Summary: I am well pleased with this case. I had no problems in assembling a new computer in it - apart from (as someone else has mentioned) getting the blank out to fit the DVD unit. I've noticed that information on the size of computer cases can be quite wrong. This one is advertised as being 40 x 20 x 45 cm. I've just measured mine and it's 35.5 x 17.5 x 42 cm.
Summary: Second Core 1000 l have owned, great for a low powered system, keeps it cool enough without too much noise. Full sized GPU will fit, running two SSD's and a 3.5" HDD. Cable management is pretty limited to say the least, however a modular PSU is highly recommended but not essential.
Summary: For the price this case is of very good quality. You may be able to save about ten pounds on a cheaper case but they will tend to flex when screwing devices in or have sharp edges that cut your hands. It has a very simple, trendy appearance. I must have put about ten of these in our office now.
Summary: Excellent product for this amount you get a great case, it fitted my needs well and looks neat. I have had this case for 6months and I am very pleased, the only slight disadvantage is the fact that can scratch easily if not careful but you prob have the same issue with more expensive cases. I like the fact that you can have the HDs standing too.
Summary: I picked up the Fractal Design Core 1000 Micro ATX case for building my first PC. The case is simple in design but also feels solid and of good quality. The mesh drive bay covers are easily removable and the case comes with a 120mm fan fitted in the front panel which run silently, even under fairly high load. There are also two additional fan mounts (one 92mm and one 120mm) if required.
