I know it doesnt look great compared to others but heres my Arc mini r2:






I forgot to take a picture of the cable management behind, silly me tongue.gif

Looks like you are not using an optical drive. Pull the HD bay and mount your HDs in the optical bay and then add a second front intake.

For me I do not use any top fans I fill the front and bottom with intakes and then have a single exhaust in the rear for my AiO.

I'm thinking of doing that myself, but where would I mount my hard drive? Also, would removing the rings improve airflow?

Ssd on velcro tape behind the motherboard, HDD in the spare 5.25 spot. Some people buy fancy adapters to do it, I just left it in the tray and velcro taped it to the bottom.

If you cant fit it there just leave it on the floor of the case behind the fans in the tray, secure it with..... Guess what smile.gif. My HDD in the 5.25 bay never gets hotter then 32c up top, well within safe temps doesnt need direct airflow at all. thumb.gif

Thanks for the feedback Mopar thumb.gif I actually use 2 fans on the front, the black one is a Tt one that came with my previous Tt case, i think the model is Pure 12 or something




About the Hdds, i think i can add one on the lower OD bay and put the second one on the floor, after removing the lower cage, you think double sided tape will work or i need to get some velcro for that? Thanks smile.gif

This is the cable management picture i forgot to add on my first post:

Hi,

does anyone know the distance of the feet of the Define R5? I'll put the case on a shelf that is narrower than the case lenght so I'm looking for this info.

Thanks

HDD:
1) suspend it in the case
2) suspend it in 5.25 bay
3) velcro/3M it to the bottom
4) velcro/3M it to the 5.25 bay

SSD: just put it anywhere with velcro/3M.

Find a picture of the bottom and measure it from it. Simple.
Plus even if they are too far apart wouldn't stop me to get the case and fix that later. Either drill new holes for feet or put a piece of wood/rubber beneath as "feet" or get a piece of wood that is big enough.
Why put a case on something tiny is weird, especially putting case on wood boxes/ table etc. is like a boom box for any noise. Shelf that better be some badass shelf that can hold 15-20kg.
