Overall

Once again Fractal has managed to impress me. This time with a Mini ITX board that is a lot like a Lian Li build at a price that is still within reach (when considering the included PSU). On top of that it also saves you the trouble of trying to find a SFX sized PSU. I had nothing but praise for the Array R2’s size, weight, build quality, and layout. Really my only complaint is with the motherboard manufactures as there aren’t any Mini ITX boards that I’m aware of that will give you enough SATA connections to fill up the Arrays R2’s six hard drive bays. Paired up with an all in one motherboard like an e350 or something similar and you have a low power NAS or server. If you really want to get creative, you could also remove the hard drive cage and pack in a full Mini ITX gaming build. I hope Fractal considers designing a Mini ITX gaming case in the future; it would round out their product line. Until then the Array R2 will do and will also be an amazing server case.

You might call him obsessed or just a hardcore geek. Wes's obsession with gaming hardware and gadgets isn't anything new, he could be found taking things apart even as a child. When not poking around in PC's he can be found playing League of Legions, Awesomenauts, or Civilization 5 or watching a wide variety of TV shows and Movies. A car guy at heart, the same things that draw him into tweaking cars apply when building good looking fast computers.
