The Nano S – a Mini ITX casing from Fractal Design that’s sleek, silent and compact.
Before we begin, I’d like to take this opportunity to highlight that there is a video review for the Fractal Design Nano S. (Remember to SUBSCRIBE to the channel!)
Starting from the top, the Nano S has the power and reset button, LED lights, audio jacks and 2 USB 3.0 connectors placed at the front.
The Modu/Vent cover at the top can be removed to house radiators up to 240mm in size. The cover comes with sound dampening material underneath, you lose this feature when you have additional cooling installed.
The Nano S comes with removable front panel, just like the top panel the front panel comes with sound dampening material.
At the back the Nano looks diferent from the usual tower casing.
The airflow openings at the bottom are covered from front to back by a removable dust-filter.
The interior of the Nano S is roomy, pre-installed is a 140mm fan at the front and a 120mm fan at the back. The Nano S has 2 expansion slots and holds graphics cards up to 315mm in length.
Here’s the area under the motherboard tray, sufficiently spacious to handle even non-modular PSU cables, not to forget it comes with velcro straps for cable management. Rubber grommets cover the openings for better aesthetics.
The Nano S comes with pre-drilled holes for pump and reservoir mounting.
As for storage the Nano S comes with 2 dedicated SSD mounting points. Further towards the front is another mounting place for single SSD or HDD.
More details at the offical product page.
Fractal Design Nano S Mini-ITX Desktop Casing retails at RM 339, it’s not the small of Mini-ITX casing but that’s the beauty of it as it allows you to hold so many goodies within it. Just note that if you’re using a motherboard like the ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII IMPACT then the riser card for power phases may obstruct installation of additional cooling peripherals at the top.
As always with goldfries’ casing review – here’s the final build.
