Good NAS Case Verified OwnerVerified Owner


Holds a lot for a small case
Very well designed
Good build quality (minor QA issues)
Only minor gripes
The fans take a SATA power connector
HDD LED is on the bottom, kind of an odd place to put it
I'm building up my data storage at home, and for my first server I wanted something neat and compact but still able to hold a decent amount of drives. The Node 804 fits my requirements pretty well. It can hold 8 3.5" hard drives in the main bays, as well as two more near the motherboard and has even more space in the front panel to fit two 2.5" drives. It also has space for a slot-loading optical drive.

It's pretty easy to work with, and feels well built. I did have an issue with the top panel screw not quite lining up with the frame. It was very difficult to remove and damaged the screw slightly.

Cable management wasn't too bad, they give you velcro ties on the bottom near the power supply to help keep it neat.

The fans do want a SATA power connector, which can be a scarce resource on a NAS so you may want to get an adapter so you can use Molex.

All in all, I would definitely recommend this case for a home server project.

Experience: 1 Months


1st class finish. Well though layout that allows to fit 10 x 3.5" drives plus 2 SSD in front panel. Very good airflow.
They could replace one of the included 120mm fan with a 140mm for the exhaust on the hard drives side.
Excellent quality with a well though layout and a perfect finish. It's Fractal Design...

Experience: 1 Years


-dust resistant (not dust proof!)
-mutiple cooling configurations
-lots of HDD space
-dual chamber design
-no SSD slot
-think carefully at cooling design ( second chamber have HDD + Power supply next to each other)
It's gonna be the third time that I bought this beautiful little case. One for myself as a HTPC/Gaming pc, one for my parents as an HTPC and one for a friend as a mid-end gaming pc. IMO, this is the one of the best HTPC and mid-end level gaming case. Spacious enough for my Radeon R9 290 + Be Quiet! Shadow Rock Slim CPU Heatsink (there's still space for something bigger). Tons of fans configuration possibilities. Tons of space for HDD (no specific place for the SSD). Cable management is easy enough. And it looks stunning yet discreet in my living room!

~100$ is a relatively fair price for what this case can gives you.

Keep in mind that it's a matx case. It has been designed to be compact. I recommend building it incrementally to make sure everything fit before buying other components ( I don't like suprises ).Think carefully at your build and at the fans placement for good air flows and noise level.

I would highly recommend/buy this case again.

Experience: 1 Months


Well constructed
Thoughtful design
Tons of storage capacity
Both air and water cooling friendly
Dust filters
A bit large for an mATX case
Top panel doesnt leave much space
I really like this case. It's well designed, like all Fractal cases, and a real beauty. It is larger than you might think, and not really what I'd call small form factor. If thats what you want, perhaps look at the node 304, or arc mini 2 - both great Fractal alternatives.

Where this case really shines is as either. Water-cooled, smallish gaming case, or as a small server case. It holds a huge number of drives for a case its size. Strongly recommended for a home NAS build, and pretty enough that you won't have to hide it away!

Experience: 10 Days


Great. Fits a full matx power house.
Some limitations on CPU cooler sizes limited by height, as well as some rad clearance compatibility. Should know this getting into a matx case though.
Would buy again.

Experience: 2 Weeks


- solid build quality
- well thought out design
- manual has easy to follow pictures
- a tad pricey but worth the $ is you get it on sale
- make sure you find a compatible dvd drive BEFORE you purchase
This is probably one of the best cases to use if you are going to build an ATX form factory computer. I found it easy to assemble my rig and the space to run cables is second to none. really well thought out and planned case. The only negative I have found is trying to find a slim slot loading dvd drive. I went to to find a compatible optical drive. Luckily, NCIX has one that I will purchase. Or, I may just use an external drive, as they are 1/3 the cost. Overall, very satisfied and enjoyed working on this case.
BTW, can't beat NCIX in terms of speed of shipping. From order to delivery was less than 4 days.

Experience: 1 Months


-solid construction

great matx case for nas purposes or a HTPC gaming rig

Experience: 14 Days


- solid build

- wish I could fit more
Bought this for my freeNAS, very satisfied.

Experience: 3 Months

A little bit big but you can fit in all you want :)

8+ 3.5" Drives In One Compact Box
Compartments (CPU/MoBo side vs. storage and PSU side)
Hard Drive Cages above the PSU
HDD LED can be DOA
Cable Management can be a little "dirty."
Top lid can be a little tricky to remove
FANS, FANS and FANS needed to keep drives cool (if running five or more).
Fan placement not ideal above hard drive cages (can't be done)
I've purchased three of these cases since February of this year. I originally sold off the first case (as I had a Fractal Design Define R3 prior to this) and found the cable management and fan locations far from ideal.

As I've mentioned in the pros and cons, it's great to be able to have 8+ drives in a box of this size, however, heat can be an issue especially with the four drives over the PSU. In my case, I went with a fanless PSU which runs very cool as there isn't much wattage drawn as the box is being used as an HTPC/Server all-in-one solution.

The case comes with 3 fans installed; 2x 120mm (one on the front and back sides of the CPU/MoBo compartment) plus 1x 140mm on the back of the HDD/PSU compartment. Without any additional fans, my WD RED and HGST CoolSpin drives were running around 40C with the fans on high. When I added in one extra 120mm fan at the front top of the HDD compartment, I was able to get drives to around 36C. With a second fan added to that side, I was able to get the drives down to 31-34C. Again, these are on the medium fan setting (with the two added HDD compartment fans at maximum off the motherboard). With the two added fans, the temperatures are in line with what my old Define R3 had.

With the added fans, the case can be a little louder than I'd like but when you're sitting about 6 to 8 feet from the case, it's not much more audible than my Cable Suppliers most recent PVR.

As previously mentioned by others, an extra 5-10mm in case height would've been appreciated especially with the second HDD cage above the PSU. As it stands, the SATA cables have to rest along the top of the PSU which isn't something I'd want to do (this is using right angle cables as well -- if I'd used straight cables, they would be touching).

Cable Management can also be a nightmare with this case. The fan switch is not in the best location but it's better than having it take up a slot along the bottom. You'll have to think about routing while assembling the case to keep it looking clean.

I ended up buying the case again to find that the second case's top lid could be extremely difficult to get on and off the white HDD LED was DOA. QC is something that's really lacking with this case (as has been mentioned). I'd buy the case again as there's not a lot of other options out there for a case of this size and look (it doesn't look like a CPU tower and sits nicely in the floor of my living room).
