Yea the Arc Midi R2 is a fairly big case. It's unbelievably wide and tall for just a mid tower. Pictures that you see on Newegg and what not make it look small, but in person its stinking huge. biggrin.gif

Thanks for the input, i think i will stick to my original plan of having 2 front intakes, 2 top exhaust and 1 rear exhaust...i would be getting the hyper 212 evo in pull config, to push hot air into the rear exhaust...

and most likely, i will be mounting the bottom hdd cage onto the bottom fan area...

Good start, dont see a point in moving the HDD cage. You have less clearance to plug in your drives and you will be seeing some of it in your window.
it wont improve airflow from the bottom front fan. What is important is the top front.
I would leave it as is and add bottom intake or remove all the HDD cage and add a bottom fan.

Sorry, i typed wrong, my plan was to put the HDD cage in between the bottom fan area and original area... i dun want it to be too close to the fans as it would be blocking the intake airflow, would prefer to give it some allowance...

I would be doing a cable management such that it routes frm the PSU to the back, and comes out from a slightly higher hole to the SATA ports of the SSD/HDD.. I'm okay with it being slightly exposed in my window...

Maybe i will play around with the cage and see if i can have it facing the PSU, and the SATA ports facing the front fans... That way, i would like some clearance for the SATA cables..

Look at how I have my HDD cage setup. It is in the original spot. only important is the front top fan.
Dont worry about the vertical mount. I did it that way myself.

No reason to so do. The way it will be mounted it will be very close to the PSU.
There is still space in between from the fan to the bottom HDD.
