We really appreciate your mail. I have good news for you. We are just starting our US office in Dallas/Texas.
Paul Heimbuch is our President for Fractal Design North America Inc.
We are with the highest priority busy to get Fractal Design into the major resellers like NewEgg and Tiger Direct.
As you can imagine it takes more then a couple of days to be listed into the biggest Etailers in the world but we are working hard on it.
I think the DEFINE Mini is a very good choice. You will like the case. Thanks a lot for your interest in our brand.

Paul will contact you and will keep you updated. Our goal is to be in the next quarter available in the US.

I will come back to you a.s.a.p. with the answer on the technical questions about the DEFINE Mini.


Best Regards,


Jens Harnisch Sales Manager

It's cool that they bothered to give a personalized response. I'm not in the market for a new case, but those look really clean.

Awesome idea guys n galls. This is my first post on these forums and I found you from my Youtube analytics's smile.gif I own the Fractal Design DEFINE R3 Arctic White Case you might have seen on Youtube if you searched for reviews for it.

If you get a good following with a mind of helping others with modding FD's box's then I can give you some webspace to make a more official site.

Together we may even have some small influence on forthcoming products from FD in Sweden, ye never know.

General question about Fractal cases, can the door be swaped to the other side?

I'd disagree with any "..meant to be..." opinions on a Fractal Design R2/3, I felt they've tried to meet a very broad user needs. From the very silent and standard office environment to the bleeding edge end of computer enthusiast, why else include so many cooling options?

But I do agree with you that its never necessary to add lights and windows and even over-clock a computer, but that's why there is forums such as this very forum, so we can all share our own unique perspectives and experiences with our fellow enthusiasts.

....now back on-topic, My only gripe as it is with Fractal Design is not including more fan filters for the other 3 fan options and no way to purchase more from them frown.gif. But I managed to find DEMCiflex filters online and they where very helpful in getting me 3 more 140mm white filters for my Fractal Design R3 Arctic White STORM - TROOPER.

Hi guys!

I'm wondering about this cases airflow/coolness. Are the 2 included fans enough to keep the whole system cool, or should I invest in additional fans? I'm also pretty concerned about the noise (I don't want it to be too loud). So perhaps 1 to the front, and 1 on the top? Does it become too loud if I install 1 fan on the top? And can u guys recommend some good silence/performance-ratio fans, that perhaps u r using?

What have u made to improve ur cases performance/silence?
