The Fractal Arc XL is an interesting case, I love the Fractal styling and its overall build quality. The problem is combining that build quality with a case of this size leads to a case that is extremely heavy. Unless you have a specific need for a case...

The Fractal Design XL is awfully close to the design of the ARC Midi R2 but certainly is a nice step up in terms of component size versus installation. The side see-through side panel gives it a little more niche, as well as the curvature and many...

The Fractal Design ARC XL has many of the same features of the ARC Midi R2, and even improves on several of those features, just in a larger case. One of the major improvements was to the 2.5″ SSD mounting behind the motherboard tray. Now using a tray...

Of course, I am a bit partial to this design from its onset, and this is why I actively hunted down the ARC Midi R2 for my backup machine, but I am also looking at this with open eyes. But the same things I loved about the smaller version are found in...

The Arc XL is basically an Arc Midi that has been stretched vertically to give more space for drive bays, cooling and long motherboards. Fractal started with a proven design and only made things better. The feature list is quite extensive and it's all...

There's something about Fractal Design cases that never fails to please. There are few case-makers out there that put as much effort into every facet of design as Fractal; from parts like fans and rubber grommets, down to the packaging of additional...

Let us recap my reasoning and scoring method before diving into the my final words. First I look at what the company is saying it offers. For example, say the company states the case supports large / long graphic cards or ten quiet fans. In this example,...

International Review By Planet 3DNow! on

Mit dem Arc XL erhält der Käufer ein Full Tower Gehäuse in einem unaufdringlichen Design. Einzig das Mesh Gitter in der Front sowie im Deckel und das Fenster im Seitenteil stechen ein wenig ins Auge ohne dabei aufdringlich zu wirken. Die Verarbeitung ist...

Arc XL er, som navnet lyder, stort, hvilket det også bør være, når det er det største kabinet i Fractal Designs Arc serie. Mens mange går efter at bygge en lille og portabel computer, som er let at have med under armen, er der også os andre, som stadig...
