Fractal Design Node 304 Mini-ITX PC Case Review

Futurelooks
6 May 2013
  • Summary: The Fractal Design Node 304 delivers everything promised on its feature list for the most part. But we don't like to be limited by the selection of hardware. As PC enthusiasts, we often reuse or re-purpose components when building the kinds of specialized builds the Fractal Node 304 is design for,...
  • Pros: Sleek and stylish design, filters on all intakes, support for a full-sized graphics card, support for ATX power supplies, support for tower CPU coolers
  • Cons: Various systems interfere with each other, Cleaning filters requires opening case, No external ODD slot, Power plug can be difficult to connect, Only 3 zip ties in the bag!

17 January 2013
  • Summary: The Fractal Design Node 304 Case is tiny, doesn't have a 5.25" drive, but up to six 2.5" or 3.5" drives can be installed. This is a simple, elegant SFF case that would be perfect for a server or if you require a compact mini-ITX/DTX solution with lots of storage.

Fractal Design Node 304 review

19 September 2012
  • Conclusion: The Node 304 really impressed us with its looks, build quality and flexible interior. Its size means that it's far smaller than the BitFenix Prodigy too, and should appeal to those wanting to make a truly tiny but powerful PC.

16 February 2014
  • Summary: Eftersom det er in at bygge småt, er Fractal Design selvfølgelig også hoppet med på vognen med deres Node 304 kabinet, som vi har haft æren af at kigge på i denne test. Vi har efterhånden haft en del forskellige af disse små kabinetter forbi testbænken over det seneste stykke tid, og det er...

16 March 2013
  • Pros: Goed verpakt, Mooi formaat, Prijs, Verwijderbare delen (HDD brackets, PSU bracket en meer), Bouwkwaliteit, kast voelt erg solide.
  • Cons: Door ruimtegebrek is systeemassemblage een ervaring waar je aan moet wennen., Let op de grootte van de voeding. Met een langere grafische kaart is een niet modulaire voeding van 14cm een aanrader aangezien er geen ruimte is voor de kabels. Als je de PSU bracket verwijderd kan de voeding verder na...

Fractal Design Node 304

Gamezoom.NET
4 November 2012
  • Summary: Der Node 304 von Fractal Design kann sowohl als Gaming-PC oder auch als Fileserver eingesetzt werden. Wobei Letzteres wohl wahrscheinlicher sein dürfte. Da es auch keinen 5,25“ Slot gibt, muss jegliche Software über eine LAN- oder USB-Schnittstelle installiert werden.
  • Pros: sehr gute Verarbeitung, ausreichend Stauraum, drei Lüfter vormontiert, guter Airflow, sehr leise, USB 3.0 intern
  • Cons: keine eSATA Schnittstelle, keine zusätzlichen Lüfter möglich, hoher Preis
