This review is from: Fractal Design Core 1000 Micro ATX Computer Case w/ 1 x 120mm fan
Pros: *Small and still plenty of space for my two SSDs and my 2TB HDD thanks to the design
*Quiet but doesn't come close to overheating; using intel 5i with stock fan and the MB and CPU never go above 55c, even in the summer while editing etc. videos.
*Needs to be cleaned half as much as my old case, thanks to the filter in the front
Cons: *The front panel being on the side has really gotten annoying, but I knew it would be like that before purchase, so no reason to deduct an egg
*Related to the first con, because of the positioning of the front panel, I accidentally broke one of the front USB ports by bumping against the side when I wasn't paying attention.
*Most aftermarket CPU coolers probably won't fit in it, but again that's something you know before you buy, and not something I expect most people who buy this case to be concerned with.
Other Thoughts: Really a great case overall. All my stuff fits in it and nothing overheats.; its durable and very easy to move around/transport (I've moved it back and forth from home to college several times without indecent).READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This is an update review. The case is awesome; I love it. For full details, see my old review which was 3/5 because of missing parts. Those parts have now been replaced.
Cons: It came missing a few drive bay covers, but they were replaced without issue =)
Had to buy a few cable extensions, but that is to be expected when ordering a massive case like this one.
Other Thoughts: My "cons" aren't really cons anyway. The service was great when I had an issue, and the case is large as they say it is.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Where to start?
Well I love the blue lights ;)
My Zulman CNPS 900 MAX fit without any issues. On top of that, the rear case fan lines up with it perfectly so the airflow is just nasty.
Mounting the motherboard was a piece of cake
The thumbscrews made life a lot easier
The way 5.25" drives are installed is just cool
It came with plenty of screws (probably enough for 2-3 cases)
The airflow is a lot better than my last case, but this one makes half the noise... how is that possible?
All around, just awesome!
Cons: The size of the case meant I had to extend some of the power cables (idk if that's really a con)
The only true issue (for which I subtract 2 eggs) is that 3 of the panels the cover the 5.25" bays are missing! (When this gets fixed, I'll be bumping the case up to 5/5 because it just rocks)
Other Thoughts: I'd give you my specs, but there is not need. ANYTHING will fit in here. Seriously, if you buy this case, you won't need a garage anymore.READ FULL REVIEW
