post #1321 of 16053
Hey everybody,

I'm thinking of getting a Fractal Arc and removing the HDD cages, and storing my hard drives in the two 5.25 bays. I was looking around for options and saw this,

http://www.amazon.com/EverCool-Dual-Drive-Triple-Cooling/dp/B0032UUGF4/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1327949211&sr=8-10

Was wondering if anybody had any experience with this in any case, let alone a Fractal?

It would be worth it I think to mount a 25mm fan on the outside of the back of the case because it is not visible. Or at the very least cut the fan grill to allow a little more air through.

its the 2000rpm one and its doing great. i just wanted to make sure i didn't have any dead air spots hanging out around the rad. picks coming up next.

Honorable XL owners I need your help on this! Can the last two lower fan slots on the front side panel provide proper space for the installation of a Noctua PF-P12? Is the space too big for a 120mm fan?

If yes I should go for a 140mm fan, probably a Noctua PF-14, Xigmatek XAF, Akasa Apache or Thermalright TY-140. Which one would you recommend for a super silent operation? biggrin.gif

It only supports 140 mm fans, both clips and screw holes are for 140 mm.

TY-140s are out then... they have the same hole centres as 120mm fans...

Anyone here with a Define Mini have a hell of a time getting their back panel on with all the cables routed behind the tray?

I just did my case swap last night and am going to need to do some extensive clamping and zip-tieing to hopefully get this thing buttoned up.
Almost seems like there's not enough room for the 24-pin alone back there...

Few pics of my midi. My first build, I'm kind of a noob redface.gif

Cable management looks messy, but with the side panel on it's fine ... biggrin.gif
Hope to find some spare time and get it done a bit better.

BTW, I find the HX750 cables very stiff, bit of a pain to route properly.
And the Sentry mesh seems to be made for the Arc cases, it just blends in perfectly.

MaX.
