post #9771 of 16136
Hey guys! Looking at buying a Fractal Design case. Newegg has a good deal on the Midi R2 for about $83 with free shipping. I do like the Mini R2 a lot though, do yall think that they will be offering a coupon code and free shipping for the Mini R2 this month like they are with the Midi R2 right now?

Yeah I've got both of my SSDs installed behind the mobo tray already, and I'll probably just put my two HDDs in the ODD bay.

But I was looking at failwheeldrive's Arc Midi build, and he's got a 60mm rad up top in pull....looks fine to me:

Nice! It does look like a good case, there's a MicroCenter near where I live, might have to pay em a visit tomorrow. I'm thinking the chances of Newegg offering a deal on the Mini R2 is pretty slim though since it came out recently.

I need to get rid of my Antec 1200. Thing is stupid huge. Can't believe I use to like cases like this lol. I'll have to turn it into a backstop for the shooting range.

I like to show off my blocks tho wink.gif. I have a ram block and a 60mm wouldn't have fit with that in there.

Also that wouldn't be pull config unless he is exhausting which is not the best to do with rads... especially around the mb. It doesn't look like the fans are under the rad

Yeah, that's why I said I'll probably do a push config. up top, which is how failwheeldrive did his I believe.

I don't plan on using a ram block, and I'm using super low profile crucial ballistix sticks so I doubt clearance will be an issue.

hey there

I bought my Define XL R2 about a month ago (posted a picture here) and now I am wondering - is there any place I can buy a side panel window for it ?

I love the sound dampening material but I would love more if I can see inside of my case through some big window window like on Corsair 750D / 800D / 900D.

I cant find it anywhere.

Thanks

I don't know of one (doesn't mean there isn't one as someone else may know of something)....you could always mod your own in there. It is really not too hard of a mod to do. mnpctech has kits instructionals and kits even if you are interested
