Fractal Design Arc XL Full Tower Chassis Review  - Fractal Design Arc XL Full Tower Chassis Review
Mon, Mar 31 2014 | 9:03AM | Filed under: Chipset| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

Fractal Design are one of the coolest component manufacturers around and over the years they’ve gone on to win countless awards for their chassis, power supplies and fans. I’ve seen a fair few Fractal Design products in the eTeknix office and I’ve never been anything less than stunned at their flawless design and rock solid build quality. This is especially true of the Arc chassis series and the one I’ll be taking a look at today is supposed to be the biggest and best one yet. The Arc XL offers solutions for the extreme end of the PC market and with its large size and high specifications comes an equally high price tag of just over £100 here in the UK and around $130 in the US. This is obviously not targeted at your average consumer, but at this price we’ll be expecting high build quality and plenty of features to justify the investment. As you can see from the specification below, there isn’t much the Arc XL can’t handle, with support for all major motherboard form factors including Mini-ITX all the way up to XL-ATX, plenty of room for 5.25? drives or similar devices, loads of room for hard drives with 8 storage bays that can hold either 3.5? or 2.5? drives, as well as two stealth mounts for 2.5? drives behinds the motherboard.
