stylish, small, well built
small, not much room for cable management
As I mentioned this is a really nice looking case, its small and really well built. If you aren't using a water-cooler for your CPU you'll want to use a low-profile heat-sink. I didn't and it makes cabling for the disks quite difficult. Get a modular power supply and even a smaller form-factor PSU to help with cable management.

-Premium quality, low price, good cooling fan with dust proof.
-Space for big video card
Drive mount systhem is not perfect but ok.
I think it's the best case for an ITX built.

note: I recommend a maximum of 140mm power suply for those who want to put a long video card in this case.

Tiny, cute, solid
None so far
Got it for my gaming PC and just love it! Tiny little beast.

Experience: 1 Years
-solid case to work in
-runs cool for the most part
-modular hard drive bays
sometimes things get cramped.
great case for a HTPC build or anything tiny

Experience: 2 Weeks
Very well thought out case.
Why not give it the sound deadening of the Define R4. Same price point.
Finally, a case with the USB and audio outputs exactly where they need to be. Room for 6 hard drives, although SSD's can be located almost anywhere now. Room for a descent CPU cooler and airflow to compliment it. 2nd build with a Fractal case, and again impressed with their product.

Sleek, roomy, yet small enough. Comes with 3 fans.
Bought this for a demo PC build for the office. Absolutely beautiful to work with. Lots of space. Amazing potential for HTPC/NAS box. able to handle 6 hard drives. very solid.

No cable management, but thats sort of a given when you have such a small case capable of a full size ATX PSU and 6 Hard drives.

Definitely one of my top picks for a NAS build where you need high capacity storage with mediocre to low processing/graphics power.

Experience: 9 Months
Great small footprint
Nice design
Great airflow
A little tight for space if using 4+ drives
Cable management is a nightmare
Modular PSU is a must
Absolutely love this case! Purchased this from another retailer (sorry NCIX) for a little cheaper and have been using it for my NAS build since summer 2013. This thing has been a fantastic small little machine for me and as proud as I am of the performance of my NAS - this case was what allowed me to pull it off while still keeping the footprint on my desk in my office to a minimal size.

My only real issues with this case is that in having 4WD Red's and a single SSD for the OS, this thing is TIGHT and impossible to really work with or squeeze more HDD's into. Based on that I took off a star because short of using 4TB drives, I'm pretty limited in storage capacity for my media. Also the fact that even with a modular PSU there is like zero wiggle room and cable management is a bit of a mess, it kinda take a hit. But all things considered, it's hard to argue that this wouldn't be a best case for NAS in it's price range.

Highly recommended for anyone - especially those looking to piece together their own media server/NAS.

Well designed, Looks cool, ITX, HD Hangers, Dedicated video
no removable back plate
Wonderful case, looks very good, fits my ASRock Z87E-ITX with an H90 cooler and MSI 7850 video card. HD hangers are very cool and innovative design. I have 1 mSATA SSD installed and 3 HD, with room for 1 more HD. Everything installed fine.
Only flaw with case is there is no removable back plate.
1) Forgot to install H90 back plate first. Didn't actually notice until I tried to install the cooler. Had to take everything out and start all over again.
2) Installed a mSATA SSD. It installed on the bottom of the MB. That thing is going nowhere. If it ever fails, or I want a larger one, too bad. As to get at it I would have to tear everything out to get at it. Getting all the components in there in this first place is a challenge. May consider elective dremel surgery if it ever comes to it.

Experience: 14 Days
Tiny, Quiet.
Not the best QC.
Replacing a mid tower with this case. I love how it looks on my desk and how it will make room for my chair by replacing the tower. SFF FTW. The case came with the cover not attached properly and one of the crews was crooked.

Good looks. Good component layout. Good construction. Nice size.
No space for a DVD drive.
I purchased this on 2013-09-25 as I required a second server for source control and archiving (I am a professional software developer and IT).
The build includes: Node 304 case, ASUS P8H77-I, i3-3240, 8GB Ripjaws CL7, Seasonic G 450W, WD Velociraptor 300GB (OS), 2x WD Black 2TB, 1x WD 320GB Blue, Silverstone SATA cables, Windows Home Server 2011 (Server 2008 R2 x64).
The server is fast and a pleasure to use.

I have a couple of other systems with ITX cases, and this Fractal case is by far the best looking and the best internal layout of the lot.
If you missed it in the case specifications, be aware that there is no space for a DVD drive, so you will have to take this into consideration when installing the OS.
Since this is being used as a server there will be no secondary video adapter, so installing all components and laying out clean cabling was simple and easy.

Assembling the system and mounting all of the components was a breeze.
The only slight two negatives are that the front screw on each of the drive hangers are not the best (the heads were even a bit stripped from the factory) so use a high quality phillips driver with them, and the power supply AC extension cable has to be literally bent sharply and forced to fit into the power supply socket.
The case screws and hanging drive mount screws were very snug but still easily removed with a high quality phillips driver.
The motherboard mounts were easy to install, use a small socket screwdriver.
I like the hanging drive mount setup, it made installing the hard drives and cabling them a breeze.
The Seasonic power supply includes a 4-SATA power cable and it easily connected from drive to drive along the line.
The Silverstone SATA cables were a bit long for the case layout but I just pushed the extra cable length into the hangers alongside the drives.

Definitely my favorite ITX case at this time.
