Alternatively, you can try to pop the head off the rivet with a mallet and chisel or dremel it off and pop the body out. In either case, the only way to remove the cage involves taking some tools to your case that have the potential to mess it up.
Success! Some scratches around the rivets, but I got them off!

Now the problem is i don't know where to mount the HDD.. didn't really think this through stitchfacesmiley.png

You have the option to mount 2.5" drives in the back of the MB tray, or you can buy the 5.25" adapters to mount 3.5" or 2.5" HDs up on top.

Great, thanks for the answerws about h60.

What about macho tho ? Would it fit in 3000 or do i need arc midi ?
Fractal 300 is cheaper

you can mount the hard drive to the back of the motherboard tray. If you really want to. Even a non solid state drive will fit there. Or you can use adapters on the 5.25" bay. Another option is to get a piece of plexi glass or sheet metal, and make a mounting plate. Personally I have plans to just push the hard drive cage out a inch or so on the bottom, to mount a 280 radiator in the front. While my pump and reservoir will go on top of the drive cage.

I have a optical drive that i want to keep, so most of the dual bay reservoir will not work for me Another option is to get a single bay reservoir and pump setup.

Get creative with it. But the Arc Midi is prolly one of the best mid tower cases for water cooling.

I assume you mean the Core 1000. It's compact, but I wouldn't say it is the quietest. There's no sound dampening and the HDD rumble can be heard on their mounts. It's a $40 case though, so it won't offer much. I would rate it a 7/10 considering the price and what it has to offer.

That's the one! Was looking at the mid tower one too haha. Yeah I've been out the PC building game for a few years so just wanted to check around!

Thanks for your input smile.gif

I heard the Define Mini is built for silence (costs around $100 though), so I recommend getting input from Define Mini owners.

I have an R4 and looking to make it quieter but keep good airflow. The stock fans are noisy at 12v so i was thinking of moving them to the front at 5-7v. Now for the back and top i have two choices:

-Thermalright ty-140 using pwm on back + one corsair af-140 on top 7v
-af-140 on back and one on top both at 7v

im looking to avoid not only motor noise but wind noise. the blade design on the thermalright makes me think more air pressure thus more wind noise but i don't know. would the ty-140 move more air with less noise or should i save the extra $7 and get two corsair?
