Removing the side panel reveals with black interior with white accents on the fans, hard drive trays and expansion slots. Like I mentioned before, in addition to the bottom mounted PSU slot which also has a pad for vibration reduction, there is room for a 120/140mm fan.
Moving up the rear of the case are your 7+1 white, slotted and reusable expansion slot covers and your top/rear 140mm fans.
Towards the front of the case are your two hard drive cages, both which house 4 drives. The top cage can actually be removed either for additional room for graphics cards or to switch it and face it parallel with the case, rather than its default perpendicular position.
In addition to the hard drive trays locking into position, each tray is also secured to the drive cage with a thumbscrew. Each white drive tray has four rubber grommets which allow you to either install a 3.5” drive from the bottom or use the four smaller holes for a 2.5” drive. At first I thought the drivers were going to be installed without any tools, but this doesn’t seem to be the case.
Removing the hard drive cage gives you visibility of the front 140mm fan. This case also has your typical connections to hook up to your motherboard and also has a motherboard connection for the front USB 3.0 port, unlike other cases which just use a regular USB 3.0 connection to hook up to the outside of your motherboard.
Like I mentioned before you only have 2 external 5.25” drive bays. However you can actually use one of the slots for an external 3.5” device if you so choose.
The Fractal Arc has a lot of cable management features, as you can see from just looking at the motherboard tray. There are a total of five places you can send your cables through to the back of the motherboard tray and plenty of places on the back to tie them down. You also have a large CPU cooler cutout on the tray, making it easier to swap CPU coolers.
The parts for the case come in a nice little box, which tells you everything that’s inside. Inside you have all of your necessary hardware, fan controller, two cable ties, and a 5.25” to 3.5” adapter cover for the front panel.
