Silence, efficiency and sheer water-cooled extravagance

The Define S2 is the latest leap forward in open-layout case design — an ingenious refinement of the zero-obstruction formula that cemented the series as the de facto standard for the silent high-performance build.

Limited only by your imagination

The S2 achieves increased airflow and water cooling capacity with nine total fan positions and 15% larger intake area than the previous generation. Radiators up to 420 mm install directly through the top by way of an innovative removable bracket with built-in fill port for easy access, and there’s room for radiators up to 360 mm in the front and 280 mm in the base. Pumps and reservoirs are supported right out of the box with integrated mounting locations and adjustable brackets.

Full USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C comes standard along with three Dynamic X2 fans, full length ventilated PSU shroud with alternate SSD mounts, and support for vertical GPU installation via the Flex VRC-25 riser, available separately.

Bolt-free tempered glass offers an exceptionally clear interior view thanks to an elegant push-to-lock latching mechanism, and Third generation ModuVent™ technology complements a generous application of industrial sound dampening to ensure your hardware is seen but not heard.

ModuVent™ technology

Third generation ModuVent™ technology gives users a choice between a soundproof steel cover or filtered multi-fan ventilation setup in the top panel

Multitude of mounting options

Customizable 2.5” storage solution with two brackets and a choice of four locations to hide drives beneath the motherboard tray or display them prominently on top of the PSU shroud

Easy-to-clean filters

Easy-to-clean high airflow nylon filters on the front, top, and base with full PSU coverage and front access for convenience

Optimized for silent computing with high-density industrial dampening on side, top and front panels

  • Sleek anodized aluminum front panel with sound dampening inlay

Extensive water cooling support

Radiators up to 420 mm install directly through the top by way of an innovative removable bracket with built-in fill port for easy access, and there’s room for radiators up to 360 mm in the front and 280 mm in the base. Pumps and reservoirs are supported right out of the box with integrated mounting locations and adjustable brackets.
  • Top: 420 mm/Front: 360 mm/Base: 280 mm

  • Full-length power supply shroud hides excess cables for a clean interior and features a removable panel for installation of larger front radiators

  • Concealed drive mounts for up to three 3.5" HDDs leave ample forward space for reservoirs and advanced water cooling setups

Excellent storage support

  • Concealed drive mounts for up to three 3.5" HDDs leave ample forward space for reservoirs and advanced water cooling setups

Keeping your cool

Through great attention to airflow and cooling, the Define S2 will have no problem keeping your rig both quick and quiet.
  • Nine fan positions with intuitive layout and clear airflow paths for massive cooling capacity

  • Nexus+ Smart Hub offers superior control of six additional case fans and three PWM devices via your motherboard

  • Three Fractal Design Dynamic X2 GP-14 140 mm fans come pre-installed with dual intakes and rear exhaust for optimal airflow right out of the box

”Overall, the Fractal Design S2 takes everything that is awesome about the R6, refines many elements, and offers better fans and I/O, while targeting a more focused group of potential users, which all makes for an excellent chassis.”

“The Fractal Design Define S2 is a PC case which we can definitely recommend. If you are looking for a mid-tower PC case with pre-installed acoustic insulation material as well as silent fans and on top of that it's fully compatible with custom watercooling gear, this is a great choice.”
“The Define S2 offers everything we've come to expect in a modern mid-tower, including a full-length PSU shroud and USB 3.1 Type-C Gen. 2 connectivity. Like its predecessor, the case can pack a whole lot of cooling into a relatively compact build.”
”In the introduction we said "Wow", And having spent a few days reviewing the Define S2 Vision, we're still saying "Wow."
