Maybe Silverstone Air Penetrators AP141 or their FHP141s.

I ended up ordering a pair of bgears b-Blaster 140mm fans with 3.5mm h20 static pressure to mount as pulls on the radiator. The stock Fractal 140mm fans are going either to the top of the case, or the front if I move the radiator. I'll just test them both out. Thanks thumb.gif

Sounds like a strong set of fans. Just make sure if you have the radiator mounted in the front to put a case fan next to the PSU at the bottom to feed some cool air to your GPU. Otherwise the hot air from the front mounted radiator gets recycled by your GPU.

Just a simple question: R4 Define comes with 2 stock fans. One Intake and one Exhaust.

The intake can be used for exhaust right? Because i want to move the intake to top-rear as a exhaust.

Thank you smile.gif

Yes, you'll be fine. That said, I don't think it's a good idea to remove the front exhaust.

I will remove front stock fan and put it as exhaust.

Then install three new intake fans:
2x Noctua a14 FLX 140mm front
1x 140mm r2 silent at bottom

With the radiator and 4 fans attached to it, I have to move the HDD cage inwards which uses the frontmost bottom fan mounting points, so it doesn't really look like I can mount a fan there, at least not using the factory mounting points. If the mounting points weren't elevated it would be much easier. Even though my GPU is running good temps, the GPU fans are definitely working more in my games. Soo, maybe I would be better off with the radiator mounted on top?

i still use the B-Blaster 140 fans and you won't need four (push/pull for that thin of a radiator
of fin density. you might gain 2°-4° temp drop, but the headache of low clearance comes into
play. single set (push or pull) with that strong of a fan (even at 7v) is plenty of flow. i use two
for the intake on a Alphacool UT60 280 and 3x120 for rad exhaust and still have a positive
to combat dust. so two FD R2 or BGears 140 in front panel and two on H110 and your setup.
might change the rear I/O fan to intake to promote some positive for yourself. and 7v on those
fans makes 'em quite and devilish good air-flow.

Just impulse bought this case from a newegg sale a few weeks ago and ran into several problems:

Does the USB port seem ridiculously tight to anyone? on my other cases my USB goes in and out real smooth but on the arc mini it seems like the USB panel is deathgriping my USB drive and i have to use some mild force to pull it out.

also the top fan that came with the case is damaged i think, it isn't sturdy like the fans that came with my other cases. It wobbles when i gently tap it

The mesh part of my top and front panel dont seem completely flush, some of the mesh comes out of the holes

also, whats a good way to stealth the DVD drive bay? i feel like a plastic DVD drive is really going to throw off the sleek aluminium look of the arc mini

I bought a Arc midi R2 last week only they forget to include the accessoires box with all the screws, zipties and mobo standoffs etc frown.gif

I ordered a SilverStone SST-SOD02 DVD Drive, and a SilverStone FP58B in black it can house a slim optical slot loading DVD Drive and up to 4 ssd's or 2,5inch hdd's, I need the space for the hdd's because I'm building a WC setup and want to remove the hard drive cages to fit a reservoir and for increased airflow.

I really like the look of the SilverStone FP58B I think it looks way better then a normal DVD drive in there.

The USB ports on my Arc Mini are also very tight.

And when you say mesh, do you mean the filter? Some of the "hairs" of my front and top filters seem to stick out of holes too.
