"Overall, I'm giving it an 8/10. AWESOME airflow... and quiet too !! And to top it off, EVERY ventilation point comes with an easily accessible and removable filter."

 

PLAY3R.NET  2014-10-16

 "If you are looking for an m-ITX/m-ATX case the Node 804 is an excellent option that is jam packed with features for novices and enthusiasts alike. If the Node 804 fits the budget you will have a hard time finding a case of the same form factor that will offers as many features as it does, a great purchase in my eyes."
 

 

PCUPDATE  2014-07

 "Le Node 804 n’impose pratiquement aucune limite et se montre polyvalent. Sa compatibilité avec les longues cartes graphiques autorise un système de jeu biGPU, vous pouvez en faire un serveur de stockage grâce à ses dix baies 3,5’’ et si sa ventilation déjà performante ne vous satisfait pas, il laisse d’excellentes possibilités de refroidissement à l’air comme à l’eau. On aime aussi son look et la visibilité allant à l’essentiel à travers la porte fenêtrée, ainsi que le prix."
 

COWCOTLAND.COM  2014-07-24

 "Pour ce prix, vous serez face à un boitier de type Cube et Micro ATX que nous trouvons très intéressant pour les raisons qui suivent ; il est assez logeable, propose de nombreux emplacements HDD, est compatible avec un grand nombre de radiateur Watercooling, dispose d'un châssis plutôt plaisant et pratique, est livré avec trois ventilateurs régulables de base, et est plutôt bien fini. Un boitier qui nous semble donc très fréquentable et qui en plus est le premier à proposer un format Cube en Micro ATX."

 "Dette kabinet var virkelig en noget anderledes sag at montere et system i. Det var imponerende simpelt at have med at gøre og installation af delene var på grund af kabinettets to sektioner særdeles ligetil. Dette kabinet henvender sig nok mest til enthusiaster eller systembyggere der virkelig vil udnytte kabinettets mange muligheder for at holde varmeudviklingen nede i henholdsvis systemsektionen og ikke mindst harddisksektionen. Kabinettet er som skabt til mediecenter eller måske endnu bedre NAS/Server med et vildt RAID setup på grund af de mange pladser til harddiske."

"If you are looking to build a small cube system that can support a lot of drives, and long video cards, the Fractal Design Node 804 is just one option; and looks to be one of the  better choices on the market.  This is going to make a perfect mini NAS, small gaming or a LAN party machine"

 

 

HITECHLEGION.COM 2014-05-11

"The Fractal Design Node 804 is a great case overall with its versatile cooling options and the design to separate the cooler components from the hot ones. It is also light enough to use as a LAN box type of system, especially if you can figure out how to get a strap on the thing to make it easier to transport. All of the components were able to be installed into the case easily, even putting the water cooling radiator in was a cinch. Regardless of the minor nitpicks, the Node 804 is clearly a winning design and earns the HiTechLegion Editor’s Choice award."


 

BENCHMARKREVIEWS.COM 2014-05-06

"I think the Node 804 is one of the most unique and attractive cases released yet this year.  The plethora of configuration options available are exciting for such a small enclosure.  It’s easy to build in, offers a unique layout that has some real advantages with very few tradeoffs, and looks great with that subtle and efficient Scandinavian design.  Fractal Design has a great performer on their hands that can house a wide variety of systems. Right now, it’s the only one of its kind – and it’s the best Node yet."


 

3DGAMEMAN.COM 2014-06-10

"The Fractal Design Node 804 is a Micro ATX case that has an enormous amount of room for fans, radiators & other computer hardware. It's the ultimate case for a hardcore water cooling setup or a rockin' server. This case is packed full of features, looks great and won't break the bank"

" the Node 804 offers a wealth of convenience and functionality. Although it is not perfect, there really is no other case like it yet in the market; at least something that offers the same level of style, price and functionality that can directly compete, so it receives the Hardware 360 Editor’s Choice award for innovation steeped in style and practical flair."

"With the Node 804, not only do we have curves and a mix of plastic and steel mesh, but everything is made to look sleek and simple in any situation; even down to the brushed texture, the tiny name next to the LED, and the front I/O being around the side. Of course, this chassis is geared more for the gamers and enthusiasts that are planning to go all out with water cooling on a Micro-ATX, or Mini-ITX based system, but because of its more compact size and sleek aesthetics, there is no reason this couldn't find a home as an HTPC, or Media Storage box on the network. The Node 804 will look just as good in any environment you choose to use it in."

"Für diejenigen aber, die sich ein Mini-ITX- oder mATX-System auf engen Raum und mit extrem viel Festplattenstauraum, diversen Wasserkühl-ungsoptionen oder einfach nur ein potentes Spielesystem aufbauen möchten, kommt das Node 804 gerade richtig. Der aktuell geforderte Preis von nicht einmal 80 Euro ist nicht nur vollkommen gerechtfertigt, sondern sogar verhältnismäßig günstig für Fractal Designs Allzweckcube."

