Case on caster base. Bottom left the shadow shows how back is lower than sides so filter can slide in & out.

Rolling my PC around my room would probably entertain me for days TBH.

Hey everyone - finally drilled out the bottom of the lower R4 HDD tray so I could install it in my Midi. I know it doesn't make a huge difference airflow wise but liked it a little better aesthetically and will eventually need the capacity for more drive bays. Will probably end up putting some carbon fiber tape on top of the tray to clean it up a little.

Drilled out? AFAIK it( R4 Bottom HDD tray) was only bolted down to the bottom with screws, only need a screwdriver to remove that right?

That why i want to put at least the 2 120 on the front

there is no link to look at scheme..
i painted my BGears 140mm fans:


and will prolly paint more.. way to easy than settling on something that may/may not function well.

the front panel guides can be spread out to allow a "looser" grip as not to bind. same with the
upper and lower guides (these are usually too tight causing your issue).

good looking out airdeano. will do. I would be lying if I said I dident expect more from this case, not as silent as I thought, however build quality is nice.

what? the OE fans are frickin dead (no flow, but quiet) or overall, because the
side vent is HUGH and allows all interior racket to sound off...
before i loped the side-panel i bolted a piece of deadening to the 140 panel grill
and that was a marked improvement on system noise... i had asked FD if they'd
consider a Mod-U-Vent (R3 option) and they werent to keen on the idea said
"we only have 180mm".. uhh yeah, i have sissors and screws... anyway glad
the quaility was there for you..

Haha I should have been more clear. I unscrewed it from the r4 but had to drill new holes in order to screw it to the midi.

I don't have any side fans on I left the foam on it. just have two in the front and one in the back. probably will add one on bottom too. Once I get a new front panel Ill be good. For now though Im already mocking up some designs/themes to customize it. I was afraid whit fans would not go well with my black and red mobo but it dont look bad so ima keep them and do white tubing for water.

first make a template of the HD's screw hole pattern

empty 51/2 drive bays , tranfer template over and drill
out matching holes

a 90 degree or right angled drill will come in handy

screw down thru drive bay into HD.

use some kinda suspension washer/standoff
to keep HD off of direct cage contact

real simple......but very effective

Unfortunately....having a tower on or near the floor, is truly the worst place to keep it.

Basically, now you have a vacuum cleaner. Sucks in all kinds of particles. [LOTSA DUST]
