Tom, Derbys

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
this thing is like the Tardis :D i got 2 asus gtx560tis in there. not the most massive cards, but not the smallest either :D Case fans are super quiet (well, compared to what I used to have) front I/o usb feel a bit tight when putting in a flash drive but that will be get better with use.
Bad points:
this is only a niggle and certainly not a fully fledged bad point but, the cable tidy area behind the mobo is a bit tight, i had to literally hug my case and squeeze to get the back panel back on... but its on, thats the main thing...

Rob, Guildford

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Brilliant case. The 2 installed fans run close to silent. The hdd cages are really easy to move around and allow you to mount either 3.5" or 2.5" drives in any bay. cable routing was a breeze.
Bad points:
Not the cheapest case in the world, but worth the money. The front is actually plastic with a brushed aluminium look, but it looks good enough.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Gorgeous, understated and very easy to work with.
Bad points:
The side panel was very difficult to get on and off without prying some of the securing fins with a screwdriver.

Alexander, Bristol Computer enthusiast and gamer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Sleek design
Nice Matt black screws included (way more than you'll ever need!)
Surprisingly big - but not overpowering like my antec 1200
Nice black & white coat on internal components
Can fit custom water cooled loop or sealed unit (I've got both!)
And can fit large gfx cards (fits my sapphire toxic 4870)
I had an issue with one of the fans, and support were helpful and even gave me 3 new fans and a load of screws!!!
Bad points:
Was disappointed the front wasn't brushed aluminium (although for the price I was a bit hopeful) but plastic, however it is very fingerprint proof!!!

One of the fans broke after a week, as well as the supplied fan controller... But fractal support sent me 3 new fans and 2 new controllers without having to send them the broken items. Support were also very good/cooperative/understanding
