You usually need some sort of adapter to fit a 3.5 hdd into a 5.25 bay. Some cases come with one. You can buy some metal mounting brackets for around 5 bucks. Or you can spend a bit more on some fancy bay device. You can also rig some mounting thing up from scratch too if you're clever.

Yeah, I'm almost 90% sure (and won't be able to try it out til I get home later tonight) that it's due to the simple fact that I changed chipsets (P67 --> Z77) and didn't re-install Windows.

I know there are driver workarounds, but a re-install on my OS boot drive will be faster smile.gif

On a side note, I cheated with the H100 mounting. I offset the radiator by aligning it with the 140mm mounting holes and using washers to mount the remaining points in the hex-mesh cutouts XD
You can't even really tell unless I pointed it out. (High quality pics coming this weekend)

There should already be a 5.25 to 3.5 adapter in the 5.25 bay. It was for my Midi. But if it isn't, you could buy one:

Looks a lot cleaner without the extra cages in there. Plus it could help temps by a couple of degrees!

You can do it, obviously, but you would need top pop out the 5,25-bay-covers, that wouldn´t fit the look of the case IMO.
But it´s yours wink.gif

How do you have the Silverstone Filter attached? Just magnetically to the wire mesh? Being the cheapskate I am they seem quite pricey but I am glad they work well for you and they might end up being an option for me.

I've totally disassembled my front and top panel and my magnetic touch latch idea will not work as there is just not enough room between the two fans in the middle (much less anywhere else). Unless these type of latches are made in much, much smaller sizes I doubt it can work (and then the issue would most likely be an inadequate magnet).

I did pick up some circular magnets and they kind of hold the mesh in place but I think I was too conservative on the magnet strength. I am going to try some more fitment of them tonight as well as a pantyhose/cutout idea that could work well for a filter but would still leave me wanting in the "easily serviceable/Midi R2-esce" way.

Will update.

Just Lumia 800 pics wink.gif

I´ve just attached it inbetween the fan and the front mesh / plstic. I would suggest you to use them, if you can´t find a way to work out your idea.

Hope the circular magnets will do the job. thumb.gif
Like Techn0 said it will be interesting if the R1´s front is exchangeable with the one of he R2, than I think than Fractal will make it somehow possible to sell them seperatly.

guys?
Any recommended cooler for 2500k inside fractal 3000 case ?

Would h100/h60, Macho or arctic 13 pro fit?


I am mostly set for Macho hr02 or nzxt havik 140.

I've noticed there are two versions of mahco. Which one I want? macho black and white is bigger and is 162 at max point. Would this fit ?

I have an old Macho (with the TY-140 fan) inside an Arc Midi and it fits, even with a side panel fan (stock fractal), but it's really the maximum you can squeeze out.
Don't know if it helps you .. maybe you can compare the specs clearance of the midi to the one of the 3000 ...

This is what I recommend to everyone saying that a 240mm radiator can't fit in the top of the R4. You don't necessarily need the proper mounting holes when you have all those mesh cutouts in the top of the case.

Your build looks awesome by the way. thumb.gif
