Fractal Design Define S2 Review – Blackout Edition!

Rating: 8.5.

Fractal Design Define S2 is a variant on the Define R6 that is aimed squarely at water cooling enthusiasts. We admired the Define R6 and were pleased it ended 2017 on a high note. The two cases share so many features that it would be a good idea to take a look at our review to refresh your mindIn addition you can see Leo’s personal build in the Define R6 featured HERE.

The Define S2 is the same size and shape as the R6 and comes in the same four colour options we have come to expect from Fractal Design: Black, White, Blackout and Gunmetal Grey, and all have a tempered glass panel that covers the whole side of the case. Our sample is the Blackout model, and certainly the Define S2 looks nicely understated – cosmetically this case is very appealing.
