The Bottom and Rear Panels
The bottom panel of the Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 has a single air filter that covers both the power supply and the bottom fans.
The rear panel and the interior of the Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 are painted in black.
On the Fractal Design Arc Midi R2, the power supply is installed at the bottom of the case.
The product comes with another 140 mm Silent Series R2 fan (1,000 rpm, 66 cfm, 18.5 dBA) installed on its rear panel. This fan can be replaced with a 120 mm model, meaning that you can replace it with a 120 mm or 140 mm radiator of liquid cooling solutions.
There are seven expansion slots, plus one transversal slot for the installation of an I/O bracket or blower (fan to remove hot air from inside the case). Slot covers are meshed and painted white.
