabs are just bent, it happens every once and a while. it is a VERY easy fix. make sure you also check the front of the side panel.

Its an average day. HDD is sitting around 34 c thats with one of the fractal fans blowing onto it.. I reckon it would probably hit 40+ if I put it in the optical slot without a fan on it. Would that be too hot?

Nah you'll be completly fine. smile.gif
I mean you don't wanna pass that 60C+ mark but I'm sure you won't be close hitting that number even without a fan so go for the adapter thumb.gif
You won't notice any big difference on the hard drive without a fan anyway. We talk about 2-3C.

Exactcly you have right, this problem is cause by this two middle small tabs on side panel, this tabs stand out not enough, I fixed them exactly by adjusting them up by screwdriver a little bit and now opening fine. But I'm little worry now because on case where panel moves I have little scratches in paint cause by this hard opening frown.gif hate any scratches mad.gif

WOuld it be a bad idea to remove my HDD tray and then have the HDD resting on the ground where the tray used to be? Or does it need to be secured there somehow?

I have my hdd mounted to the slide in portion and then rested on the ground where the tray used to be, so the rubber grommets absorb any vibration and I haven't had a single problem. Just be careful if you move the case around.

Pretty much what I've done except I used a couple small strips of this as well :
