Thanks for the tip. I will figure out something with that 8pin.

Should i leave fans in their default stock places?

Stick with air cooling , then pre packed water kits are way over rated .

dude, that 180mm in the roof doesn't help your H100 cause.. either a premium roof
modification or some custom loop thought. and stretching the hoses that length is
going to be painful as well.. although the XL is a tall R4/Midi, its 2" longer as well.

i have to disagree about being over-rated. on the contray. the 240mm sealed all-in-one kits
are pretty simple, easy to install and pretty spot-on in performance. now, no speed
records will be set by using them, but "over-rated" is pretty sharp term.

Hey guys, i need some advice from the people who use the Arc Midi.
I don't know if the bottom hard drive cage is removable or not, or even rotatable which sucks imo frown.gif
I was wondering how much the bottom hard drive cage will interfere with the 140mm bottom front fan's airflow.
I drew a diagram on my assumption on the airflow inside the case.

Bottom cage is removable you'll just need to drill out few rivets. It does somewhat block the air from that fan not completely though but removing it will definitely improve the airflow. Just did same thing with my core 3000 and it dropped my gpu temps by several degrees.

Ohh wow dude. Beautiful cooling & cable management :3
Mmm, how exactly did you get your SSD & HD to sit securely on your rig?
Also, i will be using 2 HD's (2 TB) and an SSD (250GB).

I might just add for the sake of things:
I will not use any water cooling in this build. I want to try and get as much out of air cooling as possible from this case. Also i will be using a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo for my CPU cooler (i7 3770k attempting to OC for 4.3GHz @ 70c).
