I would like to thank Fractal Design for supplying the review sample.
Fractal Design is adding to the Define family with the Define S chassis. Having reviewed every R series chassis the company has ever produced, it is great to see such an evolution as the Define S specifically tailored around housing custom liquid-cooling loops. While Fractal Design cases generally play well with radiators, most of them do not offer dedicated mounting possibilities for the other two major parts in a custom loop: pumps and radiators. This is where the Define S comes into play.
