    The 3.5" bays don't seem to have any airflow at all?

    Re: Fractal Design Define S2

    The price seems more sensible for a premium case than other offerings I have seen recently, but it does look rather plain and dated as Hexus pointed out already. Definitely one for custom loops as it doesn't look all that amazing in the airflow department either.

    That being said, if you are looking for an all white and black build, or looking for a steady base for a modding project, then this would not be a terrible choice.

    Compared to the original Define S, I quite like the inclusion of the tempered glass side panel, but the price just seems like too much of an increase though.

    No 5.25 spot, you're dead to me. I need an optical drive, PERIOD. OK with floppy loss ages ago, but these are not the same things. Once flash drives were everywhere, those became pretty useless. I still consider a disc very useful for many use cases.

    The Define S and C series cases was never meant for that use case. That's what the Define R series is for.
