Heh. Well I wish it were a bit more rosy, but my selection is limited, because I want to use Rust-Oleum spray cans (I greatly prefer them to others I've tried to date). It's going to be a bit off from the room color, but good enough. Undecided if I'll just do full-on violet with black mesh or keep the case mostly black and add small amount of violet details, because two fans I will put at the front will already give a lot of violet glow. We'll see when it gets here, and I'll play with GIMP to make some test images.

Just got the arc midi r2 and I don't really like the tint, anyone know if the side panel you can order that fits the r1 is tinted?

Ok, played with GIMP using official Fractal Design images from the Mini page, and full-on lavender just looks bad on this case. How do you feel about some combination of the following:
(ignore the fans being so prominent--they'll be behind the grille, of course--this is only a "sketch")





Unsure if I'd paint the front grille yet, but I'll probably paint the top one.

Personally I would just paint the grilles.

Do you guys think that a reference design graphics card would be better in the Define R4 as opposed to an open air cooler? The airflow is a bit low compared to a more traditional case.

Anyone?

What do you mean by "at stock" exactly? The stock case fans / configuration? Total system not being overclocked?

I assume you mean enclosed versus open. From past experience, unless it was a cramped build with little space between components, heat build up was never an issue. The R4 is very roomy compared to a lot of cases in it's class. It's also a fatty that likes pie. So toss your treats at it. Even being a silent class case there is plenty of airflow to spare.

Basically, as far as enclosed vs open is concerned, I vote to just get the card that gives you the most at the price point you can afford.

I like to idea so far. Maybe also paint the Fractal logo in the same shade of violet? And the other side panel looks a tad bit loney tongue.gif
