If you talking about Arc Midi R2 280 top, it will vary on what mobo is being used? So you would need to own the case and exact mobo to check for clearance.
in the front you can mount a 280 rad, but that also varies with model.

I can confirm that with the AS Rock Extreme 6 Z77 Motherboard it would fit if you do not have a fan on the back. I had such a hard time with the h110 though that I got a h100 instead. It was mountable on the front though if you wish.

I got around to installing the 2nd radiator. Alpha Cool XT45 installed up front. Sadly I didn't get to put the GPU water block on yet, the wrong one came in the mail. I have a 7970 water block for a 7950. Have to send it back and have them send the correct block. I painted the rear expansion slot covers black, the white was tacky in my case.

Still waiting on 5.25" drive bay adapter to 3.5", to move my hard drive from the bottom to the top of the case. SSD's are not pictured are mounted to the back of the motherboard tray. Still not sure what I am doing to do with the second hard drive There is space above the 5.25" drive bays where the front panel Usb, and audio/power. Will have to reroute the cables to go another route but the drive should fit up there nicely. Leave me with 4 hidden hard drives, and still keep my optical drive.

Coming along nicely. Temps are awesome

I'll probably get a Midi R2 for my gf later on and switch the windowed pannels.

Here's my part list, just in case : http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/user/stnz/saved/
I'm going for a white & black scheme as explained here.

Now, question time !

Did any of you tried to rotate the bottom HDD bay ? If I can't, my problem is that I have 2 HDD & 1 SSD, the SSD can go behind the MOBO, that I know, one can go in the optical bay, but since I'm planning on getting a DVD drive (quite useless these days, but I still burn stuff time to time), where would the second HDD go ? Any idea ?

Second question is a fan question ! I'll use the same kind of airflow mentionned by iworkatstapples (and I work at staples too ! What a coincidence !), anyway, I'm planning on getting 4 x AF120 and 2 x SP120 (as replacement for the H100i fans), how to set them up to achieve this airflow ? This is my first build, I didn't go that far in the airflow route so far. I would place 1 at the back, 1 at the bottom and 2 at the front (also I'm starting to wonder if the bottom is truly useful if I cannot rotate the bottom HDD bay or remove entirely and still place my 3 HDDs).

Thanks guys, hoping to see some good answers wink.gif


First Question: Use an Adapter to mount one hdd into the 5,25 bay and than drill some holes and skrew the second one under the bay. Than throw the ssd wherever you like tongue.gif

I´m still on my build so sorry for that mess...


Second Question: I would built on quiet a positive preassure.
Like 2 AF as Intake at the front, one intake at the bottom and rear intake (with a dustfilter on it thought.

Sorry for short answer I´m on the phone -__-
Just pm me if you have more questions..

Yeah, under the optical bay sounds good, I'll check if the holes that are there feet or if I need to drill some new ones, I'll throw the SSD behind the mobo and the second hdd in the optical bay. Concerning the fans, how do you set one as intake or exhaust ? You simply flip them ? It's dumb I know but I just want to make sure. What do you mean by building on quiet a positive pressure ? Detail when you'll be at home please smile.gif. Thanks a lot for your answer though !

Looking at some other pictures i'm pretty sure a 280mm wont work.

But would still love some accurate measurements concerning the things mentioned.
