Fractal Design Arc Midi Tower Case Review
Fractal Design is a relatively new entrant into the PC enclosure market and for the most part, their designs have been well received. The Define series set the pace with a successful focus upon putting simplicity before niche appeal and gaudy looks. Several other cases were released in quick succession, all following the same mantra of putting function over form and Fractal’s newest case may look like more of the same but they’ve thrown in a bit of a curve ball.
The Arc series follows two distinct lines: a mini tower and what they call a “midi” design which is something between a mid tower case and a slightly smaller form factor. For anyone that wants a mid tower but has limited space, the Arc midi may be the perfect enclosure since it combines a subtle design with a ton of cooling options and a great price of under $110. Fractal has also kicked things up a notch by increasing the depth, giving this case a unique profile and plenty of room to work in.
