post #8681 of 16135
Hey guys,

Anyone here have a mini ITX mobo installed in the Arc Mini and could post a pic? I'm thinking about changing from the Bitfenix Prodigy to the Mini. I know the mobo will fit, but I am trying to get a good visual before I order the case.

I'm using the Asus P8Z77-I Deluxe motherboard.

Yeah, the tube from the res to the rad is like that because I had a shorter tube, and it didn't allow me to pull out the res to fill/drain. But in about 2 months, I'm getting rid of the res/pump and using something that doesn't go in the drive bay. Then, I'll use right angle fittings to make it look much better.

As for the light, I'm using 1 Bitfenix Alchemy 30cm White led strip. Pretty expensive, but it gives me even lighting. The glue sucked, so I put my own on it, now its snug.

Coolant is EC6. When I drain and add different bay/res and start cooling the gpus (no blocks for the vapor-x unfortunately), I'll be switching to Mayhems.

..and I just scratched my front panel when I was trying to cut off the tabs. mad.gif Guess I will leave it for now although it is killing me just thinking about it.

Any news on any new FD cases? Haven't been keeping track of any new updates.

Cut off the tabs ? Which "tabs" ?
I thought you were just switching the stock fans out for Noctuas.

Oh and btw, the N14-FLX (or are they called P14-FLX ?) Noctuas use 120mm mounting holes. If you'vetaken the time to look at your Midi R2 you'll probably have noticed the 120mm mounting holes up front aren't both centered (in the middle of the 140mm holes, as usually) which means you can't use the 120mm mounting holes up front for two 140mm fans since it was designed to fit a 240mm rad. I
Those Noctuas come with mounting "extensions" that allow for standard 140mm mounting holes to be used.

These 'tabs.'

Nope, I wasn't ever going to change the stock fans for Noctua's. I already have the FLX-A14's for a couple of months now. Great fans. But I don't think that second question was directed towards me. tongue.gif

Does anyone have news or an idea, when the Arc Mini R2 is going to be release in the US? Excited, but my build is waiting on this thing.

Waiting too. And I need it soon! I'm going back to school and I don't want my PC on a box again!

I've had no dust filters and within a week, everything was covered, black has a slight whitish look.

I also have great temps, but running at low speed. More load faster speeds. All PWM, which is nice.
I use the Bitfenix Alchemy Strips White 30cm. One on the bottom and one on top behind fans. Gives a nice look.

What connectors do they use? Was thinking of pairing up with Scythe Kaze Master II Fan controller to help control the luminuous...
