About this deal

Those concerns I just spoke of (difficulties of getting a full system into such a small enclosure) were completely unwarranted. Front Panel: Solid sustainably sourced walnut front panel with aluminum power button and two USB ports: 1x USB 3. You can use a 120 AIO for your CPU IF you are using a very short, single fan GPU, but the M1 allows for a full 240 while still utilizing a full GPU.

In the GPU Test, the Terra equaled the best performance temperature performance of any SFF enclosure I’ve tested.Scythe Big Shuriken 3, Thermalright AXP120-X67, Deepcool AN600 are all 67mm and would provide much better cooling.

Opening up the Terra’s gullwing doors unsurprisingly gave us the best result – 8*C lower on the GPU core and a massive 10*C lower on the hotspot reading. We noticed with our downdraft cooler that the cooler’s fan is partially blocked off by the solid portion of the side panel door. Experience powerful, uncluttered gaming, with the ability to install a GPU up to 322 mm long in a space-saving 10. I thought for certain that the temps in the Terra would be much worse than the other SFF enclosures I’ve reviewed recently. The entire left side of the case is devoted to the graphics card, so GPUs up to 322mm long will fit.Optimise the utilisation of natural air circulation facilitated by the ventilated panels located on the top, sides, and bottom. There are there are 4 screw points (Two on the top and two on the bottom) of the frame that allow for the inner chassis to be moved more towards the CPU or GPU side, allowing for more clearance to one or the other, depending on your needs. It’s always interesting to see how a manufacturer is going to address the problems of fitting modern hardware into as small an enclosure as possible, and do this without compromising cooling. I was unable to determine if this panel is plastic, or if there was some other reason for the color variation. Fractal has a history of quality SFF enclosures (see the Node 202 and the much more recent Ridge) and now they’ve released the new Terra, complete with a wood accent to connect it with some of their recent design language.

The manual is mostly good: It shows example configurations and major component clearances, although we don’t like its representation of how tightly folded the GPU power cable is. Performance guaranteed, each of our systems are tested with our “recommended specifications” across a range of performance metrics. While it’s certainly not the company’s first try at ITX – with cases like the Era ITX, Core 500, and Node 202 before it – the Terra has a higher level of polish consistent with Fractal’s more recent ATX releases like the Torrent and the North.
