to put the connections behind the motherboard because of the PSU and motherboard
themselves.

Cheers for the info mate. Looks like I'll have to change my plans a little then. I could use 3/8 but it wouldn't look that good considering it's in an ATX case.

I'm planning on adding an CoolStream XTX 240 to the top of the Midi with some AP-14s. Will it clear?

I recently got my R3 and although I haven't tried, I'm pretty sure the HDD cage is made so that it could be rotated 90 degrees.

Hi guys,

Random question: How do I mount a 240 radiator in the top of my R3 case? Do I need some sort of bracket? I can't get the holes to line-up on my black ice gt 240 rad.

I want to do something like this:



I realize that's not an R3 tongue.gif
post #4127 of 16052
On my R4 I am removing both harddrive trays because im watercooling. Where is everyone else putting their harddrives in this situation? Btw can anyone give me an ideal length of screw to fit my fans and radiator on the case? 40mm?

I know that the r4 has HDD's similar to the arc midi. If you take out both drive cages then you can slip drives into the 5.25" bays if you're not using them. If you are using them and you only have 1 drive then try sticking it to the bottom of the 5.25" bays (where the top HDD cage attaches) with some velcro. If you have an SSD then velcro on the back of the mobo tray should work too. Excuse my crappy grammar and spelling if i screwed up I just finished typing a 400 word essay and it;'s late and yeah =)

Finally got it all pieced together.. still need to work on some cable managing but this will do for now. Temps aren't too bad either. Currently at 29C, and all my temps rose about 3C during idle. About to test gaming temps now with some CS:GO and BF3. biggrin.gif

So now the upgrade path looks like this: 7870 is coming in tomorrow and I may buy a new monitor, waiting for the Bitfenix led strips to come back in stock so i can order a white strip, ordering some Samsung ram soon, and looking for some new fans. The R2s are really quiet but they just don't move enough air for me. Any suggestions?





Wow.. the D40 just doesn't look as good as it used to.

Are those the stock fans everyone is using those white ones? I am looking at picking up a Core 1000 I think it only comes with the 1 fan. How good are the fans my current case has a ton of yate loons which have been pretty decent and not too noisy. I really don't want a noisy fan so let me know if I should order a replacement.
