[Official] Fractal Design Case Club - Page 254

post #2531 of 15845
hey folks,
im decommisioning my Corsair 800D fully and moving the camp to the Fractal Design Arc Midi.
the 800D was large, to say but in some aspects was a small area case. due to the mid-plate,
hot swap bays, and stature of the opti-bays. wit h that said, i have an Asus Maximus IV Extreme-Z
(Z68 w/2550k CPU) and was wondering with the ATX boards, this one is 1.0" wider; which
looks to come out almost mid rubber grommet. i'd like to use the MIVE-Z if possible. is this a
headache or doable? then if so, i can move my water-cooling also. will have to re-structure
a lil bit, but it looks like it'll fit (with shoe-horn) 120x3x60mm (i dont use optis). if not, i can
settle on air cooling (NH-D14) and some fanage.

also, i'm having a hard-time with e-tailers to order items for the FDAMidi (front panel, top panel
and side panels). ive asked to pay for they in advance and will wait on stock order shipment,
do you think the FD headquarters in Cali can help? whom do i ask for? i do modify my cases
and like to have a back-up or donor to have for the mods.

input would be greatly appreciated.

BeQuiet fans are great you just can't hear them! but I always used them in mesh cases, I don't know if they are efficient in closed cases like cooler master silencio for example...
The OCZ psu does not bother me cause even in charge, my computer may not exeed 450 Watts wink.gif

How did you end up mounting the be Quiet fans? thumb.gif

several of us have inquired about getting case parts, and to no avail yet. we where told that they will be releasing a windowed side panel, but no date on the. i too wanted to get a back-up side panel for when i cut my window, but i just had to fly without a safety net...

@ Macarule : the bezel has a frame and 2 pins for each fan, so I just clip the fan in those 2 pins and it holds... This is really sufficient, no need to mod it wink.gif

338

Note : this is not my fan I have the other kind of attach from BeQuiet but it works the same!

Sorry if I'm not easy to understand i have a lack of vocabulary, but in one word : you can put any BeQuiet fan in the front of this case without any modification wink.gif

the best interest on parts so far is NCIX, but they hadn't gotten back with me, yet. Fractal has been kind enough to supply the part numbers:

6901498 Arc Midi front panel
6901499 Arc Midi top panel
6901503 Arc Midi left side panel

now the price and date of arrival is what NCIX is finding out. i'd like to see if they'll service the North America since others will not.

the wing boost are pretty nice too biggrin.gif

I mean you will hear them a 100% speed (tested in AI Suite, really loud at 1500 rpm!) but in my case, they are around 550 rpm and with high CPU charges, they increase until 900 or 1000 rpm.
And there is a radiator between them so of course, it makes more noise than the BeQuiet but Alpenföhn rocks, they are simply a must have to my mind thumb.gif

Note : I like silence so maybe my judgement is a little bit hard redface.gif

Be Quiet's fans, especially the new ones, are one of the best fans a silence freak can buy. The wing boosts are great fans too, but in silence I personally think that the Be Quiet's triumph.
