    Fractal Design Define 7 Compact

    Smaller, more affordable, but not quite as good.

    Re: Fractal Design Define 7 Compact

    So close to being what I'm looking for... the full define 7 is just a tad too big for where I want to put it (sloping roof of loft conversion doesn't help)

    Would have liked it just a little bit bigger with support from 3 or 4 ssd's behind the motherboard rather than below the gpu's... and it's not like they haven't done this because the define c has a 3 ssd bracket over the cpu opening...

    And it's so nice to see a case without glass and rgb lighting. I don't want rgb lighting because it affects the colour accuracy of my work and I don't really want glass either as I can see it getting broken.

    This is basically nothing more than a Meshify C with a plain front panel..

    To be fair, the Define 7 series of cases are actually a new design, and are not the same as the R6 / S2 type clones, where one chassis is the base for about 4 different cases.

    See how one side of the top of the chassis completely comes away when you remove parts for assembly? None of the older chassis' do that.
