Fractal design core 500 itx case

 Share

I just saw that case today, I have a silverstone RVZ03, as a portable work station I find the case frame a little too flexible. 

Is the fractal core 500s panels stronger? 

RVZ03 panel has a dent already from traveling twice

I used that case for travel - worst decision I've ever made.

 

No damage on the case or anything, took a few hits and no dents. But its not ideal for travel. It's too boxy to easily move from A to B without being awkward and heavy. I'd keep to the slim cases like the 202 or of the like.

I totally understand.

It will hold itself, the build is strong because the single exterior panel wraps around its metal frame.

 

But seriously advise looking at something else. It is a huge pain in the ass to move around. Might as well get an Matx case at the point of the 500. I wish I was exaggerating.

LOL I agree but I travel for work a lot and the laptop I own isn't powerful enough to do the work
