Core 1000 USB 3.0

The Fractal Design Core Series offers a unique combination of design, cooling performance and value.
The Core 1000 USB 3.0 brings forth many features usually only seen in more expensive and larger cases. It supports long graphics cards up to 350mm in length as a result of the innovative, vertical HDD mounting bracket. The front panel is easily removable and pre-fitted with fan filters to ensure a dust free interior.

"Der Fractal Design Core 1000 USB 3.0 ist ein solider Mini Tower mit aktueller Technik aber ohne viel Krimskrams. Er beschränkt seine Funktionen auf das Wesentlichste und ist mit nur einem Lüfter ausgestattet. Daher auch der sehr günstige Preis. Er wirkt optisch zeitlos und fühlt sich sicher auch in einem Wohnzimmer sehr wohl. "
