I was a bit skeptical at first since I never heard of the brand Fractal Design before, but I have to say I’m really impressed with this case. I was truly not expecting anything fantastic from a company that’s not well known. I’m very impressed with the Fractal Arc Midi Tower case. It’s large enough to give you room to work with inside of the case. The large amount of room also makes it nice for the included three 140mm fans or the additional 5 that you can install yourself.
This case has a lot of nice features for it and will definitely last several years. It’s clearly made of high quality materials and is one of the best cases I’ve ever seen. There really isn’t anything bad I can say about this case, other than that the hard drives don’t have a tool-free install. However the rubber grommets and removable/movable drive cage make up for that.
If I wasn’t replacing my case all the time (for all the reviews I do), this would definitely be a keeper case. It has a higher price tag, found at my favorite retailer for $99.99, but it is certainly worth the money, especially when you compare it to cases of similar price from major brands. If this is what Fractal Design has in store for us, then other companies should watch out. ThinkComputers would like to award the Fractal Design Arc Midi Tower Case a 10 out of 10 score and our Editor’s Choice Award.
