    Today we take a look at the Fractal Design Arc XL chassis, it is a notch bigger and better as far as we are concerned. This all black and white chassis comes with plenty of cooling options, great desi...

    Looks like a great case, Hilbert. It's nice to see a trend where cases have more options for an affordable price.

    Finally... The front I/O panel is in the right place for a case of that size. The case won't be sitting on a desktop because it is so large, but on the floor. You'll be looking down on it. I give this one a thumbs up.

    That's one seriously good looking case. It might just be my next case.

    Quoted from the review 'there is no reset button though'. Also saw this in the Arc Midi R2 review. Typo?

    There is so much place inside, perfect for water cooling and nice mods. Also the price is ok

    Almost bought this but went with the Thermaltake Core V71 instead I like how the hard drives and ssd can be installed out of the way behind the mother-board in the cable routing area, my cards now get unrestricted air flow.

    The R4 is also nice, but to small for me.
    The window from the ARC XL is to dark, not optimal for modding. You must put a lot of light inside

    I'd highly recommend the cases made by Fractal Design from my personal experience. Absolutely outstanding stuff.
