Overall and FV
When we dug into the Node 304, I was seriously blown away by its styling. It doesn’t seem like it was that long ago that we had another Mini ITX case in from Fractal Design called the Array. I (Wes) was impressed with that case and still keep it around for use to this day. Its hard to believe that Fractal was able to find a way to improve on that design enough to surprise me. The Node 304 is a great looking case that even from across the room you will be able to tell it is a Fractal case. The clean styling is what they are all about and with more and more gamers getting older, having kids, and moving up in the world, the market for clean cases continues to grow. A good example of this styling is the location of the front I/O panel and power button, Fractal tucked it around on the side where it is still easy to get to but kept the front clean. Really my only complaint came with the limited room for power supplies in the Node 304, especially if you need to install a long video card. Those of you looking for a good price will also be impressed with the Node 304, at less than $90 its a great deal as well.
