Fractal Design ARC Mini R2 Case Reviewed

Recommended Posts

I have the Fractal Design ARC Midi case here and the quality is certainly there.

This one looks like it would be just right for the build I'm planning for my wife.

 

Thanks for the great review Isaiah.

no problem :)

 

Even before I got the first case , fractal design already have a good rep for quality. I haven't taken a look at the midi yet or the other series . I'm Sure I wouldn't be disappointed if I ever get it to review. You never know though until you have it in person .

This is the ARC Midi interior.   I feel so stupid. This is not the ARC Midi case, its a Rosewill Blackhawk.

 

I removed all of the fans and put matching 140mm & 120mm Enermax TB Silence fans inside of it.

Lots of room inside and removable HDD Cage makes more room for GPUs too.

This is (really) the ARC Midi case interior with one of the HDD bays removed.

The offset Fan placement at the top of this case allowed me to run four Cougar Vortex PWM fans in a push/pull configuration without hitting the motherboard's heatsinks. Temps on the FX-8350 are nice and cool. The case's airflow is excellent.

I have since moved these two HD-7870s to the i7-2600 box.
