Fractal Design Core 500 has shown their Core 500 Chassis, a case with a small footprint but has huge potential.

 This case can accommodate CPU coolers which are up to 170mm tall and can even fit a 5.25" drive and up to 3 3.5" or 2.5" hard drives.

In terms of case cooling the fractal Core 500 can fit up to 3 fans, two 140mm fans on the top of the case and a single 140mm rear exhaust, which should be enough to ensure adequate airflow for the components inside.

Unlike many other cases of this form factor the Fractal Core 500 also has magnetic dust filers on it's top and side intakes, helping to keep the inside of the case dust free and clean.

On the front panel this case has two USB 3.0 ports and HDA audio jacks, as is standard in most cases these day. The Fractal Core 500 will be priced at just $59.99, making this case really appealing for a Budget MITX Build.

Not a fan of cases with that kind of side panel where it's just cut out holes and no dust filters... also kinda bothers me with dust which would be further worsened with the 3 exhaust fans and no intakes But i'd still get it for the right price and if i could find a non ATX psu that's worth getting for it.Quote

Depends on what kind the case uses. If they use something like the SFF then it would be a skinny and longer one compared to the ATX. But the Silverstone short one i completely forgot about.Quote

Forgot to add this in my last post. The website also says "Supports Mini-ITX motherboards, ATX power supplies and graphics cards up to 310mm in length"
So I don't know where everyone is getting this info about SFX power supplies. I'm going to send Fractal and email and let them know this review is wrong and see what happens.

This isn't a review, it's a report. You don't need to let FD know, just need to politely correct the OP so they can fix it.Quote
