Fractal Design's Arc Midi R2 chassis is an elegant chassis with room for a wide range of hardware configurations. Internally the layout is very similar to the Define R4, but the Arc Mini R2 comes with a third fan included by default (with room for three more) and no front door. There are bays just behind the front fans for up to eight 3.5-inch hard drives, with the option to remove some of them if a long video card is being installed. There are also mounts for two 2.5-inch SSDs on the back of the motherboard tray, and two 5.25-inch optical drives or other bay devices. Like many of Fractal Design's other cases, the front connections are located at the top of the case, directly above the front door: two USB 3.0 ports with headphone and mic plugs.

Please note that this case comes with a window on the left side panel.

I really like this case. It has very good airflow, and room for plenty of hard drives. The fans in this case are large (140mm), so they don't need to spin as fast, and therefore can be quieter. This is a great case for those looking for a quality case without a front door. Unlike the other Fractal Design cases, the Arc Midi cases do not come with noise dampening material built-in.

I really like the look of the Arc Midi. It has a clean design and the fan grilles provide some nice contrast. Internally, the Arc Midi is essentially the same as the Define R4, also from Fractal, with 2 5.25" expansion bays and vibration-dampening hard drive trays. However, the Arc Midi has a much more open design with a vented top and no front door. This improves airflow, but also means less noise dampening--something to keep in mind when selecting components.
