Can anyone recommend some red cables to highlight the case. Which cables would I need, are they called adapters? I'm thinking of taking out the optical drive, don't really need it and it adds more cable.

Any advice would be welcome. It is a Fractal Design Arc Midi R2.

Sorry for Cell phone quality and lighting:

Pick up some NZXT sleeved extensions.

That's what I have used in all of my builds, looks fairly clean!

I just bought a new video card and some RAM. Now I can't decide if I should take out the top HDD cage on my Define R4.

This looks awesome! Love the front panel and psu cover especially.

What fan controller is in the 3.5" drive bay? Been looking for something like that for one of my rigs.

You should definitively remove it, more airflow toward your GPU smile.gif

Hey everyone,

I'm going to get a Arc Midi R2 (here's my config : http://www.ldlc.com/b-ad9cf216f2a55ce5.html french website but prices in euro).

Should I get fan replacements ? I'm tempted by either 3 (or 4 with twin packs?) AF120 Quiet Editions (they're pretty cheap as well) or 3 AF140 Quiet Editions or even cheaper 3 or 4 Cougar CF-T14S ?

Are any of these options worth it over the stock fans which according to Hardware.fr are not that good (http://www.hardware.fr/medias/photos_news/00/40/IMG0040249.png compared to be-quiet Shadow Wings i think).

Also what would be the best fan arrangement for my config, I doubt 1 intake out of 3 fans is optimal, so should I go for either 1 intake in the front, 1 at the bottom, 1 outtake at the top / bottom ? What improvement would get from 4 fans vs 3 ?

Thanks biggrin.gif

EDIT : Btw, I'll remove the top HDD bay, and will get a Samsung SSD on amazon (coz cheaper smile.gif ). Also, all the fans are going to run at 7V using the built-in fan controller (and I have some left-over Noctua LNA adapters just in case).
