Fractal Design ARC XL
They're suspended on bungee cord. I removed the drive rails and laced up bungee through the drive cage to create a double-X pattern.looks good man! how do you got your hd's rigged in there? thats my biggest issue with my case is the hd's transfer noise right into my desk like a speaker box.
Frozen CPU has a good selection and they are a pretty reputable site.Anyone know of a good place to buy molex power adapters?
My sound card needs an FDD power connector, so I ended up running an entire extra cable from my modular PSU to support it... not exactly clean (especially with the limited room behind the motherboard tray on the R3).
I have spare SATA power connectors nearby, so an adapter like this would work:
Just needs to be a bit longer (and preferably pre-sleeved, in black). Can't find anyone selling such a thing, though.
Agree! The design is so simple and understated and it realty stands out among all of the other case manufacturers and their odd shapes and designs.Upon seeing this threads posts about this brand, I decided on getting the Fractal R4 windowed...I absolutely love the case.
The annoying thing is, is that you have to take the motherboard out to get to the screws to add the SSD's to the back of the MB Tray.Feel like I just won the golden yellow crash helmet award. It never occured to me to stash my ssd's on the back of my mobo try like that. Thanks for the pic.
Here's why I kept it in (see below pic), it's because I added my WD Red 3TB's. I need to get a proper camera sometime soon, take some proper pictures, looks immense with the side panel on and the GPU/CPU lighten up in green especially with the side panel being smoked.^ You should mount that Hard Drive and SSD in your 5.25 inch bay and take that HDD rack out.
