Fractal Design Node 605 HTPC Chassis Review

Fractal Design has seemingly come out of nowhere and made some pretty sexy and quiet chassis. In the past, we’ve reviewed their 3000 and Define R4 and been thoroughly impressed. With their Node 605, they attempt to succeed in a space that’s been difficult to break. The slick HTPC-style chassis has a hidden panel to cover the USB ports and optical drive.

Fractal Design are well known for their slick styling, solid build quality and premium performance and I no doubt that the Node 605 will offer anything less. The chassis is priced at around £110, which isn’t cheap but it is in line with the competition for similar chassis solutions. Fractal aren’t known for their cheap prices but as we’ve seen in the Node 304 and the Define R4 you get great value for money in terms of the three big aspects of style, quality and performance.
