Fractal Design Era – the stylish Mini-ITX case under test

Conclusion

With the Era ITX Fractal Design has succeeded in creating a great product. Above all, the courage for new things has to be credited to the manufacturer. Unlike many other case manufacturers, Fractal Design does not rely on old-fashioned outward appearances. Instead, they have developed a completely new design with the Era ITX. And this can really be seen. Starting with the choice between five different color variations, you can also change the cover flap.

With the Era ITX you can choose between five different colours.

But the Mini ITX case is not only convincing in terms of design. So the Era ITX scores also in terms of functionality. If one considers that the small case offers only 16 litres of volume, it can score with great possibilities of use. For example, the Era ITX offers the right slot for owners of an ATX power supply. However, one should proceed somewhat strategically when installing the components. Otherwise, the Mini ITX case is quickly threatened by an annoying tangle of cables. It is advisable to use short cables.

Since the Era ITX only offers a pre-installed fan, the user should always keep cooling capacity in mind. Especially when choosing the appropriate flap on the lid this should be considered. Glass and wood look very good like this without a doubt. However, if you decide on the flap made of mesh, you’ll have to provide additional ventilation for the system. We would also like to mention the I/O panel on the case’s front especially praiseworthy. After all, it is very unobtrusively embedded in the design of the Era ITX. Nevertheless, it offers contemporary connections like USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C.

In summary, the Era ITX is a Mini ITX case that perfectly combines high-quality workmanship, great design and functionality. This is rounded off with flexible adjustment possibilities, which are expressed for example in exchangeable lids. Only very few competitors can keep up with this.
