Quick question to Arc Midi owners: can you fit a side panel fan AND a big tower cpu cooler like the SA? Thanks.

Inspired by this : http://forums.overclockers.com.au/sh...d.php?t=949898

I decided to jump the gun and buy an arctic white R3. I'm comfortable with a little modding, and I definitely want my 2x120 rad in the R3. While the Arc Midi would be the natural choice for my setup, I just like the R3's aesthetic more, I also want a quieter case.

Not sure if I'll actually just drill new holes for the rad mount (surface area loss seems minimal) or if I copy Krähe's mount (though that would ruin the white exterior).
Also I'll swap the red LED for a blue one (will be taken from my old case).

So yea, waiting for the case to arrive and then I might get some pics going

Looking forward to the pic's Kamikazee, good luck with your project.

Proud owner of a brand new Arctic white R3... and a GTX560TI Hawk to replace my GTX460 768MB Cyclone

I just assembled it all in the new case.

1) I put the I/O panel wrong so I'll have to re-assemble the whole thing. DOH!
2) cable management is amazing in there, even with my half modular PSU
3) however it feels that the case is noisier I have three fans in there (two stock + a blue CM fan) all connected to the motherboard (not yet using the fan controller though I will soon). The noise is more hissy than it used to be with my Antec 300.

The R3 is twice the case the 300 is but I may need to do some tweaking to get it to its best. Such a beautiful design too...

Can you buy a custom side panel that has a clear view? I'm in love with the R3, and
I'm getting close to purchasing it. and having a clear side panel would be a dream with that sexy case!

I don't think there ever will be one, since fractals goal with the R3 seems to be silent operation, which is not possible with a windowed side panel.

Hello,
Is there a way to fit a gtx 580 with an Arctic Accelero XTREME Plus II in the R3 ?

Mini owner here, but if I'm not mistaken, the fan is placed over the expansion slots, not the CPU block. It should be absolutely fine.

My R3 has turned up. Can't wait to install everything. Any tips on cable management? Also would it be worth putting some different fans in it? I've got 5 Silent Eagle SE's that I could install.
