  • Fractal Pop Mini Air Case Review
  • Fractal Pop Mini Air Case Review



    Fractal Design has been building some of the most recommended case designs for years.  With the Pop Air Series, they have dialed up the style by offering a variety of design choices coupled with some of the most innovative color schemes on the market today.  Today we will be looking at their smallest offering: the Pop Mini Air.

    As you might expect, the Pop Mini Air takes everything great about the series and shrinks it down to a mini ATX form factor.  Will the tiny foot print affect performance? Let’s find out!

    The Pop Air Mini is the smallest of the Pop Air Series and currently comes in only the more traditional black and white color schemes unlike the flashier color sets found in its siblings.  We will be looking at the white or RGB White TG Clear Tint to be proper. The all-white color scheme has always been a favorite of mine as it showcases your components and lighting so well.

    Let’s take a look at the specs!
