Rated 5 out of 5 by Raybo A big'un but a good'un
I bought the Fractal Design Arc XL Full Tower for several reasons, the first was it was only one of a few that gave me 4 x 5.25 front bays, all of which I needed, secondly it got some good write ups from independent people in the profession & thirdly, but not least the room inside to make a tidy installation without any fuss – plenty of space for cable management, easy access to mobo connections etc. It’s only real downside is its weight, but this is because of the quality of build, not its size, and for a case in this price bracket I suspect cannot be beaten for build quality, I’ve never had a case that has been such good quality for the money paid. It may look a little retro for gamers, but for me not doing any gaming and wanted a case for a “serious PC” it looks fine, my only crib is that most case manufactures, including Fractal seem to think we all want a darn plastic panel to see the inside of the PC, well I don’t and on this case it hides the inside admirably as it is heavily smoked. If you need space & a case that does a good job of cooling (Air or Water cooled) this is an excellent choice -5 stars from me for both the case & delivery times...

Swedish design...stylish, little bit retro but not much, plenty space, great fans and cooling conditions, plenty space for graphic cards and it's not expensive.
Don't buy anything else, buy Fractal Design and you won't be disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Balmut Great case.
Great case, massive amounts of space. The multiple installed fans work wonders, to the extent that my graphics card didn't need to run it's own (except in extreme circumstances). The only real downside is my room gets very cold now :/

I was looking for a full tower case after using a mid tower for my pc build, the most important factor for me was how the space inside of the case was utilized and I am most impressed with how the fractal case performs, perhaps the most useful feature is the 2 mounting points for SSD's. With my priority specification taken care of, it was quite pleasant to find that the case also looked good, in my opinion. I've never been one for flashy kit but the window is a welcomed feature of the case. The price of the case is ultimately what sealed the deal with other comparable cases being £30-£40 more expensive, this was an easy decision.
