It's actually a really decent case for the price, especially if you mod it a bit.

 

For exhaust you've got the back 92mm and from the start you will need a PSU which will act as an exhaust so generally another 120mm, and if you're willing you could open up the from so that you have 2x120mm in the front which all in all is more than enough.

 

I've built 4 computers with the Core 1000 and they end up looking great and has great performance/size for an m-atx, check this one out: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?286013-fractal-core-1000-mod-black-metal-power

 

You can ignore all the cosmetics and you have a simple mod. I usually end up using the 120mm intake for an AIO cooler radiator or i flip out like last time and put a 360 rad on top of the case:P

Dont get me wrong its a nice looking case, i just think it gets a lot of sales just because its called fractal design, a lot of the time i compare to the cm n200 which shouldnt be happening, also is there any benefit to a top mounted psu, is it cheaper to put the mount at the top, its really bugs me

I can agree on that, the reason I like it is because it's cheap to make a fast clean looking build but also a clean canvas for modding. The n200 is far more value and actually the better case:)

 

Oh god.... seriously, when dealing with oem's it doesnt bother me but unless you put a really beefy graphics card in the Core 1000 it feels like it would just tip over from a gust of wind! (And holy, you changed your Profile pic, didn't "recognize" you there;))

I wouldn't really recommend Seagate they really don't have reliability, personally i would go for Western Digital

I'm just took whatever I had lying around, it was this one or a WD RE3, and I'm not going to use a RE series as a single drive.

 

Seagate and WD are about the same when it comes to normal consumer drives, no need to fanboy over them.
