Fractal Design Announces Arc Midi R2


We’ve looked a few of Fractal Design’s full sized (server) chassis and always come away impressed with the build quality, layout, and oodles of space for components and storage. There’s always room for improvement so it’s not surprising that every so often another enclosure joins the mix adding more features. Arc Midi R2 which offers a flexible hard drive configuration (orientation can be changed), easy clean dust filters, a high airflow design, and clear side (meh). Assuming this case matches their usual attention to detail and material quality it is a bargin at $109; the downside is that it won’t get here until March. Full PR after the click.

Introducing the Arc Midi R2!

As the newest member of the Arc family of airflow cases, the Arc Midi R2 is developed with high-performance computer systems in mind. Featuring three high performance Silent Series R2 fans and ample water cooling options, the Arc Midi R2 layout maximizes airflow throughout the case and keeps even the most demanding systems at cool temperatures.

The chassis comes complete with a stylish window side panel, fan controller, easy to clean dust filters, high level of workmanship, flexible hard drive mounting system and plenty of space for cable routing.
