Fractal Design Arc Midi Tower Case Review Comment Thread
 
Fractal Design's Arc is billed as a new take on the classic inexpensive mid tower design and from the looks of things, it does differ quite a bit from the competition. With an extra wide body, a massive number of fan mounts and a great looking black / white color scheme, this $109 case is certainly unique in its own right.

Side mount is identified in the voiceover as accommodating 180/140 mm fans, but the graphic shows 180/120 mm mounts.

It's a really good case for the money, I am using one right now

Thanks for pointing that out! The correct fan support is 140/180!

Agreed. IMO, its almost as quiet as its big brother the R3. Great cable management. Although, im not to keen about the front fans holder. It seems to only except Fractal Design 140mm fans. My Xigmatek fans wouldnt work.

It's pretty much impossible to find the perfect case. I love the Arc Midi but I want easier filter access and traditional screw-in front fans. Anyone have any suggestions?

I used the Arc Midi for my battlefield 3 build, http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...d-today-5.html

i believe on the case main structure, there are fan anchor holes to remove the fans from the front panel capture and move them to the main structure.
