Three Silent Series R2 fans and accommodations for up to four more make this an excellent candidate for an air cooled system. Those fond of liquid cooling will find the ARC Mini R2 quite the canvas on which to build as well. With room for multiple thick style 240mm radiators or even a single thick 360mm radiator, the ARC Mini R2 allows you to fit as much cooling potential into a compact micro-ATX chassis as possible.

The ARC Mini R2 also features an integrated three speed fan controller, front panel USB 3.0, multiple "easy clean" dust filters and room for up to six 3.5-inch hard drives and two 2.5-inch solid state drives that are hidden behind the motherboard plate. The ARC Mini R2 will retail for $89.95 at select retail partners.
