“The new design is tidy and, as our results show, efficient from an air-cooling perspective. It's a good choice for a new micro-ATX build”
“Sound-dampening materials, a top ModuVent, versatile radiator compatibility, a hidden PSU compartment and a design free of unnecessary frills. Define C ticks all those boxes and serves as a smaller, more affordable alternative to the trendsetting Define R5.”
“All told, Fractal's latest delivers every bit of the clean styling, quiet manners, modular touches, and solid performance we've come to expect from the company's other cases”
