you can adjust the panel latches on the top, bottom and lead edge for ease of slide and
alignment. the tighter the gaps, the harder the removal. but there is a line of both.
take a straight screwdriver and open or close the panel hooks on the top and bottom
of the panel. opening them makes it easier to remove, but can be prone to vibrate.

you know some cases did have the 140mm R2 fan in them, right?
they did not disclose the fan type. but yes, if they were 38cfm.. the 65cfm would have
been alot better..

Anyone seen these?

http://www.anandtech.com/show/5922/fractal-designs-node-series-htpc-chassis-at-computex-2012

Mini-itx and micro-atx htpc cases. I'm just sad to see there are no places for a blu-ray drive on either of them.

wooooow these look great!
I actually have not seen these before.
I can imagine the big one for a new HTPC or for Homeserver use:)
I think we will see many builds in these in the future smile.gifsmile.gif
Thanks for the advertise peterbazooka.

Checked up on newegg and noticed that all the R3s are gone, they coming out with a new design?

My R3 is actually quieter with its side panels off, is the padding just supposed to reduce echoing/amplification?

Anyone used a Lian Li bezel kit (see photo below) in the Arc Mini/Midi to try and hide a DVD drive?

Bezel Kit (Click to show)
300

Or I'm thinking of trimming the existing Arc blanking plate, mount the DVD drive back a bit and then stick it on the DVD draw. Saying that I don't use it that much, only for old games & data - Might turn it into an external DVD drive instead.

I'm thinking of building a rig for browsing/1080p movies with ASUS F1A55-M LX Plus mATX AMD and AMD A6-3500 APU. I have a NH-D14 lying around and thinking about buying the Fractal Design Core 1000 Micro ATX case and I see the width of the case is 6.89" (175mm) does that means I can fit the Noctua NH-D14 which is 160 mm in height with the fan? I've been googling all day and couldn't find any solid info. Please help!
I might have to go with Bitfenix Merc Beta which is on sale at my local computer store for 35$! I know it fits NH-D14 but as an ATX/mATX case it will be a tight fit under my table. I really want to the Core1000 though.
