Rated 5 out of 5 by zaphodbeeblebrox Good economy case.
The case is very good but:
1. The 120mm front intake fan was pre-installed the wrong way round so it was acting as an exhaust fan!
2. FD say to fit the top mounted psu first but I found that it gets in the way, For what its worth I found this the best order:
With motherboard on a flat surface: fit the power leads from the psu to the motherboard (they are a tight fit) and then cpu and cooler. Next fit the motherboard. Now fit the psu, then everything else.
3. The FD 120mm fan and the rear FD 92mm fan I added are quiet.
Overall a nice cheap case,

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kane856 Nice basic case
Used this case for a budget AMD APU based build - not as high quality as the higher end Fractal cases but at the price it's a bargain. Nice design makes it easy to build in although there's a lack of cable tie downs which wasn't a huge problem for me - with the single 120mm supplied fan and running an AMD A6 cpu with the stock cooler the machine is VERY quiet - would I buy another one?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeckulz Nice Suprise
Got one of these last minute for a friend's PC. The Core 1000 was out of stock and the chap at scan suggested this instead.
The internal layout is exactly the same as the 1000, but it has two narrow vent slots down each front corner instead of a wide open filtered front intake.
Noise IS slightly lower than in the 1000 (used previously), and with fractal's usual build quality - Would happily recommend.
