This new Arc Mini case in micro ATX format offers plenty of cooling options, up to 7 fans of various sizes can be installed. Unique for its small size, it also offers room to mount a thick, dual 120mm radiator in the top panel.
Elegant top and front panels are both easily removable and pre-fitted with fan filters to ensure a dust free interior. The sleek black interior is matched and contrasted with white expansion slots and HDD trays. Similar to the Define Series, all the HDD trays are fitted with anti-vibration silicon grommets. The upper HDD cage is removable and rotatable, which enables support for even the longest graphic cards.
Tangled cables are a thing of the past as the Arc Series offers an innovative, convenient, and great looking way to hide them away. The motherboard mounting plate has rubber covered holes in which you can easily route the cables to a compartment behind the motherboard, which has more than ample storage space.

First PC build, first case. I took a chance based on reviews and photos of builds and I am very happy. The case far exceeded my expectations, even though I didn't have much to go off of. There is ample room for cable management. I used the cpu graphics so I can't comment on video card size support. Once you loosen the thumb screws to human tightness, the whole thing can come apart super easy. I love the removable hdd tray and the drive holders themselves. An SSD bolts right into hdd cages without any adapter. Overall, this case is very solid. I purchased it a month ago, and was only recently able to build the computer, so I missed a great price as well, but I am still really happy with the case. Highly recommended.
Arguably the *BEST* mATX case I've ever built. Drives fit well, watercooling setup was a breeze, cable management was a breeze, freebie fan-controller was nice, and I was actually able to re-use the OEM fans (usually I have to throw them away cuz they're too loud or crappy - e.g. the fans that came with my old CoolerMaster cases). No complaints at all!
