Bring your system together in an exquisite way

Created for those who demand a flexible platform for a powerful ATX build that wastes no space, the Define C is the perfect solution to satisfy this balance of capacity and efficiency. Carrying signature Define series traits, the Define C brings with it that iconic front panel design, dense sound dampening material throughout and ModuVent technology in the top panel.

The ModuVent can be removed in favor of a new magnetic dust filter, and the built-in power supply shroud helps offer an unmatched level of cable management.

“Once you have selected a decent Micro-ATX motherboard you can install a high level of gaming hardware. Or head in the opposite direction and build a compact integrated PC, perhaps based around Core i3 or AMD APU.”
“The Fractal Design Define C is not simply a more compact version of the Define S, but an evolution of it that enables its smaller size, so that one could even go as far as to say that each of the two has its own target audience and purpose.”
“Kudos to Fractal Design for fitting two large radiator mounts within the relatively small dimensions of its Define-C…..”
