Fractal Design Core 3000 Case Review

Hardware Secrets Golden Award

The Front Panel

The front panel of the Fractal Design Core 3000 has a very sober look, with only two external 5.25” bays, which allowed more space for internal bays. The external bays use meshed covers with air filters, and the bottom one comes with an adapter for you to install an external 3.5” device.

Internally, the case has two hard drive cages, and it comes with a 140 mm fan on its front panel cooling the top hard drive cage. You can install a second 140 mm fan to cool down the bottom cage or you can move the fan to the bottom, if you prefer to cool down the bottom cage instead of the top one. This fan spins at 1,000 rpm and comes with a three-pin connector, and it can be installed on the fan controller that comes with the product. There is an air filter for these fans.
