How do you screw in sending a package from Oklahoma that was suppose to go to New York, but you end up sending it to two cities in Texas and a facility in Washington?

you know its cost effective to ship it more miles? like delta jetting me to atlanta and then to
seattle cheaper than direct by $400. just more skymiles for me, i guess..
i feel your pain..

Too bad the extra shipping miles just add on to the time I have to wait for the delivery...

Well, the package departed from the facility in Washington. I HOPE it's heading to NY by now; looks like it'll take an extra day or two to finally get here...

Too bad it's the only game of pin the tail on the donkey I don't wanna play.

Yeah, with front cover closed.

I just used those velcro dots to stick the ssd under the 5.25 bays, upside down, so I could use a right-angled sata and right-angled sata power without having it stick out. Same lead to the hdd that's suspended in the upper 5.25 bay.
I'd suggest suspending the hdd in the lower 5.25 bay (or getting a 5.25 to 3.5" adaptor, or using the one that came with the case) and putting the fan controller in the upper position.
I never adjust the speeds of the fans, i just want them slower, so i mounted the fan controller backwards for easy access to cables, threaded the cables in the hole above the 5.25 bay, and ran them down the front edge.

then use the 5-volt side of the molex power connector or use a under-volt harness..
no controller necessay. more wirs to tidy and manage, bleh...

I sent this suggestion to them. they replied.
Message:

Let me start off by saying your cases are amazing. They are very minimalist and offer more customization features then most cases. Also congratulations on releasing the R3 side panel window. I've always found myself trying to cram all my hardware in to a small package. With respect, I would like to suggest a side panel window for the Arc Mini/Arc Midi. Right now there are no mATX cases available with the side panel window. We as PC builders really like to show off our hardware and right now there's just no way we can do that with mATX cases. Please think about it. or at least sleep on it, I hope you have a wonderful day.

Regards, A soon to be Fractal Design Arc Mini Owner.

Depending on how well the R3 panels actually sell, we might very well introduce windowed panels for the mini models as well.



Regards,

Fractal Design
