almost perfect 4.5/5

Fractal Design Define S Black Window Silent ATX Midtower Computer Case
Fractal Design Define S Black Window Silent ATX Midtower Computer Case

Pros: This case is a great example of simplicity and functionality at the same time. It has so much open space to work that that almost any cooler could fit. It's not going to house a 480 rad but it can hold 2 360s if you place one on the front panel and one on the top. Filters do an amazing job, I clean them once a month and the inside of my pc has remained almost entirely dust free. I haven't reached the one year mark (4 months from now) but I may dust it out at the one year mark. The fans that come with it are no louder than a very soft whisper ever. The side window gives you a great view of the inner workings.

Cons: The side window is cheap plastic so it'll scuff easy if you're not careful and watch what you clean it with, a half case psu shroud or more filtered fan slots on the bottom of the case would put the bottom of the case to better use. The case only comes with 2 fans even though there 4 intake and one exhaust not counting the removable top sections. A slightly larger back panel sections for easier cable management.

Overall Review: This case has no designated space for a disc reader so if you plan to install windows you will probably have to either use an external disc drive, USB boot drive or finagle a super temporary set up (I personally went with USB and had an extremely easy time with it {watch Linus tech tips on how to make a USB boot drive})

wait for the 1050

Pros: Runs most games on ultra 1080p at 30fps-45fps.

Cons: Runs pretty hot under a load, 80-90c though that's probably also due to the lack of fans in my rig (1 intake, 1 exhaust).

Overall Review: It's not an absolutely terrible card but with the 1050 right around the corner I'd just wait.
