The Core 3000 combines a stylish, minimalistic design with performance, multiple cooling options, and signature Fractal Design with a black and white color scheme that is unique in a case of this size and price. This case which can support an ATX motherboard features 7 fan slots and comes with 3 fans all managed by the included fan controller for efficient ventilation. The front panel is easily removable and pre-fitted with washable fan filters to ensure a dust free interior. The upper HDD cage is removable and rotatable, which enables support for even the longest graphic cards as well as innovative air flow configurations. The Core 3000 packs a ton of features at a great price!

Pros: This is a good looking, relatively inexpensive case. It does come with 3 fans and a small fan controller to power them.
Cons: The worst metalworking and tolerances I've ever seen. Both side panels wouldn't fit in their grooves and were bent *from the factory* so they could be screw*d in. I spent about an hour trying to bend metal so the whole thing would fit together.
Other Thoughts: I know it's a cheaper case, but the cheaper Cooler Masters and even the junk boxes I bought from the local computer store weren't this badly manufactured.

Very disappointed in this case
Pros: Form factors and aesthetics is good. Comes with 3 fans.
Cons: Doesn't comes with anything you'd expect from a case. No mounting screws, risers, cables, face plate, etc.

Pros: The case had all the specific details that I was looking for like the size/form factor and front available USB ports which is 4. Also designed with plenty of places for fans and comes with 3.
Cons: With all that said...I first pulled case out of packaging and I immediately noticed that it was all banged up particularly where the side panels screw on the back, so I had to somewhat bang out dents with a mallet. I removed the front panel to install another 120mm fan and the fan that came installed in the case broke. It snapped on all 4 arms that mount the actual fan to its housing...seems very cheap. I super glued it back and we'll see if it holds.
Other Thoughts: The damage on the case may not be Fractal's doing...could have happened during any part of the shipping process, I don't know...but it was damaged for sure. But I the overall feel of the chassis is very cheap and I doubt that I will go with another one.
