For the Arc Midi, does anyone know if it is possible to fit a thick 120mm rad (or even a thin one) between the PSU, assuming standard 160mm length PSU (e.g. AX850), and the bottom HDD cage? The bottom fan mount can hold a 140mm, so I'm thinking it may be possible.

I couldn't tell you off the top of my head.

I'd recommend just sending an e-mail to Fractal Designs and asking! I had a similar question about things fitting in the Define Mini and I just e-mailed them and they replied same day with an answer.

Probably not the quick help you were looking for, but it's all I got! thumb.gif

Depends on the length of PSU and the angular separation between saturn and mars IIRC.

hi guys, need some help with my gaming rig here smile.gif

just got a define mini, asus gene-z, I5 2500K @ 4.5Ghz and gigabyte gtx580 soc. i've got noctua d14 on hands now but i realized that i have to put the gtx580 in the second slot. even if i rotate the d14 (place it vertically), i've only got really really close gap between the d14 and the gtx580 backplate. plus i don't really like the d14 to blow warm air to the backplate and i can't use the sidepanel fan to mad.gif

so i need something that smaller but sufficient to cool my oc'ed I5, 24/7. some friends recommends h80, but to be honest i just prefer old school air cooler rolleyes.gif, any suggestion guys?

p.s : will post pics as soon as i get a camera biggrin.gif

The D14 rocks....but the clips pretty much touch most GPUs on mATX boards...and if you don't have a backplate, you end up having to find an insulator. Noctua actually recommends electrical tape. Yeah, no thanks. That wasn't for me..especially since there are many other decent coolers that are more than adequate for a moderate overclock.

The Define Mini has very limited headspace for a tower-style cooler given the acoustic foam on the left side. Fractal recently changed the advertised supported cooler height from 165mm (the Arc Mini's value) to 160mm to reflect that reduced clearance. That said, folks with coolers in the high 150s (like my Evo 212 at 159mm tall) have stated that the tips of the heatpipes still touch (and leave an impression in) the foam. Thus, 160 mm is absolute max.

Frankly, I think the 212 Plus and EVO are great "bang for your buck" coolers. Noctua also makes a range of well-reviewed smaller coolers.

It will fit.
