    Yeah, sorry, it wasn't there when I loaded the page. Interesting choice of case though. Hope it'll serve you well.

    I've had an ARC Midi R2 for about a year now.
    Easily the best case I have ever used. I love it.
    You chose well!

    It's going to look damn slick with my black/red motherboard, black/red GPU, water cooler, black ram, etc. I'm so excited. My case should be here within a couple of hours.

    I've been considering one for my Minecraft server, as the HAF X, while more than sufficient enough, is just too damn big and bulky. I could easily hide the server if it was in an Arc.

    I've worked with my Fractal Design Define R4 enough times to know how great Fractal cases are to own and work with.

    Define R4's build quality is the same.
    They don't differ hugely from each other to be honest, which I'm sure you know.
    They're both solid cases, made by a solid manufacturer.

    If it's for a server.. Why not get the silent optimised case in the Define R4 so it can be hidden away silently?

    I have next to no fans going in the thing, and any fans that are going are spinning very slowly, but most are not plugged in, because honestly, JUST Minecraft server running on a Windows 7 system with an i7-920 and (lol an ATi 4850 or 4870) with an Arctic cooler on it? It runs cool and thus quiet.

    Ah, alas, the light sound from the furnace/water heater/air conditioner/sump pump which are all about 15 feet away here in the basement, are louder.

    In other words, stop breaking shit with your fat ass.

    My current build is about 7 months old. Didnt have a ton to spend, but it is still light years faster than my old setup.

    OLD SETUP: Core i7 970
    2 GTX 460 768mb cards in SLI
    1tb hdd at 7200 rpms
    16gb of ddr3 1600 ram
    Asus sabertooth x58 mobo
    Corsair 750 w psu

    I still use that system to Edit and encode HD video for work, as the only real point in having the 6 proc 12 thread setup was to do just that.

    My new gaming rig is:
    core i5 4670k Ocd to 4ghz
    8gb of ddr3 1600 ram
    250gb kingston SSD for OS and the main games I play
    1tb hdd 7200 rpm WD drive for storage and shit
    2 gtx 2gb 760s in sli
    Asrock gaming mobo. cant remember model atm.
    Corsair tx750 psu (new one with smart fan control)

    Runs games great on max settings on my 27 inc LED dual monitor setup

    I would never go for hard tubing myself, because while it does look much better, I'd make such a failure out of it.

    Looks really nice, as nice as your corner in general.

    That's very much what I'm going for. Although a diff colour scheme, never been a fan of white tubing although that build is so well done it doesn't really matter. I'm thinking red/black with dark orange tubing/water. Or just red/black.

    Picking up an i7 4790k, asus hero and 32gb corsair vengence pro 2133mhz later on today. After seeing the price of ddr4 I've decided not to go 2011.
