Fractal Design Define S2 Vision RGB Case Review

Not so long ago we tested the case Define S2 by Fractal Design. For those who haven’t read the article or can’t remember it: The case was rated as excellent by us, which is mainly due to the drive-free interior and the resulting great freedom for system construction.

Now the manufacturer has introduced a further successor model, which at least optically differs drastically from its predecessor. It also differs from all other Fractal Design enclosures presented to date, as the brand was previously known for its optical restraint. Of course, we didn’t miss the chance to take a closer look at this case as well. What we think of the new Define S2 Vision RGB, what it scores with and what we think is worth knowing about this case, you can read in our latest review.
