I can't send you a pic at the moment but you'll see which tabs I mean because they should be already scratched.
EDIT:

Can I ask what you used to affix your Perspex on to the the inside of your case? I've recently finished a cut on the side panel of my R3 and trying to work out best way to bond the Perspex to the metal. I've got access to quite a lot of bonding materials.

Bottom, side or top ? Pushing in or pulling out ?
Thanks,
MaX.

I'd add one on the side panel as intake.

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

Welcome! So what case did you get? biggrin.gif

This isn't mine but I used just strong 2 face tape. I then routered a groove in the plexi the thickness of the tape and laied the tape in It. This way when the window is installed there is 0 gap between the window and side panel. I also finished the cut edge and painted it too so it pretty much looks factory.

Don't worry about strength. When testing mounting strategies and using 4 one inch strips(1 on each corner) it was hard to get back out. So naturally I did 360 degrees for the final mount and I'm pretty sure the metal would give first.

either one of the mentioned can do what your 400r can't. the mini will not hold your Z68 ATX board. welcome to the club!

should go in the floor as an intake. if you are still uing HDD cage (lower) the lower front will cool the drives
the upper fan will be for CPU/MOSFET cooling. the floor fan will support the GPU area with spill over from
the front fans.

Hmm's I've owned my Arc Midi for about 2 months now. I like the case, but then i saw the Corsair 900D at CES. Say good bye Arc Midi, you will be retired to Server.
