Fractal Design Define R6 Review: The Modular Housing for Builders

Diversity of the Define R6

Our version is the Define R6 in Gunmetal with a side made of tempered glass. The fans are completely in black, the PCI slot bezels are in the case color. The version with tempered glass is also available in black with white fan blades, white drive bays and white PCI slot bezels as well as completely in black. The white version of the Define R6 with tempered glass has an outer black front door and PCI slot bezels in the same color. The fans are completely in white. All these variants are also available without tempered glass.

Fractal Design Define R6 Review

The Define R6 from Fractal Design skilfully combines function with design. It simply comes from the case from Sweden, but without seeming boring. The brushed aluminium of the front door, the venetian blinds in front of the air filters on the lid and the front also look chic. It’s a shame that Fractal Design didn’t place the hinges on the front of the door more discreetly, so that you can do without the door if you wanted to – or had to.

It is unfortunate that Fractal Design has firmly riveted the power supply cover. This will obstruct or even prevent the installation of large radiators or AiOs on the floor, as the manufacturer advertises in its operating instructions. However, there is still enough space on the front and especially on the lid for additional radiators and the recess in the power supply cover perfectly accommodates an expansion tank with pump.

There is nothing wrong with the workmanship of the case. The materials are all of high quality and well processed. The edges are all neatly deburred and the components of the extraordinarily modular case fit perfectly, regardless of whether you choose the standard layout or the open layout. The Define R6 is equally suitable for those who want to build a mature workstation and those who want to build the perfect gaming computer.

Value for Money

The Define R6 from Fractal Design is a well thought out and chic case with many options, except for some minor criticisms.
