The Bottom and Rear Panels
The bottom panel of the Fractal Design Node 304 has an air filter for the power supply fan. The rear panel and the interior of the reviewed case are painted in black.
The case has two expansion slots, with white vented covers.
The rear panel comes with a 140 mm Silent Series R2 fan (1,000 rpm/66 cfm/18.5 dBA), which can also be connected to the three-speed fan controller.
On the Fractal Design Node 304, the power supply is installed sideways, at the front portion of the case. Because of that, the case has an AC receptacle on its rear panel, which is internally connected to the power supply’s own AC receptacle.
As mentioned before, this case comes with a three-speed fan controller. This device is located at the upper right side of the rear panel, and can control the three fans that come with the case.
Let’s now take a look inside the Fractal Design Node 304.
