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

Its predecessor, the Define R6, from Swedish manufacturer Fractal Design entered the market with a splash. Now the popular case is getting even better. Of course the sought after and valued modular case design remains, and the case offers a slim, spartan aesthetic as few other Midi-Towers do. The case offers a clean look with an angular design - now with added stylish tempered glass. All this helps to make the new Define R6 into a real looker among cases generally as well as a highlight amid its peers.

The Define R6 from Fractal Design at a Glance:

  • Sleek and timeless Midi-Tower design in black
  • Fits E-ATX boards (285 mm wide) and below
  • New brushed aluminium front door
  • 33% tinted tempered glass side panel
  • Side panel, front and roof all insulated
  • Generously proportioned interior
  • Space for 440 mm long graphics card
  • Vertical GPU installation possible
  • Three pre-installed 140 mm fans, nine possible in total
  • Space for four radiators up to 420 mm

Plenty of Space

The front of this case is once again plain and uninterrupted by an I/O panel - the drives and large air inlets with the fans located behind them are situated in the lower part of the case. They are then concealed by a noise dampened aluminium front door, which can be mounted to open to the left or right. The left side of the case comes in tempered glass in order to allow you to show off your hardware in its best light. The I/O panel is located on the top of this elegant case. The panel offers two USB 3.0-, two USB 2.0 ports and two audio jacks as well as an attractively designed power button and discreet status LED.

The interior matches the colour of the case and the colour is accented by the addition of white drive bays and fans, which enable superb cooling as well as plenty of space for components. Aside from 285 mm wide eATX boards, the case is capable of s upporting ATX-, Micro-ATX- and Mini-ITX- motherboards and seven expansion cards horizontally. Mounting the GPU vertically is also possible - although a riser kit must be purchased separately for this.

Plenty of Space for Drives along with Multiple Dust Filters

In addition to two 2,5" brackets for drives on the rear of the motherboard tray. Fractal Design forfeited the traditional drive cage in the Define R6. Instead of this, up to six brackets can be located behind the front panel either above or below the PCIe expansion cards. Tool-lessly installable 3,5- or 2,5" drives can be installed here. A bracket behind the glass window serves as a support and also helps to hide the drives. The front of the case also maintains sufficient space for a 5,25" drive.

Thanks to the patented ModuVent covers, further fans can be installed without needing any tools. Unused fan slots can remain covered and sound-insulated for maximum noise reduction. These also ensure dust is kept out of the case and your valuable hardware is protected and remains like new. Three Fractal Design Dynamic X2 GP-14 140 mm fans ensure great airflow in the case's default setup, along with incredibly low noise levels. Seven additional fans can be installed in the roof, front, bottom and side. They can be controlled via the integrated Nexus+-Smart Hub, which comes with a total of six 3-Pin- and three 4-Pin fan connectors.

Extensive Water Cooling Options

CPU coolers can be installed in the Fractal R6 with a height of up to 185 mm, power supplies with the pre-installed bottom fan can be up to 300 mm in size. Graphics cards can be up to 440 mm long with the installed HDD cage, even with a fan in front. They can be up to 155 mm wide. To this end this designer case offers an array of possibilities for water cooling. Radiators may be up to 420 mm in the roof and 360 mm in the front. The bottom can be used for 120/240 mm radiators and on the rear is 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.

Rundum gut

Sehr gut verarbeitet. Genug Platz für alle Komponenten. Man hat die Wahl zwischen Platz für viele Laufwerke oder offenem Layout für optimale Kühlung. SSDs und eine 3,5" Platte passen dennoch, gut versteckt hinter dem MB. Die vorinstallierten Lüfter sind kaum hörbar. Einzig das Frontdesign könnte etwas mehr Zierde vertragen, ist arg unauffällig.

  • 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.
