Era is a unique and elegantly understated feat of both design and technical engineering — a compact chassis free from the excessive restrictions traditionally associated with small form factor systems.

  • • Compact, uniquely designed aluminum exterior available in five colors
  • • Stylish color-coordinated top panel
  • • Supports dual slot graphics cards up to 295 mm in length

Small footprint. Big impact.

Look closer

Don’t let the size fool you. This uniquely designed SFF case supports professional grade hardware thanks to a remarkably versatile interior. As space efficient as it is flexible, the Era comes with a sleek aluminum exterior and is available in five colors.


Just add water

The removable radiator bracket allows 240 mm or dual 120 mm radiators for robust liquid cooling.

Flexible storage

The two included storage brackets each support a single 3.5" HDD or two 2.5" SSDs.

Airflow and the Era

  • Efficient chimney design optimizes airflow across five total fan positions

  • Pre-installed 80 mm Fractal Design SSR3 fan exhausts heat silently and effectively

  • Easy-to-clean, high airflow nylon filters on the top, sides and base

SFX or ATX? Yes.

Our innovative adjustable brackets give you total flexibility with PSU mounting height in order to maximize effective use of interior space.

Need more air?

The color-coordinated wood and tempered glass top inserts are easily swappable with the included steel mesh panel for increased airflow.

Front Type-C

USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C with support for fast charging and speeds up to 10Gbps

Easy access

A magnetic top panel and tool-less latching side panels make for near-effortless maintenance

Large GPU Support

Allows dual slot graphics cards up to 295 mm in length

Tops of the line

The stylish top panels come in White Oak (Silver), Walnut (Titanium Gray) or Tempered glass (Carbon, Cobalt and Gold).

Imagined with Intel and realized by Fractal Design

The Era ITX readily accommodates Intel’s most powerful processors, AIO water cooling units (max. 240 mm), and up to four storage devices, all thanks to an innovative, flexible PSU mounting system in a 16 liter footprint.

"While we admire the looks of this ITX case, we are more impressed by the design and the way you can configure it for air or liquid cooling."
"The Era has an elegance to it that is still very rare in small form factor cases, backed up with a well thought out interior, clever construction, excellent documentation, and exceptional attention to detail."
"[I]f you can find a Mini ITX motherboard with a fast enough processor then really there's nothing holding you back to create a more powerful beast thanks to the fact you can insert a dual-slot graphics card[.]"
"The design is more flexible, than many ITX offerings, looks phenomenal and offers support for both SFX and ATX sized power supplies, an uncommon feature for ITX enclosures."
"[E]very facet of the case is just another new thing to appreciate and in that, I am thankful that Fractal invested the time and effort to create such a remarkable chassis for the masses."
"The Fractal Design Era ITX packs a surprising amount of compatibility into a small form factor, premium-made chassis." Read the full review
"Mit dem Era ITX ist Fractal Design ein tolles Produkt gelungen. Vor allem den Mut zu Neuem muss man dem Hersteller dabei positiv anrechnen. Anders als viele andere Gehäuse-Hersteller setzt Fractal Design nicht auf alt hergeholte Äußerlichkeiten. Stattdessen hat man mit dem Era ITX ein gänzlich neues Design entwickelt. Und dieses kann sich wirklich sehen lassen."

"Ein Blick ins Innere überrascht, denn der Innenaufbau ist clever gelöst. Speziell der Einbau des Netzteils steigert die Flexibilität. Die hochwertigen Seitenteile, die nur eingehakt werden und die beiden Top-Abdeckungen, von denen eines mit Echtholz veredelt ist und die andere aus Mesh für hohen Durchfluss, runden das Gesamtpaket ab."
"Der Innenraum ist mit 16 Litern vergleichsweise klein, bietet aber trotzdem ein paar clevere Befestigungsoptionen. Alle Halterungen können entfernt oder teilweise an verschiedenen Stellen befestigt werden. Es wurde zudem Platz für lange Grafikkarten und ATX-Netzteile geschaffen, auch wenn beim Einbau von letzterem weniger Festplatten oder SSDs Platz finden können. Abgerundet wird das gute Gesamtpaket mit zwei USB 3.0 und einem USB-C Anschluss, welche sich auf perfekten Höhe befinden, wenn das Gehäuse auf einem Schreibtisch betrieben wird."
