Yup...they fit without a problem thumb.gif ...pics on my sig rig

^^ Thanks for the info both of you smile.gif

Just bought 3 AF140's. Very expensive around here but should be a good upgrade over stock Fractals.

No problem thumb.gif The only thing I didn't like about the AF140's is that the power cable is kinda short :/

For the Arc Midi R2, would these fans really look out of place?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835345056

I would put one on the top, front and 120mm on the bottom.

Or would it be better to just go for these: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007WTCISY/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Guys, I just placed an order for the Define R4.
What sort of case fans would you recommend to improve the R4's mediocre cooling performance ?
While gaming, I expect the noise from case fans to get drowned by my GPU.

Congrats on the order, malvor. I just ordered the Arc Midi R2 since it's on sale. Got some NZXT FZ series fans with it smile.gif.

The R2 Silent fans are really not bad for case airflow. I don't know where this misinformation started, but the 140mm fans are quite decent for stock fans. Try them first at 5V and 7V.

I use 4 of them in my R4 and have no issues. I knew there was better but I was going for a nice uniform clean look throughout

One more question, will there be also a window kit for the Arc mini?

Thanks

~DocWaikiki ( sorry for my bad english frown.gif)

Hi there Doc.

The upper HDD cage is user removable, just a few screws. The lower cage can be removed but requires rivets to be drilled out. It is a mod, but not difficult or time consuming at all and I wouldn't be put off doing it. smile.gif

Also, Fractal have released a side panel with a window for the Midi, but not yet for the Mini. If you've got a jigsaw, that's another fairly easy mod, and I'm sure you can buy another side panel if you screw it up.
