Fractal Design has finally joined the RGB craze with the Define S2 Vision. It sports as many tempered glass panels as possible, but still gives you the ability to walk the line between lighting accents and liquid-cooling possibilities. Naturally, all the fans within the case are RGB, and Fractal also includes a controller to adjust the color choices.

The GeForce GTX 1650 is NVIDIA's latest Turing release, going head-to-head with AMD's Radeon RX 570. MSI's Gaming X is a premium rendition of this chip with a much improved cooler, idle-fan stop, and large overclock out of the box. Noise levels are amazing and make the card whisper quiet.
