Ok case. 6/26/2020 9:14:29 AM

Pros: Cheap. Feels quality.

Cons: Older design.

Overall Review: When I opened the box one of the 5 1/2 inch drive bay covers was broken in half. Not a big deal because I was putting a dvd drive in it anyway. The case did not have the stand offs in it already which I guess is a nit picky thing but every case I’ve ever bought has already had them in. Anyway it was an ok case but I would have expected better from Fractal Design.

Has what you need 6/12/2020 7:49:06 PM

Overall Review: Nothing fancy about this case. Doesn't have nice features like easy disconnect drives, etc. Those are nice to haves But for the price, I didn't need those extra features.

Good cheap option 6/10/2020 9:21:18 PM

Pros: - Good looking, minimalist case
- Good cable management
- Decent build quality

Cons: - Stupid fan port on the side. Really no point of it being there, and hurts acoustics

Overall Review: I've purchased and build many computers and Fractal is usually my go-to because of their build quality (meshify-c, r5, r6). On mATX formats having a small well insulated case is pretty important, and thats where this one just misses the mark.

Good cheap case, but has some faults. 5/28/2020 8:06:35 PM

Pros: Great price point
Good front I/O
Solid Construction
No sharp edges

Cons: No clearance between front drive bay frame and MATX motherboard and no clearance between plastic feet on bottom side and MATX motherboard makes it very difficult to build in. ITX would be just fine.

Panel behind motherboard is removable but no space to cable manage any but the smallest/flattest of cables.

Use for cool running systems only, front ventilation not adequate for hot running components.

Overall Review: Would only recommend for ITX builds or systems where you never want to remove the motherboard on MATX.

Would not purchase again as I like to tinker, this is a build once and forget it case.

I should have done more research 5/21/2020 10:14:19 PM

Pros: Fractal Design
1 x 120mm fan included

Cons: 92mm mount for rear fan
Can't mount a fan on the side panel with a normal graphics card installed
PSU only held in by two screws
Not what I expected from this brand

Overall Review: I'll be brief:
Should have included the rear fan not the front or made the rear mount for 120mm
Only worth half of what I paid for it
This design and layout is nonfunctional and outdated
I did not know Fractal Design made cases this inferior
Always do your research before buying

I preferred Full Towers in the past. The Fractal Design Node 804 inspired me to retire my Cooler Master HAF X.
I should have returned this product but I love a challenge. I bought a 92mm case fan and an extra 120mm fan. Originally bought this case to gift a PC build. That did not work out. I thought I could throw some spare parts together and sell it. Now I have an unusable case and a fan that will not fit cases made since 2000 haha. Cutting my losses and bought a Cooler Master MasterBox MB311L.

Very good quality + low price = good value 5/21/2020 4:20:00 PM

Pros: - Same good quality as my other bigger fractal cases.
- Great finish
- Have space to fit a very big 3 fan graphic card (mine just have two, but a bigger would have fit)
- Come with a silent white fan in the front (good look and not too noisy)
- The power supply is mounted on the top so it dont swallow all the dust from under the case
- The case sit on pad that disable any vibration and maker the computer easy to slide on the floor without scratching anything

Cons: - The little grill in the front that cover the hole of the cd bay is too easy to remove. It can fall if you push it too hard
- Since the power supply is at the top of the case, the motherboard is at the bottom, so the connectors at the back are less accessible, from my point of view
- The connectors at the front of the case are also at the bottom. If you want to let your computer on the floor you have less reach to them
- The graphic card is totally at the bottom of the case so it have very litle space to breathe. And do not think it is the beast airflow situation for someone who want to game a lot and put pieces that would heat.

Overall Review: For the price it's a very good case, easy to work with.

I would simply not recommand it for hardcore gaming since the airflow situation.

Nice case 5/17/2020 1:49:53 PM

Pros: Easy to build in, clean looking case sides shut well. No issues at all. For the price nearly the best case you'll find. Can't go wrong here.

Cons: Could use more room for wire management

Overall Review: Great product for the price!
