Awful build quality

Steven S., Newegg
14 January 2013
  • Pros: Nice Looking
  • Cons: The quality of the case, the provided screws/standoffs, and the fans are all abysmal. I thought I could at least expect some parity in build quality coming from an antec 300. This case rattles, and doesn't quite fit together.

Fractal Design Arc Midi - Great Case Overall, No Major Cons

Oliver1234, Overclock
30 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Working with this case has been a dream! When I first took the case out of the box, I was amazed by the sturdiness of this case compared to how light it was. Almost everything that was meant to be taken apart (side panels, PSU Bracket, Top) used nice Black thumbscrews.

Missing Mobo standoffs

Tyler S., Newegg
25 December 2012
  • Pros: Great case for the money, TONS of room and TONS of features
  • Cons: Arrived missing the Motherboard standoffs. Its not that hard to count to nine. Eggs off for that. Very poor quality control and basic mathematics from the manufacture.

Selling mine

Douglas H., Newegg
13 October 2012
  • Pros: none. since I don't want it.
  • Cons: Well, I read the reviews...but I think I missed the part that this case is HUGE! It can't fit in my deskspace. Can't RMA because shipping is ~45 bux. So if anyone is in central new jersey, best offer can have it. Brand new. Never used. Thanks for nothing newegg.

2 Bad Cases in a Row

ANTONIO L., Newegg
11 May 2012
  • Summary: Chose to return this one, and besides losing time and money with the client, Newegg kept the shipping charge on a defective product.
  • Pros: Excellent, and well thought out design. Cable management is also really good. Overall, the case is very attractive and has one of the best layouts I've seen in a computer case. Theres plenty of room for quite the array of fans/rads, and hard drives. Comes with all the necessary hardware, and then...
  • Cons: After dealing with Mobo I/O Shield alignment problems with my first Fractal case, I bought another for a client thinking it was an isolated incident, and not only did I have the same problem, but the POWER BUTTON was not functional. That's two defective and identical cases in a row. Again, Fracta...

Possibly the best W/C mid-tower you can get.

sloppyjoe123, Overclock
5 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Aesthetics: The Fractal Arc is obviously different from the Define. The Define takes a more literal approach to sleekness and places a gloss door onto the front. This makes a very eye-catching on any table, and is really nice to look at. The Arc is sleek yes, but differently.
