Beautiful setup. Did you put a mirror on the bottom? I hate people like you who make me regret going with a white R4. wink.gif

Random thought, something,about my arc mini has me wanting,nothing but a Fractal design case for future,builds Only exception is the elite 110, only if I need to import it, if,I,get it after I move out of this country, I'd most likely grab a Node 304

No need for an extra rear exhaust, i rather have a bit of an air compression inside the case; more going in then out. An extra intake in the bottom should do quite fine, although i don't see a special reason for it since nothing gets above 64C under full load in my case wink.gif Noisy gpu? sure stick a fan underneath it! wink.gif

Okay, that leads me to think maybe putting a fan as intake on the rear, just a little more airflow but w/e, I'd need one of those magnetic grill cover things though. Or, if I had a fan at the bottom and had air exhausting from the back, that would still have positive pressure, correct?

I rather see the rear all closed up, for efficiency reasons the air must go from bottom to top! (one direction) Besides on the bottom there's already a filter, why not putting one intake there?

This is what I mean.

Stock FD fans at least in 2014 are 14cm and they suck, but not air that is. The el-cheapo Gelid Silent 14s are sort of better and quieter. The FD fans tend to make clicky noise when spinning faster. I don't want to spend money on fans since all the fans often run around 500rpm anyway and at that level expensive or cheap fan, they all sound the same and push around the same air. Rear fan actually goes to minimum of 400rpm. On load/games the fans ramp up to 600rpm since CPU goes 60C. So someone here asked about Noctuas etc. well it depends on what you like and your pocket. I personally think these kind of fans are good but overpriced. Why buy one Noctua fan when I can buy 4 almost as good fans instead? The Gelid Silent 14s cost me $5/piece, Noctuas cost over $20/piece.
