Fractal Design Torrent Nano Case Review

A Closer Look – Interior

The interior looks stunning, albeit this is where things get very different from the larger models. There’s not a larger cut-out on the motherboard tray allowing for easy cooler mounting.

There are two large grommets on the Compact, but that’s been changed out for four mid-size ones, which I actually think is a better configuration. Either way, cable routing should be a breeze.

Ventilation certainly won’t be an issue, with a full-length dust filter and intake on the bottom of the case.

Ventilated and reusable metal covers on the expansion slots.

More ventilation here and the PSU should be mounted fan down, allowing it to use the ventilation on the bottom of the PSU shroud.

Of course, you have to get cool air into the case, but that’s not going to be an issue either. There’s a 180mm high-performance fan dominating the front. Plus, with the high airflow design of the front panel, cooling will be awesome.

The PSU shroud looks really cool, and on the tempered glass models, there’s an ARGB lighting strip on the side too.

Behind the motherboard, there’s an impressive amount of space for routing your cables. It’s a mini-ITX case, but it’s still a pretty big mini-ITX case.

There are cable straps and channels here to keep everything neat and tidy.

And some more down here too!

Right behind the motherboard, there’s a removable mounting plate, which will hold two 2.5″ drives.

Under the PSU shroud, you’ll find an additional 2.5/3.5″ drive mount.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
