I would like to thank Fractal Design for providing the review sample.
Most of you may not know Fractal Design, but the company has been making a splash with their unique enclosures at a competitive price. The company also sells power supplies, case fans, and a few accessories.
Not much else to say really, but this is their official vision:
Our vision is to have a constant, healthy growth together with our partners worldwide. Our goal is to be widely recognized for our designed products and to have them available in all major market regions within EU and US. We should be a good alternative to the already established retail brands of today. It's of great importance for us that our partners understand the values of Fractal Design; therefore we are putting great effort into choosing the right partners from the start. We will work actively to maintain sales territories and profitable business for our partners.
Today, we are taking a look at the second generation Arc Midi chassis that is also available as the Mini R2 version. These cases are for users who water cool their system with one or more radiators inside the chassis.
