It’s really surprising how much of a difference switching to white made with the Node 304. Part of the difference, beyond the color, is the glossy finish that the white finish brings along with it. This along with the black accents the Node 304 White really catches your eye. The black Node 304 was clean but its all black design doesn’t really draw your attention like this model.
The “front” I/O panel is actually around the corner. The only thing on the front is the small Fractal logo in the bottom right corner and the slit that lights up pointing you to the power button. You also get two USB 3.0 ports as well as the standard headphone and microphone ports.
On the right side of the case you have a black mesh panel for ventilation that lines up with the exhaust of the power supply.
Around on the back you have a 140mm exhaust fan with 120mm mounts if you need them. You have two PCI expansion slots that give a little contrast with them being black against the white, much like the white expansion slot covers on the black Node 304. Next to the read I/O panel you also have the power connection as well. Up in the top right corner Fractal has also slipped in a fan controller in the form of a small switch. Lastly, holding the entire case cover on you have four thumbscrews, two on the top and one on each side.
On the left side of the case there is a much larger black mesh panel than on the right side of the Node 304. This vent is an intake that is positioned to let your video card pull in cool air.
