Written by Sanjin Rados

Review: Stylish and versatile

Fractal Design’s Define R3 case became quite popular in 2011 and it’s definitely a case worth loking at. The company tried to cater to users who like silent, tidy and stylish cases with plenty of room for 3.5’’ drives. Define R3 comes as successor to Fractal Design’s Define R2, and the company did its best to fix any shortcomings of the latter.

 

We tested Define R3 Black Pearl case. In case you don’t like black, or it simply doesn’t look right in your room, you can choose among the following colors: Arctic White, Black Pearl, Silwer Arrow, Titanium Grey. Note that the white Define R3 comes with white interior as well.
