Fractal Design North Structure Review



Fractal Design North review

This time, we’re checking out a mid-format ATX Tower PC chassis – a Fractal Design North. The look is inspired by Scandinavian design, with custom details like brass (charcoal), steel (chalk), or faux leather for easy access to the top of the case. Offers fusion design and airflow engineering. Natural materials such as genuine walnut (charcoal) or oak (chalk) boards make this game bag a stylish addition to your living space.

It is a medium-sized tower structure with a volume of about 45 liters. The look is inspiring, with a front panel made of natural materials. We will find two 140mm fans in the package (both on the front). There are four different types of chassis:

  • Charcoal (black) with grid panel
  • Charcoal (black) with TG board (which we got)
  • Chalk (white) with grid board
  • Chalk (white) with TG board

Exact Dimensions 447″ x 215″ x 450″ (L x W x H) overall; It’s 45.1 liters of volume, so it’s average for this type of body. North supports up to ATX (and, of course, uATX and mini-ITX) motherboards. There is no built-in ARGB controller. The weight is 7.6 kg, there is one tempered glass panel (in the TG version). According to the specs, there are three (two included) 3.5″ (which can also handle 2.5″) and two 2.5″ drive brackets. On the front you will find the following ports:

  • USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type C port
  • USB 3.0 x 2,
  • High fidelity audio ports
  • Power button

Now, let’s check out the specifications and features of this chassis, shall we? Fractal Design North offers several cooling options, supporting radiators up to 360mm up front, 240mm high at the top (with a maximum height of 35mm of RAM), and 120mm in the rear (with side brace in the lowest position). You also get seven expansion slots. It is possible to mount up to three 120 or two 140mm fans in the front (two 140mm Aspect PWM fans are pre-installed). Two 120 or 140mm fans can be used at the top and one 120mm fan at the back. In the Mesh variant there is also the option to mount 2x 120/140mm using the provided side brace. There are also two fan filters (front and PSU). You can use CPU air coolers with a maximum height of 170mm (enough to fit all models), but it will only be 145mm with the fan mount. GPUs can be up to 355mm long with the front fan installed and 300mm with a 360mm front radiator. The PSU should be no more than 255mm (usually enough for all units) with one hard drive tray, but no more than 155mm with two hard drive trays. The price is $129.99 for all versions. Is this worth it?
