    If you're directly comparing this to the Define R6, why is the Define R6 not in the comparison tables for heat/noise? Or am i blind? :S

    Re: Fractal Design Vector RS

    Nice review While I applaud Fractal Design for trying something a bit different, I have to admit the sloping roof would be a bit of a negative for me, as I often rest things on top of my case, like a USB fan during hot evenings in summer. Regarding aesthetics, the case looks ok, but I do prefer their own Define S2 Vision more, although that is quite a bit more expensive too.

    Re: Fractal Design Vector RS

    All things being equal it's sad to see that Fractal Design also has succumbed to the "bling bling" (aka "tempered glass and RGB ad nauseum") crowd. Yet they refuse to make simple but useful design changes to e.g. the I/O panel. I've said it countless times before (and I'll probably say it countless times more), but why does the panel need to be on top of the case, in a way that makes the USB connectors even more prone to collect dust.

    At this price point, the review really should include comparison versus the Be Quiet Dark Base 700 and Phanteks Evolv X, which are arguably two of the best cases at this price point.
