After the run away success of the R3 Fractal are back with a new midtower chassis. Can they really better the orignal design?

I thought in photos the Arc looked great and smart in the usual Fractal Design way, but the review opened up even greater detail into the details Fractal managed to work in. Excellent chassis review as per usual.

Edit: I'd happily pick this free breathing Fractal case over the Coolermaster HAF mid towers.

Very tempted to go for the ATX version after seeing the vid for the midi last night but then again I might just go for the Midi but I think i'll wait till after the review of the ATX version before deciding

Dude, you said that this is the best wc mid tower. Why do you rate it over the 690, as that can take 2*240 rads? Do you think they missed a trick here, in that if they allowed all the drive cages to be removed you could have mounted a rad in the front or on the floor?

this is one of the best water cooling mid tower cases I have seen for some time, as for the fan in the side panel is to improve the air flow for the radiator which will be sucking air out of the inside of the case and if you test the case without the fan on the side panel (window only) you will find a big difference in the cooling performance of the loop, I have actually tried this with the coolermaster cases and the reason for this is there is not enough air coming in the case from the fans in front of the case which pass through the hard drive cage which reduces the air flow by a 1/2 and I think the best option will be to put a window and a side fan like the HAF X which will make this case god like.
