Ok guys so for now I have my HDD ghetto mounted under the 5.25 bays. I really am going to have to think of a more permanent solution though. I really don't want to mount it in the 5.25 bays themselves using that adapter as I think there'd be a lot of vibration and the cables would be visible.

So, either buy a Himuro and mount it there or drill the HDD cage back in. Which, by the way, how would I go about doing that? I know I'd need a rivet gun, but what size rivets would I need? If anyone has a link to some, I'd prefer it to be at like Home Depot, Lowes.

Trying to plan my next build smile.gif.
well... the arc mini r2 supports alot of watercooling with a 360 up top and a 240 in front, every bay (seriously, every) is removable and it has 2.5"-mounts behind mobo. that's at least what i can remember tongue.gif

Well there is this you can get. It converts dual 5.25" bay to 3 HDD or 4 SSD.
Has a 80mm fan with filter to keep cool.

Evercool HD-AR-RBK HDD Cooling Box for Three 3.5 HDD or Four 2.5 HDD
I have one, the fan sucks. But Looks good in the Arc Midi R2

Was amazed today by the Fractal Design Define Mini...
I built the system 4 sep. 2011. untouched, no dust from filters removed etc, no temp problems, this is what it looked like today when I opened the side door:


Case contains:
Asus P8P67-M B3
Intel Core i7 2600
Corsair Vengeance 2x4GB
Asus GTX 560Ti DCII
OCZ ModXstream Pro 700w (beware of extreamly short PCI cables)
Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB
Seriel Port PCI adapter

The only place I could find dust was ontop of the PSU.
The case is amazing, I was thinking someone else cleaned it, but I doubt my grandparents(who own this rig) would ever touch it. And I was right, no one has opened the case Since I built it. Im just amazed by this case. Does all the Define cases have theese EPIC dust filters?

The Arc Midi R2 has the real mesh padded filters in front and top. In your case I see the drives are only in the top cage. I would move it to lower and remove the top cage completely, to give more airflow from the front fan with no restrictions.

I mounted mine up top upside down where the 5.25" bay used to be. I used HDD screws and the rubber "spacers" that are on the 3.5" brackets. I can't hear it at all and unless you open the case and put your head almost inside you won't even know it is there.

It's was easy to do and I didn't have to mod anything or give a penny to anyone thumb.gif

Heh yeah, its a true beast. It does run BF3 with okay FPS tongue.gif He is playing single player first person games with good stories, so therfore the GPU tongue.gif
The CPU was on sale, I was first thinking a i5, but the i7 was more or less the same price at the time smile.gif
post #8580 of 15929
I envied those blue led on - other than white - define R4 so I put one onto mine tongue.gif

I left the red one for HDD activity, though. Purple look when both on:

Next step is the white tubing; when I receive them.
