i bought the R4 for the White color, the window, and the silence. Plus i like the shinier finish it has compared to the Midis and the black R4s

The R4 looks so good. Fixes every annoyance I have with the R3. I just can't bring myself to tear my rig apart and re cable everything and ugh

Yep, lol. When I can afford it someday I'll probably have 3-4 systems in my house...that is, when I finally get a house someday. biggrin.gif

Sure, you could just drill the rivets on the bottom cage for the Midi, but what if I just happened to need those cages back one day you know. I'm not much of a modder so having this so easily done was great for me.

I feel like the R4 is a great case for WC'ing too. I'm just waiting for someone with great ideas to come out with a sick build on it.

Don't really think you can fit a radiator+ fans up top on the R4 as easily as the midi since the 2X 120 mm fan screw hole is are a lot closer to the center(which means the motherboard will be in the way . You could barely fit H100's 25mm radiator in there but no room for fans or vice versa. With some custom kit and a lot of modding work it can be done or you can get single 120 rad solution like H80, but I wouldn't say it is a "great" case for WC-> A Great WC case such as midi wouldn't need one bit of custom mod to mount a custom kit, let alone cookie-cutters like H100.

That's why I said someone with great ideas.. I know you can't fit much on the top, but a 280 can fit in the front with minor modification, and a 240 should fit easily on the bottom with a cut out.

Like I said, I'm just waiting for someone to come along and mod the ish out of the R4. thumb.gif

Hey airdeano, quick question for you and I can't remember if I've asked it before so my apologies if I have... On the Arc Midi, can a 140.2 thick or thin radiator fit in the top with push fans or will it interfere with the mobo too much? I know I can fit one in the front after I take out the HDD cage but I'm wondering if I can get one up top too, or if I'll just use a 120.2 up there instead. I know it's not a HUGE difference but I'd like to if I can. Thanks a bunch, I appreciate it!

Now Where would you put the Fans?? the Radiator would fit with long enough tubbing, but there is no space for fans to be mounted without relocating the Drive Cages(more modding). If a case need serious Modding to Custom WC it is not a "great" WC case,rolleyes.gif a "great" WC case is something like Midi that don't need tools heavy modding to fit thick radiator+fans inside.

(for reference i like to keep the temperatures below 60° with ambient 30°)

with no modding, the 280 rad will be hard to fit in the roof. the optibay is in the way, the thickness
will lend to interference on the motherboard (no offset). with that said, the roof riddled with mesh
allows some shifting to accomodate but depending on mobo selection there maybe tolerance issues
still. without a total remake or make-over of the roof the 280 rad is a tough cookie for clearence
of mobo, mostly.

i like the 280 for both positions so you can use the same fan, but again the tanks on the rads are
the clearence problems. even the 420 gets really tight fast with no optibays.

thickness... hummm thats a hard-one to field. i prefer the 60mm, fall-back to 45mm. in my experience
the 60mm alpha, HW-SR1, are the best for performance and low speed (sub1200rpm) rads.
XSPC doesnt have a RX280 just the EX and the fan speeds gotta be 1600+ to make them work.

if you are going for all that, i'd move to the 360 (my trend) with a lil roof modding and use the 280
for the front intake for a massive overclock and SLI/X-fire support. a fall-back to 240 roof and 280
front intake can still handle a hard CPU overclock and moderate to stock GPU clocking.

hope this doesnt muddy the water, too much!
