Today, we have an opportunity to look at a new full tower case from Fractal Design named the ARC XL. In the past, we have reviewed other smaller cases from them such as the <a href="http://www.overclockers.com/Fractal-Design-Arc-Midi-Mini" target="_blank">ARC Midi and Mini</a>, the <a href="http://www.overclockers.com/fractal-design-define-r3-case-review" target="_blank">Define R3</a>mid-tower, and the Full Tower <a href="http://www.overclockers.com/fractal-design-define-xl-r2-case-review" target="_blank">XL R2</a>.

Just a note on the filter on the top.

I have the XL R2 and would of liked that feature, until my H220 AIO died recently the fans were setup to pull through the radiator from the top in which case the filter would have been great.

However, as I said, my H220 died and I've replaced it with a Kraken X60 which now exhausts the hot air out, so no need for the filter.

Great cases BTW and I highly recommend Fractal Designs.
