well if it wnt 6hrs and then tipped over, id build out of the case (to rule out case short) and
verify the same out of case. two things come to mind, BIOS or PSU. do you have a spare
PSU or even a beefy PSU power cable? swap if you can.
and revise report.

yes, the controller will fit and yes 2 SSDs can fit with some modifications to the tray.

The FC8 takes up one 5.25" bay, so it should fit anything with at least one, or space for one, 5.25" slot.
Speaking of, I haven't decided if I should go with something like the FC8 or just use splitters and run my fans to the R4's included fan controller.
i dont think the arc is updated to the R4 motherboard tray, yet. i believe the R4 has a tray
relief for the SSD install and the arc does not, until they retool for the production of newer
arc midi cases.
as for fans, leave the fan controler out and use voltage reducers from a molex or SATA
power tap. some fans can take a controller and some make 'em howl and click. under volt
or get a proper fan for that location. most forget to "adjust" and leave 'em WOT or too low
and have issues and forget to throttle up the fans.
