And i can"T wait to see you post pictures of yours build in it biggrin.gif
post #5533 of 16134
Aight. Build so far.

Case: Fractal R4 ($80 Newegg special)
CPU: Phenom II X4 955 (salvaged from Project Prebuilt, $115 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: Gigabyte 990FXA UD3 ($145 Amazon)
GPU: Gigabyte 7950 Windforce 3 ($298 from SuperBiiz w/ FC3, Hitman, and Sleeping Dogs)
CPU Cooler: Noctua UH-12P SE2 ($55 somewhere)
Memory: 8GB Samsung MV-3V4G3D/US ($40 Newegg)
Power: Seasonic X650 Gold ($100 Newegg, special at the time)
Storage 1: Samsung 830 series 256GB SSD ($230 Newegg)
Storage 2: Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB ($90 Newegg?)

The GPU and RAM are inbound. I'm trying to get a hold of at least 5x TY-147s and an Akasa 5-way PWM splitter. 2x front fans, 2x heatsink, and 1x bottom. That they look great and perform well enough on heatsinks that they should pull a good amount of air through the filters. The middle HDD cage will be removed, the bottom one will probably also be removed if I can find a 3.5 HDD + 2.5 SSD mount that fits in a 5.25 bay.

(Pics once all the things get here and I can start building.)

And the photo:
A little late to the party but I'm interested in adding those noctua fans to my midi. I have a question on how you mounted them, the usual way fractal design has you mounting these for me is clip the fans into front panel. So when you say front fan mounts, do you mean these holes in the pic? Also was there enough room to put the hard drive brackets back in when you mounted it?

Thanks in advance and your case looks so tidy on the cable management, I'm jealous. lol.

I've been waiting for an eternity to get this, should be here in a few days. +rep

For anyone interested:

The internal dimensions of the front fan shroud is about 137mm (W) x 288mm (L) x 25mm (D) before fan clips. This is enough space to fit virtually all 240 radiators except the Swiftech models with the res and with the res & pump. In case you're wondering, yes, the Fractal R2 fan is only 137mm. Unfortunately, this means it cannot fit 140 rads. So for those who want to keep the shroud in place to keep using the stock filter, rock on with your 240s. Just note that you'll probably have to trim the clips that hold fans in place and maybe drill a couple new holes in the shroud.

On a related note, the front filter is pretty nice, but the spiral pattern annoys me. It looks like the plastic actually sandwiches the filter material so I don't believe you can snip it out like you can the spiral pattern on the fan shroud. Does anyone know of any similarly-sized fan filters?

Hello, Arc midi owner here and been waiting for the windowed side panel ever since they announced it but I have never heard of these retailers before and was wondering if anyone has had any experience with these stores and I wonder why they gotten them in before Ncix or Newegg.
Any help would be much helpful and once I get mine I will be posting more pics of this amazing case!

Hey gang. Recently joined the board and I want to say thanks to everyone in the Fractal Design Case Club. thumb.gif

While I am still waiting for a couple key pieces to my newest build to arrive I have been looking through the pages here and I must say, you guys are a treasure trove of inspiration for the possibilities this case offers me. Proves I chose right while looking at that Black Friday sales ad!! I am going to slowly personalize and mold this beast into something I can truly enjoy. And not only from a performance standpoint but also from an aesthetics standpoint.

Looking forward to seeing all the other great pics you guys and gals post. biggrin.gif

Hey guys. I was looking at replacing my 400R with a Fractal case as I am getting a H100i and I would like more room. Question is will the Arc Mini, Midi or R4 be beat for the hardware I have?

Hi all,
a friend of mine just swapped his 6850 for a 7970 (lucky bastard), so he handed me his 6850 so that i can crossfire it with my own smile.gif

In my Midi I have the 3 stock 140mm fans (2 front pushing air in, 1 back pulling air out): if I have to add a 4th fan, where would you put it ?
Bottom, side or top ? Pushing in or pulling out ?

Thanks,

MaX.
