About this deal

I really love the Terra's looks and size and it seems to be one of the few SFF cases that are widely available right now from a mainstream dealer. Looks nice, performs good, I prefer the stamped, pressed, and brushed AL look like those of Lian Li but this is still nice. Ocuk Limited trading as Overclockers UK is a credit broker, not a lender, and is Authorised and Regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. But then I saw the CoolerMaster NCore 100 MAX that was shown at Computex, which I think may be even more attractive. You can move the interior to the left or right, creating more space for either the CPU cooler or the graphics card.

thick steel “spine” -- for reference, a lot of ATX case motherboard trays max-out at 1mm -- so the structural support is definitely present. Discover the perfect equilibrium for your construction using 30mm of internal versatility offered by an uninterrupted, adjustable central partition.The RTX 4080 FE required biasing the spine farther towards the CPU side, reducing the cooler clearance significantly. I was still a bit concerned about the difficulties of getting a full system into such a small enclosure. Different height (up to 145mm) and width GPUs (up to 72mm) are supported depending on the choice of CPU heatsink. I’ve also personally enjoyed the challenges that are often present when attempting to put a system into one of these small enclosures.

Maximum CPU heatsink height can therefore range between 48mm and 77mm, and GPU width can range between 33mm and 72mm. They even go so far as to including a genuine leather pull tab to remove the top panel, and a Kensington lock to lock the side and top panels in place. There is not only enough space to plug the 24 pin, the USB 3 and USB C front connectors into the motherboard once it’s installed, but there is plenty of room allotted for cable management beneath the power supply. If the item comes direct from a manufacturer, it may be delivered in non-retail packaging, such as a plain or unprinted box or plastic bag. That might seem counterintuitive at first since that setting gives the GPU the least space, but it’s actually better since the GPU’s intake is right up against the side panel getting fresh air rather than pre-warmed recirculated air.

Inspired by the homes of modern gamers, Terra incorporates boutique design features such as thick panels cut from anodized aluminum, CNC-milled details and FSC-certified solid walnut. Hotjar sets this cookie to know whether a user is included in the data sampling defined by the site's pageview limit. Adding fans to the bottom didn’t appreciably move the needle for GPU thermals either, so skip that idea unless extending the feet.

With the chassis configured like this, I was easily able to fit a 4080 Founders Edition in the GPU chamber. In the video, you'll notice that when we replace the side panel with something perforated hexagonally or circularly, the noise profile of the case is significantly better -- it’s not only quieter, but of a more tolerable frequency. Enjoy an impactful and organised experience, complete with the option to install a GPU of up to 322 mm length within a compact 10. Fractal obviously drew inspiration from this case, also a sandwich style, but with a more traditional mesh panel.Fractal stole a page right out of the Mercedes-Benz playbook and stuck a pair of gull wing doors on the case. Radiator Support: A 120 x 120mm AIO water cooler can be fitted at the front of the chassis, restricting maximum GPU length to 200mm and width to 53mm. Also, fitting the pump of a CLC through the cutout under the PSU isn’t possible without removing the entire bottom of the case, which is not an operation detailed in the manual and probably shouldn’t be done unless necessary.
