Fractal Design Ridge Review: Tall, Slim and Somewhat Roomy

There are many motivations for building a Mini-ITX PC. Do you want your PC to look like a console? Or do you want the smallest PC possible? It’s hard to fit powerful components into the dimensions of a PS5 or Xbox, but Fractal Design has made it possible for modern console sizes. You can at least give it a try with Ridge, an ITX chassis.

The $129.99 case is available in either black (as tested) or white and has a matching fabric front. Note, however, that there are no pre-supported fans. The air is moved by a pair of his 140mm PWM fans above the motherboard, next to the GPU area. This helps keep the GPU cool, but the side panel perforations aren’t enough to keep the CPU cool as well.
