Reviews
Fractal Design Core 1000, Black, Mini Tower Computer Case, 1x 120mm Silent Series R2 Fan, mATX/Mini-ITX/DTX, w/o PSU is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic entry-level case I bought this case as a second attempt, the previous mini-tower I bought had a 5.25" slot, but not enough room to accept a drive. The Fractal Design Core 1000 sticks to the traditional (m)ATX of having the PSU at the top. This means there is far more room for a 5.25" drive to slot in at the top without smacking into your motherboard components. In a mini-tower, there isn't the room do PSU at the bottom. What would be smart is the option to invert the PSU at the top to reduce heat intake. The drive mounting mechanism is unconventional, with drives being mounted on a plate that is bolted onto the outside edge of where the drive cages would normally be. I think this means you can get extra long graphics cards in and still mount drives. But this is not something I explored as I wasn't using drives or long grahics cards. A 120mm front fan is included, but the traditional exhaust position is left empty and requires a more unconventional 92mm fan. You will need to factor in the price of one of these, but it does allow you to opt for a more specific fan (I went for a quiet fan given the smaller size). Build quality is reasonable, the metal is thin and thumb screws a bit difficult to use, but all to be expected at this price point. The case looks smart and being fairly featureless is unlikely to age visually. The mesh at the front means cooling is good. The side panel has cooling holes in for a GPU, so this is never going to be a silent case, but it's certainly quieter than the laptop it was replacing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Micro-ATX case The Core 1000 is a decent semi-budget M-ATX case. On the roomier side of most M-ATX cases, the only complaint is a lack of true cable management space behind the motherboard tray.

Questions & Answers

Is there an HDMI port and if not-why not?

Is there an HDMI port and if not-why not? If not -can one be bought as an attachment. I like the idea of translating video on the PC screen to my 50" TV sited nearby.

Hello, Computer cases are only made to hold the components of a PC. You will find the HDMI port on the motherboard or on the Graphics Card within the PC. Thanks

Hi, Would this take an MSI B450m Mortar motherboard and a EVGA 1080 Ti Hybrid? Many thanks, John
Asked by: johnalpi
Hi, Looks like these should both fit in the case fine for you. Kind regards,
