[Canada Computers] Fractal Design Define R6 USB-C Tempered Glass Blackout Edition $175

I've been watching a couple of PC cases and this one finally came on sale. There are still several left in stock and you can order for delivery or pickup. Not sure when this deal expires but their weekly sale ends on the 29th so that's my best guess.

This is a really solid case with a lot of room for cable management.

Keep in mind the PWM controllers are not unique. The bottom-most PWM input replicates the speed to all of the remaining PWM fans (3 total, the master being the bottom input).

I decided to not use it, and just plugged my 3 noctua pwm fans directly onto the motherboard.

Also noise dampening is a step down from R5 as the top panel is now no longer sealed (it is detachable for easy access, which has its advantages).

I have an older model of this. Really nice case and easy to clean.

Not the greatest case in terms of thermals though. I suspect its all that sound deadening material it advertises acts as a sort of insulator.

The link above is for the Cooler Master H500 Mesh but they compare it to many cases including this Fractal Design one.

Have this case for my HTPC. If you can get your hands on the extra drive cages its awesome for a RAID/UNRAID/FLEXRAID SERVER. Have 9x3TB RAID 6 With a 8TB BACKUP. No issues with thermals for this application.

Amazing case but I bought this for $160 a year ago so the price isn't unheard of.
