post #7621 of 16284
Hey guys,

I'm very excited about the Arc Midi R2, but got a question about the radiators that will fit (or not).
Someone already did a build with 2x 280mm radiators inside the R2?

Greetings,

DaTraS

I'm running two 240's with out a problem. The only thing I could see being wrong with 280's is the top might get really tight with High profile ram or VRM heat sinks. But a 280 in the front I'm confident wouldn't be much of a problem

I'd say that you have approximately 50 to 55mm of vertical clearance before you start running into potential fit issues between the radiator/fans and the motherboard components. A low profile 280 with a single set of 25mm thick fans (no push/pull and no shrouds) *should* be ok.

Thanks for the answers, guys.
So, the top should be fine - but what about the front?

Hey guys,

Going to attempt to sleeve the fans that were included with this case, whats the best way to "unhook" the cables from the fan casing without breaking anything.

I say the front will hold just about anything but the top is where you might run into clearance issues

Proud new owner of a core 1000. AND a new PC. The old PC was just more power than I needed or used, so I sold it to a friend and build this little thing. Works great, still games, was mad cheap, and was able to put more money into car mods. thumb.gif

Thinking I might spin the heat sink 180 degrees though so you can see my RAM. Idk, we'll see if I don't get too lazy. lol.

Even though i am sure this question has already been asked, i am just wanting to know if a corsair h110 will fit in the top of the R4, and if so is it only with two fans or is a push pull possible. Thanks: Mickey

I built a PC for my parents using the core 1000 case recently. Very nice looking case.

And that's exactly the point I'm not sure about.
I've seen the review on youtube with 2x 240mm radiators, and there was not much space left between the radiator and the 5,25" bays.

Dunno if the radiator was an extra long one, though.
