Room for water cooling – everywhere

This updated chassis carries on the family tradition of providing superb cooling and ventilation capabilities with exceptional expandability, in a sleek and stylish Scandinavian form.

The Define XL R2, which includes our innovative ModuVent™ feature, has an updated internal layout that offers even greater modularity and flexibility, including capacity for 9 PCI cards and two HDD cages that can be repositioned to provide even more space for water cooling radiators.

Key features

  • High density sound-dampening material for an optimal silent case

  • Patented ModuVent™ design allows the user to choose between optimal silence or maximum airflow

  • With a new internal layout and additional PCI expansion slots, it can harbor the most powerful enthusiast systems

  • Both HDD cages can be removed or repositioned for increased airflow or allowing a front radiator mount

  • Easily fits water cooling equipment in the front, top, rear and bottom without major modifications

  • Three-speed fan controller is strategically integrated in the front panel and supports up to 3 fans

  • Three Silent Series R2 fans are included, featuring hydraulic bearings which contribute to a longer life expectancy

  • New tool-less front fan holder makes switching front fans a breeze

"Truth be told, as far as acoustics in an enthusiast-grade case go, you're really going to have a rough time beating what Fractal Design has accomplished here. Other cases will cool better, sure, but the XL R2 still cools well, and it's able to snuff out a lot of noise in the process. The price is right, the performance is there, and it's exceptionally easy to recommend the XL R2 for a power user that still wants a quiet system."
"We are particularly impressed with the acoustic performance of this case as it is extremely quiet under any situation, only registering above 30 dBA at the maximum fan setting."
"The Define XL R2 Black Pearl is a case worthy of many awards. There simply is nothing to knock for this, and just so much to love about it! You really need to seriously consider this chassis for any build on up to XL-ATX."
