post #4921 of 16129
Right following my earlier post I can stretch the budget for my friends build and get a Fractal Arc Mini, now owners of the case, how do you rate it? It looks a lot of bang for my buck, and I'll throw some nice low rpm fans in, what's it like to work with?

Cheers in advance.

Hey guys

Quick question for those who might know. I am upgrading my cooling my my Arc Midi. Currently using a Antec 920.

However I am getting ready to go full custom loop. I am trying to decide on the XSPC RX kit, However here's my question

I know the RX240 kit will fit just fine. The RX 360 kit will also fit but will require me not to use the top 5.25'" drive bay. My question is Should i get the 360 kit for the extra radiator space even if the last 120mm fan mount will not be used? (i could mount a fan but that means i could not have a optical drive) So would the RX240 kit be better than the RX 360 kit with only two 120mm fans installed? Pretty sure if i do the 360 radiator I would be limited to push only, as i wouldn't want to loose my last 5.25" drive bay. I could do Push/Pull with the Rx 240.

Perhaps the RS360 kit would be better due to its thinner radiator and i could do 3 push fans then.

I am currently leaning towards the RX240 kit, and doing push pull. I will likely be adding another dual 140mm radiator to the front anyways, but that would require a bit of work to remove the lower drive bay and relocate it to give space for the 140mmx2 radiator.

Suggestions? Going to be cooling the entire pc, Fx 8120@ 4.9, 7950, motherboard gigabyte ud3. Will be starting with just the CPU and add on to the system as i get other blocks/ radiators.

Just make your own! It isn't as hard as some people say it is. If you don't have the tools or just don't want to do it, I'm guessing around Christmas time they'll have it.
