Each to their own. I never had the HDD LED connected to my old P180 and I don't miss it on the XL either, so yea To me, in this day and age its kind of irrelevant *shrugs*

Shouldn't be too hard to rig your own LED up to your motherboards pins, then you just gotta find a good place to mount it. Otherwise i'm sure somewhere someones done a thirdparty one somewhere, maybe a bay device of some kind?

I was dead-set on the Arc Midi but when I found out the front bezel was plastic, not aluminum, I died a little inside.

Personally this case needs more vents in the front panel door. What is the point of 2 front intake fans when the door closes over them?.......

Found an album with 76 pictures of the Arc Midi:

This case seems to be available already at some German and Austrian retailers. Hopefully, that's a sign of availability in North America soon .

The vents on the side and bottom should be sufficient enough. The Define series is supposed to mainly focus on silence, so the door is there to reduce noise.

Wow. Im loving this case. Haven't been able to find one that spectacular before. Nice find.

Of course it matters. Aluminum > Plastic.

Hey guys... Thanks for this thread... Spent 4+ hours going through this so far i think... I'm hoping to be part of the club soon, if i can find an r3 titanium grey stateside. Couple questions.

Some people comment how their psu cables were barely or not quite long enough with all the cable management, and having to buy extensions... What are they called exactly and where do i get them?

Also, anyone find the fractal fans stateside?
post #479 of 16053
I haven't seen any retailers stateside selling their fans yet.

Both my Seasonic and NZXT power supplies had cables that were long enough to route behind the motherboard tray. If you do need to buy extensions I would get these.
NZXT 24 pin extension cable
NZXT 8 pin extension cable

Newegg also has some cheaper ones that are unsleeved and sleeved made by StarTech and Athena.

Thanks for the response. For anyone wondering, I just emailed Fractal this morning and had already received a response back in regards to the case fans. There is no ETA on when the fans will be available stateside. Additionally anyone looking for the Titanium Grey version in the US, they will hopefully have more availability in the coming weeks. I'm already thoroughly impressed with their customer service, and can't wait to get my hands on a case.
