Fractal Design Define R3 Black Pearl ATX Case USB3.0 Retail

A new, improved version of the bestselling Fractal Design Define R2 case. This is the Fractal Design Define R3 Black Pearl Case.

Improvements over the Fractal Define R2 include:

* Improved air flow with updated fans
* Improved noise absorbing material
* Bigger hole in M/B plate for mounting of CPU Coolers
* Improved cable routing possibilities
* Reset button, located behind the front panel door
* Many small quality improvements, including improved scratch resistant coating

The hugely popular Fractal Define R2 case has just been improved! The Fractal Design Define R3 reaches new heights in combining stylish, contemporary design with maximum functionality and noise absorbing features. The minimalistic, yet stunning front panel design, fitted with noise absorbing material on the inside, creates an aura of exclusivity.

Improved model over Fractal Design Define R2
Stunning front panel design
Patent pending ModuVent? design - removable vents!
Pre-fitted with dense, noise absorbing material
Motherboard tray cut-out, allows easy access to rear of motherboard
Eight HDD-trays, with silicone mounting
Can accommodate up to seven 120/140mm fans, two supplied
PCI fan controller for 3 fans included
Easily removable front fan filters with clip-on holders for 120mm fans

The sleek interior is matched with pre-fitted, dense noise absorbing material on the side panels, efficiently absorbing noise and vibrations. You can fit an astonishing total of eight 3.5" hard drives into this case, using the user friendly HDD-trays. All HDDs are mounted using black silicone mounts to reduce vibrations. The PSU is mounted in the bottom of the case, where it rests on four rubber pads. There is also a convenient pull-out air filter beneath PSU, this filters the air that comes into the PSU, assuming you are using a power supply with a 120mm fan.

Are you one of those users always ending up with a case full of tangled cables? Not any more - the Fractal Design Define R3 offers a convenient and good looking way of hiding them away. The motherboard has rubber covered holes in which you can easily route the cables behind the motherboard, keeping things nice and tidy. There is also a cut-out on the motherboard tray. This is ideal if you are a user that changes their CPU cooler often. The cut-out will allow you to change CPU cooler brackets without having to remove the motherboard from the system. This hole has been increased in size compared to the Fractal Define R2, providing greater compatibility.

At the front of the case you will find space for two 120mm fans, with one 120mm fan supplied. Both fans have air filters and are designed to introduce cooler air into the case as well as aid cooling of the hard drives. You'll also notice that the inside of the door is coated in noise reducing foam. The only down side to this is that the Fractal Design Define R2 can not accommodate a fan controller that fits into a 5.25" drive bay due to space restrictions. But that should not be a problem because Fractal Design have supplied a very handy little fan controller that uses up one PCI slot, which can control up to three fans!

Graphics card and CPU cooler compatibility

As for CPU coolers, the maximum height is 165mm. This means virtually all of our CPU coolers will be compatible with this chassis.
