Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 Review

A few weeks ago we had quite a bit of fun with Fractal Design’s Arc Mini R2, filling the hugely flexible mATX based chassis with high end components and multi-radiator water-cooling. Our experience with Fractal kit extends back some way though including the Arc Midi which housed loads of storage in our Home Server build back in 2011. Recently Fractal Design took the popular Arc Midi and tweaked its design, releasing it as the Arc Midi R2. Today we take a look at the R2 to find out how Fractal can build on their impressive first vision.

Packaging and Bundle

Fractal Design give us a fairly familiar box design for this case with some basic product info and an outline drawing of the chassis design. Inside we find the R2 suspended in foam and wrapped in plastic for added protection.

Bundled with the case is a short manual along with a box which contains the various screws and extras for installing our components.
