Fractal Design is launching a new version of its existing Node 304 computer chassis. The new Node 304 White comes in white and supports Mini-ITX motherboards. The case measures 250 x 210 x 374mm and weighs 4.9kg.

The Node 304 is constructed of aluminum and has a white painted exterior. There are two mesh air vents on either side of the case as well as two 92mm Silent Series R2 fans working as front intakes behind filters to keep dust out of the case. Front IO includes two USB 3.0 ports and two audio jacks. The rear of the case features two expansion slots, a space for an ATX power supply, and a single 140mm Silent Series R2 exhaust fan.

Internally, the Node 304 White can fit standard ATX power supplies, a Mini-ITX motherboard, and up to six 3.5" or 2.5" hard drives. Alternatively, with two of the hard drive mounts removed, the case can accommodate graphics cards up to 310mm in length.

It is a minimalist design,but one that works well. Airflow should not be a problem even for high-end components, and the inclusion of the three fans, filters, and a fan controller is nice to see. The case will be available in July with an MSRP of $89.90 in the US and 69.90 EURO in Europe.

Does it have a popcorn setting and can mount above my stove?

I was thinking more along the lines of 'bar fridge', but - yep - pretty much :/

I will almost certainly house my new Haswell build in a Node 304. I was looking forward to the white version but now I see it with the original black dust filters, I've decided to stick with the black one.

It won't be out till September now for most of Europe.

Thank you for your mail.

Yes, unfortunately there have been a delay. We are making some logistical changes and therefore all our orders have been delayed.

We have sent out 30 pcs that will arrive to Czech Republic beginning of August, but for remaining Europe it looks like it will be available
In September.

Best Regards
