3 out of 5 eggsIt's easy to live with

This review is from: Fractal Design Arc XL (FD-CA-ARC-XL-BL-W) Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Great design. Top, front, and bottom have dust filters. The window is okay, wish it was not tinted. Plenty of room

Cons: No instructions on how to unveil the skeleton. You need to hop on YouTube and watch a review, I suggest Joanna tech lover channel. Two of the rubber feet came off, does not bother me for obvious reasons( 7.0 earthquakes do not happen every hour). Thinking from an enthusiast point of view, the side window only shows the power light from my graphics card and cpu boost light off the mother board. Inside with the fans running it does not feel like enough air flow is being pushed(getting better fans).

Other Thoughts: Watch out when removing the top, remove the thumbscrews and slide the top towards the back(you are welcome). My biggest concern is air flow. Three exhaust fans up top, one rear exhaust, one bottom intake, two front intake. This is my first full tower case. I'm trying to apply more common sense, the bigger the case the more air flow your fans should have. Not at all does the system heat up beyond operational capacity, five degree increase in heat during work load. I would recommend this product to someone who took heed of my review.

5 out of 5 eggsJust a well thought out product.

This review is from: Fractal Design Arc XL (FD-CA-ARC-XL-BL-W) Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: So much room
The hand screws are so nice to work with
Screen vents are a plus
Stock fans aren't bad
Packaging was appropriate
Tons of extra screws etc
So much room for extra SSDs on hidden side of case. Mount a stock cooler fan back there and you're golden.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Love the case.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Case

This review is from: Fractal Design Arc XL (FD-CA-ARC-XL-BL-W) Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Very roomy and wonderful construction. Plenty of space behind the motherboard tray for extra cables.
Extremely modular so you can fit a lot of watercooling options in here.
Two included fans push a lot of air and are very quiet.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I would have liked a full black option, had to paint some of the parts to get the full black look I wanted but that is very minor.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect!

This review is from: Fractal Design Arc XL (FD-CA-ARC-XL-BL-W) Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Lots of room, this case is BIG. That's exactly what I wanted. Great air flow, lots of ways to mount your HDD trays if you choose, two SSD mounts on the back panel. LOTS of room for water cooling set ups. I have a 360mm water cooler mounted to the top & still have room. This case is awesome.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I got it on sale for $109 w/free shipping! :)

1 out of 5 eggsGreat if the shiping protected it better!

This review is from: Fractal Design Arc XL (FD-CA-ARC-XL-BL-W) Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: These cases as a case are fine, well made but, sound deading materials are too heavy and make the case very, very heavy.

Cons: We ordered 2 of these cases and both had damage and broken front covers. The cases did not even have any protection on the top of the case, it actually touched the box. It looks like they miss ordered the boxes and just broke the shipping foam off to make it fix. The weight of the case just amplifies the lack of shipping material quality. I do not know how more are not reporting this problem.

Other Thoughts: I do not have time to send broken parts back so I found another, almost duplicate case, except the boxes are made to fit the case. In fact they almost look like copies. Deep Silence 5 will be the cases my company buys in the future. I wish New Egg would carry Nanoxia cases too.

3 out of 5 eggsOverall, alright.

This review is from: Fractal Design Arc XL (FD-CA-ARC-XL-BL-W) Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Plenty of room, comes with the 3 rather nice 140mm fans, plenty of accessory screws and zip ties. Offset radiator mounting points make fitting a 240mm or 360mm super simple! Cable Management is pretty clean.

Cons: I opened the box, removed the case from the foam and discovered the top cover was cracked! I checked the box and it didn't appear to have any damage outside the usual shipping dings. I took off the top cover and found several of the plastic pegs inside were broken off as well. Removing the front panel to do the build I saw that they USB/Front Panel OI module was cracked at the screw points and only hanging on by one screw. The front IO doesn't wiggle after you put the front panel on though, but still bring cracked sucks.

I thought the foam seemed to be packaged as well as any other case I've ordered, but it seems that either this was damaged before it was packaged, or the foam was not strong enough.

Other Thoughts: I bought this case because I liked how they offset the roof fan ports and there was plenty of radiator room for my H100i GTX. However, you get what you pay for I guess, prior to this I've never spent below $200 on a case, so perhaps I've been spoiled with more expensive products.

The side panel window is... tinted, which I know I should have noticed at some point, but when I installed it I could barely see inside my case! What's the point of a side panel if you can see inside? Since I can't see in the side panel I have no reason to get additional LED strips or custom power supply cables.

I don't know how long I'll use this case, I followed this companies reputation and ordered what I thought would be an awesome product, but I can't help but feel incomplete.

Also, front IO cables could be a little longer, they reach, but it's a stretch.

5 out of 5 eggsBest case for the money

This review is from: Fractal Design Arc XL (FD-CA-ARC-XL-BL-W) Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Where to begin...

-This case does not look outrageous like most others!

-HDD bays are easily removed and can be relocated within the case for maximum customization.

-Able to support even the largest water cooling fans at either the top or front of the case (after relocating a fan).

-Cable management is very easy!

Cons: -Super heavy! But hey, nobody will dare ran out of my house with this bad boy!

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing case

This review is from: Fractal Design Arc XL (FD-CA-ARC-XL-BL-W) Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Huge case, great for airflow and watercooling. This is a phenomenal case, great for any pc modder or regular pc builder. I had no problem getting any of my base hardware in, and I still have plenty of room for watercooling.

Cons: I'm not a fan of the dark smoked window, but that can easily be changed if you're a pc modder with the right tools and some plexiglass. I would also have liked if the window was larger as I'm going to put a custom water loop in and this one really doesn't show much. Also had an issue when moving my lower HDD cage as far back as it allows due to my motherboard chassis power plugs being juuuust in the way with no hope for moving them.

Other Thoughts: I waited a bit too long and the case was a bit more expensive than I had seen prior, but what am I gonna do? It's still a great case and well worth the money.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case for watercooling

This review is from: Fractal Design Arc XL (FD-CA-ARC-XL-BL-W) Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Very good build quality, clear improvement over my previous case (Lian-Li)
Lots of cable routing options, you can make this case look really clean
Space for slim 360 radiator in top, 240 monsta in front, possibly 120 on bottom
Fans that come with it are good quality
Smoked window looks great, and just shows the motherboard part of the case so you can choose to be less picky with cable management in other parts of case
Lots of dust filters which are easy to remove (no need to move the case)
Space for 2 SSD behind the motherboard tray

Cons: They could have lowered the motherboard tray a bit so there was more space for the radiator up top.
The mounting holes in the 5.25 bays dont line up well with my Alphacool bay reservoir (can be Alphacool issue)

Other Thoughts: Amazing case, I could have done without all the white accents as I was going for Black/red build and had to replace all the white with black but I knew that when buying it
