Fractal Design R2

Cases

Conclusion

The Fractal Design Define R2 case is an in-between ATX case. Its features aren’t in the budget area but neither is its price. Since Fractal Design isn’t a very well-known brand yet, compared to bigger names, it is hard to come up with a product that makes people consider buying yours instead of theirs.

Personally I would recommend this case to anyone who wants a better looking and a bit more functional case than the budget ATX cases, but only if they aren’t on a tight budget for the rest of the rig. The high amount of HDD/SSD trays make  this case sort of interesting for people with a lot of data, but appropriate  cooling needs to be installed at the optional fan grids.

XSReviews.co.uk awards the Fractal Design Define R2 case with 3.5/5 stars for a decent product but lack of innovation and sharp pricing.

ProsCons
Plenty of room for HDD/SSDsDesign is rather boring
Removable Dust filtersRather minimalistic front panel
Decent and quiet stock coolingPrice is not very competitive
Cables management
