post #5331 of 16134
Ugh I really want to remove the stock filter in the front and replace it with Demciflex, but I don't know how it'd work with my mod.

I want to do what ekg84 did with his 3000. I will first cut some cardboard to fit the front, then spray paint it black. Cut holes for both fans, then put tape on the panel and put it together. But how will I attach the filter? Unless I'd be taking the cardboard every month to clean it. I'm confused..

I need that controller... The built in one is great, but I want a little more control.

Lian Li makes aluminium cases that are of very high quality, not really comparable with Fractal Design.

Lian Li makes aluminium cases that are of very high quality, not really comparable with Fractal Design.

Um, I've owned both, and Fractal Design uses a thicker gauge steel than Lian Li (in my experience). Both are mainstream companies that have comparable products at this price range. You cannot compare a $80 chassis to a $200 chassis objectively. Lian does have some added components for hot swapping ect., but that is included in the price. Frame for frame and skin for skin, I would prefer a FD over LL.

I personally never been a fan of Lian Li cases. Some of them look ok. Comparing to Fractal Design is comparing apples and oranges though. The only thing they really have a common is its a computer case. Fractal uses Steel+plastic and Lian Li uses aluminum. With the use of aluminum nets a high cost of manufacturing, vs traditional steel. The aluminum cases however are vastly lighter, have better cooling characteristics, easier to mod.

Granted the Fractal cases are designed really well with thick high quality steel panels, they are heavy. Not a problem for most people, as their computer never gets moved. Personally I like Fractal cases could be even better if they put in a few more high end options. One thing that bugs me about my arc midi is the plastic front panel that looks like brushed aluminum. How about making a actual brushed aluminum front? Why are the dust filters for the front panel and top panel not removable? Why is the fan controller located in the rear of the case, with ghetto cable management?

I would love to see Fractal come out with a Arc Midi XL, with a few more 5.25" bays, and a good way to include a 360 radiator, combined with my other weak points (fan controller, front panel)

That is one of the advantages of aluminium cases, not only its lighter already but you can design thinner cases and still have them very solid.

My Lian Li PC-50 has thicker aluminum sheet than my R2 steel sheet is. wink.gif
