sorry, forgot about posting this lastnight. this is the only temp reading i have, and this looks to be while i was running BOINC (so gpu @ 100%, cpu @ 2%).

EDIT:
aaahhh, nevermind. i just noticed the 2000rpms fan, that would have been the 80mm fan that was on when i was using a universal gpu block and a unisink from swiftech, so no then, i guess i don't have a reading with the stock air gpu block on. again, sorry.

For my H50 in my Arc Midi, should I set the radiator as intake from the top or intake from the front? It's set up as intake in the top right now. What do you guys think?

Personally I would put the H50 in the Back as an Intake, because in the top as an Intake the fan blows against the rising heat and as I know a 120mm fan doesn´t fit in the front of an Arc Midi (correct me if I´m wrong).

I've got a 140 to 120mm adapter on the fan, I won't put it as intake on the back because I've got 2 reference cooler GTX 470s exhausting out the back, so I'd just be sucking all that hot air right back in again...

I've got all fans as intake except for the rear fan. 2 Bgears b-blaster 140mm intake in top (one attached to my H50 rad), 2 Bgears b-blaster 140mm intake in front, stock FD 140mm intake from bottom, and 1 stock FD 140mm exhaust out back. We've got 2 cats and a dog so I'm setting up a positive pressure system. Suffice it to say, animal hair is def an issue tongue.gif

When I moved from my Antec 1200 to this case I also swapped to IC Diamond 7 but I've been getting worse temps with that than I did with the AS5 I had been using. I'm going to reapply it one more time but if it isn't better I'll swap back to AS5. Maybe I can find some MX-2 at Microcenter. I dunno, I guess we'll see what happens...

if you could tell others about your case switch, what would you tell them about the Fractal Design Arc Midi?

did it meet your expectations?
was it a lateral move, better or worse?
was the case layout, looks or price what enticed the decision?
what would you want your Arc Midi to have to make you switch again?

SSD mounts on the rear of the motherboard. Something typically only found on higher end cases that I think all cases should feature.

I bought my Arc Midi yesterday to start off my first build. I know it comes with three fans (1 front, 1 top, and 1 back), but I plan on getting two Silverstone AP141's for intake fans. Am I allowed to move the front stock fan to the bottom of the case? and are the Silverstone AP141's compatible with this case?

Thank you for your help!
