Fractal Design has released new Core X3 series PC cases and today we'll review the Core 3300, an all black and stylish mid-tower chassis. This ATX, Micro-ATX, Mini-ITX ready tower chassis can house a pair of external 5.25-inch drive bays, two ODDs (optical disk drives) or anything else that uses that form factor of course. It is a wide-body ATX Mid Tower. High-performance features include superior liquid cooling potential with support for a 240mm radiator. Then on the inside Fractal Design made sure you can house a lot of internal 2.5/3.5-inch HDDs and SSDs. There is something special about the storage solution though. But we'll show you that in more detail in the review. Up to four 3.5" or 2.5" hard drives can be fitted in the hard drive tray, with vibration dampening silicone grommets. In addition, two additional SSD drive can be placed behind the motherboard tray.
