Just had an email saying the parts for my friends PC that I'm building will be here tomorrow. Really looking forward to working with the R4. I'll post some pics on Saturday when it'll hopefully be finished.

Thats a 280mm Alphacool UT60 in the front. With barely any modding at all. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Added a couple things to my rig... Swapped the 2 stock 140's up top for a couple Gelid Wing 14's. Also replaced the Intel cpu fan for the Gelid pwm fan. So all case fans are now gelid.

Also swapped out the white pci slot covers for some black Silverstone Aeroslot covers. I think it looks significantly better, plus there's a bit more ventilation for my case.



Hopefully I can catch a deal on a 240gb+ ssd on black friday to eliminate the need of my hdd so I can remove the cage and clean up some space.

Also planning on getting the corsair ax850 sleeved cable upgrade kit, but can't seem to choose between the black or blue kit. Suggestions? I've seen the blue ones for $70 online but not quite sure if it'll match my components. Black is obviously the safer choice, but looking at $90-100 for those...

Has anyone taken out their foam on the Midi? I am planning on getting new fans and want to remove them.

Yep. I de-foamed mine as soon as I opened the box. Looks much better.

Agree it looks way better. I know there are many other things to consider in this question, but is there a lot of dust since it is removed? I may just buy some filters and put them there.

latest update on my machine...It's still a mess but slowly getting put together. I decided to try the monsoon fittings and while they look good the finish suck. Ive scratched the blue off a few fittings within a few seconds of using them.

as said before, i never powered my case on with the foam inserted. always had the foam out, first mod
was to cut the cross-bars away and filters installed on back of fans.. i have minimal if any accumulation.

Not a Midi, but the Core series has the same thing. I trimmed mine (140mm fan circle) and cut out the cross bars.

It's so little!
