i have really loud headphones. nah i control them with a Lamptron FC-2 which handels them pretty well. but you can full force 5000rpm on tap. which is good for overclocking.

I have a quick question for anybody with the Fractal Arc, I was planning on getting one, putting my 2 HDD's in the 5.25 bays up out of the way, removing both of the cages (one screwed in, one riveted?) and possibly building a little frame to hold up a spare NZXT 200m fan I have right in front of where the GPU will be. My question is about the width of the case, the fan is 192mm, will it fit and still be able to close the side panel? I've attached a photo in case that didn't make any sense!

Thanks!

At that place you have about 225 mm of space, if you move a little bit towards back to where the motherboard tray starts then you have 200 mm.

finally got a chance to do one of the projects i've had waiting. i got a used GTX470 back plate from EK used off the forums, and wanted to install it on my air cooled card. after some research and trial and error, i found the screws shipped with the plate are M3 screws, however the air cooler uses M2 screws. i was able to get some M2 x 8mm screws with counter sunk heads (had to buy 50, so if anyone else wants to try this, let me know and i'll cut you a great deal on some screws). this also meant i need new washer to fit the M2 screws, finally found ones that are 0.032" thick (only had to buy 25 of these, again, see earlier if your trying this). i'm really happy with the way this turned out.

i know the pics are a bit blurry (wife left the memory card reader at her school, so i'll get better ones later)
