I asked about a 280, not a 240. I know a 240 fits.

Hi guys, I'm doing a new server build in the Fractal R5 and I'm looking for another 3 drive HDD cage with trays. If anyone has one they aren't using please let me know, I've got a classified up here. Thank you!

You have to take into account that I didn't remove just the dust filters so results could be influenced by the addition of the mesh too (top pannel and front magnetic mesh/filter).
The filters were cleaned and absolutely dust free.
The ambient temp remained between 25.9°C and 26.6°C throughout the entire testing.


Without dust filters:
-HWMonitor: 66° | 64° | 61° | 64°
-RealTemp: 66° | 64° | 61° | 64°
-HWiNFO64: 65° | 64° | 62° | 64°

With dust filters:
-HWMonitor: 71° | 70° | 66° | 70°
-RealTemp: 71° | 70° | 66° | 71°
-HWiNFO64: 70° | 70° | 67° | 71°


Conclusion: the use of the Arc Midi R2's stock Dust Filters increase CPU temperature by 5-7°C.

These results may vary depending on your setup. I have a front 280mm rad in push/pull pulling out into the case through the front dust filter and another 280mm in push pushing the air out through the top dust filter.

This part made me wonder: You have to take into account that I didn't remove just the dust filters so results could be influenced by the addition of the mesh too (top pannel and front magnetic mesh/filter).

Does Fractal Design Arc R2 really have magnetic top panel or magnetic mesh/filter? I even asked Fractal Design about this and they told me that Fractal Design ARC R2 doesn't have other magnet parts than its fans. Can you tell me is this true? I am thinking of buying Arc Midi R2 Solid Side Panel computer case.

Looks awesome. I'm highly considering watercooling my 290X in the future and I'm either considering getting a H240X and using that as my reservoir and pump or putting buying a reservoir and pump and putting it near where yours is.

Quick question, would it be feasible to connect the reservoir and pump to the radiator in the front and have the tubing look nice if I positioned it near where you put yours? I've seen some options on where to put the reservoir in the R5 and I'm not a fan of putting a reservoir on top of a HDD rack in front of the radiator area.

The Fractal Design Define R4 was on sale on Newegg today so I decided to take the plunge. It should be here next week. Really looking forward to transferring my system into the new chassis. I've kind of been underwhelmed by my NZXT Tempest ever since shoving everything in there. Tabs on the top plastic cover broke off when I was putting things together so it's never really been that solid. I will be sure to post pictures once I get everything squared away.

Not sure man, i'm not a fan of the looks of them to begin with so i would be a bit biased.
