Fractal launches two new Torrent Series Cases

Fractal's new Torrent Compact and Nano are delivering high airflow to new form factors

Fractal has today revealed two new cases, both of which are smaller counterparts to the company's breakthrough Torrent chassis (Review here). The Torrent is easily the best case that we tested in 2021 when it came to airflow and system cooling performance, and Fractal is hoping to bring these same traits to smaller form factors with their new Torrent Compact and Torrent Nano series cases. 

With the Compact, Fractal retains support for EATX motherboards that are up to 274mm wide, supports two 180mm fans on the case's front and supports up to two 180mm fans (with an MATX motherboard), two 140mm fans, or three 120mm fans at the base of the case. These bottom mounted fan locations are not included, out of the box, and neither is a rear-mounted 120mm fan. 

The Fractal Torrent Nano is a Mini ITX case that supports a single front mounted 180mm fan (which is included), and can support up to two bottom mounted 140mm fans or 120mm fans. This case can supports graphics cards that are up to three slots thick and 335mm long. This case also features a GPU support.

Below is Fractal's Press Release for their new Torrent Compact and torrent Nano cases.

Press Release - Streamlined airflow in new Torrents

Announcing the Torrent Compact and Torrent Nano – two space-efficient PC cases devoted entirely to providing the highest possible air cooling performance of their respective form factors. Much like the base model Torrent, the attention to detail is reflected in everything from the choice of components to the streamlined design inside and out, creating two cases that really reach new heights in the pursuit of ultimate airflow for compact and nano builds.

When it comes to technical innovations, the main standouts include an inspiring layout, an open front grille and two 180 x 38 mm Dynamic PWM / Prisma ARGB PWM fans custom-made to achieve maximum air cooling while maintaining controlled noise levels.

Simply put, the new models are powerhouses that let you enjoy airflow to a degree normally associated with larger cases, making Torrent an excellent choice for air cooling aficionados looking for a compact or nano case.

Torrent Compact

- Open grille and 180 mm front fans optimized for maximum air intake
- Fractal Design Dynamic PWM / Prisma ARGB PWM 180 x 38 mm fans leverage power, size, and thickness for massive air-moving capacity
- Expansive base intakes and extra-large bottom fan support offers exceptional GPU cooling potential (with bottom PCI slot free)
- Streamlined open interior provides plenty of breathing room for components and maximizes performance potential
- Top mounted aerodynamic PSU shroud with integrated ARGB effects
- Space optimized, yet still capable of handling E-ATX motherboards up to 274 mm wide
- Comes with the new Nexus 9P Slim PWM fan hub pre-installed
- LED lights (TG versions) and RGB fans (RGB version) are fully controllable through motherboards supporting addressable RGB (5V)
- Comes with two Prisma ARGB PWM fans (RGB version) or Dynamic X2 PWM fans
- Seamless tempered glass panels with bolt-free top-latching mechanisms for easy handling

If this Nano is anything above 20L then it's not true SFF.. I wish they released that info. Otherwise it mine as well be a MATX caseQuote

It's 34L. It's easily as big as a decent mATX case.Quote

Considering GamersNexus gave the original Torrent a very good review ”We like this case”, no wonder it got so popular. Think these will do the same.Quote

it does seem to me like Fractal have pushed the size so its borderline ATX and M ATX. Both cases look on the larger side of the M ATX and ITX formats.

That said, I quite like these!Quote

Lovely looking designs, and that front fan should move a lot of air, but I find it hard to justify an ITX motherboard when the case is as big as some mATX or even ATX cases.Quote
