We were really impressed by the Fractal Design Define XL. Its construction quality is superb, allowing you to build a high-end system with very low noise level at a very affordable price. The only real negative of this case is that you will probably...

If you want a silent case above all else then the Fractal Design Define XL hits the mark. But if you prefer maximum versatility we would pass on this one for now and wait for version 2.0....

Fractal Design's known for producing solidly made PC cases that a very quiet, and it's new Define XL ticks both of those boxes with understated style and definite panache. It's also just about the heaviest case we've ever had to lug...

With the Define XL Fractal Design has managed to manufacture a high-end, high quality full tower with far less than what other companies ask for similar sized towers. Of course the Define XL is not perfect and it’s quite evident that some...

I arrived at home like normal the other day. After a long day of doing more than humanly possible, I put my bags down, sat down in my (Now relatively flat-cushioned) mesh back computer chair, and turned on my computer. After going through my usual...

If you ask me to hang a singular word on the Fractal Design Define XL, that word would be “refined”. I am a stickler for fit and finish, materials used, as well as attention to detail. The Define XL ranks at the top of the class in these...

Overall the Define XL proved to be a successful addition to the Fractal Design cases lineup. It's a large, stylish and quiet monolith that even comes at a very affordable price. The provided three fans combined with the controller are quiet enough...

The Define XL may just look like a simple size increase of the Define R3 and from an outside perspective it actually is. It is a bit wider, a bit taller and comes with more external drive bays and a larger number of USB 2.0 connectors, but retains the...

Video Review: The 'XL" in Fractal Design Define XL Case stands for extra large and that's no lie. With lots of room to work, plenty of drive bays, excellent cooling, cable management system, great styling and so much more, this is one of the...

We like the Define XL, but it has a number of niggling flaws that disappointed is as well. The poor positioning of the PSU power cable cut-out and the bizarre flap covering the CPU socket cut-out in the motherboard tray both stick out as irritants....

Varasemalt olen ma Fractal Design'i korpustest testinud Define R3 ja Arc Midi Tower'it. Täna on mul testis Define XL, mis on Fractal Design'i kõige suurem ja raskem korpus - kaaludes tühjana 17.95 kg. Välimuse poolest meenutab ta Define R3,...
