Fractal Design builds on the success of its awarding-winning Define XL computer case with the Define XL R2. 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 Fractal Design’s innovative ModuVent™ feature, has an updated internal layout that offers greater expandability, modularity and flexibility, including capacity for 9 PCI cards and two HDD cages that can be repositioned to provide more space for water cooling radiators.
High density noise-reducing material for an optimal silent case
Patented ModuVent™ design allowing 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 - Top HDD cage can be removed or repositioned for increased airflow whereas bottom HDD cage can be repositioned further into the case to allow for front radiator mount.
The case can fit 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 – Silent Series R2 retail fans now come standard in all cases
New tool-less front fan holder makes switching front fans a breeze

its a lot lager then my old case its got mass room for all kinds of motherboards and most psu's and cable management is boom way easy in this case so much room I cant say room enough tho and im using a a10-6800k with a asus mobo f2a85-m csm , 16 gig of ddr3 corsair 1866 mem >.< need better hd and psu tho still rocking the 6 year old hd from old pc and psu but ill get to it when I can afford it
This is a great case for a relatively silent build. I used this as a file server (upgrade from Antec P280), added an additional front 140mm fan for a positive air pressure configuration (3 140mm intake, 1 140mm exhaust), all on 7V using the built in fan controller. Even with 11 3.5" harddrives, the noise is quite acceptable. I really wish the fan filters were easier to remove for cleaning.
The only other small complaint is that the very top tray of the upper harddrive caddy is just a tiny bit too short to support a full sized 3.5" harddrive, fits a 2.5" SSD easily though.
