About this deal
Fractal could have made this a little better by having the PSU bracket mount just a little higher within the chassis. The _ga cookie, installed by Google Analytics, calculates visitor, session and campaign data and also keeps track of site usage for the site's analytics report.
Unless you need the extra power SFX-L affords, we recommend sticking to true SFX PSUs in the Terra just for ease of use and flexibility.To control and limit variables as much as possible, we are largely looking per-case for ITX reviews (whereas our ATX reviews can be more standardized). Our 13600KF and RTX 4070 weren’t really held back, but ultra high-end choices like a 4090 or 13900K would force you into skimping on cooling somewhere and making an imbalanced build.
Inspired by the homes of modern gamers, Fractal Terra incorporates boutique design features such as thick panels cut from anodized aluminium, CNC-milled details and FSC-certified solid walnut. 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. The sides can be easily folded up and the lid can also be easily removed via a strap made of imitation leather.The overall quality is certainly up to Fractal’s usual standards, but the thought that went into this is easily visible. That’s a big change from the older super toned-down Define series, and it’s revitalized the company in the DIY market. Given the better CPU thermal performance, we recommend running with the 10mm standoffs on the PSU mount with the GPU as close to the side panel as possible.
I will point out that if you are building an ITX system, I highly recommend connecting the 8 pin EPS power connector and installing the CPU cooler prior to installing the motherboard.Enjoy an impactful and organised experience, complete with the option to install a GPU of up to 322 mm length within a compact 10. Grab a GN15 Large Anti-Static Modmat to celebrate our 15th Anniversary and for a high-quality PC building work surface. The Terra is a “sandwich” mini-ITX case with unique features like removable gull-wing doors and top panel for access, a movable spine for flexible internal fitment, and touches of wood and leather for some style from alternative materials.
