Product information - Arcadia II Midi-Tower - schwarz WindowAfter the success of the Arcadia Midi-Tower, RAIJINTEK has produced a follow up in the form of the Arcadia II which is a stylish upgrade that combines premium quality with features such as a PSU shroud and plenty of space for radiators to enable users to upgrade for years to come. As we have come to expect from Raijintek, their latest creation blends high-quality German engineering with tasteful design to make for an innovative and well-ventilated case with plenty of space for upgrades and modifications. Furthermore, the price-to-performance of this case is second to none!
The Features of the Raijintek Arcadia II Midi-Tower at a Glance
- Stylish and functional Midi-Tower in black
- Sturdy steel case with an an acrylic glass window
- Extremely light at just 3,9 kg
- Plastic front which has a brushed aluminium style appearance
- Plenty of space for air cooling, one 120 mm fan pre-installed
- Space for two 240 mm radiators
- External 5,25" bay and PSU shroud
- I/O Panel with 1x USB 3.0 and 2x USB 2.0
Optimal Airflow and Plenty of Space for Cooling KitThis case takes inspiration from sports cars with air inlets in the front that enable optimal airflow in the case and these have been designed to maximise the degree and efficiency of airflow throughout the case. The exceptional ventilation in combination with a total of up to four large, and therefore quiet running, fans means that this case manages to be both quiet as well as cool. Two 120 mm fans in the front can pull in cool air and up to two further 120 mm fans can be installed in the roof, along with a single 120 mm which comes pre-installed in the rear to act as an exhaust. Instead of fans, users can also install up to two 240 mm radiators simultaneously in the roof and front of the case.
Something of a rarity these days, Raijintek have managed to cram in a 5,25" bay in the front of the case. The plastic front does a good impression of brushed aluminium too. The front of the roof includes an I/O panel which, in addition to an on/off switch and audio jacks, also includes a USB 3.0 port and two USB 2.0 ports.
Durable Materials and High-Quality Manufacturing in Perfect HarmonyThe Arcadia II Midi-Tower has a monolithic appearance, with its cool steel finish as well as its slim yet elegant and attractive black exterior. Weighing in at just 3,9 kg, this Midi-Tower definitely belongs in the lightweight division. One particular highlight of this case is the left side panel, which offers an acrylic glass window to enable an unobstructed view of the system's interior. A PSU shroud also helps users hide any unattractive cables. The rear of the motherboard tray also offers plenty of opportunities for quality cable management with plenty of cable passthroughs. RAIJINTEK has done a stellar job in allowing users to conceal the vast majority of cables while allowing them to get to where they need to be with a minimum of fuss.
Two 3,5" drives can be installed in the HDD cage behind the power supply. For two further 2,5" SSD, users have the option of using the reverse of the motherboard tray as a mounting point. This leaves the main chamber free for graphics cards up to a length of 340 mm, and the 5,25" slot does not obstruct any potential GPU either. The case supports CPU coolers up to 160 mm high, and Raijintek has also thoughtfully included removable dust filters in the roof and bottom to allow the interior and the system's components to remain clean and dust free over the long term.

At the end of the review of Arcadia II we cannot fail to note that this case, for the price at which it is sold (about 30 €), offers excellent build quality and excellent cable management, allowing the use of the most varied solutions for both CPU and VGA cooling.read more...
The price is in fact so low as to make it stand out among less evolved and valuable competitors on average. With a few more precautions it would have been perfect, even at a higher price, but it is still among the best ever for those looking for a beautiful but extremely cheap case.
