At this year’s Computex, Fractal Design unveiled its latest product: the Terra ITX case. With a volume of just 10.5 liters and an eye-catching wooden strip as a design element, the Terra stands out from the crowd.
A small case with a large capacity
Despite its compact size, the Terra has room for a 3-slot graphics card, making it a notable addition to Fractal Design’s previously sparse ITX lineup. The case is made of an aluminum chassis with a steel base and features extensive vents on the sides and lid.
A touch of nature: walnut wood
The front of the Terra is kept simple and is enhanced by a walnut wood trim at the bottom. This is located near the I/O panel and is reminiscent of the recently introduced Fractal Design North, which also uses wood elements.
Flexibility inside: CPU or GPU?
The Terra offers users flexibility in configuration. They can choose between a CPU-centric or GPU-centric configuration by sliding the motherboard tray horizontally. This allows more space for the CPU or GPU cooler depending on the orientation.
Cooling and Memory Options
The Terra can accommodate CPU coolers up to 77 mm tall and graphics cards measuring 322 × 62 × 145 mm. A 120 mm fan slot in the bottom is available for cooling the hardware. Mesh or dust filters have been omitted to ensure optimal air circulation. The fan slot can also be used for a radiator, but this reduces the maximum length of the graphics card to 200 mm. If the fan is completely omitted, a second SSD can be installed there.
Availability and Pricing
The Fractal Design Terra is available now and comes in Jade, Graphite and Silver colors. The manufacturer recommends a price of around $180, including a PCIe-4 riser. In Germany, the price should be about 215 euros after adjusting for taxes.
