Bit-tech.net has a bit more info:

As for the Fractal Arc Mini 2, this micro-ATX case includes fully removable drive bays - both HDD and optical - allowing for that top mounted radiator and a 2x120mm radiator in the front. The radiator mount is also offset in front of the motherboard to keep the overall case size as compact as possible, with dimensions of 210 x 405 x 484mm. Two SSD mounts are again inlcluded on the back of the motherboard. For accessing the top radiator it's a simple case of siding off the top filter section.

I've used cheap spray paint before (like 88 cent Wal-Mart brand cheap) and even that holds up pretty well. All you need to do is paint light coats to avoid dripping and make sure the surface is smooth and clear of any imperfections. I would go with a can of Rustoleum or Krylon if you can find the right shade of tan to match your Noctua fans. If you are having trouble finding the right color and need more shades I'd look into buying some Montana or Ironlak spray paint. I really like the idea of painting the white pci covers beige/tan to match with the Noctuas, seems like a subtle mod that would look great. Be sure to post up pics in this thread if you get the chance, I'd love to see it being a Noctua fanboy myself biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

Thanks for the reply. And of course, I'll definitely post some pics. I might as well Rust-Oleum and use it for other stuff around the house.

Now my idea at first was the paint the slots to match the frame of Noc fans - kind of a sandish color, but now I think I should do one slot sand, and one brown, like the blades themselves.

What do you guys think?

I use the Noctua 140mm FLX fans, they pump a hell of a lot air through my current case, but they don't half look fugly, if only they were black.

I would like to join, the specs of the machine are in my Sig smile.gif.

The case is a Define R4.
post #7919 of 15935
Does anybody know/tested if you can use plastic 3.5 inch rails from different cases in any of the Fractal cases available instead of using the white metal rails included?
post #7920 of 15935
Would a better option be just to paint the white rails black because the white does not match my color scheme any help would be much appreciated thumb.gif
