works with SSI EEB

Albert S., Newegg
7 October 2014
  • Pros: Looks nice in my opinion, good design.
  • Cons: Unofficially support SSI EEB if you are ok with leaving few holes unscrewed. I don't see a reason why they cannot add few more holes to support wider range of boards like SSI EEB officially.

Huge Case

Alan S., Newegg
25 January 2014
  • Pros: This is a great case! It can fit my SuperMicro x9DAi easily with plenty of room for harddrives and GPU's. The case looks great and the price was great as well.
  • Cons: The reason for taking off two eggs was because when the case arrived it had one of the feet broken. I contacted customer support to see about resolving the issue, they responded with two options, but when I replied back I on which option I wanted to choose they have yet to respond back.

Great case, but one problem

Aaron H., Newegg
8 December 2013
  • Pros: Amazing case. It's heavy, but solid. Lots of room and quiet.
  • Cons: Motherboard isn't raised enough for PCI cards to fit properly. I was able to get one of my graphics cards working, but no luck with the second one since it doesn't sit flush with my motherboard. It's pretty annoying.

Great Case with a few flaws

Matthew F., Newegg
12 May 2013
  • Summary: Honestly whats drops this two eggs is that the standoffs supplied are too short. The distance from the interior of the case to the motherboard (on standoffs) is so small that PCI cards wont install properly. Also the standoffs for the PSU are pretty flimsy.
  • Pros: -Dust Filters -Noise reduction -Easy access to HDDs -Easy Access to USB 3.0
  • Cons: -PSU standoffs -Motherboard Standoffs

XL R2

nick k., Newegg
25 April 2013
  • Summary: two of the issues where minor enough to be ignored really, but the fact that the back panel isnt aligned properly? and the pre-intalled fan has issues scraping against the bottom of the case are things that really should have been caught by fractal.
  • Pros: Silent Design muffles noise well Clean look Built-in fan controller Plenty of options for adding more fans/moving HDd cages Accessible dust filters Secure grommets
  • Cons: -Psu feet -Case warped slightly? -Front usbs wiggly only cons seem to be with fractals execution of a good case design ill start with the little issue, which was the plastic feet for the psu. they are very loosely glued in and will probably fall over and come unglued unless you are very careful i...

Plastic feet

Franklin J., Newegg
27 March 2013
  • Summary: One call to NewEgg and I have a return shipping label and an return #. Glad they made this return easy, can't wait to use this case once the new one arrives.
  • Pros: N/A
  • Cons: For such a nicely built case I am disappointed that the feet are really cheap plastic. Case arrived with one foot already broken.

Poor Quality Control

14 May 2015
  • Summary: Poor quality control on Fractals behalf. Parts arrived scratched and misaligned and even replacements sent from Fractal had the same issues. Just buy the NZXT H630.

Ganska bra

TjugoLappen, Prisjakt
3 March 2013
  • Summary: Kändes bra tills dess att jag insåg att det var felkonstruerat och det inte gick att ansluta några PCI-e enheter pga att bakplåten satt för långt bak. Finns fler som fått erfara detta vilket går att läsa om på diverse forum. Undvik att beställa detta för tillfället!
