Is the Define S worth getting if i never gonna watercool? the R5 is almost 50€ more where i live. Lack of optical drives and fewer hdd places dont bother tho..

I think the Define S is a better buy than the Define R5. The open design means air flow will be much better and it comes in at a lower cost. If you do not need the optical drives or extra HD spacers then the S is the better choice.

I personally am waiting for a Define S done in an mATX design.

Love my Design S, even if you're air cooling in it, it'll be better than the R5 as its more open as stated above. If you have no need for the optical bay or more than 3 hdds and 2 ssds then go with the S.

I might pull the trigger on a Define S in mATX size.

I think Define S is even better for air cooling than water cooling since you can put the front intake fans in a direct air flow path to cpu cooler. Lack of fans for hdds is the only downside. But with a tiny bit of modding you can put a hdd cage at the bottom of the front.

I'm looking at getting a Fractal Define S.

My only concern is how can I control all of my 3Pin Fans that I will be moving over? I will be losing my current fan controller because it sits in the Disk Drive of my Carbide 500R.
