I had the R4 and the FC5 V2. Had to move the fan controller back so the knobs sat flush with the optical Bay cover.

Can't you just sink it into the case? Simple to do.

I just bought a Mini R2 and so I am planning to do a 360Rad in the top and a 240 Rad in the front, which means i had to take out all the cages. Now the problem is where I should put my 3.5" Drive! Does anyone have a creative Solution for this?
I mean i could just lay it on the bottom, but that is not really slick rolleyes.gif

Specs so far:

Fractal Design Arc Mini R2
ASRock Fatal1ty X99M Killer
FRACTAL DESIGN Newton R3, 800 Watt
Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-2800 16GB (4x4GB) CL16
Intel Core i7 5820K (LGA 2011-v3, 3.30GHz, Unlocked)
SAMSUNG XP941 SSD M.2 SATA, 256GB
Seagate Desktop SSHD - 4 TB

For GPU, I'll probabely go with an EVGA GTX 970 FTW+ ACX 2.0+ or
ZOTAC GTX 970 AMP! Extreme Core Edition but I have to wait for a Waterblock there.

There was a reference to a site where you can buy black drive sleds and expansion covers for the R4... I can no longer find it. Can someone point me where I can buy these?

And they have 4 black drive sleds in stock now. I just spray painted mine black biggrin.gif

But no expansion slot covers? frown.gif

I'd spray paint mine, but I'm fickle - I see wanting to go back to white in the future. Plasti dip would work and is easily reversible, but for the cost and effort involved I'd just as soon buy them black and have the ability to swap.

I figured I could always find white ones biggrin.gif
I think plasti-dip would come off of the tray rails from sliding it in.
Plasti-dip is too thick for the expansion slot covers.

Thanks for the replies , just realized the R5 has a basic 3 fan 3 speed controller .
If i was to use 6 fans can i run a y splitter off each channel , would the single molex going into the controller handle 6 fans.

It might, maybe. I've used four fans there. Fan control has maxinum total wattage 15W but Fractal Design recommends one fan in each header.
