[citation][nom]noobzilla771[/nom]Simple and elegant. About time they release the windowed version (not a fan of side fans).[/citation]
I was just about to say the opposite. Although the previous Arc Midi does have the space for a side fan, it would be nice if one was included by default.
They make great simple cases, great for living room PC since they don't have gaudy lights and run both cool and quiet. I'm considering using an Arc Mini in my upcomming living room build; small, clean, cool running, and quiet, perfect for what I need.
[citation][nom]brickman[/nom]I actually like this case. I wonder if it would be a worthy upgrade from the bulky Corsair 600T?[/citation]
I love my 600T but I do regret not checking it out in person first, it's huge. I'm going small on the next build, most likely mini-itx.
[citation][nom]danny2000[/nom]Boring. This looks like something that you would hide; nothing that makes you say "cool!!!".[/citation]
this is for people that are tired of over designed ugly cases that are all too common. i have 2 fractal cases and i can testify that they are well designed, this makes the already popular Arc Midi even better. my only beef with fractal is that they dont have tool-less hard drive solutions, but i can get over that with the overall awesome design that they employ, hopefully the r3 revision of this case will be more tool-less
I have the previous version (the Arc Midi) and I love everything about it apart from the space for the side-fan. I just cut a square of metal and filled in the screw holes with some white filler and it looks great. The case is perfect, in my opinion.
It looks kind of boring, very functional but boring. Looks like there will be some ability to customize your drive layout, but that just seemed excessive with the number they are providing. But I agree with the top post, this baby better have dust covers.
It looks like it will get the job done however, it just won't look good doing it.
[citation][nom]kinggremlin[/nom]It does, but if you leave your computer running 24-7, you shouldn't need any since top fans are always exhaust fans.[/citation]
They're not always exhaust. I use mine as intake for positive pressure.
