Anyone have a 580 with an Arctic Cooling Accelero Extreme? I see that the R3 can fit cards up to 290mm and the Accelero is 288mm - does it fit?

Edit - Found out it does! here

Pretty interesting, encasing their cases in solid block of ICE!
that is so sexy!

Don't buy this case. Just warning you how bad the build quality is in fractal designs. Metal is soft, more like plastic than metal. You will have resonating problems from hdd's. Worst case I've ever owned .

Ive had 0 problems with resonance. Also i see no issues with the build quality. The sides seem a little soft but i just think that is due to the sound dampening adding extra weight.

Hmm I actually really like the case and would almost equate its build quality to my 800D.

Hi,

I purchased a computer, still being built, using the R3 case. Was convinced to go with a Corsair H60 for CPU cooling. Now I'm concerned about exhusting air from the case. I believe the radiator for the H60 will be mounted where the rear exhaust fan would normally go. I have them moving the original rear exhasut fan to the front. If the H60 radiator is where the rear exhasut was and the fan is being used to intake air over the rad where will air coming in from the front of the case and air from the GPU be exhausted from? If the answer is to use one of the top fan places for an exhaust fam I may cancel the H60 and go to a cpu heatsink/fan and still be able to use the rear exhaust.

Thanks

BTW: The rest of the computer will comprise of:

Asus P8Z68-V Pro
i5-2500k
GSkill Ripjaws X 1600 2x4GB
Seasonic x-760
MSI Twin Frozr OC GTX 560ti
OCZ Max Iops 120GB Vertex 3
2x WD Green 2TB
ASUS 24x DVD ROM
I'll be overclocking it a bit, maybe to 4.2GHz, or a little higher but my main concern is quiet.

Hi Andrew,

Good news. The Define Mini should be coming this month to Newegg.

Cheers,
E
She will be mine. Oh yes, she will be mine.

As soon as I see it on Newegg, it's mine. ASSUMING it is cheaper than the R3 which it should since it is just a smaller version. I can't wait for that thing.

Has anyone used a non modular PSU with the R3? If so do you have pictures of the cable management?

I would be hesistant unless it is a smaller PSU with limited cables. I will take a picture of my modular in there and even with only one GPU plugged in it looks cramped.
