Product information - Define R6 Grey Tempered Glass Midi-Tower - Grey

Even with its predecessor, the Define R6, the Swedish manufacturer Fractal Design left an impression on the industry. Now the popular case just got even better. Of course the sought after and innovative module case design remains, along with a slim - almost spartan - look afforded by few competitors, alongside premium technology and manufacturing: Smooth surfaces and an angular shape is combined to great effect with stylish tempered glass. All this helps to make the Define R6 into a real eye-catcher as well as a highlight of any setup.

The Define R6 from Fractal Design at a Glance:

  • Slim and timeless Midi-Tower in grey
  • Fits E-ATX (width of 285 mm) and lower
  • New front door design in brushed aluminium
  • Tempered glass side panel
  • Side panel, front and roof all insulated
  • Generously proportioned interior
  • Space for GPUs up to 440 mm long
  • Vertical installation of GPU possible
  • Three pre-installed 140 mm fans, total of nine possible
  • Space for four radiators up to 420 mm

Plenty of Space for Hardware and Cooling

The front side of this case is very plain and spartan, coming without any I/O panel, the drives and the large air inlets with their respective fans are concealed in the lower section and covered via the noise-dampened front door, which is now also constructed from aluminium. This door can be mounted to open to the left or the right. The left side of the case is in tempered glass to help show your hardware at its best. The I/O panel is located on the top of the elegant case. On this panel are located two USB 3.0-, two USB 2.0 ports and two audio jacks along with the pleasingly attractive power button and a discrete status LED.

The colour of the interior coordinates with the rest of the case and offers excellent cooling as well as plenty of space for components. As a result the case supports E-ATX motherboards with a PCB width of up to 285 mm as well as E-ATX-, ATX-, Micro-ATX- and Mini-ITX motherboards with seven expansion cards (horizontally). Vertical GPU installation is also possible, although a riser kit must be purchased separately.

Masses of Room for Drives & Sound Insulation

Apart from the two brackets for 2,5" drives on the rear of the motherboard tray, the Fractal Design Define R6 does away with a traditional drive cage. Instead of this, up to six brackets can be located horizontally above and below the PCIe expansion cards behind the front of the case. This is where 3,5- or 2,5" drives can be installed. A cover behind the glass window also serves as a supporting bracket as well as a means of concealing the drives. The front of the case offers space for a 5,25" drive.

The patented ModuVent design allows the roof, along with the dust filter, to be removed without requiring tools. This feature allows your hardware to remain clean and free of dust, keeping everything looking brand new. Three Fractal Design Dynamic X2 GP-14 140 mm fans help to ensure plenty of case airflow right from the factory, all operating with a minimum of noise to boot. Seven further fans cana be installed in the roof, front, bottom and sides. They can be controlled via the integrated Nexus+ Smart Hub, on which a total of six 3-Pin- and three 4-Pin fans connections can be found.

Lots of Water Cooling Options

CPU coolers can be installed in the Fractal Design R6 with a height of up to 185 mm, PSUs with built in downwards-facing fans can be up to 300 mm. Graphics cards are limited, with the installed HDD cage, to 440 mm in length. Their width is limited to 155 mm. All in all the case offers extensive options for water cooling. Radiators up to 420 mm in size can be installed in the roof and 360 mm in the front. The bottom of the case could also be used for 120 mm or 240 mm rads and the rear of the case has space for a 120 mm radiator.

The range of functions offered by the case are rounded out by great cable management options as well as rubberised passthroughs and velcro straps. The right side and roof are insulated as well. Washable filters are located in the roof, behind the front and on the underside of the power supply, which is concealed behind a shroud.

tolles Gehäuse

Ich habe mir das Gehäuse in grau gegönnt, da ich die Fractal Design typische Schwarzes Gehäuse mit weissen Teilen nicht sonderlich ansprechend finde.
Das Finish ist erste Sahne! Ein sehr dunkles Grau und an jeder Stelle perfekt verarbeitet.

Großartige Bewertungen kauf ich mir, da es davon im Netz mehr als genug gibt.
9 von 10, da ich mir noch eine Abdeckung für den vorderen unteren Bereich gewünscht hätte.

Trotzdem mit Abstand das beste Gehäuse, was ich je besaß.


Definitiv empfehlenswert!

Das Gehäuse bringt all das mit, was benötigt wird und kommt mit viel Zubehör! Es mangelt weder an Gummipuffern, noch an Schrauben. Die Mainboardschrauben sind nicht sooo hochwertig, aber bis auf eine waren alle Gewinde in Ordnung.

Eine Abdeckung hinter dem Laufwerk und den HDDs wäre noch toll, oder ein Einsatzblech für das Loch, das entsteht, wenn man den Frame nach hinten setzt.

Einzige Engstelle sind die EATX12V Anschlüsse im oberen Eck, aber trotzdem gut machbar.

PWM Lüfter wären schön gewesen.

Für den Preis Meckern auf hohem Niveau, alles in allem sehr zufrieden damit.

  • Basic-Tutorials - Fractal Design Define R6 im Test: Das modulare Gehäuse für Bastler

    Das Define R6 von Fractal Design paart gekonnt Funktion mit Design. Schlicht kommt es daher, das Gehäuse aus Schweden, ohne aber langweilig zu wirken. Das gebürstete Aluminium der Vordertür, die Jalousie-artigen Blenden vor den Luftfiltern am Deckel und der Vorderseite sehen ebenfalls schick aus. Schade, dass Fractal Design die Bügel für die Scharniere an der Vorderseite nicht etwas dezenter platziert hat, damit man auch auf die Tür verzichten kann, wenn man denn wollte – oder müsste.
