Fractal Design's new Core 3000 is an attempt to offer a "unique combination of design, features, cooling performance, and value," areas mostly represented by the bullet list of features. Chief among them is the ability to outfit the chassis with up to 7 fans of various sizes, and it even includes a fan controller for the three pre-installed fans. Here's how the cooling situation shakes out:
There's lots more here that goes beyond cooling. Dust filters come pre-installed on the removable front panel, and the nearly all black interor is flanked by six white-painted HDD trays (compabitlble with SSDs) with anti-vibration silicone grommets and white expansion slots. You can rotate or remove the upper HDD cage to accommodate longer graphics cards, and one of the two 5.25-inch drive bays comes with a 5.25-inch to 3.5-inch converter.
Two things are curiously missing. There are no USB 3.0 ports (though it does include 4 USB 2.0 ports on the front panel), and there's no mention of price.
