But damn that MSI is loud for me (got an Accelero IV on it now, but that's so big it's really getting in the way for other stuff or SLI).

Hmm...I haven't found my fans to be THAT loud even at 100% - but I guess loud is a relative term...what is loud for you may not be loud to me. I haven't needed to run my fans at 100% at any time yet other than for benchmarking though. Overall I find my fans to be fairly quiet.

If you can afford to, I would upsize the SSD to at least a 500GB. Only about $70 more when on sale compared to on sale price of the 250GB.

500GB should allow you to get "most" if not all of your programs and data stored on the an SSD for not a lot of money.

edit: and where are you planning to install those five extra fans?

Does anyone know where to get a larger side window for the Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 w/ Window?

Just thought it'd be cooler to have a larger window... you know, so I can impress the ladies or win the lottery er whatever. rolleyes.gif

If nobody sells this, how hard is it to cut out a big hole and rivet some plexiglas in to make my own?

Perhaps you could ask Bill Owen about this

Rejoining this group. In addition to my 2 year old HTPC in a Node 304, I'm building a X99 setup in a Node 804 now.

I wouldn't know who that is.

I may just take an large sheet of plexiglass and cut off the ends of the metal cover and rivet them to the plexiglass so the entire cover becomes a large window

I just need to find some black rivets...

His window is too small... I like my idea of making the entire side into a window,

I saw that done somewhere and it looks pretty cool... and it doesn't look ghetto

What are your guys' opinions on using be quiet! Silent Wings 2 fans my Kraken x61? They aren't technically SP fans, but they are quiet. Otherwise I will plan to use Fractal HP-14s

Hi, you can measure the side panel and cut a sheet of plexiglass and replace it with it. You also need to measure how thick the plexi should be. Mine is 2mm. Its attached to the case with magnetic strip which is glued to the sheet of plexi. Hope i helped you.
