post #751 of 16139
Finally, I got my new rig! I have played around with it now for 3-4 days, and very pleased with this R3 case!

I have the original fans, connected to the fancontroller, and in my ears they are very quiet (I have the fans at the lowest rpm). If turned all the way to the max, yes, they can be heard, but it doesn't bug me.

Temps are pretty good as well. The CPU is around 27-31 degrees celsius at idle. When running prime95 the cores are around 50-53 degrees celsius. My GPU idles at 31 degrees while running furmark it topped at 77 degrees. When gaming CSS, CPU maxed at 45 degrees and GPU at 53 degrees.

The R3 is a very good case!! smile.gif

Does anyone know if a GTX 590 at 11" would fit in a arc mini case when removing the top HDD cages?

Thinking about getting this case with a:
Maximus Gene-Z motherboard,
2500k,
h100
and a GTX 590, and probably keeping my current PSU and RAM.

Does this sound good and will it all fit?


Thanks

interested in the arc midi because my mobo has a usb 3.0 port. I'm Not putting anything special in it really. Just my media comp(Inspiron)

Around black friday I plan on getting a
hd6850(just to watch movies etc.)
Fatal1ty sound card(Music)
500w PSU
Memory Card Reader

My 690(gaming build) is all blue'd out so was thinking of putting red LED fans in it for a little extra taste. How do they look in this case? Thanks in advance

Anyone have any idea how long the Define Mini has been out of stock at Newegg? I just stumbled across Fractal Design and the Define Mini, but it seems like the perfect case for me.

Only problem is Newegg is the only US distributor and they're all sold out.

Wondering if I should give in and buy something else or hold out for the FD Case.

You would have no problem getting everything in. Fractal states the Arc Midi can accommodate a card up to 10.24" with the HDD and 15.75" w/o the cage.

I would contact Fractal and ask when they're going to send another shipment. Fractal is usually pretty quick with responses.

Thank you for this +1, really looks like an excellent case. Is it a pretty light case?

Looking through this thread I see people fitting an RX240 with push fans so I'm sure a H100 would fit, but what about in push pull? Can you fit fans under the lid like you can on the CM690 I have now?

I'm not exactly sure of the size restraints on the Arc Mini. However this is what Fractal stated on their page about the Arc Mini.
Quote:
*The component support in the case when using radiator in top is depending on the thickness of the radiator. See info below. When having a 2x120mm radiator mounted in top, you cannot use the rear 120mm fan slot at the same time.
- Up to 40mm radiator thickness: Support for most water CPU coolers and larger memory modules.
- Up to 50mm radiator thickness: Support for most water CPU coolers and standard memory modules with a height of max 40mm.
- Up to 70mm radiator thickness: Support for only certain water CPU coolers, depending on the water inlet and outlet. Supports standard memory modules with a height of max 40mm.
A RX240 rad is 63mm thick and the H100 rad is 27mm thick. So you should be able to install a H100 with push/pull. You won't be able to place fans under the top cover. It sits flush with the top of the case.
