5 out of 5 eggsbest micro case

This review is from: Fractal Design FD-CA-NODE-804-BL Black Aluminum / Steel Micro ATX Cube Case Computer Case ATX PSUs up to 260 mm deep Power Supply

Pros: lots of hardrive spots
4 spots for water cooling rads
10 fan spots
dust filters

Cons: only 3 fan, fan controller
no dust filter on 2 rear exhaust fans or 4 top fans

none other i can think of

Other Thoughts: had to use my phantom 410 case fan controller to get extra fans in this case as the default case fan controller only supports 3 fans out of the total 10 fan placements.

Ill keep the case for years to come for any and all my micro-atx builds

5 out of 5 eggsBest Small Case for HTPC

This review is from: Fractal Design FD-CA-NODE-804-BL Black Aluminum / Steel Micro ATX Cube Case Computer Case ATX PSUs up to 260 mm deep Power Supply

Pros: - Cube Design (Perfect for HTPC, LAN Rigs)
- Dual Chamber (Left and Right)
- Room/Space (Lots of build volume on left chamber)
- Cooling Support (Air and Water)
- Large PSU support (Lots of room on right chamber for Power Supply)

Cons: The hard drive rack that sits over top of the power supply on in the right chamber is a bit hard to fit hard drives in while using a bigger sized power supply.

Other Thoughts: I would have to say of all the MicroATX cases that I've used over the years, this one takes the prize.

This was an extremely hassle free case to use for my HTPC build.

I really enjoyed the dual chamber design and the amount of room that this case gave me for the build.

Perfect cube case by Fractal Design, I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a smaller HTPC or Lan rig case.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat case - 1 flaw

This review is from: Fractal Design FD-CA-NODE-804-BL Black Aluminum / Steel Micro ATX Cube Case Computer Case ATX PSUs up to 260 mm deep Power Supply

Pros: Great cable management, cabling looks very clean and I didn't even have to try.
Lots of fan locations, mostly 120mm. Removable dust covers.
Regular ATX power supplies fit.

Cons: The mounting bracket for the slot loading CD/DVD/Blue ray drive is not cut properly. If you are going to install a DVD drive, be prepared with a dremel or tin snips.
Apparently there are 2 different models of the front panel, and the one with an extra plastic support is not being shipped with a bracket that makes room for it. Seems to be a known issue, a few other reviews elsewhere have mentioned it.

Other Thoughts: If you are not going to install a slot loading dvd drive, its a great case. Otherwise it will take weeks to go through tech support and shipping to get a new bracket, or you will have to cut it yourself.

5 out of 5 eggsGood server box.

This review is from: Fractal Design FD-CA-NODE-804-BL Black Aluminum / Steel Micro ATX Cube Case Computer Case ATX PSUs up to 260 mm deep Power Supply

Pros: -Holds 8 hard drives easily + 2 SSDs.
-Can fit a fairly large PSU (Corsair AX1200i). Most other competitive cases I was looking at are only able to handle low-wattage shorter PSU's.
-Fits decent sized air coolers. I'm using a EVGA Superclock cooler, but it can barely fit a 212 Evo supposedly. It will not fit a gigantic air cooler, but those are largely becoming obsolete vs. AIO liquid coolers anyways.
-Pretty easy to work with. Thumbscrews, cutouts for cables, etc. Didn't need more than a phillips screwdriver for the entire build.
-The two-compartment design makes for good thermal management and tucks cables away.
-Nice front to back airflow. Good amount of fan + radiator capacity. The hard drive area stays cool even when fully loaded up with drives.
-The built in fan speed controller is nice.

Cons: -No holes in the back to get cables / watercooling outside the case.
-Some of the mobo standoffs are non-removable. You're out of luck if they get cross threaded.
-While this case can technically hold 10 3.5" drives, the extra 2 drives would have to sit in the floor of the mobo compartment and clearance / cabling becomes an issue.
-I wish that I could balance the in-out airflow more. You can have 4 intake 120mm fans but only 1 140mm + 1 120mm outlet. There's nothing they can really do about this without making the case larger.
-I felt that the threading for mobo standoffs was a bit hinky. Very fine line between tight and stripped. They should use a thicker gauge of steel there so the standoffs have more meat to bite into.

