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.

Cons: No USB 3.0 adapter for use on USB 2.0 mainboard, Side opening has no dust filter, Fans not the quietest, Plastic front, pictures may be misleading
