I went modular, so I can't really talk about cable management, but it seemed easy. Very easy. The front fans are super silent (fans are big so they don't have to spin aggressively/ loudly). The white looks really nice. The whole thing is aluminium. The side window is very, very easy to scratch- scratched it cleaning it... But that's plastic for you. The only thing you could be concerned about is that there isn't too many 3.5inch compartments, but you can probably buy a taller one- there's plenty of room. If the microATX version was in white I'd get it though- but it's not too big either.
Good case for its price point. Nice simple design. Has a hidden slot for SSD, two 3.5" disc trays with quick release, and a hidden 2.5" mount in the rear of the case for an SSD. No PSU shroud though which is a bit of a bummer. Built in dust filters that can be easily removed. Bit of space at the back of the case for a bit of cable management too. Window made of plastic, not glass so be aware of that before buying. I am definitely happy with the case though for £50.
Could be slightly more cable management room but for the price point I can't complain. The two included fans are nice and quiet and the LEDs on them are just the right brightness to be visible but not annoying.
Good room for cable management, see-through window, fans that come with case light up and are really pretty much silent. An all around solid budget case.
Really beautiful case for a budget. Even came with a stand-off tool. Case fans are incredibly quiet and the LEDs in them are really great looking. Drive bay is super easy to mount HDDs too.
Great case for its size and price point. Smooth edges and solidly built. Included dust filters are fine and provide a bit of noise dampening. Some reviewers noted interference with front I/O cables and top 5.25" bay, however I did not experience this. Both bays of mine are utilized and there was no conflict with case cables. Plastic side panel is awesome for someone nervous around glass. My only request from Fractal would be to add some zip tie points to the center/middle of the Mobo tray's back for better cable routing. Superb case, highly recommend.
The case is decent! There is plenty of room for my Motherboard(to be fair it is Micro ATX), though the mounts seemed overly hard to get in. There is room for cable management, but not much so I simply put all the cables in the back of the case. My one problem is there are actually only three places you can put HDDs and SSDs. There are two drive bays for either SSDs or HDDs, then there is a small slot around the back for another SSD.
I feel like the case is the foundation of the PC, a bad case is a bad time. So far, I love this case. The only drawback It has is in my opinion (which isn't even a fair drawback) is that its basically impossible to comfortably fit a radiator in here without being somewhat obstructed by the optical drive. If you dont have an optical drive installed, it'll fit horizontally and snuggly vertically if you get it just right. I know some people bought this case and didn't intend to use the optical drive for anything so it was fine for them. But with the optical drive installed, its far back enough that it obstructs some room for a radiator. Its easy to assemble/disassemble when adding parts or adjusting things and the side panel is gorgeous. Its not too heavy but not flimsy at all. The pre-installed LED fans were not the best if your'e actually looking for any form of LED illumination. You couldn't even see them through the front of the case (which is a filter wire mesh) and they barely made an impact on lighting up the inside. Granted they came installed so If your'e happy about that then its nice, I ended up swapping out both of them for the pink fans I have on this part list- which run just as quiet but are a smidge thicker.
Overall the Fractal Focus G is a great case with good liquid and air cooling support with plenty of options for various use cases.
+ Ample water cooling support, two places to mount of up to 280mm radiators
+ More than enough fan positions if you decide to go air cooling (up to 6)
+ 2.5" drive mount is in a nice spot tucked in behind the motherboard tray
+ The bottom 5.25" drive bay can be used with a 240mm radiator
+ Finish is even and the matte looks nice
* I especially like the white and black look
+ 2 fans were included
+ Filters on all expected fan intakes
+ Captive thumb screws on both side panels
+ Thumb screws for mounting optical drives
+ Front panel connectors are simple and clean with only white LEDs (at least on the white case)
- Only 1 2.5" drive mount
- Only 2 3.5" drive slots, don't expect to fit a huge RAID in this case
- Window is in the panel and not full view
- No PSU cover
- Bottom fan mount requires removal of the 3.5" drive cages
- 5.25" bays do appear removable without power tools
- Cable management is tight
- Need 2 SATA power cables to reach 2.5" bay and the 5.25" bays
* Might be able to reach the 3.5" with one or the other, not sure
- Rear panel is not strong enough
* The panel bows out considerably due to cables hiding back there. Despite my every effort to make them fit I couldn't fit all my extensions back there.
* The panel does not have any catches along the top and bottom edges. The only thing holding the panel on is the front lip and the two screws in the back. I believe some sort of catch need to be added to help hold the panel flat.
- Along the above lines, I feel the large metal panel is a little flimsy
This case would've worked perfect for me. Except my PSU is semi-modular and with extensions there is not enough room behind the motherboard tray to fit all the cables. If I were to make a cable tunnel out of acrylic that went in the open space I might be able to make it work. As it is I had to pass on the 24 pin extension. The PCIe extensions barely fit and I had to route them the long way around to make it work. In hindsight a new PSU with full-modular, ribbon cables would be the best bet.
Looks awesome. Great case.
