Overall and FV

Fractal has managed to design a case that is both extremely functional and stylish but at the same time they have avoided everything all of the other manufactures do. This is an almost all steel design that is designed to near silent while still having great cooling. The strong construction and heavy duty powder coating put me at ease when traveling to and from the LAN, something I haven’t been able to do a long time without worrying. Typically you get into a situation where you can only have two of the three (good price, good performance, or silence), but after finding out about the Define Mini’s sub $100 price tag I think we finally found a case that can give you all three. At less than $100 bucks you are really getting a case that should be worth almost double that. I would suggest you run out and pick one up before they come to their senses! Once you do you can game without putting your ear plugs in, finally.

You might call him obsessed or just a hardcore geek. Wes's obsession with gaming hardware and gadgets isn't anything new, he could be found taking things apart even as a child. When not poking around in PC's he can be found playing League of Legends, Awesomenauts, or Civilization 5 or watching a wide variety of TV shows and Movies. A car guy at heart, the same things that draw him into tweaking cars apply when building good looking fast computers. If you are interested in writing for Wes here at LanOC you can reach out to him directly using our contact form.

Small cases have a soft spot in my heart. Loved this case when I saw it at CES and it continues to offer great spec's for a low cost of entry.

I have to admit it is a nice case, but I think I'd prefer its cousin the Arc Mini. It is the door that does it for me, I just don't like them. The rest of the case seems fairly similar to the arc mini so that would be my choice. Great review though and still a good case to have.
