[Official] Fractal Design Case Club - Page 35

post #341 of 15987
Two websites have surfaced that at least have the Arc Midi listed for sale (one doesn't have it in stock, not sure about the other).

http://www.techbuy.com.au/p/167329/CASINGS_MIDI-TOWER/Fractal_Design/FD-CA-ARC-BL.asp#

http://www.quietpc.com/ca-en-cad/products/pc-cases/fd-arc-bl


Unfortunately, Quietpc says "[Coming late May, 252 on order]".


LATE MAY?!?? I hope that Quietpc is just farther back in priority in terms of which stores get it first. I'm not sure that's the case though.

I think I'll wait another week+ and see if anything surfaces. But imo if it was going to be out in a week or two we'd already have more news/store features/updates.



Edit, can you take out the black plastic contraption out of the bottom of the Define R3 case, and attach a fan just to the metal, without using the attached plastic piece?

Just a Questions to you guys who own a Define XL,

1) Can the Side Doors be removed? If they are fixed how are they attached?
2) What is the Distance Between the Case Floor and the Horizontal Lengths just above the Hard Drive Holders?

The Reason I am asking is because I am going to start a new Build Log,

Thanks for any help provided.

Cheers - Jason.

QuietPC had the MIDI listed on there site for at least a month and it was supposed to be in stock April 29 IIRC

Are temps fine in this case if you're running hot/overclocked hardware? Unfortunately all the reviews I've read use the stock cooling setup.

Does anyone have any heads up on when the ARC mini is going to be available - Rough costings also?
post #348 of 15987
I was told that Newegg will have an expanded Fractal line-up by June when I asked about the Define Mini. I'm waiting for it as I don't want another Mini P180.

1. Side doors? I assume the panals they are not the traditonal slide into place like most cases on the market but a simple pivoting point and held on with two thumbscrews. (Much easier imo)

2. I assume the bottom hard drive compartment? It's about 6 1/4 inches and from the bottom of the inside of the case to the bottom of the drivebay it's 12 1/2 inches.
(hope that is what you needed)

and any other info
