Fractal Design Define S2 Vision RGB Case Review

Installation
Starting off with installation we will be installing our motherboard first. Since this case supports E-ATX motherboards getting our ATX board in was no problem at all.

Hard drive installation is next, we will be installing all solid state drives so we’ll be using the two smaller SSD mounts. They come out of the case so you can install your SSDs on them and then you simply reinstall them with the SSDs attached.

Power supply installation is next. For this you remove the power supply bracket from the rear of the case and attach it to your power supply. Then very carefully slide your power supply in front the back of the case. Using the thumbscrews on the bracket secure it and you are good to go.

Moving back to the other side of the case we can install our graphics card. There is plenty of room in the main compartment so getting even the longest graphics cards installed is no problem.

With all of our main hardware installed it is time to connect everything. We had no problem routing cables and cleaning up all of our cable mess with the velcro straps and cable tie-down points on the backside of the motherboard tray. Since none of the fans were wired to the hub you’ll need to do that as well as connect the 3-pin addressable RGB cables. The fans can be daisy-chained so first connect the RGB strip to the top fan and make your way down finishing with the rear fan. You’ll then want to connect the last ARGB cable to either the included RGB controller or an ARGB header on your motherboard. Another thing to mention is that if you remove the top tempered glass panel it makes it very easy to connect your EPS connector.

With everything connected looking at the main side of the case we have a very clean build. Even with everything installed there is quite a lot of extra room.

Powering our system on the fans and RGB light up the case nicely. I would say that the case needs at least one more RGB strip to really illuminate everything.
