Fractal Design Arc Midi Tower tested

by on12 July 2012



Review: Older case that still beats newcomers

Fractal Design is a company well known for quality designed and manufactured cases. We've had a chance to try out Fractal Design cases on two occasions, Core 3000 and Define R3, and they've left some good impressions, so let's see whether Arc Midi Tower is capable of doing the same. Arc Midi Tower launched in 2011, but since it's one excellent case, it's never to late to review it.
