You should buy some green tape, cut it so it replaces the red AX on the PSU, or simply paint it, just saying smile.gif

Dang, this is very similar to what I've been planning to build in a couple months biggrin.gif. Except I will be going with the G1 Sniper M5 and Arc Mini R2.

Was also gonna paint those corsair fan rings to match. What color did you use? Seems to match perfectly.

Hate to bite some of S@wyer's style, but the G1 Sniper boards are so sleek wink.gif

Man, I am extremely pleased with the Arc Midi R2. The build quality is just phenomenal.

Especially, the window...pleasantly surprised by the tint of the glass. It takes the edge off of any LEDs inside my case and makes them look so much more refined. I'm in love wubsmiley.gif

Hi Guys

just got the define xl r2 case down here in Brazil (from Frozencpu) and the standoff are (guess what thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif ): 6 mm. That means pci cards will not align properly with the case since the MB is lower that it should be. Apparently some cases are being shipped with 6mm standoffs while others are with the correct size 8.5 mm. So right now I have a useless case and I can´t manage to find the correct size standoffs here in Brazil. Fractal was unresponsive so far (24 h). Any ideas or suggestions of how to speed up their support?

Best wishes

Gabriel

PS- the problem is described here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1345154/fractal-design-introducing-define-xl-r2/110

I have two FD cases. I just thought I would share some good experiences I have had (for anyone considering the cases)

I have the R4 in which the fan controller (one cable) stopped working. I emailed them the issue and they had a new controller sent to me within a week (This was from Europe to Australia) and I also contacted them about the Node 605 (the glue came off the magnet) and they got back to me straight away with recommendations (just wanted to make sure it wouldn't void warranty mainly).

I guess its bad that I have had two issues with my cases (albeit small ones, was going to ignore the fan controller if they wouldn't do anything) but I have nothing but positive things to say - so much so I am considering another one of their cases for my server.
post #7988 of 16063
I'll play along. I don't have the greatest pics, but they will give you guys the idea.




Pretty sure the specs are in my sig. If not here is a quick rundown.

CPU: AMD FX6300
RAM: 32GB G.Skill Rip Jaws
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5
GPU: Radeon something...It's a server. It's small, no power adapter, and black PCB. Perfect for this build
SSD: Samsung 840pro 128GB
HD; 6x Seagate 3TB

Noctua fans throughout. Corsair H60 with push/pull setup. It's running Xubuntu and the 6 seagate drives are raided with ZFS. Running Raidz2 which is basically raid 6.

When I get a chance, I recently built HTPC's with the Fractal Design Node 304, and 605. I'll try to get some pics of those as well!

7 hours from now the node will be on newegg's shell shocker deal, so if anyone is interested might be able to get a decent price. thumb.gif

Ok, so I did just find a few pics of each of my HTPC's that I already had. Again...these pics aren't very good. I just recently got a DSLR, so new pics will be taken in the future. But for now, cell phone pics will have to do.

Here are a couple pics of my Node 605 I built. This is the HTPC for the living room. It's going to double as a lightweight gaming rig.




CPU: Phenom II X4 960T
RAM: 16GB G.Skill RipJaws
Mobo: Gigabyte GA970A-ud3
GPU: Gigabyte GTX660
PSU: Corsair HX750
HD: Western Digital 2TB Black edition

Air cooled with a noctua fan. Had a Fatal1ty Sound Card I through in too.


And here is a couple of the Node 304. I built this HTPC for our bedroom.





CPU: i3 2100
RAM: 8GB G.Skill RipJaws
Mobo: Asrock B75m-itx
GPU: Gigabyte Radeon 6670
PSU: Corsair HX 650
SSD: Corsair 120gb
HD: Western Digital 2TB Black Edition

Water cooled with a Corsair H60, push/pull with Corsair SP120's. This is a great little case. I really love it. Using the built in fan controller allows the case to run silently. If I run the fans at full speed, they are loud, but toned down, things are damn quiet!!
