Fractal Design Core 1300 Black micro-ATX mini Tower Case w/o PSU (Std ATX) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty of space This is a nice small case. The side panel is a bit fiddly to fit back on but that's the only complaint I have. There's enough room for a Hyper 212 Evo CPU cooler and an old ASUS EAH6850 graphics card. Very happy with it for the money!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great case for small builds. The Fractal Design Core 1300 is a well made case for £40. Has enough room for large GFX cards, using a single drive on the back-plate mounting at the side of the PSU. The back-plate openning for the CPU/APU is large enough for the biggest back-plates to be installed. The fans supplied are quite and efficient, but there is no fan control as on the Arc-midi rev2. Gripes: Need more clearance space for cable routing on rear of mobo back-plate, with a few cable tie mounts as the EPS CPU power cable if your using an extension will have no fixing point. Large HDD drives will get in the way of long GFX cards, due to the mounting placement of SSD/HDD drives. This case needs a short GFX card of max 18cm long length, or less for a comfortable build to fit sata and power to SSD/HDD drives. I would use a mini-ITX mobo in combination with a good mini-ITX GFX card, for a comfortable, and easily accesible build. Too sum up: a great case for the price, but could of been made even better had they had more room behind the mobo back-plate and better mounting position for SDD/HDD drives.
