We would like to thank Fractal Design for providing the review sample.
Most of you may not know Fractal Design, but the company has been making a splash with their unique enclosures for a competitive price. The company also sells power supplies, case fans, and a few accessories.
Not much else to say, but this is their official vision:
Our vision is to have a constant, healthy growth together with our partners worldwide. Our goal is to be widely recognized for our designed products and to have them available in all major market regions within the EU and US. We should be a good alternative to already established retail brands of today. It's of great importance for us that our partners understand the values of Fractal Design; therefore, we are putting great effort into choosing the right partners from the start. We will work actively to maintain sales territories and profitable business for our partners.
Today, we are taking a look at the larger of the brand new NODE series of cases. This new series caters to both storage scenarios and HTPC users. The NODE 605 utilizes an ATX- based motherboard in a desktop-style chassis aimed at home-theater users.
