Overall and Final Verdict
Because of its simplicity, reliability, and functionality, the Define XL R2 is a great choice for enthusiasts. The chassis is also a good option for case modding for the same reasons. LanOC community member SpeedBump used the first iteration (by the way, the R2 or revision 2 provides a few updates such as USB 3.0) for his “Snow White and the i7 Cores” mod that he debuted at one of our LANs (you can check out the build log here). Fractal has done a great job building a chassis that looks great and support a range of components. It is definitely heavy, but you may find it worth the effort to bring to a LAN party to show off.
