Great bang for the buck!

Pros: Inexpensive, Front Fan Filter Foam, USB 3.0 port built in

Cons: Top Mount Power Supply, Slightly Flimsy, Awkward Fan Mounting Positions

When you think of Fractal Design, you think of elegant designs, sturdy construction, and feature filled computer cases. The Core 1000 manages to include all of these into a budget friendly price of just $40(USD). This compact computer case is an excellent choice when going with a smaller form factor Micro-ATX or Mini-ITX featured build. Before we take a look inside the box, we look at the box itself.

Nice cheap mATX case, but a little flimsy

Pros: Price, look, extras included

Cons: Very thin sheet of metal used, HDD tray, cable management, position of on/off switch, 92mm exhaust fan

Pros: Cheap Black Interior

Cons: Mounting Hard Drive Tray Cramped

First off I must say I was not expecting much when I spent $40 off Newegg. Now with that said... Pros: Cheap Small Decent airflow Black Interior Thumb Screws Cons: Cramped Top Mounted PSU (I prefer bottom) Hard Drive Tray 92mm rear fan (Would like to see 120mm) The packaging was pretty standard. Cardboard box styrofoam and plastic wrap. Case came in great condition. The contents were pretty sparse, wasn't too worried about it though. The case itself looks sharp, yet minimalistic which is what I wanted. The fan filters are a nice touch with a front 120mm fan. Thumbscrews instead of that waste of plastic people call "screwless installation" Installing my motherboard took longer than...
