Well, the problem is far less enhanced now. I can use a 120mm rad for the cpu and a 240mm rad for the gpu, make a nice loop and I'm done. I don't like top mounts anyway. Although, top mounts is better as hot air ventilates upwards and would clear faster this way, plus it'll be closer to the pump/reservoir.

I will personally go and test a H100 next week if I have any free time at work: I'll be doing 2 shifts (wednesday and friday iirc). It's very possible that my workmate is a retard and could have tried to install the rad on the 140mm screwholes or something (he has done that once before...). What they've done with the front looks great though, I think this case just went from 8.9/10 to 9.38/10 tongue.gif

I think the "problem" is solved.

first thing this morning representative from Fractal Design Josh first video release was very vague about
the front inlet and roof radiator projects.. and her video was not a clear cut answer to water cooling the
front-end of the case. ya kinda need to attach a radiator to something mmm "solid" or your gunna have
5 feet of coolant hose to allow for the thing to tip outwards.. it was an idea at best. i'll wait to see how this
lil experiment unfolds.. but until then my doorless R4 and i are quite well..

if you'll measure the roof height for 53mm, it'll tell you everything. due to the lack of an offset like the midi/mini the H100 is
not going into that case without roof modifications.

This thread has convinced me to get an Arc Midi. Gonna get one within the month. Already got a local buyer lined up to buy my Sniper. Awesome case, but tired of the flashiness. Want some sleeker and more minimalistic.

I wonder if anybody has tried to fit a 120mm in the 140mm slot on the front panel of the core 3000. If you did, did it work?

Here are some pictures I took for another member of my core 1000.  a 140 mm should fit, just would need some new holes of course.

 

The first 2 pictures are a 120 mm frame, the last one is a 140 mm.

I meant the 140mm slot of the core 3000 because it clips it in. I just wondered if anybody has tried fitting a 120mm fan on it because I can buy 120mm fans cheaper in bulk compared to buying a bunch of 120mm and a single 140mm. Plus, there are more choices for me if I buy 120mm

i hear ya, had a sniper black as well to build up. i came from the 800D to CM 690 and now Arc Midi. and you'll like the
approach to modding for this case as you can have it all or stripped down to bare essentials for any type of cooling.
whether it be a straight air-cooled rig, or a bolt-in performance liquid cooler to a full blown custom water loop.
and the under 500mm x 500mm (20.0" x 20.0") case format it can do a lot. i was gunna jump on the Prodigy wagon
but i'm really happy with the midi, i may do a second one..
c'mon aboard the Fractal Design train...
