The ARC Mini R2 has got a modular HDD cage out of the box, each cage consisting out of three white HDD trays, thus allowing a total of six 3.5" HDDs to be installed. These trays also support SSDs or 2.5" HDDs. In case a 360 radiator needs to be installed one firstly needs to remove the optical drive cage. Again one of them extra touches as it can be easily done after removal of a few screws.
On the backside of the motherboard tray there's room for two quickly removable SSDs; a simple solution, that requires unscrewing just two scvrews for removal of the SSD. Thus there is no requirement to remove your motherboard as with some vendors.
Since this a micro ATX/ITX compatible enclosure, no more then 4 ventilated brackets are required. Again Fractal accentuates the color design by using white coated versions. To reduce costs Fractal Design opted for a non-screwless solution for the HDD and optical drives. Requiring a bit more work from the end user, though if it can drop the price by a significant margin, we are all for!
The front I/O panel covers from left to right: the tiny Reset button, the In/Out Audio jacks; the Power button with integrated power and HDD activity LEDs. Finally two USB 3.0 ports and a 3-speed Fan controller allowing to control up to three Fans.
