Hey guys.

Just wanting to double check - can you fit a 240 rad in the top of this case and still use the rear 120 fan slot?

Tempted to sell my P182SE for an R3 as the P182 really isnt designed for WC'ing.

How difficult was that? I'd really like to remove it, then put a few back...

I'm ordering the Fractal define R3 this weekend. I'm currently going to be piecing a new system together. How is the airflow in this case, and is there anything you dislike about the case? I'm going with Sli 580's.

Here are some updated pics of my R3.

I changed out the stock case feet for some MNPCTECH billet aluminum micro case feet. Had to use the smaller ones because of the psu intake/filter. I also had to drill out the holes bigger to install the feet. The stock feet were so cheap and the foam pads came off to easily.

I replaced my Scythe Mugen 2 for a Corsair H70 and replaced my 5770 for a 6950.

Added a Scythe S-Flex G at the bottom intake. So I have 2 Zalman ZM-F3s in the front, 2 Scythe S-Flex Gs at the top, 2 more S-Flex Gs on the H70 controlled from a Lamptron Touch.

Agreed.

Also, I've been trying to contact Fractal for information on a release date for the Arc Midi (in Canadian stores) and and an estimated price but they haven't gotten back to me in like two weeks. Kind makes me feel like looking for a new case.

This morning I emailed dazmode about some of his fans and I got a reply within 30 minutes.

a couple places in UK have a price listed already

http://www.specialtech.co.uk/spshop/...pid-13090.html

edit
They list the R3 for the same price as the midi so I would expect the same here in the US and Canada around $110

I expected it to be around 100 bucks. There's a lot of competition with most products in Canada so hopefully NCIX isn't the only website with Fractal Design stuff. Newegg.ca doesn't even have the R3's yet, but Newegg.com does...

What is the point of running fans in a case that is closed like that? I'll tell you: NO POINT WHATSOEVER!

Those refrigerator-looking cases with a front panel that is 100% closed will net you ZERO airflow in your case.
