Fractal Design ARC Midi R2 Black Mid Tower Quiet Performance Case with Side Window USB 3.0 w/o PSU is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only one issue This is an excellent case. This is my second Fractal Design chassis and will not be my last. The only reason it lost a star is that the dimensions do not appear to include the feet. Not normally an issue unless like me it was purchased to fit in a desk cupboard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great case This is a great case and can be many things, to different people. Its great for a simple built with lots of nice airflow through the case and for those wanting to overclock and push their components for that extra performance it offers great watercooling potential with lots of space for all the necessary equipment. Well made and easy to access the internals. I had the small version of this case and didnt think twice about upgrading to the Midi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect.... Living through a time when all the air for cooling was drawn through the front fans....with no doors etc to slow down the flow....this stunning looking case holds all the keys to a quiet and roomy system....with air flow in abubdance....for the fans are adjustable and the way of cleaning them is simplicity....but the most important is the build and just like a foundation of a house this is spot on....bringing quality products together so we the customer can enjoy what is on offer....I cannot find a fault so will sum my experience so far has perfect....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Complete.... I have just aquired this when purchasing a 3XS system and was very impressed with the high quality on offer....through my eyes she is a real looker and very cool and quiet with the white fans spinning....the side windows adds some charm and the weight was twice as heavy as my old to sum this case up....she holds great looks with plenty of options for the thank you Scott for making her look so nice inside....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great case for DIY builders Case came completely, void of any damages/defects. Very sturdy side panels even the side with the window. Was slightly heavier than expected but that's a minor niggle. Had plenty of room for cable routing and tons of air flow opportunities, I chose a watercooled solution with a H100i and it fit with no issues although not certain a push-pull would work without lower profile fans. (Haven't tried it though!) Build came together extremely well and easy whether new builder or just doing it at home definitely recommend this case.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good looks, nice wind, plenty of space This is a nice, standard case. Fairly nice design, would definitely look good with lights inside (with that big old window). It was wider than I was expecting, but otherwise a well sized package. Compact enough to not take up half the desk and for the parts to be snug inside, but large enough to get your fambles in while building. Good cable routing options in the back plate & enough anchor points on the reverse. Building another rig for my brother soon, will probably get another one of these cases.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Case Very good airflow, easy cable management, plenty of expansion room. It is also fairly quiet, and easy to clean filters. Keeps my system cooler than my old Antec P183, temps down by about 10c. I would have preferred if this case didn't have the window, ( would rather have had space for a side fan like the original Midi 2), but it does the job well. Easy to recommend to anyone.
