Fractal Design announce the Define R5 chassis

With space for up to eight internal hard drives, any full size video card and incorporated dense sound-absorbing material all wrapped up in Fractal's signature clean overall design, the Fractal R5 case has arrived.




Self-quoted in their press release as "the definition of silence", Fractal sets out yet again to build on their simple, elegant and high-quality Scandinavian design concepts as seen throughout their other cases in the Define series. Although somewhat lacking in different types of models on offer, Fractal has decided to steer away from 'giving it all' and focusing on a few simple case design concepts - working harder on singular projects to make them right.


Fractal make sure to mention that water cooling is a viable option in this case, allowing the user to install radiators up to 420mm in the top and 360mm in the front of the chassis. However if air cooling is more your thing, they're providing two GP14 140mm low noise fans as standard.


If you're looking for a windowless version, it's going to set you back a release price of $109.99, of you can add an extra $10 if you're wanting to display your internals and go for the window side panel option. The Fractal Define R5 comes in a selections of colors including; black, titanium and white - classy colors that help show off their high design quality features such as metal HDD trays and a three-speed fan controller.


The Fractal Define R5 is available now from your local major retailers.
