Real World Labs Review of Fractal Design Arc Midi R2-Possible Misrepresentation of Arc Midi R2's Cooling Performance

My apologies for posting this here, as I do not have the posting permissions to post this in Hardware News.

I just read Real World Labs' review of the Arc Midi R2. Since I was interested in how it compared in cooling performance to the Define XL R2 (which was also recently reviewed by them), I compared the HWMonitor performance results, and was surprised to discover that they were identical.

So I copy-pasted the image URLs of the HWMonitor results for both the Arc Midi R2 and the Define XL R2, and was shocked to discover that Real World Labs reused the Define XL R2 results and represented them as the Arc Midi R2 results!

Here are the pages of the reviews with the HWMonitor images:

http://www.rwlabs.com/article.php?cat=&id=849&pagenumber=4

Considering that the image URL specifically mentions the Define XL R2, I'm not entirely sure that this was a genuine mistake.

A bump, to give this topic some more publicity in the hope that someone finds it interesting and wants to comment. We are looking at a potential misrepresentation here-it does deserve discussion.

Looks like there is a "Contact Us" link on their website. Perhaps you should do that and alert them to this error.

I will give that a shot, though my hopes aren't up.

RWL just wrote back saying they're going to correct the issue. Whew.biggrin.gif

Edit: They fully fixed it.
