    Looks good and the sound dampening interior does make a difference. Temperatures are good.

    Unfortunately I seem to have received a used one from Newegg. There was a bent case screw and a mobo spacer already installed. I didn't bother to return it.

    ++ Fantastic mATX case with good cable management

    ++ LxWxH 41 x 21 x 41 cm

    +- Included Fractal Design Dynamic X2 GP-12 fans are not as quiet as I hoped. (Have replaced one at the front by two 140mm fans and in the meantime I have also replaced the 120mm fan in the back)

    The case has a very well thought-out design, and it's almost perfect. A few slightly-annoying points:

    There doesn't seem to be adequate ventilation for the hard drive cage if 2 x 140mm case fans are installed since they can only fit above the power supply shroud and the drive cage is underneath.

    The headphone jack on the front panel is incompatible with smartphone-style headset wiring like that of the iPhones.

    The power LED light is too bright and just shines straight out of the case. The HDD light on the other hand gives the ring around the power button a flickering effect. It would seem that they should be swapped.

    Great case. It is quiet and cool and has a small profile. No window. If the tempered glass version had been out, I would have gone that route perhaps. The cable management is great. The cooling is great. It gives you plenty of space for water cooling if that's your thing. I removed the hard drive underneath the shroud for better air flow. My old R4 was pretty quiet, but I like this smaller version better. I literally have to put my ear against the side to hear if it is on.

    from completed build Mister Mojo Ryzen

    Classy design, dead quiet fans, vast amounts of room, many cable management tools, and a power supply enclosure.

    I dearly love this case.

    from completed build First gaming PC build

    This case gave me a headache on build day. Was happy when I was assembling my parts together until I realised the front I/O panel was missing. I was like WTF...I panicked and searched everywhere but I couldn't find it. So I had to remove my motherboard and mounting screws from the case and return it to the store to get a new one. Unfortunately, they do not allow trades so I had to wait 2 weeks for a new front I/O. Not only that, the top left mounting hole was not drilled properly as well. I was struggling with inserting the mounting screw into it but it was too small so I had to use a screwdriver to loosen the hole. Aside from the 2 problems, the case was a breeze to build in, I love the PSU shroud as it hides the PSU and makes the build look clean and simple. The velcro straps and provided cable ties were really helpful with cable management (although I did a pretty bad job at it). Case is compact, quiet and good cooling temps which I love.

    from completed build Very Quiet Very Quick Gaming Rig

    The Define C is a great case to build in, very sensible use of space and with the PSU shroud it makes things nice and tidy, the soundproofing makes a good bit of difference too. Adding the dust cover to the top was a good move by Fractal too, nice to be able to stick a radiator up at the top in such a small case, with the right size graphics card you could run a 240 at the top and a 280 on the front.

    Very easy to work in and I'm glad I chose this over my mITX case I had before. Very nice!
