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.
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.
Upon seeing this threads posts about this brand, I decided on getting the Fractal R4 windowed...I absolutely love the case.
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.
^ You should mount that Hard Drive and SSD in your 5.25 inch bay and take that HDD rack out.
