You're eeeevil.

The cons: HDD bay I would need to mod, less space behind mobo, no 140mm rear exhaust, space constraints in case I decide to get an Archon or what have you, less configurability of the top mounted airflow should decide to use it for an all-out posi-press setup. Pros: Nice pre-installed dampening/front door I can shut when running silent. Slick looking. Side vent sealed up nicely. Cheap.

I don't mind modding the bay but it would be nice not to have to, and even if I cut off the top half it wouldn't have the flexibility of the Midi's modular bay.

Or I can wait for reviews of the Corsair 550d to roll in. But Corsair isn't Swedish. I mean, Swedish computer case. That's just kinda neat.

Just installed my old computer in the case. Sweet installation process. Haven't booed it yet since I'm using the opportunity to slap one some new CPU paste

Anyway, I have a few silent 80mm fans from my old case, how do i mount them? I'm lost here, there is no apparent screw holes in them.
edit: Found out, either with the included screws or with some other scews you have.

Another question, how do I mount power to the fan controller? From where should I take that power?
edit: Ahhh, it's obvious. With the included power adapter.

And a third, what's the best for air pressure? Two fans in, two out? Or one in and 3 out? Thanks folks

Edit; Ok,I'm going for this, but I'm skipping the one at the bottom. That make two in, front and side. And two out, back and top.

Edit, this is the Define R3.

Thanks forums.bf2s.com for the pic

You know I tried this for a short period of time and my disk was making all kinds of racket. Knocking and tapping like you wouldn't believe. I thought the disk was dying. I have it back in the HDD silencer now.

Anyone knows a good hot-swap 3.5" hdd bay top go nicely with the r3 ? I know about the Antec Easy Sata but I'm wondering if there're better ones.

Okay, so I am now officially over the Arc Mini's case fans. They have a "tick" that I find maddening. For now, I have them dialed fairly low using the Fractal fan controller, but what I would really like to do is get thee new 120mm PWM fans and use my Gene-Z to control their RPM precisely...rather than screwing with a knob.
My case runs very cool as is...so I am looking for something that I can run at under 1000 RPM. I may allow the Gene-z to control them dynamically if necessary, so higher RPM under load is fine, but I am striving for nearly silent at idle, which granted, is a challenge with this meshy box.
Anyone have any advice? So far, I am considering the following: I don't care about the cost. I'll pay for silent...but I don't like brown, so Noctua is out. Shoot me. smile.gif
Thanks!

Thanks for the replies folks...but if anyone has actually swapped out fans in a Mini, I'd be grateful to hear your experiences/advice. Thanks.

Yes. If you try to access a drive that doesn't exist Windows will go crazy on you.
