Default Fractal Design Arc Mini Review Comment Thread

Fractal Designís lineup of cases runs the gamut from the large to miniscule and their Arc Mini strides within the space between these two extremes. Retailing for just $105, this enclosure combines a compact stature with high quality construction and an attention to detail that puts other manufacturers to shame.

Thanks fro the review. How loud are the fans? I really like this case but I'm torn between going small or having a bigger case with more acoustic insulation.

Fractal's fans are very quiet.

I did a build in their cheap core 1000 mATX case (Fractal Design Core 1000 mATX Computer Case ) and was pleasantly surprised at how nice it turned out for a sub-$50 case. I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for their future cases.

This one certainly takes the quality up a notch and avoids the one main complaint I had about the core 1000 which was the side controls.
