Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 Case Review


For the first time we are about to review a product coming from Fractal Design. What's the reason why we are excited about this? Well, Fractal Design is one of the most talked about brand on most forums when it comes to cases. Being somewhat of a newer company, this is saying a lot especially when you have companies like Corsair, Lian Li and others out there which are larger as they are also experienced.

Once we got the call from John at Fractal Design about starting a review partnership, one of the first things I did was run over to their website and took a look at their entire lineup. Next was a big fat YES, we would love to review some Fractal Design gear. Take a look at their products yourself. You will see nothing but style, sleekness, classy and simplistic cases.

So, jumping into the first product, we will bring to you will be the new Arc Midi R2. This particular case is an improvement over of an older R2 case or a revision it. The mid tower is geared for individuals looking for style on the outside but able to build the essence of a gamer rig on the inside. Designed with unparalleled cooling, space and various other aspects, we have a feeling that the Arc Midi could be one of the best cases out today.

Fractal Design's take on the Arc Midi R2

The Arc Midi R2 is developed with high-performance computer systems in mind. Featuring three high performance Silent Series R2 fans and ample water cooling options, the Arc Midi R2 layout maximizes airflow throughout the case and keeps even the most demanding systems at cool temperatures. Designed to house even the thickest radiators in both the top and front panels without extensive modifications, the Arc Midi R2 offers all this within a mid size case.

The chassis comes complete with a stylish window side panel, fan controller, easy to clean dust filters, high level of workmanship, flexible hard drive mounting system and plenty of space for cable routing.
