Fractal Design Define S Black Window Silent ATX Midtower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Decent Cable Management.

Cons: Top Mounting Area not well thought out. No dust filter for top.

Other Thoughts: After about a month of use out of the case, and building the PC piece by piece the case became less and less useful.

The top of the case utilized 3 separate covers, which would lead you to assume you could leave one installed if you were only using 2 fans up top, or 2 covers installed if you were using 1.. Yet that's not the going to happen with how they designed to covers to attach to the case. Any fans, or Radiators are going to be block/cover/utilize the holes that the clips for the top covers slide into to stay connected.

I have a 280mm Radiator, utilizes 2 spots on the top, yet the 3 spot has to remain open, because the cover will not attach to the case...

Also you can not center mount the radiator/fans, which then leads a 1-1.5in gap between the radiator and the back of the case... also there is a exposed gap between the front of the radiator and the front of the case, of about 130mm.

Doing a simple fog machine test... any air that is sucked in the front, is then immediatly exhasted out the top of the case through all the open gaps and space
