The Arc Midi is quite bigger and heavier than the 3000 (I much like this case because for being only 200mm wide, however the cable management spacing will be a bit tight), has all fan holes sized at 140mm, ability to fit 3x140mm fans on top (or 360 rad), front USB 3.0, a bit better cable management (bigger holes and grommets, also the 3000 lacks P8 cable hole).

Other than that both chassis are very similar.

I´ve build in the Core 3000 and the Midi and you can´t go wrong thumb.gif

I actually went with the 3000 based only on the overall size. I wanted the smallest case (at a reasonable price) that could fit a full atx mobo. Antec 300 is close in size, but doesn't have nearly the same options that this case has. Love mine.
It's so little!

fractal cases are great (i own two) but right now there is a Corsair 300R on sale from the newegg for $65 shipped ($50 after MIR) . For that price you get more features and a better cable management. Believe me i've built pc's with both cases.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139011

again fractal cases are awesome but 300r for 65 bucks shipped is a pretty good deal

Looking to venture into WC'ing soon. Got to see what the cash flow is looking like.

What kind of lighting do you have in there? Looks amazing!

Thanks! I'm using 2 LED strips made by a member here on the forums.. One on the top and one on the bottom, Thinking of placing another behind the mobo tray to illuminate the side where the 24-pin wraps around. I really like the way that looks.

Laziness honestly. rolleyes.gif I might put it back up there and mount the SSD somewhere cool, I did notice a few degrees cooler without the cage though.

what you using? ~10mm?

I'm actually just using this cheap wide angle adapter on my 18-55mm D40 lens. RAW images and editing is your friend. lol

Note: The HDD cage is moved to the left you can see how far by looking at the original mounts under the 5.25 bays.


A shot of the front, the H100 includes some nice long screws which can fit though the fan filter & fans to reach the rad and clamp the whole setup together this is very sturdy despite the bottom fan only have two screws.

Sorry for the poor quality (taken on my HTC) also if you were wondering the silver usb cable is used as power for L.E.D light's on the inside of my windowed panel tongue.gif

Hope it helps! thumb.gif

Well lower temps for hard drives are not allways good. It"s unhealthy for them to work under 30C , the best HDD operation temp is 35-42C
post #5018 of 16132
Good news.. my HDD never gets that cold, it hovers in that temperature range so I'm set.

Anyone removed the 5.25'' drive bays in the Arc Mini? I'm thinking about removing them to put a 360mm rad in the front of the case.... but I'm not sure that it will work or be easy to remove them.
