Fractal Design Arc Midi R2

10 July 2013
  • Summary: One may wonder what the changes to the chassis are at first--when looking at both the Arc Midi and Arc Midi R2 side by side. There are ultimately numerous differences, but some are more obvious than others. The more obvious ones are the R2's side window and the small, stylish logo that replaced the large one. The latter is not only a move to please end users, but clearly also system integrators who may want to replace the smaller company logo with their own, for example.
  • Pros: Fan controller now built-in, Now with a windowed side panel, Extremely flexible hard-drive cage placement, Subtle logo replaces the large one, Space for eight HDDs, 240 mm radiator fits into ceiling and the front of the chassis, Both 5.25" bays can still be used when installing a 240 mm radiator--just keep things slim and short, Rubber-mounted hard drives, Three 140 mm fans included, Freedom to install 180 mm fans in side and ceiling, Updated USB 3.0 cable with 2.0 le...
  • Cons: No more 3.5" adapter for external drive bays, Fans not the quietest, Plastic front (pictures may be misleading)

Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 Case Review

19 June 2013
  • Excerpt: 13 Flares 13 Flares × Today we are going to take a look at the Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 which directly replaces the Arc Midi case that  we looked at in-depth last year over here .  The Arc range of cases are designed with performance users in mind as they don’t focus specifically on noise suppression like Fractal’s original define range, focusing on cooling performance instead.

Fractal Design Arc Midi R2

Technic 3D
4 September 2013
  • Summary: In diesem Review prüfen wir das Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 auf Herz und Nieren. Die zweite Revision des Arc Midis setzt das Konzept der Baureihe fort, welches hauptsächlich auf einer hohen Kühlleistung basiert. Selbst absolute Highend-Hardware soll gut gekühlt werden können. Selbstverständlich kann auch eine Wasserkühlung mit mehreren Radiatoren verbaut werden.
  • Pros: Dezentes Design, Viele Lüfterplätze, Lüftersteuerung integriert, Modularer und voluminöser Innenraum, Bis zu zehn Laufwerke verbaubar, Gutes Kabelmanagementsystem, Wasserkühlung mit zwei großen Radiatoren kann installiert werden, Verarbeitungsqualität
  • Cons: Kein Werkzeugloses Befestigungssystem für 5,25-Zoll-Laufwerke
