Fractal Designs....Where To Get?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I'd really like to get my hands on either a Arc Mini or Define Mini, but NCIX is the only place I know of that carries the brand and they have nothing but FD's larger cases.

Anyone know of a place in the US to get these things?

They'll be selling their products to newegg with the 2 new cases, the Arc Midi and Arc Mini, this year. The hardware rep here said so.

I saw a review of the new XL in my PC magazine, looks like a damn nice case. My only fear really is cooling. But, for a mid range gaming/media PC, it looks very, very nice.

With the sheer number of fans they allow you to cram into their cases, I do not foresee cooling being of any issue. It carries more cubic centimeters of fan space (20cm^2 to 80cm^2) than the HAF 932 or Antec 1200, respectively. Bump the side panel fan up to 140mm from the 120mm and you'll have even more fan surface area to move air.

As for the dynamic properties of the air flow, that's up to people with much more free time than me to decide. But to say cooling is a fear...well I wouldn't be too worried.

All the cases look incredible, and it's a fresh new look from a fresh new company. Great way to mix up the industry and see how things shake out rather than seeing the same bland things recycled year after year.

Yes, get excited. I'm just hoping I can hold out for a Arc Mini unless I can find something else I like in the meantime.

You know you want an R3... It is just too damn sexy.
