Fractal Design has announced the Pop XL Air and Pop XL Silent series best PC case models designed to create powerful gaming computers using E-ATX (up to 280mm), ATX, Micro-ATX, and Mini-ITX motherboards.
The Fractal Design Pop XL Air is designed with efficient air cooling in mind. The front panel has a mesh design, which improves air circulation. Four 120 mm Aspect 12 RGB fans with a diameter of 120 mm are initially included in the equipment: three are installed in front, and one more in the back. These coolers have multicolor backlighting.
The Fractal Pop XL Silent version received a “deaf” front section: this Fractal PC case boasts improved sound insulation. There is four non-illuminated Aspect 12 fans.
The new Fractal cases have a left side wall made of tempered glass. There is room for eight expansion cards, including discrete graphics accelerators up to 455mm long for the Pop XL Air and up to 430mm for the Pop XL Silent. The length of the power supply can be up to 205 mm, and the CPU cooler height is 185 mm.
In addition to seats for 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch drives, two 5.25-inch drive bays are available in the lower area of the front. Deployment of liquid cooling with radiators up to 360 mm is allowed. The full tower case dimensions are 522 × 230 × 520 mm, and the weight is about 10 kg.

Fractal Design Pop XL Air and Pop XL Silent full tower case models are already available on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk online stores, with pricing starting from $156.
