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


hey just for reference, as I use a different case, bu there is a shot of the front face of the optical drive holder. This thing really is awesome, so sleek and stealthy. I have the Silverstone dvd drive in there and an OCZ Vector 256gb. Get 1 or 2 of those custom made cable that are the T style for Sata. something like this. http://www.moddiy.com/products/4%252dPin-Molex-to-2-x-SATA-Power-Adapter.html

If you want to use sata connectors Silverstone has an extension that is similar:

I have the four plug version for my server. You can actually take the plugs off your self mount to back of drive and push down the wires again which will cut new connections for a perfect fit. You would probably want to sleeve it as well so that the old teeth cuts are hidden.

Yeah i really like it, i got mine today and installed it in the R2, it was just a quick installation without all screws attached so it isn't the best aligned as I could probably do but atleast youn can see how it eventually would look like.

Excuse me for the crappy pictures my iphone's camera is heavyily damaged and my digital camera's battery charger is also dead:p





I have no idea why my pictures are uploaded rotated sideways, they are normal on my computer.thinking.gif

So got around to putting everything in my newly arrrived Define XL R2. What a joy to work with, plenty of space and no problems at all. Here are some pics, not the best as I only have my camera phone. I think it turned out ok, and it is definetly more quiet than my Raven R02, though compared to how many fans were in that thing maybe not quite as much as I would like. I think its the H100i making this reverberating, and slightly high pitched sound. Oh well, it´s still a lot quiter than before. thumb.gif

So I got my b-gears Blaster 140mm fans in with 3.5mmH2O static pressure and mounted them in PULL pulling air from outside in through the radiator, and I have cooler temps by a few degress both idle and load. I don't have the room to mount the fans in push or push/pull. I was then able to move my HDD cage inward and mount a bottom fan for an intake, most importantly, to keep my GPU cool, because it was running warm with my last setup. Only exhaust is my rear 140mm fan. The radiator is NOT mounted properly in the correct mounting holes. In order to make everything fit I only used 3 mounting holes on the radiator. It's a pretty tight fit even without the screws so it's not going anywhere.

Any news on the Arc Mini R2?

It's such a beast of a mATX case, I can barely find mid tower cases that fit that much water cooling hardware let alone other mATX cases....

I emailed their NA sales department a few weeks ago and they told me it would be available in "early October", so it should be soon.

Has anybody with the XL R2 been able to get the power/hdd LED to work? I´ve tried all combinations of connecting those two pins but nothing seems to make that LED light up...

The Define R4 (same as your XL R2, just smaller) dont come with HDD activity leads, its just power on. The Arc Midi R2 does have the cabling and the led to report activity on the hdds. But i guess you could mod it to have it if thats something you need to have.

it says in the manual that it can be either for power on LED or for hdd activity, either way neither works for me.
