Rated 5 out of 5 by Highball3875 Good case
Solid, well assembled case, no sharp edges inside either of the two I purchased. Easy to work inside, plenty of room for my components. A few months down the line, no problems have been encountered.

Very nicely made. Really impressed with Fractal and will likely only buy / recommend Fractal from now on.

What a great product for the price. I did not expect this level of quality from a case at this price range. All it needs is more fans as it has the space for several, but I suppose the flexibility is there since some would want to go watercooling instead. I bought a similarly priced Case several years ago and was happy with that. I tried this one out without reading reviews and was gladly surprised.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Cal97 Terrible Airflow & Designed Space.
Despite me having 5 fans cooling the system the air flow is dreadful and the temperatures I am reading are ridiculous. The space inside the case is minimal so building the PC is next to impossible. On the Back the area to plug in stuff to PCI-E slot equipment (GPU, Soundcard etc.) leaves no space to actually plug in the cables, for example my HDMI slot is half covered by the case and there is no way of moving it, poor design...

Rated 5 out of 5 by TrekkieStu Excellent budget case
Bought this case to fit a larger graphics card and have to say I'm very impressed with it. No hard drive bays means more room for long cards. All hdd's attach to a vertical strip which you insert once your build is complete making hardware insertion and cable tidying a lot easier. Nice finish on the front of the case too. Fans are whisper quiet which is a bonus. Only minor point, the hdd light is REALLY bright, but you don't have to connect it if it bothers you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PaulSouthport Very good for the price. Lacking Basics
For the price I paid of £28 plus delivery its a great case. Its solid and sturdy and I cant say that I have seen any in this price range that match it.
Dust filter under PSU is flimsy and is not great at stopping dust.
there are no grommits on cable routing points.
very very few cable tidy points on back of mobo tray
you can only use one 5.25 bay as the top bay is also the access for the case front panel cables.
usb 3 ready!
all black solid design
has 2.5 inch mount behond mobo
fits all video cards and easy to work in
overall for £28 its a super case. If you can spend more go for the core 3500 as its got a much better hdd mounting option, fan controller and side window.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Stuey Superb value case - not easy for a newbie!
This was used for my first build - I wanted to get a quality case for a good price. Having checked out a lot oreviews of lots of different cases, it was obvious that Fractal Design cases are good quality and exceptional value. So the case arrived and was as described. All accessories are included. The standoffs are a little fiddly to install and i had a bit of trouble with crossthreading on a couple but ultimately they all went in ok. Installing the other items was easy enough. The verticval drive mount is a great idea but beware - you ned to ensure you place the drives correctly to begin with and ensure you get the SSD placement correct first time, as they all need to be screwed on and if you get that wrong it's a bit of a pain to unscrew the 3.5" drive to relocate your SSD. It's not great for SATA connections either as the cables that came with my Fractal Design Integra PSU wouldn't run to all four drives I installed - the SATA connectors are ideally placed for a traditional horizontal mount, but to use them on this vertical mount I needed a SATA extension for one of the cables. Aside from this little niggle the build quality is good and the case is very quiet. I would recommend it - just ensure you plan where your drives are going and what cables you need.
