Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great mini ITX case Really nice solid case. I've managed to fit 8 2.5 inch drives into the case. I used dual 2.5" caddies to allow two drives to be mounted in a 3.5" drive bay. I could fit a total of twelve 2.5" drives in the case - four per drive bay. The cables are a pain to route though. Because of the type of caddy I bought I had to secure the caddies by screwing into one of the drives which I had mounted into the caddy. I also had to alternate the caddies rotation so that one of each pair of caddies were cabled from the rear and one from the front. It's do-able but makes cable routing complex. 21 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great high end case for HTPC and/or home server This case is gorgeous looking, very compact and extremely well made. Plenty of space for storage. Fans are very very quite on low or medium and only slightly audible on high. I have 6 HHD fitted with a 35W i5 and fan setting at low. All temp hover around 22-26 C running 24/7. 19 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I had specific requirements, all were met. I needed a pc i could take around as hand luggage on aeroplanes and could still pack a good punch. I fitted an r9 290 in it and a hybrid modular powersupply. Bit of a squeeze but it was all good. Make sure you use a hybrid modular power supply with this because full modular cables will be obstructed by the graphics card in this case. Ample space for cooling and harddrives, dust filters on every intake. Looks sleek, its small and it fits almost any sized gpu. 30 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Case - Amazing Price The case itself is amazing, it looks superb and the build quality is fantastic too, its really well priced and tbh quite the bargain imo. Building inside the case was easy but difficult at the same time lol I'm quite the perfectionist and wanted cables tucked out the way and routed properly so this made it more difficult for me. if you want to build a gaming pc with this case then do be aware that you will loose 1 HDD cage unless you opt for an ITX GFX card then you may be able to squeeze them all in but i think 6 hdd's is a bit overkill in a case like this anyway. i am really please i chose this case, but be aware of PSU size, i have installed a corsair C500m and it fits quite nicely... the problem is that when you install a GFX card it cuts across the wire side of the PSU so if your card is too long it will hit the wires and not fit, unless the PSU is shorter and allows the room. the case fans that you get with it are pretty good as well, i have them all connected to the built in fan controller on the back of the case, i just have them on low setting and i cannot hear them, even on medium or high they are pretty quiet too. theres nothing that i can think of that i think is a bad point to the case, it really is perfect for me... 16 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Top quality small form factor case After years of building tower PC's I decided to have a change and build a small form factor PC. After spending a good few days looking at reviews of potential cases I decided to buy the Fractal Designs Node 304. It is a top quality case, you just need to be 100% sure about the parts you buy to go in it. I purchased a 140mm Corsair Hydro CPU cooler, which had to be replaced with a 120mm Corsair Hydro CPU cooler for space reasons. Not the cases fault, but my fault for not buying the case first and measuring up before buying the rest of the PC parts. 27 December 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Well built and space for what you want in ITX form factor If anyone wants Mini ITX and 6 x 3.5" Drives just don't bother (even though in my opinon its counter intuitive anyway) but I have 2 x 2.5" solid states, a full sized graphics card and watercooled CPU using corsair closed loop system. The only issue I am aware of is the possibility for a longer modular PSU to infringe on a long Graphics card as the PSU sits sideways in the case and plugging in the modular cables creates that extra length. 12 August 2013

Answer: 
I assume this has been answered previously, but, you will need to purchase an external optical drive.

Answer: 
You'll need to use an external drive since there's no slot for an optical drive at the front.