Other Thoughts: It's a great case with great efficiency in holding parts with as little total volume as possible I'm using it as a server box with a 4790K, Z87 mATX board, Corsair AX1200i, and 8 3.5" HDDs in the racks + 1 SSD in the front panel. I put 4 120mm fans in the front, and a 120mm + 140mm in the back. I didn't use any of the top fan mounts.

I love the two 4-drive hard drive racks...slide them out...install drives....attach cables...slide back in, done and done. It can get a bit tight between the connectors and the PSU, but it's not "something is going to break" tight.

The only two complaints I have with this case that I don't feel are worth 1 egg is that the front panel fascia has come unglued a bit from the frame that snaps into the case. Also, they really should make another revision with either removable plate or holes in the back of the case to make external watercooling / external drives possible without having to break out the Dremel.

In summary, it's a great case if you want something you can tuck into an entertainment center or in a corner of a cabinet. Holds a lot of hardware, is much easier to cable manage than an itx case.

4 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Fractal Design FD-CA-NODE-804-BL Black Aluminum / Steel Micro ATX Cube Case Computer Case ATX PSUs up to 260 mm deep Power Supply

Pros: Great looks, works great as a HTPC
Lots of expansion and capacity
Water cooling potential
Quiet operation
Sturdy build quality
Intakes are all filtered
Offers the option for an optical drive (good for HTPC builds)
Compartmentalized with great airflow to both sides

Cons: Hanging drives could be laid out better (cables get pinched)
Lack of cable routing (between compartments) and poor fan controller placement
Legs are short
Filter on PSU is awkwardly removed from the front instead of rear
No reset or eject buttons
Kind of large for a HTPC, but that can be a positive aspect in some cases

Other Thoughts: Overall very satisfied with the case with few minor complaints

5 out of 5 eggsSophisticated and Elegant

This review is from: Fractal Design FD-CA-NODE-804-BL Black Aluminum / Steel Micro ATX Cube Case Computer Case ATX PSUs up to 260 mm deep Power Supply

Pros: Elegant design, thoughtful interior

Cons: Difficult to find information on compatible Slimline CD/DVD recorders for the case.

Other Thoughts: This case represents my 6th computer build over the course of 10 years. It is unquestionably the most well constructed, thoughtfully planned, and visually appealing case I have purchased. Internally, the case is divided into left and right compartments so the vast majority of wiring can be hidden from the plexiglass window view. I was able to purchase it for $69.99 on sale, so it's the best darn case deal I've had yet.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat idea

This review is from: Fractal Design FD-CA-NODE-804-BL Black Aluminum / Steel Micro ATX Cube Case Computer Case ATX PSUs up to 260 mm deep Power Supply

Pros: Great size, relatively easy to install, placement of fans, lots of hard drive bays. Good space for video cards

Cons: After a week the power LED started to blink, then it stopped working. Contacted Fractal Design support, new part on the way right away! Wrong part, they sent USB/power module. Another ticket with more detail, though original ticket said it was the LEDs. Questions in the ticket were never answered! LEDs were sent, but as I noted in the ticket, the LEDs were epxoyed (is that a word?) in. They should have sent a new front panel. Newegg will take it back even though its after a month - Go NewEgg! But I'm out a case! And I have components sitting here a month and I still can't use my new computer!!

Other Thoughts: Great idea, poor execution.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat, high quality case

This review is from: Fractal Design FD-CA-NODE-804-BL Black Aluminum / Steel Micro ATX Cube Case Computer Case ATX PSUs up to 260 mm deep Power Supply

Pros: This case has been solid for the 7 months I've had it. The stock fans that are included are quiet, the dust filters keep the inside clean, plenty of room to put a large GPU in (320mm without front fan).

Cons: If you have a long power supply, things will get tight in the second compartment. This is especially the case if the supply isn't modular. It's not enough to take an egg off though.

Other Thoughts: I used this for a server build as an intermediary between a smaller ITX case and rack mounting. It fit all 8 drives well, any more and there would be a mess of wires trying to hook the other two drives in. I like the case so much I'm moving my desktop into it!
