It is a new year and everyone is ready to make their resolutions... that they will ultimately fail to achieve 2 weeks into the year. Those who made the resolution to finally update their outdated PC case this year can get some help from Fractal Designs with the new Define XL R2.
This is not an all new case, but an update to the original Define XL. The new Define XL R2 (Revision 2) maintains all the features we loved in the original such as pre-installed sound damping material, high quality build, and aggressive pricing. The R2 introduces the ModuVent feature, an update internal design. This brings PCI card slots up to 9 and incorporates 2 HDD cages that can be repositioned several ways.
This is nothing new to the industry, but it is a feature you often only find on the most expensive cases. The Define XL R2 has an MSRP of $129.95 which positions it against several great cases, none of which have a flexible HDD cage assembly.
