Fractal arc midi VS Xigmatek gigas

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
going to be building a mini system to take over for the boat anchor that i have next to my desk.

having trouble deciding which one would fit me the best. like the gigas for its small box like design, but also like that the arc holds my attention.

H100 fitment is a huge plus.

thoughts?

arc midi is for atx while the arc mini is only for matx. gigas is matx iirc, also its cubical. personally i dont like cubical cases, so i would go for a arc mini. the arc mini specs say it can fit a H100, but thats only fan slots based. 90% it allows you to install one. either way, i would go for a arc midi/mini since it looks better and is built better. im not saying xigmatek sucks, they make great products (so much that i think for them turkey is an important market) but i would go for a arc midi/mini depending on your mobo.
