Perfect Case

Richard F., Newegg
6 March 2013
  • Summary: Very hard to find. Either out-of-stock or discontinued, but looks like Fractal has newer version, the R2.
  • Pros: Cable Management, great cooling, silent, fan controller, removable HDD case, and lots of room for long video cards and tall HSFs. Fan controller is easy to install, takes up no room in case, and allows adding two more fans, if so inclined.
  • Cons: None.

Wow.

Timothy M., Newegg
26 December 2012
  • Summary: USB and Power button is located in convenient spot if PC is located on ground or below eye level.
  • Pros: This is the case I have been looking for for some time now. Full ATX case that has the ability to fit anything you want in it. Air filter help tremendously to keep dust out of the case and PSU. Craftsmanship is superb.
  • Cons: Bottom HD bays has one screw that is slightly to long if a HardDrive is installed in the top slot. I just took pliers and clipped it off and now it works fine. The fans that are included are pretty low quality but so far I have not had any issues.

Great but understated.

Robert C., Newegg
6 December 2012
  • Summary: Just a beautiful case. Solid, understated, roomy, functional. Perfect for those who don't care about loud, obnoxious, bling. Perfect for deployment at client sites, etc. I can't think of a better case in the $60-$70 area, and I've tried many, many, cases.
  • Pros: High quality
  • Cons: Understated, if that's a "con" to some.

My first "highish end" case is REAL niice

William W., Newegg
6 December 2012
  • Pros: So this is what I've been missing! The space! It's so wide. It looks beastly, but in an understated high-quality way. And the cable managment! I just wanted to get everything tested so I didn't do a great job, but this weekend (now that I know how everything fits), I'll put it all in right! And t...
  • Cons: Without a fan controller, the fans could be a little loud. My front intake fan didn't work!!! Not worth an RMA though. I got if for a deal anyway.

Solid Case

Danielle N., Newegg
6 December 2012
  • Summary: While not con and more of an issue with the PSU, I had to route the 8 pin CPU power under the GPU through a little slot. I might have been able to route it behind if there was one more grommet above the CPU new the water line grommets, but a longer cable on the PSU would work too.
  • Pros: Solid design with great wire management. While the HDD rack is not tool-less, it is 90 degrees from the GPU which is ideal for maintenance and replacing drives. The stock fans are decent
  • Cons: Minor con: Doesn't come with a door fan, but not a con to take away eggs.

Awesome case!

Clinton H., Newegg
6 December 2012
  • Summary: Would love to see the window panel available already.
  • Pros: $50 with free 3day shipping! Everything is is amazing quality. The harddrive mounts are even metal, over 30 thumbscrews included wow.... The plastic bezel is very high quality aswell. The fans are all sleeved wow, 1 inch of cable space behind the motherboard, the case is just sexy.
  • Cons: only con is the side panels aren't flush against the front bezel but I think this was intended.

Exactly what I Needed

Todd S., Newegg
5 December 2012
  • Summary: Great, great case for the price. But yes, you should expect some very minor flaws in workmanship because of this.
  • Pros: It had all the features that I desired in a new case, upgrading from the old Antec Sonata II. Watch the video in the overview section... gives a complete description of this wonderfully designed and cheap case.
  • Cons: For those worried about noise, it is a very open design with all the meshing... so plan accordingly with your choice of coolers. I dialed down some of my fans to bring it to a noise level I was comfortable with. My power switch wouldn't work upon arrival - found that the wires on the back were no...

Arc Midi

Ted H., Newegg
4 December 2012
  • Summary: had a smaller case with 3 120mm case fans and the temps didn't drop on any of my components, but they didn't go up either!
  • Pros: large case, love all the room and options for configurating, removable hdd cage for people using 4 or less hdds/ssds, fans are quiet and large.
  • Cons: the cpu hole does not line up well with an ASRock x58 Extreme6 motherboard, so if you try to change heatsink fan on your cpu, you are going to have a bad time. my screw set only came with 3 motherboard standoffs, this was a problem for me as I had to use them from my old case and now i can't tran...
