    Fractal Design brings you the Core 1000 USB 3.0 case! The Core 1000 USB 3.0 brings forth many features usually only seen in more expensive and larger cases. It supports long graphics cards up to 350mm in length as a result of the innovative, vertical HDD mounting bracket. The bracket is fitted with anti-vibration silicone grommets for optimal silence, while the front panel is easily removable and pre-fitted with fan filters to ensure a dust free interior.

    For those wondering how it's innovative compared to every other budget case:

    2x USB 3.0 with a USB3-to-USB2 adapter or GTFO.

    I'd sure like to see a dust filter for a top-mounted PSU.

    Would love this with a 200mm fan at the top of the case.

    I personally love how it's a new USB3 version, but no USB 3.0 anything is visible in any of the pictures.

    Just gives an option for people who are looking for an mATX case.
    Personally I am not a fan of it.
