Bigger and better: building on the success of the awarding-winning Define XL

  • High density noise-reducing material for an optimal silent case **To achieve a high level of noise reduction, material with mass should be incorporated which is what we strive to achieve with the dense bitumen used on the side panels
  • Patented ModuVent™ design allowing the user to choose between optimal silence or maximum airflow
  • With a new internal layout and additional PCI expansion slots, it can harbor the most powerful enthusiast systems.
  • Both HDD cages can be removed or repositioned – Top HDD cage can be removed or repositioned for increased airflow whereas bottom HDD cage can be repositioned further into the case to allow for front radiator mount.
  • The case can fit water cooling equipment in the front, top, rear and bottom without major modifications.
  • Three-speed fan controller is strategically integrated in the front panel and supports up to 3 fans
  • Three Silent Series R2 fans are included, featuring hydraulic bearings which contribute to a longer life expectancy – Silent Series R2 retail fans now come standard in all cases
  • New tool-less front fan holder makes switching front fans a breeze
