Nice LED replacement. I used to pull LEDs from old vcr's and DVD players and wire them up using a transistor and recycled wire, but this is nice too.

Maybe there's a reason why we're all attracted to this case eh. Take it from a Canadian Finn lol.. Well my grandmother was from Finland.

Does anyone know the measurements of the thumb screws used to secure the side panels on the Arc Midi R2? I've lost a couple and can't seem to find them and was wondering if I could just buy them from a local hardware store or get replacements from Fractal as a last resort.

I think they're 6/32 thread and about 5mm in length but they have a pointed end. Send Fractal Design an email and see if they can send you some spares.

In the past and probably today as well I know you could buy a custom fancy screws for that that were large and easy to use. No idea about the thread but it's a steep one I think.
I bet you could use any other thumb screw from the case like the ones used for PCI-E could be the same thread wise. The heads are slightly different.

Does anyone else think that R4 still looks better than R5 case? biggrin.gif

I do, I don't like the new moduvents on top of the r5. I also like the drive cage on the r4 more.

For equal price I would take the R5. But I have a moded R4 with all I need, it just takes time to mod it where as on R5 some things are already there.
I'm more worried with how the R5 might look with the sinked in fan grills when fans are installed, must be weird a little and would be better if they provided a snap on air filter that would make it flush when fans are installed. So you would replace the plastic covers, they call fancily moduvents, with air filters.

I would still take a dremel and cut those stupid grills out anyway, bottom and rear for sure since I don't use the other fan positions.

The covers on R5 were a risky move design wise, they seem flimsy and they probably are.
