Fractal Design Define XL Black ATX Full Tower Silent PC Computer Case
  • ATX Full Tower
  • 4 USB 2.0, 1 eSATA, Audio Front
  • Mini ITX, Micro ATX, ATX, E-ATX


This is a fantastic case. Really well built with high quality materials and quality control in mind. The design is great, it dropped my MB temps by a solid 5C thanks to it's compartment design. The HDD cage layouts work great and it's large enough to cram my hd6990 in there no problem. Buy this case if you have no spacial requirements as it is very wide due to the fantastic cable management system.


Very few cons but there are a couple;
1) The lower compartment has a slot in the MB tray for cable management, which is great except it is too far back for larger PSUs and therefore not useable. It wasn't a huge threat as i just ran the PSU cables through one of the HDD trays i wasn't using but still sucked that I couldn't use it.
2) Takes a really long CPU cable to make it from the PSU to the MB using the cable management system, not really a con for the case but make sure you address this.

Other Thoughts:

My System:
Fractal XL Black Case
Asus Crosshair IV Formula
AMD Phenom X6 1100T @ 4.2Ghz on air
AMD Radeon HD6990
16GB G-Skill Ram @ 1800
1200W PSU - Corsair
2x G-Skill Phoenix Pro 120gb in Raid 0
1x WD 1TB storage drive
Replaced all 140mm fans with Thermalright X-Silent 140mm - the fans that come with this case are really good but nothing beats the X-Silents, they have an unbelievable CFM to db ratio
