Now here’s where the Fractal Design Define Mini C gets interesting, for a start look at how spacious the unit is.
And not only is the Define Mini C spacious, it comes with a metal front panel that covers from front to back so you’re clear from messy cable management issues even with non-modular PSU.
On the upper side there seems to be sufficient clearance for a radiator.
Here’s the view of the front area where you are able to mount up to a 280mm radiator unit.
The area under the motherboard tray is also very important for cable management and Fractal Design did a great job on this aspect that even the default cables are tied neatly with velcro straps.
Here’s what the mess looks like when I use my non-modular Fractal Design power supply unit. This is just to show how it handles cables very well despite the lack of effort in getting things in place. 😛
As for drive bays, well you have plenty. Not overwhelming but plenty for the general user – 2 – 3.5″ HDD positions; 3 – 2.5″ dedicated SSD unit positions
Lastly I wish to highligh Fractal Design’s generosity in having rubber grommets on every available opening and that makes the cable management look even sweeter.
The Fractal Design Define Mini C is one awesome casing for the Micro ATX setup, it retails at around RM 379 and it should be your choice of casing if you love silent setup as I do.