"Das Gehäuse ist breiter, höher und tiefer als der Rest der Core x5-Serie. Des Weiteren setzt das Core 3500 als einziges auf 140-mm-Lüfter und besitzt Features wie den hochwertigeren Staubfilter unter dem Boden, den entkoppelten Ausschnitt für das Netzteil, die Möglichkeit bestimmte E-ATX-Mainboards aufnehmen zu können und den großen Festplattenkäfig."

 "Neben der Möglichkeit mehrere Radiatoren verbauen zu können, die in der Lage sind jedes System in Schach zu halten, ist es auch möglich, ein SLI / Crossfire-System gepaart mit bis zu 12 Festplatten und einem ODD im Slot-In-Format in dem kleinen Gehäuse unter zu bekommen. Die Verarbeitung ist auf einem sehr hohen Niveau."

 "Das Cube-Gehäuse Node 804 von Fractal Design hat für seine überschaubare Größe eine beeindruckende Ausstattung zu bieten, zumal sich trotz des geringen Formfaktors einige Komponenten verbauen lassen, die sonst eher Mid- oder Full-Towern vorbehalten sind, so etwa Grafikkarten von bis zu 320 mm Länge."

"Das es nicht immer groß sein muss, beweist Fractal Design mit dem Node 804. Obwohl die Abmessungen des kleinen Würfels es nicht vermuten lassen, bietet der Innenraum jede Menge Platz für Hardware und Kühlung. Die Verarbeitung ist dabei, auf dem von diesem Hersteller gewohnten, hohen Niveau."

PISCOMU -08-06-2014

"여기에 HDD/SSD 장착 지원과 팬 장착 지원, 수냉 쿨러 지원까지 풍부하게 잘 갖추고 지원하고 있어 미니 케이스로는 부족함이 없는 지원을 해 완성도가 높은 편이라 할 수 있습니다. 또한, 외부 ODD 지원을 전면이 아닌 슬림 ODD로 지원해 공간 낭비를 줄인 점도 높게 평가할 수 있는 부분입니다. 전체적으로 완성도가 높은 편이라 특별히 아쉬운 부분이 없을뿐더러, 현재 Mini-ITX나 M-ATX의 큐브형 미니케이스가 줄줄이 출시되고 있는 상황에서도 NODE 804는 잘 만들어진 케이스이기 때문에, 경쟁에서도 좋은 결과를 가져올 것으로 생각됩니다."

"I honestly do not believe there is anything more you could have asked from Fractal and its for this reason they have won our OC3D gold award..... If it had been 30 or 40mm longer so you could have radiators in the front AND the top at the same time then we could have seen the white gold award for only the second time in the history of OC3D today..... EPIC epic little case!"

TWEAK.DK 13-07-2014

"At Fractal Design har formået at udnytte pladsen så godt er virkeligt imponerende og ikke noget, jeg har set før. Kabinettet er med sine beskedne mål på (BxHxD) 344 x 307 x 389 mm ikke noget stort kabinet, så at få plads til 10 diske plus 2 SSD drev, og oven i det 10 blæsere er nærmest latterligt, men på den fede måde! Dette belønnes med en ”Great Product” award samt scoren 9/10. Havde vi haft en ”innovativ” award, havde vi også kastet denne efter Node 804. Thumbs up for et lækkert og gennemtænkt kabinet, Fractal Design!"

"The Node 804 is a micro-ATX chassis that makes clever use of space. Served up in a cube form factor, this sleek-looking box is dwarfed by traditional enthusiast towers yet, with the right components, will more than hold its own in regards to performance."

"Starting with the build quality of the Node 804 we have a chassis which feels very sturdy. There were no issues with ill-fitting sections and the flashier items such as brushed aluminium front panel and plastic side window were defect free. Design wise there is a lot to like about the Node 804 and Fractal Design have created a case which is hugely flexible for its dimensions (344x307x389mm). "

 "Le concept à double compartiment nous avait déjà plu, on en profite alors pour le redire. Le rangement sera d'autant plus facilité grâce à l'espace disponible côté alim. Ici on s'en tape complètement de savoir si elle est modulaire ou non, il y a de quoi déposer une grosse boule de câbles et même de l'empêcher de rouler grâce aux bandes de velcro. Le management des câbles sera ensuite assez simple, car le châssis possède assez de trous, bien placés, pour tout raccorder sans problème."

"Efter att ha monterat in komponenter i Node 804 står det klart att Fractal Design återigen gjort ett bra jobb när det kommer till intryck och kvalitetskänsla. Nykomlingen känns genomgående som ett stabilt och gediget bygge, vars passform lämnar väldigt lite att önska – vilket i slutändan gjorde chassit väldigt lättarbetat"

"Sehr gut gefällt insgesamt die hohe Flexibilität, mit der sich das Innere des Node 804 leicht an die persönlichen Präferenzen anpassen lässt – sei es hinsichtlich der zahlreichen Nachrüstmöglichkeiten für Zusatzlüfter, der Vielzahl an Möglichkeiten, eine Komplettwasserkühlung an mehreren Stellen im Gehäuse anbringen zu können oder hinsichtlich der Freiräume bei der Wahl der Montageplätze für Festplatten. Das Node 804 ist nicht ungewöhnlich um der Ungewöhnlichkeit willen, sondern bietet dadurch ein echtes Mehr an Möglichkeiten - und das gefällt."
