Fractal Design Fractal Design Node 304 Mini-ITX PC Case - WhiteClove-technology.com
Delivery: to Ashburn
Miniature Cube Case format gaming case equipped with a motherboard tray designed for Mini-ITX or Mini-DTX solutions. The gaming potential of the platform is due to the high-performance cooling system. Three pre-installed fans are used to remove heat from the hot hardware. One 140mm fan is mounted on the back and two more 92mm fans are placed on the front panel. All ventilation channels are protected by dust filtration.
Despite its tiny form factor, the Fractal Design NODE 304 has room for cutting-edge high-performance components. 310 mm is allocated for discrete graphics, and the CPU cooling tower can reach a height of 165 mm. The user can expect the computer assembly to operate with minimal noise. After all, "silent" Silent Series R2 fans are used as regular coolers, which are equipped with a hydrodynamic bearing. The power supply is located at the bottom; any of the ATX solutions up to 160 mm long can be used as it. The body comes in both black and white.
The Swedish brand Fractal Design has made a name for itself on high-quality cases that combine a strict but not boring appearance, thoughtful interior organization and excellent soundproofing. Fractal Design engineers managed to embody these principles in the NODE 304 case, which is unusual for this company.
Its advantage over competitors lies in the ability to install a powerful processor cooler (up to 165 mm high), a serious two-slot graphics card up to 310 mm long, a standard power supply and a small platoon of drives (6 slots of 3.5 format are provided). Of course, not all at once, the place inside is not rubber. However, it offers rare versatility, from a NAS server with a bunch of hard drives to a powerful gaming PC with a long graphics card, based on a single chassis. The second success factor for the NODE 304 is its serious approach to cooling. The user receives a finished product with a trinity of already installed coolers with hydraulic bearings. Changing them to something cooler is only if the user is a fan of the complete noiselessness of PC components. Although without unnecessary manipulations, NODE 304 turned out to be extremely quiet. In this Fractal Design, great fellows.
How did they manage to do all this? The casket is easy to open, the case is slightly higher and wider than usual among barebone models. For example, it is 3 cm taller, 2 cm wider and 2.5 kg heavier than the popular SilverStone SG13. We don’t know how anyone, but it seems to us that these extra centimeters were worth it. Finding out that the purchased power supply does not fit into the case due to the fact that the power cables rest against the motherboard heatsink is a real pain. Therefore, only small things like tight screws for HDD cages can be considered as shortcomings of NODE 304, and the price tag is almost twice as high as that of other popular cases of this format. However, the price here is justified by the quality of materials, build quality, nice design and a set of stock coolers.
