    Taking aim at Creators, Gamers and other DIY-ers, Fractal Design today launched an innovative, small form factor chassis through close collaboration with Intel. “We were very excited about partnering with Intel in developing this case,” says Fractal Design founder Hannes Wallin. “It inspired us to take on a project that challenges the convention that elegant design can’t be combined with flexible functionality, and we’re very happy with the result.”


    Available today, the Era ITX is the next generation of Mini-ITX case design. This compact chassis is free from the configuration limitations traditionally associated with small form factor systems. This unique product brings the perfect combination of elegant design and technical engineering to PC hardware innovation. Era’s design presents a surfaced, aluminium exterior that is paired with top inserts ranging from wood to tempered glass. This combination of materials along with a variety of colorways presents a spectrum of choices to the user.

    “This chassis breaks new ground for DIY-ers – with its sleek look and small footprint – for the powerful PCs they build”, says Chris Silva, General Manager, Desktop Product Group at Intel. “Together with Fractal we share a commitment on design philosophy and user experience and this product is a result of that joint collaboration.”

    The Era ITX readily accommodates Intel’s most powerful processors, such as the 9th Gen Intel Core processors, and holds dual-slot GPUs, AIO water cooling units (max. 240 mm), and up to four storage devices, all thanks to an innovative, flexible PSU mounting system in a 16 liter footprint. Optimal airflow and component cooling are achieved through an efficient chimney design.
