Fractal Design Core 3000 computer case tested - 5. Conclusion

Review: Mid tower case with a bunch of space

Fractal Design Core 3000 goes for €56, here, and is one of the best cases in €50-70 price range that we’ve tested thus far. We were very pleased to see a €56 case boast such quality and it seems as if it is tougher than most cases in this price range.

Fractal Design designed the Core 3000 in the image of its high end cases. Namely, one of the two HDD cages can be taken out or rotated; cables can be routed on the back of the case; it has three fans with a fan controller, etc. Although it is smaller than a high tower case, this mid-tower case will take any graphics card and cooler up to 160mm tall.

If we’re to pick hairs then we’d point fingers at the lack of a few holes for cable management, some notches and 2.5’’ screws and, of course, no USB 3.0 connectors. However, we can’t take away the fact that the Core 3000 boasts quality and advanced features that will surely provide a nice home for your components. So, if USB 3.0 is not your main criteria in purchasing a case, then there’s no excuse for not considering Fractal Design’s Core 3000.
