Yes, there is the gap to allow the fans to intake air in from those side vents, so the face of the fan would be visible if it was lit.

For anyone wondering about the Arc/R4 side panel. Fractal had a slight issue with their distributor and have had a delay. They are expecting it to be ready with them in 6 weeks.

What's the easiest way to mount a 3.5" HDD in the case when removing all of the hard drive cages for more airflow? My SSD would go behind the motherboard tray. I have a fan controller, but is it easy to mount the HDD upside down under the 5.25" bays?

I put mine in the 5.25" to 3.5" adapter that came with it. Just pulled all the HDD cages last night to put an H100 in the front.

It's so little!

You mean that came with your HDD? I don't recall my Arc coming with anything like that. Your build look's good! biggrin.gif Maybe I'll end up getting a 5.25" adapter but was hoping to put a reservoir up in the dual bays at some point. smile.gif

On the core 1000 does the side mounting hard drive offer any cooling benefits? I would imagine if its mounted on the lower section of the bar it might be hit by the 120mm fan?
Let me know if not I'm just going to mount it in a drive bay with an adapter I have. I prefer to have a driver securely mounted horizontally vs vertically on that bar, it looks like it might vibrate. Thoughts?

Yes the side mount for HDD's & SSD's does get in the way of the air coming from the front fan and cools it my hdd dropped over 5c when installing it into this new case.
