Looking to add a side fan still and haven't removed the padding where the fans could be yet.

i wouldn't bother with a sidefan, i'd rather mount that single drive in the top and get rid of the cage, then i'd rather install some proper fans in front and rear smile.gif othen than that, nice wink.gif

I just read that and I actually was thinking of moving the front to side then buying one more and putting it in top. Pretty crazy results though it is different case

Hello all, my current build consists of the first generation Arc Midi. I've had it for close to 3 years now, and it has served my needs amazingly.
I recently moved my drives to the ODD bays with some ordinary brackets and managed to fit my SSD in underneath them.

(Dust filtering works wonders luckily)

Components are:
i7-2600K @ 4.2Ghz
Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3R-B3
MSI 560Ti Twin Frozr 1Gb
8GB Corsair 1600Mhz RAM
OCZ Agility 3 128Gb SSD
1Tb and 2Tb HDD
Noctua C14 Cooler
Auzentech X-Forte soundcard
Enermax NAXN 750w PSU

Sadly, I am looking to upgrade, yet downsize, from my Arc Midi to the Arc Mini R2, with AIO CPU cooling in mind.So I plan to sell off this system to help finance my next system. Thoughts on whether asking for around $1,100 (AUD) is too much?

Nice. I have a define mini and it is indeed tank like. I love mine coming from a much larger (and louder looking and sounding) Lancool K62 case. The only bummer is there is not a side window sad-smiley-002.gif

I don’t mind it too much but now and again id like the option to run with one from time to time. As for the side fan, i took the cover off but haven’t put a fan there, i can see into the case a small amount and the CPU tower cooler is so close to it im getting direct airflow in without the need to fit a fan hence quieter.

..actually you guys might be able to help here..

Does the Arc Midi side panel with window fit the Define Mini ? I read both cases are identical in dimension

Arc Midi Case (WxHxD): 230 x 460 x 515mm
Define Mini Case size (WxHxD): 210 x 395 x 490mm

Nope.

The Arc Midi is roughly the same size as the Define R4.

The Arc Mini is roughly the same size as the Define Mini.

As far as I know they don't make a windowed panel that fit's the Mini series.

Except the Mini R2 but I don't think that is sold separately.

Redid my cable "management" in my Core 1000 as I did some measurements for modding purposes
post #9920 of 16282
hi all! last week i finished assembling my own rig smile.gif

I am using a Core 1000 modded by me
I cutted a hole in the front to fit an 92mm fan just above the 120mm one Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

So, i moved the vertical hd mounting bracket to the other side of the case. I obviously got to drill a couple of new screw holes Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

All components are ready.. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I especially like the ga-78lmt-usb3. This Rev5.0 got awesome colours.
I replaced GeminIIm4 stock fan with an Arctic Cooling F12 Pwm and that's how it appears smile.gifWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Finally I replaced Fractal Design Silent 120mm with a Coolermaster Jetflo 120 Red and sticked a blue led just behind the 92mm one.
That led was power led on an old not used case.
