Fractal Design has updated its Core 3000 enclosure, which now includes USB 3.0
Two years ago Fractal Design released the Core 3000 enclosure, which has now received an update.
The case measures in at 200 mm by 444 mm by 480 mm, and weighs around 7.9 Kg. It has support for all modern motherboard formats up to ATX, space for six 3.5" or 2.5" drives, two 5.25" drives and can accommodate most modern graphics cards up to 420 mm in length. The CPU cooler can have a maximum height of 160 mm. The case also comes with vibration grommets for the 3.5" bays.
The enclosure can house up to seven fans, three of which are shipped; two 140 mm fans and a single 120 mm fan. The fans can be controlled using a fan controller that will sit in a rear expansion slot. The case also features dust filters for the power supply and the front fans along with water cooling cutouts on the backside.
The biggest update on this enclosure are the front panel connections, which have now been updated to have USB 3.0 ports. Rather than the previous four USB 2.0 ports, the front panel now features two USB 2.0 ports next to two USB 3.0 ports.
MSRP is set at $74.95 by Fractal Design.
