The PC is less than a month old so I'm slightly annoyed by this haha.

If you can't fix it, get a spare part from Fractal. Just email them about it.

Ordered the following to continue my rebuild from an old Dell Vostro 200 PC

Mobo = MSI B75MA-P45
CPU = i3-2120
RAM = 8GB 1333MHz (Corsair XMS3 x2 4GB)

When funds are available I will probably get an SDD & replace HDD's & maybe a new GPU too, (not all at once tho')

Is there any watercooling options for the define mini? I'm stuck between that and the ARC MINI.

It's the same case with different panels AFAIK so technically watercooling in the cases is the same, (possibly) just more cutting involved if you get the define mini. Front 240 and rear 120 shouldn't be a problem.

So I'd have to remove the hard drive bays? where would be the best place to store hard drives if I'm also using a bay res?

Fractal told me on one of their emails that Define cases are not water-cooling ready. Frankly, I didn't think of WC when I bought mine. Anyways, that means, you must mod to make everything fit. What I don't like about this fact is that I hate modding, especially cutting the case. What I do have in mind though, is removing some components, like the entire HDD cage. You can do that by drilling out the rivets. No biggy up to here. Then, what I'd need is to make some sort of precision cut mount for say, a 240mm rad and hook it up with new rivets where the hdd cage was. This way, you get "clean" modding of the case, so you're not cutting and destroying it. I must say it's tempting to just drop the case and get another one that need not any mods for WC to work. I definitely think that FD will make the R4 and the next Define Mini WC compatible. They must. biggrin.gif

Yeah. I like the silentness of the Define Mini. but the watercooling options of the Arc Mini. I also hate modding. Oh how I wish they made something inbetween.

They will. Other brands are breathing down their neck, so they must step up once again.
