  • Pinag iisipan ko pa kung Fractal arc mini r2 or corsair 350d, next week na ako bi2li...kalma muna...hahahaha!
  • arc mini r2 ako, parang ATX size na ang 350d eh, konti na lang. haha

    dapat gumawa sila ng arc mini mini eh, parang core 1000 ang size :D
  • @gj21,
    either way, panalo ka parin. parehong maganda naman yang pinagpipilian mo e.
  • yes sir, napansin ko din na may fan controller ang arc mini r2 up to 3 fans, 5v 7v 12v, mahaba ang bottom dust filter, smoked window sa side panel, 2 ssd's can install behind the mobo tray

    Ang hirap niyan sir, both are very good Micro-ATX cases :-)

    Some things to consider about the Fractal Arc Mini R2

    - Tinted window: When PC is off you have a black side panel. Turn on the PC and you see the internals which is a cool effect.
    - Grilled front panel: Less restrictive for front mounted fans but tends to look dirty once dust accumulates on the front grill.
    - Integrated fan controller: Very useful feature no need to buy a fan controller that will occupy a drive bay.
    - Very watercooling friendly: Especially for the top panel since there is adequate space between the radiator and the motherboard.
    - Front panel only supports 120mm fans.
    - Rear panel only has 4 PCI-E slots: This restricts you to using only 2-slot wide videocards when going 2-way SLI or Crossfire.

    Some things to consider about the Corsair Obsidian 350D

    - Larger case window: For showing off more of your components.
    - Clean looking front panel: Front panel shields you from fan noise and is elegant looking but is slightly restrictive for airflow.
    - 140mm fan support on both front and top panels: You can use bigger fans that run at lower RPM's for less noise without sacrificing airflow.
    - Rear panel has 5 PCI-E slots: For better support of thicker videocards in 2-way SLI or Crossfire setups.
    - Watercooling support is good for 240mm AIO units. Thicker radiators are more difficult to install on top panel.

    Para sa akin personal preference ko ang Corsair Obsidian 350D because of the bigger fans, 5 PCI-E slots, and overall aesthetics. But for watercooling mas maganda talaga ang Fractal Arc Mini R2. Tignan mo nalang kung anong case ang mas fit sa needs mo :-)
  • @sleepygeepy,

    thanks sir, nag check din ako ng reviews kay idol linustechtips between 2 cases, can't wait to buy next week

  • ^if you plan on water cooling soon... you can't go wrong with those two mentioned above.

    master, ASrock z87M OC formula? love at first site ako sa mobo na yan - target ko next upgrade, kumusta onboard audio? currently using g1 sniper m3 and very satisfied sa onboard audio nya. before deciding to upgrade I want to make sure lang kung same sound quality or better... TIA.

    up ko lang question ko.

    or anyone has 1st hand experience ng onboard sound? salamat again.
  • sorry malaki pala

    if I may add lang, things you may consider lang naman.


    -has 5 expansion slots - advantage para sa mga mobos (rampage IV gene, g1 sniper m3 and m5, etc) na ang PCIe layout nya is yung lower GPU(in a crossfire/SLI) occupies a 5th expansion slot. for me that's a plus kasi more breathing room sa upper gpu. kasi nga may gap na one lane yung dalawang GPU. which is a common issue for crossfire/SLI in some matx boards (maximus gene series, asrock z87oc formula, etc) the upper gpu usually chokes.

    -top panel has room for 280rad - if you got yourself a 240 rad medyo awkward tignan yung 350d from the top (aesthetics lang naman yun nothing to do with function) and it partly occupies the upper 3.5drive bay.

    Arc Mini R2

    -for me this case has covered almost all of what most enthusiast wanted in a matx case. just beautiful

  • mga mATX users, may alam kayong mATX mobo na kaya yung mga AMD FX at may usb3.0?

    mga mATX users, may alam kayong mATX mobo na kaya yung mga AMD FX at may usb3.0?

    Try looking for the ASUS M5A88-M EVO motherboard. However it throttles when used with 8-core FX processors, so it's recommended you use it only with FX-6300 or FX-4300.
  • hirap pala maghanap ng case pag exclude ko yung mga usual cases na gusto ko like tj08/ps07 xD
  • @ pawixkhan

    onboard sound is OK although abit mahina ang output nya. i still prefer the sound of the legendary bang-for-the-buck ENMA DAC :P
