This week on the Podcast we talk about our two reviews this week including Fractal Design's Define S2, Intel officially launching the Core i9-9900K, all the new Z390 boards and more!
- Computex 2018
Fractal Design's Define Series of cases has to be one of their most popular. We've reviewed quite a few of the Define cases over the years. Well Fractal Design is back with a new Define case in their Define S2, which is a successor to the original Define S case.
If you are familiar with Fractal Design you probably know their Core and Define case series. These are the company's most popular and you will find quite a lot of cases in each series. Well Fractal Design has introduced a new series which focuses on high airflow as well as having current features like tempered glass panels, easy SSD mounting, and more. The series is called Meshify and today we are checking our the Meshify C case, which is an ATX mid-tower case. Let's take a look and see what this new case series is all about!
Meshify strikes an aggressive pose in the Fractal Design lineup with unparalleled cooling performance and a defiant new look. Like diamond facets, the angular asymmetry of the Meshify C carves a space uniquely its own as a new dominant force in high-airflow design.
Fractal Design's Refine series focuses on providing a sleek and silent case that doesn't cut corners with regards to quality and design. Previous releases like the Define R5 have been very popular with users wanting a high-end feature set that is paired up with near-silent operation. Today we are taking a look at Fractal Design's latest case in the Define series, the R6. The Define R6 has been designed from the ground up and incorporates many of the features that the Define series is known for, like sound-dampened side panels, tons of fan filtering, and ModuVent technology, and adds popular new features like seamless tempered glass, and a built-in fan hub. Can the R6 continue to carry the torch for Fractal Design and their Define series? Let's find out!
So many cases on the market today are made to be all things to all people. However, for many this results in a chassis full of empty bays, unused mounts and excess bulk. Created for those who demand a flexible platform for a powerful ATX or Micro ATX build that wastes no space, the Define C TG Series is the perfect solution to satisfy this balance of capacity and efficiency while opening up the side thanks to a full tempered glass side panel.
When you hear the name Fractal Design you instantly think PC Case, which you should. Fractal Design came on the scene with their PC cases, many of which we've reviewed over the years. Back in 2014 Fractal Design entered the all-in-one liquid cooling market with their Kelvin line of coolers. Well it is 2017 and Fractal Design is releasing a new line of all-in-one liquid CPU coolers. The Celsius series builds upon proven technology with cutting edge advancements and premium sound dampening materials to deliver extreme cooling performance with minimum noise output. Fractal Design in launching the Celsius Series with the S24 (240 mm) and S36 (360 mm). These coolers have some features that you just won't find on other AiO's out there. We are taking a look at the S24 today, let's jump in!
This week's build comes from our friends at GGF Lan Party. According them the "Deluxe Nano" build was a single-day build, which is quite impressive. The build is done inside a Fractal Design Nano S White Edition case so most of the build has a white design, but they did use a unique teal color for the watercooling coolant. Be sure to check this build out!
