The door at R3 keeps the case very silent, with no hard drives, low speed fans at idle (including the graphics card) and super silent PSU (Corsair AX850) this system became the first system i can sleep while being directly visible from my bed (so no sound barriers between me and PC). Arc Midi will never be so silent as R3.
Unless you are planing on anything longer than 29cm, then maybe there is a reason to get the Arc Midi. Otherwise, hell no. 29cm is enough for pretty much any card except few exceptions - this is a 27cm Gainward GTX570 Phantom in my case :
Anymore pics? That case looks sooo nice. I can believe Antec has not re-designed their mini p180. Once Fractal comes to the states, it will be a wrap for Antec p series. Fractal will eat up that market share that would be interested in the p series.
I couldn't help myself I ordered the R3 Black Pearl from ++++ Usa for $160 shipped. One question though how much room is their behind the side panel where you would route and hide your wires? On my Lancool PC-K62 case their is probably a good 1 inch of room.
Can you remove that botton fan filter? The one in front of the PSU?
@Temperfied: if you would bother reading the thread, no one from USA cares about them having Define R3 because of their shipping prices . Even me from Europe noticed that.
