I finally have an FD case! It's my first time doing cable management though, so don't blame on me if it sucks smile.gif

All that crap they attached to the case...... don't do nothing.
Not doing Fractal any favors by posting that mess.
[but that's just my opinion]

I agree, kinda takes fractals simpler and sleeker look and throws it out the door.

ya see thats decent form and function. thats what i like. rather than making it look super tidy but with no components etc etc. something with a decent amount of hd space etc etc, i mean i use mine for everything. gaming, photo editing downloading you name it it handles it. nice build dude smile.gif

Heres my arc midi. I'll post a pic of the insides sometime when I get a new video card biggrin.gif

CIMG5649.jpg


I seriously need help with the cable management of my arc midi. It's the first time I'm dealing with cable management as before I didn't realize there were benefits in doing cable management and I only had a cheap case with no cable management option anyway. I did store the cables neatly before but as neatly as I would like now.

I am using a seasonic x 560 psu, and the thing is... I still have IDE drives -- remnants from my very first computer and they still work. You guys know how expensive HDDs became after the Thailand crisis and since then I haven't really put my mind and efforts into replacing them. I did eventually (had my sister) buy a 1TB WD Caviar Blue drive which will come later this year but until then. IDE is going to be one major pain in my OC-ass.

I am confused by the cables provided by seasonic and many other powersupplies... why is the sata powercable set up that way? That you need to connect them upside down so that you can have them in chain....

hey guys i gotta quick question about the Arc Mini. with a little bit of modification, would it be possible to place a 360 radiator in the top panel? i've seen many 240 radiators but i'd like to run a 360 radiator. please let me know what would have to be done, thank you!

im curious but it looks like the radiators are wider than the 5.25" bay is..which would eliminate that idea of running a 360..but please let me know thank you!

I have a 360 rad in my Arc Midi. I just drilled out the optical bays and used the 240 rad mounting holes. Mini needs a lot more modding 'cause the top grill is shorter (for 240).

the width isn't really the problem for the ODD cage. center mounting the radiator in
the roof, presents motherboard issues. a thin radiator and a fan set limits the height
of RAM and MOSFET sinks. 30-35mm plus a 25mm fan makes a 70mm drop. check
and verify your mobo for clearance. removing the ODD cage will allow the radiator to
be offset with mods to the roof panel for the 3rd fan and you can increase the radiator
thickness (best solution) to 45-60mm or more fans with no mobo issues.
if you don't wanna hack up the mini case, use dual thick 240 radiators and go with it.

I may order an I5 3570K with an AsRock Z77 Extreme4-M today, and maybe a new GPU. I will post pics if I can when I upgrade.
