Elegant top and front panels are both easily removable and pre-fitted with fan filters to ensure a dust free interior. The sleek black interior is matched and contrasted with white expansion slots and HDD trays. Similar to the Define Series, all the HDD trays are fitted with anti-vibration silicon grommets. The upper HDD cage is removable and rotatable, which enables support for even the longest graphic cards.

Tangled cables are a thing of the past as the Arc Series offers an innovative, convenient, and great looking way to hide them. The motherboard mounting plate has rubber covered holes through which you can easily route the cables to a compartment behind the motherboard, which has more than ample storage space.
