[Official] Fractal Design Case Club - Page 64

post #631 of 15747
Then I'll drop them a line asking if they sell the acoustic foam vent covers. Do the Arc Midi's front fan slots accept 120mm and 140mm fans or just 140's?

I might also pester Fractal to see if they'll make my dream case one day:
  • Arc Midi dimensions
  • Arc Midi fan mount locations, all accepting 120mm and 140mm fans (maybe bigger side fan)
  • Provisions to mount common radiators up top
  • Fractal fan filters
  • Fractal vibration absorbing drive mounting
  • R3 noise absorbing foam and fan mount covers
  • R3 front panel door (removable of course)
  • USB 3
  • Removable/rotatable and hot swappable upper (and lower?) HDD bay cage(s)
  • Muted, R3-minimalist appearance
  • Same price point

Room behind mobo for cable management, true modularity with internal air flow and cooling, modernized USB compatibility, and everything is quieter and breathes better (with the ability to emphasize either).

C'mon Fractal, make it happen!

The Arc Midi's front fan mounts are only for 140mm fans.

^I was considering the Arc Midi and then when I saw that, I just turned away. Now I'm just torn between the FT02 and Define D3 (Silver Arrow).

If the psu had less molex cables, it wouldn't be such a mess, but at least there is enough space and the side panel doesn't even bend.

Greetings

Thanks for the pic. Very helpful. thumb.gif

I finally made the desicion and ordered myself a new computer! All the goods in a Titanium Grey Fractal Design R3!! Rest of the parts can be seen in the sig below. Can't wait for the parts to arrive smile.gif

Would anyone mind taking a picture or three of how the front two fans mount? A review on Vortez.net shows them mounting to the front fascia/bezel/whatever and mentions it uses clips, not screws. Maybe it's possible to mount a 120mm fan there with a little creativity?

I think it's possible to mount 120 mm fans in there, but you need to be really creative then.

You could use zip ties to mount smaller fans in there for example. ; )
